5 out of 5 eggsSolid Budget Mobo

Pros: Its an Asus
Its reliable
BIOS/EFI is great
Updates Easy
Doesn't bottleneck anything I have

Cons: None. Just what I've come to expect from an Asus product.

Other Thoughts: Honestly not surprised I love this product. Its an Asus product, which is mostly the reason I bought it, alongside the price tag. I've ordered around 30-35 Asus products and literally had only one be DOA and got a replacement for that in less than a week. Asus is a solid company and does customer service right. You won't be disappointed in this board or the support they bring.

2 out of 5 eggsMediocre board, deplorable service

Pros: Quite a few nice features

Cons: Won't boot with a CD in a CD-Rom drive. Poor documentation. Confusing and undocumented BIOS. Inaudible on-board speaker. ALL SATA ports failed after less than 6 months (on one of the two boards I bought). Deplorable, time-wasting, RMA service.

Other Thoughts: I was very impressed by the specifications and review of this board, but after almost a year of constant problems, this will be the last Asus board I ever purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo Value

Pros: This is my 2 nd build with this board. It is great and the Efui bios is extensive, but can be automatic if needed. Can easy overclock.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There is no need for a more expensive board. This board has it all more almost any one's build.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent MoBo

Pros: BIOS works well
Everything fit in case properly
Nice looking

Cons: Didnt fit in my Corsair Carbide 200R case properly, screw holes were off

I/O board doesnt fit on the motherboard and had to be messed with for the mobo to actually stay in the case

Other Thoughts: dont bother with this case, around 70% of people get a defected i/o shield

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival for the second time in a row.

Pros: None - Dead on arrival.

Cons: First motherboard was D.O.A. Had to pay for the shipping to send it back to receive a replacement. Second was D.O.A. and shorted out my processor.

Other Thoughts: Shipping package was beat up and some air bags internally were popped.

1 out of 5 eggsYeah dont do it

Pros: Nice board with all the bells

Cons: Yeah the ethernet port is dying less then 6 months later

Other Thoughts: I tried asus before and had good luck but seems the ethernet ports always die on em.... would give 0 eggs if possible, I had the same problem 6 years ago and took me this long to buy another one to give em a second chance. well you lost a customer asus.

2 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard but cant trust it

Pros: Works. usb 3 support.multiple ports overall great

Cons: Seems to have issues with USB and freezing. when plugging in a USB 2 or 3 device of any kind it occasionally freezes the whole computer forcing me to reboot. it also freezes randomly for nothing which is very annoying. tried everything and have to blame it on the motherboard. gonna probably RMA

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Budget Board

Pros: I've had a few issues with this board, but they were easily rectified if you have computer knowledge. I would recommend this board for tech enthusiasts and the like, not beginners. The bios backup setting is nice, since you can flash back incase of a bad bios version. Keep in mind, this is a budget board. In the I.T. word, you get what you pay for.... Not to say that this is subpar, just not as impressive as a $200-300 board.

Cons: I took an egg off due to instability in the beginning weeks of breadboarding and testing. Also, I would recommend Also using the AI SUITE auto-tune feature. It is very unstable.
