5 out of 5 eggsHecka good

5 out of 5 eggsSweet board!

Pros: Awesome BIOS. Very easy to navigate. Easy to OC your CPU using the provided software. Allows for fast boot times and has PCI-E 3.0!

Cons: Doesn't seem to allow case fans to run at full bore, if installed to the board. Easily fixed if you have a separate fan controller like many cases come equipped with.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS Service

Pros: Nice motherboard, can't wait to try it out!

Cons: ASUS customer service is terrible.

Other Thoughts: Really hard to contact ASUS. I can't even get a case number, tried numerous times. Keeps saying lost connection! Tried other avenues with no luck. I just need a question answered but the hoops you have to go through to just fail is terrible!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: I use my computer for work, school, and gaming.

- ASUS has a simple BIOS, making overclocking easy
+ Performed a simple overclock fairly simple
+ Adjusted RAM setting very easily for performance
- Manual is simple to read and understand
- Price is very reasonable, purchased at 129.99 (had a tight budget)
- Has many ports for devices are drivers, I have used all 6
- Have not experienced any power/boot issues
- Received motherboard well packaged and on time with not delay

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: Not a con:
- The location of the CPU fan socket is located very close to the CPU. It was difficult to install after installing a Cool Master 212evo

- There is a number display that shows the temperature of the board. However, it always reads "AA" .

1 out of 5 eggsCheck the BIOS version - "P5" error

Pros: MB has some very cool features and appears to meet ASUS usual quality standards. Onboard LED readouts should prove very useful.

Cons: BIOS problem with AMD Athlon 3.7K processor (error code P5 - undefined) prevented being able to use this MB-- taking almost a month before tech support indicated that the BIOS ver loaded wouldn't support processor correctly. We went thru two power supplies, two MBs, two sets of DDRAM, and two processors
No way to flash without returning to ASUS.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to NewEgg Tech Support - better to find out later than never.

Very helpful in RMA and shipping new MB.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware and Be Warned

Pros: DOA.
Purchased for Build 35, But made the common mistake and did not check the board (within 30 days of delivery). put build together 35 days after purchase. Outside of Newegg return policy. So of course Newegg will offer No assistance to help resolve issue.

Cons: DOA like a lot of other reviews on this Board, Board will Not Post and Q-Codes are registering on board, when Codes are looked up, they are unidentified codes with no known cause "Reserved for Future codes".

Asus Support is HORRIBLE. 1+ hour on hold and no answer. No call back on thier automated Message line. it appears Asus has made every effort to make it impossible to contact them for support, especially if you are trying to get an RMA issued for one of their defective products.

I would Highly recommend looking at another MFG Before purchasing this board from Asus. one that has good standing in Customer support.

Other Thoughts: Be forewarned,
Read Reviews, Several other customer complaints on this board Not Posting and non-functional.

Asus customer support is HORRIBLE...

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've had this motherboard for about 3 months now, it works incredibly.

Fast returns also with this piece.

Cons: When I first received it, it was shot. So I had to return it, I got it back fast, within 3 days actually.

5 out of 5 eggsUneventful Installation

Pros: Easy assembly and setup , no nasty surprises. Silky smooth general purpose operation with A10 5800K APU, GSkill RAM and 64 bit Win7 Pro.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This combo is not among the quickest nor well suited for serious gaming. but quite likely overkill for most workstation applications. I would definitely buy it again...

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a motherboard!

Pros: - Does what it says it does.
- Is a motherboard.

Cons: - Does not make me coffee in the morning

Other Thoughts: Not a lot to say, really. I've yet to have a bad experience with an ASUS motherboard, and this one's been great so far. I like having eSATA on the back connectors, but of course that's one reason I chose this one in the first place, so "having the features it advertised" is hardly noteworthy.

Anyway, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants out of a mainboard what this one provides.
