5 out of 5 eggsTwo time looser

Pros: Speedy, lots of capability. Super bios control.

Cons: This is the second one I have owned. The first one cooked off. I thought it was my fault so I just ate it. Now the same thing has happened with mobo #2 and I know it was not my fault. Maybe first one was not my fault either. Regardless, I am not a rookie. I have built my own desktops for about 20 years now and love ASUS stuff and Newegg. We will see how ASUS responds when I ask for an RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: Fast shipping and well package from newegg. Handles a FX 8350 well. Solid BIOS. It has a decent amount of features at a reasonable price. It may not have msata or a lot of other features that Intels chipset offers, but I don't plan on using anything like that anytime soon.

Cons: Not a major con, but the Socket temp does get really hot before any serious overclocking. I hit 70C easily with just a 4.4Ghz @ 1.367 vcore on a FX 8350.

I ended up putting a 80mm fan on the back and it dropped the temps down for me to get to 4.6Ghz @ 1.404 vcore.

This is with a Noctua NH-D14 in an Antec p100 case.

Other Thoughts: I actually had an i7 2600K with an Asus PZ68-V LX. Well that motherboard died on me a few months ago and Asus informed that I'm out of the 3 year warranty period. How convenient..... I bought a few used motherboards online and had an awful experience with that. So I sold my i7 to a friend and only paid a difference of $120 for this new motherboard and FX 8350. Pretty happy with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Board!

Pros: Great, no problems! My main work station for over 5 months. I'm running a 3.5Ghz 8 core and a 500GB Samsung SSD and GeForce GTX 660 2GB video card.

I'm so spoiled by this build it's pathetic.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had extraordinary good fortune with Asus boards. I buy the best board I can afford and skimp on other thinks if I need to.
I have room to upgrade this system. Faster CPU, more memory, additional video card.

This board will probably still be in service and viable five or six years from now.

By the time I need to build another one from scratch we'll probably be buyin' our parts directly from the space freakin' aliens who originated the technology.

5 out of 5 eggsOver a year later, it's great

Pros: This motherboard looks great and has some nice heat sinks on it. I have hit 4.7GHz on my 8320 and can keep going, just haven't gotten to it yet. Point is, the motherboard hasn't stopped me yet.

Cons: Not the greatest for crossfire and SLI, but I knew that going into it and that's not why I bought it. Just a headsheads up for everyone else.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy puppy i am

Pros: i am very glad to happen across this Asus product ..

i decided to upgrade and came across the reviews here .. did a little more research to know for sure .. glad i finalized the deal ..

Good board i was planning to go to the next gen .. but this does what i need to do for now ...

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: The Bio's is a marvel, something to be appreciated .. i can wonder around in there for hours, just looking through it, with full mouse support is uncanny ...

Had to do more research to figure out how to make changes but it was well worth the studies ..

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Mobo

Pros: I got this 2 and a half years ago. The PC runs all the time and has never given me a reason to change it. I am going to upgrade in a little bit but only so i can get something faster. Otherwise i have no complaints. I've changed out hard drives and dusted it out several times. It also survived a blown powersupply.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard!!

Pros: Another good product from ASUS. I have several and they have all been quality. Easy to set up, really nice BIOS, great onboard sound, but will be upgrading for front panel support. NOT overclocking this board so I cannot comment on that. Went with AMD FX 6-core proc. Everything is easy to access. Great driver support from AMD on this chipset. DID upgrade the BIOS after installing, there was a new update that added some new features to the BIOS. Version 2501 as of this review. Easy Flash upgrade using a flash drive.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Good purchase for all you AMD fans out there. Good benchmarks for this board and the FX processor.

Pros: Good layout, nice bios interface is user friendly, good heatsinks extra usb 3.0 plug for case mounted ports
