5 out of 5 eggsm5A78L

Pros: Supports FX! Works exactly as advertised and then much more.

Cons: I research things before I buy them, so over all. No cons, but I suppose it would of been nice if it had more than 4 USB ports on the I/O, but then again you're buying a basic board.

Other Thoughts: Board is PERFECT! I never cared for the fancy board being that if I want anything EPIC, I just use "EPIC" add on hardware. Perfect board for a 4.4 GHZ FX4300, 8 GB Ripjaw at 7-7-7-21, stable at 1620 MHZ with 2 1 TB (Steam/Movies) and 1 160 GB (Windows) WD Hard Drives and a 7850. It won't set records, but it was affordable and allowed to spend money on more import features.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful brand.

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: First mobo was dead on arrival, second one came with a bad RAM slot. ASUS is an awful brand, as I've had other technical issues with their products before. This will be the last product I purchase from them. Not even worth paying shipping to get a refund, since I already payed the shipping to get an RMA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that you had issues with the motherboard and had to return it.
Hopefully in the future you give another ASUS motherboard a chance. ASUS manufacturers high quality boards, and in most cases, work without fault. Should you have any questions about ASUS or our products, please let me know, and I will be happy to help. Your reference number for this case is 3145977.
