1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: The price was real nice and i think that's what drew me to it along with free shipping cause i have a micro atx only case and this was the only one i could find with 4 ram slots that was mirco atx

Cons: I installed this board in as soon as i got it with the FX-8320 Eight-Core and i hooked it up and put it in my case and the green light on the motherboard lit up so i put the case side back on and plugged back in my psu and it wouldn't start.

I tried many many things to try and fix it and even came back here to read the bad reviews on how it wouldn't start and remove the jumper and put it back in .....ect and nothing worked, so i took it all apart and put it on a wood table and thought it was my ram so i removed all 4 sticks and tried one at a time in different slots and nothing worked so i tried other ram i had and nothing.

I also tried other Atx power supplies in this mobo and nothing, now i gotta take out my newly bought CPU and return this mobo and get my money back and get the ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS and a new case here on newegg.

i'm really disappointed that this didn't work out of the box for me as i am a 3d artist and animator and needed something that would be cheap and work with this 8 core i had and it didn't work and i need a computer to do my work.

Plus i really hate installing after market thermal paste as it is the only thing i feel i'll ever screw up on building my pc's so that is why i only use the cpu cooler that comes with the CPU, so this is gonna be a pain for me to take off clean and buy thermalpaste and then reapply it. So thank you ASUS for screwing up this motherboard.

Other Thoughts: So what else can i say about this well don't buy this without reading the bad reviews there seems to be way to many people saying it's DOA and they are very true,i love asus stuff my harddrives,blu ray drive and video card are all asus so is my monitors but when it came to this i was really really disappointed so i'm glad i found this out while i was still in the 30 day window for return.

O and never ever buy something that is for this low of price without first reading the 1 egg reviews there is way to many on this board not to be skeptical about it.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS M5A78-M/USB3 AM3+

Pros: Great motherboard, It ran very well the first time i turned it on, with installed 16 gigs of kingston 1600 hyperX genises ram. / AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-core 3.5GHZz (4.1GHz Turbo) processor. / 500 GB hard drive. Was able to load windows,drivers,anti-virus all without any problems I.Love this board.

Cons: None so for.

4 out of 5 eggsGood budget motherboard

Pros: Worked with my AMD FX-8320 out of the box, supported G.SKILL Ripjaws (2 X 4GB). Upgrade went seamless - except the DVI and HDMI didn't work for a dual monitor solution on the motherboard. I had an older GPU that was easy to insert.

Cons: The onboard graphics didn't support dual-monitors.

Other Thoughts: Good budget board for a micro-ATX installation.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus M5A78L-M

Pros: It fit very snug into my case which is an old case but it was all installed very well and there were no problems installing it!

Cons: only small problem which is fixable is when you install the motherboard , and start up your PC at first it was a bit glitchy in the sense that it was an outdated motherboard but with the Cd that comes with it. after installing all the new software for it, runs like a jet :]

1 out of 5 eggsStay AWAY!! Unless you have no other option

Pros: I actually lit up the lights on my computer case and looked all pretty.

Cons: Cannot comment about all of my troubles with this cause it goes against the guidelines. Just, STAY away from this board. Defects and possibly compatibility issues. Do your research or you will get the shaft on this one. I wish I could post my experience, but then New egg will probably not accept my review and I want to warn you all. I am extremely dissatisfied and feel like I was short changed on this deal.

Other Thoughts: Did research on this board. Read of others that had the same issue as I have, ALMOST EXACTLY, and had to go with another motherboard altogether to fix the issue. Kind of expected better from parties involved. If my review does not scream, STAY AWAY! I have failed. Wish you all luck. I imagine more than one person here have had similar experiences with this board

2 out of 5 eggsWould give 3-4 star rating if it worked.

Pros: The mATX size is nice and will fit in pretty much any case with ample space. The onboard graphics are good; I was able to run 2 monitors from the board without problems before I installed my graphics card. The user manual that came with the board was fairly comprehensive, which was nice for a relatively inexperienced builder.

Cons: Despite USB3.0 being a selling point on this board, it didn't have USB3 headers for the front panel, and gave me BIOS errors when I had more than one USB2 header connected. The temperature monitors on the board didn't work, as they all gave me consistent readings well over 200 F. There was no IDE connection on this board, which is pretty standard nowadays, but still was mildly inconvenient for me trying to reuse an old DVD drive. The 20+4 pin PSU connector was very frustrating to work with, requiring a lot of force to connect and giving groaning noises throughout.

Other Thoughts: Got this to work with an AMD FX8320, Corsair CX750M, Crucial Ballistix Sport, & a Sapphire r9 270x. First one of these I got was DOA & wouldn't POST. Returned & replaced it with another one of the same board. Second one worked just fine for about 2 weeks then suddenly wouldn't boot or POST despite having an active LED. Ended up exchanging it for an MSI 970 G43 in hopes that that'll work better.
