Still in use even after all these years. Thank you ASUS!! 2/15/2020 7:05:40 PM

Pros: This board was built to last. After 8 years of continuous use, it still works great.

Cons: None (other than I wish that my other builds with prior motherboards had this successful).

Overall Review: The only things that have been upgraded after after the initial build with this motherboard (8 years ago) have been:
A.) 1 Main Power Supply (It finally kicked the bucket and died)
B.) 3 Video Cards (I wanted improved graphics for gaming)
C.) 1 Main Processor (Same reason as stated in item "B")
D.) 6 Hard Drives (Improved system performance with the arrival of solid state drives & remembering a hard lesson learned for allowing a hard drive to operate until failure ... never again after getting yelled at by my wife!!)
E.) 1 Optical Drive (Upgraded from a DVD burning to a Blu-Ray Burning Drive)
F.) Operating System (Changed from Win7 to Win10 for obvious reasons)
I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of this board and then some!!

Very nice! 1/13/2018 7:18:16 PM

Pros: So after i got my rma back from Newegg, It worked almost perfect(see cons) Very stable now, copper coated heat spreading pcv, sturdy and thats good for heavy heat sinks.

Cons: High vdroop at 1.45 volts in bios I drop to 1.37 under prime. 1.35 drops tp 1.31 so it does get worse the more juice you give the cpu. Also I cant get a real core temp reading, best i can do is the asus probe 2 temps

Overall Review: 955be at 3.8 at 1.45 vcore(got to 4.2 on air in x86 but not x64) corsair 750tx, haf 932, 8g mushkin 1333, asus v2 470 at 800 core, mugen 2 cooler, running at 20C on MB, 29C CPU asus probe. prime in place large 3 hours 4 threads MB is 28C cpu 41C!!!
Glad i got this MB! -----2018 Jan 3rd edit. This MB is still going strong in 2018, due to the chipset limitations it has been replaced a long time ago but it still works, and still finds use daily all thees years later. I am hard on motherboards too. It is by now a working computing fossil, an artifact from a by gone area when nVidia still made chipsets, the last in a line from the mythic "nforce" boards.

Eh...just OK 6/20/2013 5:54:33 PM

Pros: Easy to overclock and overclocks very well. With an inexpensive H80i cooler I'm able to hit 4GHz EASY and super stable with this board using my Phenom IIx6 1090T.

Cons: Bad vdroop...7-10% in some cases but obviously not that big of a deal as you'll still get a pretty nice OC from it. What absolutely sucks about this board is that there's no SATA III, no USB3, no future FX-Core capability as it's only an AM3. Slots are very close together so if you're running SLI you will lose a PCIx1 slot as it will be covered by one of your cards

Overall Review: I only got this because it had an nforce chip on it and at the time I thought i really needed that for SLI. What a mistake...

Still going strong 3/6/2013 6:00:13 PM

Pros: Have had this board since 12/2010 no issues...bought open box deal and was very happy with the gamble...running an unlocked x2 555 to x4 b55 @ 4.07 GHz stable all day even in a warm climate...had gtx460 sli to start just recently switched to gtx 660 sli no issues...excellent choice for the "mid-high" range builder.

Cons: wish it had sata 6gb/s and usb 3 oh well

Overall Review: My system:
Phenom X4 B55 @ 4.07 GHz<FSB @ 220/18.5 multiplier>-1.50v (1.44-1.47 after vdroop)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 (dual fans)
Gigabyte GTX 660s in sli
8gb G skill ripjaws ddr3 1600 @ 1760 8-9-9-24-2T 1.6v
120gb Samsung 840 Series SSD as boot drive
2 HDDs i dont care to list
Cooler master 912 all fan slots filled
LG blu ray player
Vizio 32' HDTV (1080p)
Cosair TX-650watt PSU
----------
WEI SCORES
CPU-7.5
RAM-7.8
GAMING/AERO-7.9
PRIMARY HARD DISK-7.7 would have got 7.9 if the board supported sata III
using artic silver 5 for thermal paste on cpu 27-30 degrees celsius idle 47 degrees celsius under prime95 load even in warm/mild room temp
Hope this was informative and helpful :-)

Worst Board EVER!!!!! 11/22/2012 9:41:32 AM

Pros: One of the only six core ready sli boards on the market when it came out.

Cons: Had bad dimm slot out of the gate, sent back replaced and a year later SATA port dies . I sent back the board and received a replacement board that had another bad dimm slot. I sent it back and recieved a board in working order. Not a full year later and the EATX12V port dies.
