2 out of 5 eggsBIOS upgrade required for Ivy Bridge to work

Pros: * Small
* GPU Boost could've worked well.
* Works with Core i5 and i7, only when it's under 3rd Gen, unless you upgraded your BIOS.

Cons: When I plugged in everything correctly, including my Ivy Bridge CPU and pasted on the thermal paste, I turned on my computer with surprising results. The fan jerks, and the system goes in a reboot loop until it's shut off.

I thought it had to do with my RAM, but it wasn't. Neither was my Power Supply, Cables, Hard Drives, or Graphics card. I narrowed it down to the CPU.

Now, with another mobo, the same CPU works 100% with no issues. But with this board, even though it says it's supported, it does the reboot loop.

I RMA'd 3 times to upgrade the BIOS, but with no success whatsoever. It came back the same BIOS version.

I can say that after contacting ASUS support, they are very unprofessional. How can I tell? Misspellings, Not being able to handle an RMA, not saying that it's only supported after a BIOS upgrade in the manual.

I'll give ASUS another chance one day, but I'll stay away from their products until they make better ones. Not saying that this board is bad, but ASUS failed to fix the board for me.

Other Thoughts: I didn't have a Second-gen Intel i3, i5, or i7. I didn't want to spend the extra $120...

3 out of 5 eggsOnly works with Core 2nd Gen

Pros: Made by ASUS, not defective. Everything it says on the box.

Cons: I put in my Core i5-3570K and it didn't start up. I had to get a BIOS chip, but sent to ASUS to get it fixed 2 times, ended up with the same problem. Started up for 1 sec then restarted, and the same cycle. Had to get a new motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I think it would be a great board if I could actually start it up with my 3rd gen.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking 24x7 after 3 months

Pros: The total lack of difficulty installing this MB kind of freaked me out. Usually something goes wrong and needs tweaked. This install was without any difficulty. It is in use as a media center PC which is on pretty much 24x7 - Media center + ceton tuners/cable card + 8gb ram. I was not happy with intel onboard graphics which would not correctly hold settings on several key video options - bought PNY Nvidia video card instead. Happy with number of PCIe slots.

Cons: I have no cons relating to this MB itself. But for those who are considering this board for a media center build, Intel's video drivers need fixed so that settings "stick" correctly. I could not get a good bd calibration using onboard video and arcsoft total media center 5.

Other Thoughts: Really a perfect build and an interesting experiment to create a media center PC. I have nice video output from BD, HD TV, and 5.1 Dolby/DTS via optical. My experience has been a media center PC build is a constant effort at tweaking. This PC is powerful enough to be retired to a desktop if I decide to abandon Media center use which was part of the plan in the first place.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Asus motherboard.

Pros: This little motherboard by Asus is top drawer. It installs easily and feels sturdy. It runs good and is true to the Asus name.

Cons: no cons.

Other Thoughts: For me there is not need for 6 gig sata speed, since this is for internet browsing and email type stuff. The 2 ddr3 slots only is just fine for me, so i find this motherboard to be of the top class. Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsMore Troubelshooting needed.

Pros: Shiny blue! love the Asus color scheme.
Perfect for my HTPC build.

Setup:
i3 -2120
this MOBO
OCZ Vertex 2
3TB WD
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB)
APEX DM-387 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center

Cons: SAPPHIRE 100326LP Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 is giving me no VIDEO with firmly pressed in pci-e slot.

I do receive the single OK POST BOOT. ON Board video works fine.
Have troubleshot the card it self works in other machines. Therefore I either Have a P/S that is not enough or a Bad PCI-E Slot.

I have read confirmed reports that this low energy low profile card can run off a 250 Watt P/S. I Currently have a 275Watt.

Will try a spare gfx card to eliminate if its an power issue. If another card doesn't work then Bad PCI-E Slot.

Troubleshooting in depth before returning for RMA .

I believe I may have a bad/malfunction PCI-E slot.

5 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: - This motherboard has the features required for a basic HTPC - HDMI output (audio supported) and an optical S/PDIF port. I may upgrade to a discrete fanless low-profile GPU eventually, but this board combined with the Core i3 2100 I purchased at the same time seems to cope just fine with HD video.

- Came with two black SATA cables with right-angled connectors on one end. Perfect for a case with tight clearances!

- The BIOS supports the use of a mouse and the GUI isn't designed using text characters! I'm honestly surprised this feature wasn't available years ago. Why have we been using such a primitive keyboard-only BIOS interface all this time? Storage size constraints on the chip, I suppose.

Cons: - Only has two RAM slots. (see Other Thoughts)

- The CPU socket is a bit close to the RAM slots. It fits fine with a stock cooler (has about 1 cm to spare between cooler and the RAM stick), but I'd be concerned trying to fit any aftermarket cooler that has a base that's wider than stock onto this board. Since I'm using the stock cooler (which is dead silent as it is), and am not planning to overclock, this isn't an issue for me.

Other Thoughts: The lack of RAM slots isn't a huge deal, since you can still put quite a bit of RAM in two slots these days, so I wouldn't say this is really a con. Given this board isn't intended for high-performance use that would entail a large amount of high-performance RAM, I'd say two slots are just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: Good Price. Plenty of features for an average user.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Everything I plugged into it was recognized right away and working fine (so far). I have not yet tried any overclocking, nor did I install a graphics card on this board or any other peripheral that require an expansion slot.

System:
This Board
Intel i3-2100
GSkill 8GB DDR3 1333
Raidmax 530W Modular PSU
Crucial M4 64GB SSD
WD 1.5TB HD
