2 out of 5 eggswas once a good board...

Pros: Was using this board in quite a few builds for customer sites. Worked wonderfully for the price, however....

Cons: In the last several months, I've been getting and aweful failure rate (I think it'd be generous to say 50%). Last straw was today when I used a brand new one to replace a failed one and it would not get passed the BIOS splash screen. Tired of wasting time and money, so I'm going to try a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent inexpensive board

Pros: Reasonable price, seems to be solid. Good built-in features, along with the ability to use most of Intel's 1155 CPU's.

Cons: Only 2 RAM slots (but that is common with lower cost boards and I knew when purchasing).

Other Thoughts: I needed an inexpensive main board for my 14 year old daughter. Her old XP box was running an AMD 3000+ and had performed very well for years. I purchased a Pentium G2030 and two 4GB Ram modules with this board. I installed Win 7 Pro. It makes a good basic PC for internet and homework purposes. Her Sims 3 game seems to work just fine on it, far better than the old PC. I like that I could simply drop an i3 or i5 CPU in it at a future time if more performance is needed.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus quality

Pros: -UEFI bios are awesome, as expected from asus
-Very stable
-$63, seriously..thats very cheap

Cons: -no overclocking on h61 chipset

Other Thoughts: I've heard about compatibility issues when selecting memory for this board. I have 2x4gb of corsair vengence that works perfectly if anyone is concerned about this issue. Processor is also an i3 3240.

5 out of 5 eggsnice rev 2 board

Pros: Awesome board. Has a lot of features in a small form factor. It's an established board, so it's dialed in!

UEFI can be mouse driven, but keyboard navigation is faster. It has an AHCI hot swap SATA section for those that like to eject your hard drives.

Price point for value is unreal.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Board runs Linux and FreeBSD flawlessly. This would make a great FreeNAS server.

Paired it with a Pentium G2030. Nice!

This would be a great first PC due to price or an office machine that could employ encryption with the use of an i3 CPU and TPM module. VPN also. This board has too many applications to count.

Pros: This is a good board and does what it should do at its price point, but it has problems with stability if you don't use the proper memory. Otherwise, the board handled well.

Cons: I tried the board with two types of G SKILL memory, and had serious issues. The G SKILL ripsaws were better than the G SKILL modules without a heat spreader, but I still had intermittent crashes. The G SKILL memory without the heat spreader was very very unstable.

Corsair memory seemed to work really well. To be fair they have a memory QVL, and I suggest you use it. This board appears to not be very stable with some of the more popular G SKILL modules, and possibly other brands as well.

I verified this with multiple boards, as I rolled out a few of these.

Memory tested, and failed:

stay away from using those in combination with this board!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard!!!

Pros: Greatly labeled ports, ports for pretty much everything you'd ever need besides USB 3.0, and GREAT BIOS editor.

Cons: No USB 3.0 support.

Other Thoughts: I built a high end gaming PC, and ASUS was the first manufacturer I went to to get a motherboard, they make AWESOME products.!

5 out of 5 eggsgood small factor card

Pros: Its a small factor stable board with built-in support for intel CPU based video processor HD4600.

Cons: none (unless this board will break within the next few years)

Other Thoughts: I built a budget PC for my son for his homework (and maybe occasional game) The micro ATX factor allows this board to fit into a small case, such the a computer doesn't take space like a centerpiece in the bedroom. The board, and the build in general has so far proven be a reliable setup under Windows 7. I have put I5 CPU on it with HD4600 graphics and 8GB ram. Video performance is descent enough to play games like World of Tanks on the medium resolution, which I find pretty good for a Intel Graphics.

1 out of 5 eggscant get it to work properly...

Pros: it has all the things i want/need for a simple build

Cons: will not boot up, keeps cycling through the first phase of boot. gives me a beep, then resets, beep, reset, beep, reset, etc, etc...

i installed windows 7, it loads my desktop for the first time, then decides it wants to shut down after about 5 seconds. after shut down it restarts by its self then begins the eternal loop of beep and reset. aside from the initial installation of windows i can never make it inside the OS at all. i have traded out the RAM to one that is listed as compatible by the user manuel. tried a different power supply. swapped out hard drives. unplugged all unnecessary components, but nothing works.

Other Thoughts: the build is as follows.

- ASUS P8H61-M LE/CSM R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61
- i3-3225 Dual-Core Processor 3.3 GHz
- WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard
- Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt ATX/EPS
- G.skill 4gb F3-10666CL8D-4GBHK
- win7 64
