5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great mother board. plenty of room to expand. the asus bios is easy to understand and use.

Cons: They should have put the pcie 1x in a different place.

Other Thoughts: I put a 4.4ghz amd apu to it, its super fast. i would suggest this motherboard to anyone ready to build a very capable gaming machine.
Word of warning when matching colors if you are going to use LEDs in your case. The motherboard isnt yellow, its a flat gold, the board is a black/brown. I wish you could choose the colors to make it easier to match colors. but thats just my opinion. beggars cant me choosers.

5 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard

Pros: Easy to install and adjust the bios. More than enough connections for USB or SATA for a mid range PC

Cons: Did not detect my ram properly so I had to adjust it in the bios

doesn't have a parallel port for my old school printer (20+ year old laser that still runs better than any of my newer inkjets)

Other Thoughts: This isn't a cutting edge board, but if you are building a non-gaming focused machine, this would be a great pick up. Because it integrates with the FM2, graphics comes on the chip, you don't have to buy a graphics card unless you want to upgrade them.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: Was a breeze to set-up, updated bios right away, used recommended Ram, clocked at 2401mhz. Somehow got the dual graphics functioning with an R9 270. (Unless Catalyst is Malfunctioning.)

Cons: Board does not recognize USB 3.0, although it shows in bios and in the device manager. Plugged in the front USB 3.0 and it is labeled as an unknown device, whereas the rear onboard USB 3.0 is recognized but doesn't seem to function once you get past the bios.

Other Thoughts: The Board really didn't like my custom built HD 7990, although that might be because it was running at -13 C...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: It works like it's supposed to. No problems of any kind. Easy, intuitive BIOS.

Cons: Another fan header toward the front of the board would have been nice, but I knew how many there were before I made the purchase.

Other Thoughts: I bought this after having to RMA a similar Gigabyte board. I was going to use it with the Kaveri socket, but have decided to wait for the next update of FM2+. For now, it's being used with an a10-5800K that is overclocked to a stable 4.4GHz.
The fan control in BIOS isn't too bad. I'd rather use Speedfan, but it doesn't seem to want to play nice with this board.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I put it all together stuck 8 gigs at Kingston HyperX got an SSD boots. looks kinda naked without a video card. Running the new AMD Kaveri core

Cons: Haven't experienced anything bad yet was hoping the video on the CPU was a little bit more on the higher end but then again you can cross fire with a 250

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board!

Pros: Excellent design and a very stable board. The BIOS is well-designed and easy to work with. Documentation with the board is easily sufficient to aid the uninitiated to install this board.

Cons: For this price point, this board has no cons.

Other Thoughts: You can't do much better than this for the price!

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Change Boot order

Pros: The fans spin

Cons: Changed boot order and lost video. Reset BIOS did not do any good. Pulled CMOS battery HD clicks and fans spin. Computer is still a boat anchor.

Other Thoughts: I used to be a big ASUS board fan I have been using, and recommending them for years. This is the VERY first time I was unable to recover a system after a BIOS change.
