4 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo

Pros: more options that you can shake a stick at, fast, very good upgradability, and most importantly, it works great.

Cons: the only possible con i have to this mobo is that the heat sink on the edge that has the ASUS tag on it does not seam to be very well attached. wile installing it, i accidentally bumped it several times, jarring it out of place. i dont think i ever did any permanent damage and its still wicking heat away like a champ, but it still worries me.

Other Thoughts: socket with a good life ahead of it, DDR3, 4 PCIX16 slots, decent price. this board is the way to go for those that dont like to get a new computer ever year or 2.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lots of USB and SATA ports. This board will support up to 8 monitors. Onboard heatsinks work well.

Cons: IDE controller not handled by the BIOS. Only SATA handled by the BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: able to use pentium D, auto matically accepted the corsair DDR3 1333 (slowed down to 800, due to FSB), orientation works well with ATI HD 3870, let me use an after market cpu cooler ( tight fit but allows the fan to cool the other parts as well.

Cons: only 1 ide on mobo, I had all ide drives up till now so i had to go buy a new drive so i could make one ide work.

Other Thoughts: Everything fit and worked great so far, no issues.

3 out of 5 eggsnice board, marvell gigabit is useless

Pros: Excellent state of the art board. No SLI - it's an ATI crossfire board, but one card is enough for me. If not for the ridiculous problem with the LAN ports I'd give it a 5.

Cons: The dual marvell gigabit ports seemed like a win, but they stop working and you have to reboot. It's like the DNS stops working, because existing connections will continue to work. There were some other reviews commenting on this problem here on newegg but I can't find them any more. Not sure what that's about. Marvell has no clue and Asus support has been useless. Updatd drivers, turned off sleep mode, on and on but nothing works. I bough a linksys gigabit PCI card and that fixed the problem, but at $200, you'd think they could make their LAN ports work. Really irritating.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid board

Pros: Admittedly I've only had this fella for a couple weeks now, but it looks to be an excellent board and I wouldn't trade it for another. The heatsinks all seem to be effective in their duties, and no fan is always nice. The eSATA is wonderful for external drives, and the SATA orientation is handy for working around large PCI-E cards and clean cabling for airflow. I'm not much for OC'ing, but an E8400 and 2GB of Kingston DDR3 1333 were recognized and run beautifully on the v0504 BIOS, updated with a flash drive since file was oddly larger than floppy capacity (2+ MB). Also, I'm not sure why it was mentioned that the floppy location is poor, because it's in the upper RHS where it's handy (especially for cases with bottom mounted PSU's). The cabling is actually quite nice as long as you're willing to take the time to optimize looks/airflow (which you should always do anyway, IMO).

Cons: Not SLI, but that doesn't affect me since I've always been a single card kinda guy. CrossFire for those that choose the ATI path. I suppose it is also notable that you may have issues flashing BIOS with floppy since the 0504 version I found was more than 1.44MB. The most annoying part for me has been a petty issue of the HD Audio port being in the far bottom left. Not the greatest when your front audio port is in the far upper right relative to the mobo, but that just means I have a cable running across it. One cable, no biggie.

Ice cream not included.

Other Thoughts: As fun as it may be for people to give us the model details on the $2-10k worth of stuff they have around their mobo, please keep on topic when you write a review. Also, condemning a whole company for one or two bad experiences with tech support is pretty shortsighted. ASUS has a great rep and has made great mobos for years, as have other companies.

I <3 this board and everything I put on it. I use it for gaming (UT3, WoW, Oblivion, Minesweeper ;-) ), statistics software, Mathematica, word processing, music, movies.. it just plain gets the job done well. It tackles Vista Home Premium, Office 2007, UT3 maxed @ 1680x1050 (under an 8800GT), Thunderbird, and Firefox without a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsto the guy w/ BIOS problems...

Pros: I had the same problem as I am sure everyone does. Now that you are where you are, go ahead and download the latest BIOS, even if it's a beta, and install it using the utility provided. That's what I did and I'm running 100%.

Cons: To everyone else, unless you have problems, feel free to download the latest BIOS but don't install it unless you are trying to cure a problem. You might end up having to roll back and update a few times to get it right. Yes, there most likely is some sort of bug, so again, avoid this problem if all is working well.

Other Thoughts: Even with the above mentioned BIOS updating challenge, I highly recommend this board to anyone wanting to build a 100% rock solid dependable screaming system.

I used a case that comes with twin 240mm (cm? not sure but they're 240 huge fans) fans and I run a steady 40c with no other cooling of any kind.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice

Pros: seems to have all the connections that I was looking for. Running a Core2Duo 3.0Ghz with 4GB Corsair RAM without any issues.

Cons: none found.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get the DDR3 RAM with this board. It is a requirement.

1 out of 5 eggsAdaquate board but Support sucks

Pros: Great connections, Intel Matrix RAID, good Quad-core support

Cons: Latest BIOS update corrupted system, constantly reboots, CMOS cannot be cleared. Tech support took 1/2 hr to answer phone, then disconnected me. Another 1/2 hr got 2 min with tech, another 15 min wait and an RMA. They want 10 days after receipt to repair and return. Asus promised details on shipping and Advance return, but they never sent info. I'm buying a board from someone else.

Other Thoughts: what good is a three year warranty if they do everything they can to dissuade people from using it.

Buy else where and avoid being cheated.
