5 out of 5 eggsFatastic

Pros: This board has worked hard and delivered well for over 6 years (wow!) I have never had trouble posting, and only rarely get a bluescreen.

It even handled a power supply blowing out and some other modules failing over time.

Cons: Socket changes mean that you can no longer buy a new chip for this board.

Other Thoughts: It's great!

5 out of 5 eggsStill going ans still awesome!

Pros: I have been running this motherboard since February 2010 and I've never had an issue. Since I bought it I've added ram, updated BIOS, updated graphics card, installed liquid cooling and added a SSD. I have never had a complication. Runs like a top. Best lasting mobo I have ever had.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked for 5 years

Pros: Pro #1: Has worked well for five years. Pro #2: Good customer support. I have to admit that I made a mistake and did not set up the MB correctly. It did not pass the POST. I was able to contact the support, which was actually helpful and they sent me an updated BIOS chip. It did not help since the chip was not the problem, but still it was nice to talk to a person that was willing to work with me, troubleshoot problems and provide real help.

Cons: There may be a problem with the drivers that come with the MB. I had intermittent BSODs for a couple of years after I set up the PC with the drivers that came on the enclosed CD. I later did a fresh Windows install and went with the default Windows drivers. No BSODs since then. Of course other problems besides drivers are possible, but that's the only major difference I can think of between the two installations.

Other Thoughts: My setup: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor, G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL, ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series.

5 out of 5 eggs4 and a 1/2 years and still going strong.

Pros: Not a single issue to date... knock on wood. I like bigger full atx boards... there is just room to breath... I have had a phenom ii x 2 550 BE since day one, 4G g-skill DDR3 1333 both O.C'd. the BE @ 3.79 Ghz and DDR3 @1399 since day one without a hitch, hiccup, sputter or even heavy breathing.
I like where the fan connections are located on the board too.

Cons: VIA audio

Other Thoughts: After 41/2 years I'm going to upgrade... not the motherboard , just some other components.

I found a phenom ii x 6 1090T,and I'm replacing the HD4870 with a HD7870, 4 more G's of G-skill, a Seasonic 650, PCIe ESI Audiotechnik 7.1, Samsung 120GB EVO, that's the only thing I can think of that I wish I had of today's tech SATA 6Gig connections, other than that PCI 3.0 isn't a concern and I don't care about USB 3.0... I mean, who needs a usb device with that much bandwidth anyways? any peripheral worth having that much bus should be internal IMHO. USB 3.0 might be good for laptops with small SSD's that need an external for back up and storage... but , I've been down that road before and it's not fun to have to carry an extra USB connected hard drive around everywhere you go. dig it out of your bag... connect it... wait for windows to recognize it... sometimes it does... sometimes it doesn't... then where are you going to put it if you have limited space... I mean you bought a laptop for a reason, so you can be portable right... but now you've got to find a desk to put your laptop and your darnn external drives... ya, i bet USB 3.0 would be good for that.

4 out of 5 eggsGood... and Bad

Pros: Still running after 4 years. Still running original AMD Phenom II X4 945. Upgraded memory a couple years ago. And added an SSD for running W7. For the most part it has done everything ive asked it to. Im not a gamer anymore, mostly productive stuff, yet sometimes high CPU productive stuff.

Cons: Something is wrong with the montherboard SATA connectors. I spent the first two months with BSODs every day or two. Tried lots of stuff but eventually figured out that I need to reseat the SATA cables once a month. So for the last four years I get a monthly set of BSODs that I then fix by reseating the SATA cables on the motherboard. I have replaced all cables and the problem continues. Maybe cheap connectors or bad alloys that get oxidized fast on the motherboard. Ive never had another motherboard do this. I live in the desert with constant low humidity. Sucks to have to take the case apart every month.

Other Thoughts: I regret buying it, but maybe ASUS boards are better now. This board lessened my ASUS brand loyalty.

2 out of 5 eggsNB Failure

Pros: The board lasted from jan 2011 to nov 2013 with no errors running 2x4gb sticks of Gskil ram 1333mhz, AMD 965 phenom II be cpu, gtx 460, ANTEC 650watt PSU.
Luckily it was still under warranty.

Cons: Started getting random restarts after screen freezes. Looked in EventViewer and the board was reporting north bridge errors. chatted online with asus tech and told him windows was reporting NB error and all he said was fill this out for RMA and send it in. Still awaiting the return of the MOBO from asus.

Other Thoughts: Bought my wife a Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H with an i5-4440 processor to replace the asus board as it was time for an upgrade anyway.

5 out of 5 eggs3+ years and still not a problem

Pros: Everything about this board has worked perfect from day one. Guess I must be one of the lucky ones according to the reviews. I have had 3 GPU's and 2 CPU's run through this board. Started with 4Gb 1800 RAM and upgraded twice to 12Gb. Never had a RAM issue. Ran 2 2Gb sticks before adding 2 4Gb sticks all at tuned alike. No problems, all plug n' play. Started with a 4650 1Gb Radeon. Moved to a 5770R hawk 1Gb Radeon. Upgraded to dual 7770's. Started with an old school phenom 2(chip number fails me atm) and runa Phenom 2x4 955 D black. Almost 4 years if issue free gaming and fapping!

Cons: ZERO

Other Thoughts: Now that this beast of a mobo is past it's peak, I will def. be looking into Asus for the next generation of my gaming needs. Good job Asus. You have never let me down.
