ASUS M4A87T AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
  • AMD 870
  • Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100 Series
  • DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066
  • (AMD AM3 100 and 200 series CPU support up to DDR3 1066MHz.)

Pros:

+For the price, this is a great motherboard.
+Had this board for just under three months and I've had absolutely no issues with it.
+Extremely stable.
+I like the BIOS options, they're decently in-depth for the price.

Cons:

-The "auto-overclocker" in this board while it does work, it gives much more voltage to components than needed (but not anywhere near dangerous levels).
-When booting up it takes a few seconds to initialize the USB controllers. This really isn't a problem as it's only a few seconds, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
-This board has 3 PCI slots but with a larger video card there's no way you'll fit 3 cards. Again, not an issue for me but it could be for some people.
-The audio on this board really isn't spectacular, it doesn't respond well to high amplification. Get a sound card if you're really into sound.

Other Thoughts:

I would definitely buy this board again. Currently working with my Athlon II x640, AMD Black Edition RAM and an NVidia GTX460.
