ASUS M5A97 PLUS AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: EFI Bios, 970 Mobo, ...

Works great. Used Munchkin Line Memory. Everything A+ as always with Newegg and Asus!

Cons: Doesn't have onboard usb 3.0. But given the price and the upgrade, well worth it. Better to save the $ and buy a usb 3.1 card now that the new spec is out!

Doesn't have thunderbolt. Can always dream, can't I? : )

Other Thoughts: Please delete or ignore my other two reviews (1 star and a 3 star by me). It was bad memory and unsupported memory. This memory works well. I admit I was quick to quit (busy day).

ASUS M5A97 PLUS AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Other thoughts

Cons: Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Have to correct from a previous review that this is the first mobo to need RMA from newegg. I have not had two motheboards (it was a different issue which corrected itself and did not need RMA'd - not Neweggs fault).

1 out of 5 eggs DOA - Bad Video Card Port 07/16/2015

This review is from: ASUS M5A97 PLUS AM3+ AMD 970/SB950 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Fast shipping?

Cons: Motherboard won't post due to a long beep and two short post. Tried two video cards (ASUS EN6800GT 256M backup and a 2GB 480 GT Gigabyte duel fan) which works on other motherboards. Tried PNY XLR8 1600 ram and TEAM 8GB 1833 ram. All four work in an ASUS Expert mobo. This shipped from Indiana. Looks like open box (No seals present except sata cable & face plate). Didn't advertise open box. I will be getting an RMA and requesting non-open box.

Other Thoughts: Fedex shipping. So no telling when it's at your doorstep. Fast unexpected delivery is better than extended delivery?

Open box wouldn't have been an issue. Except it didn't post due to video card port issue. This should have been thoroughly tested, since the box was opened.

Both ASUS and Newegg are awesome companies! Maybe Newegg Indiana location has problems?

2nd mobo in 6 months to be DOA. Even though you are awesome, starting to loose confidence.
