Lasted for so many years!

Pros: Asus continues to support there premium boards for years! Caped at AM3, Phenom II 1100T, Last board to have built in Wi-Fi with AMD CPU!?

Cons: 8Gb DDR2 @ 1066, with they could have at least supported up to 16Gb of DDR2.

Other Thoughts: This board has seen CPUs hit 70 *C and keeps on ticking. Installed a Phenom II 1100T which only needed a Bios update to support it. Next upgrade will be a R9 390 or 390X and possibly CrossFire and that will be it for this build. I know it will create a bottleneck but will allow me to save up for the next board and CPU and transfer them over to that.

Wish Asus would release a Premium AMD board that has built-in Wi-Fi!

Still an Above Average board

Pros: This is an incredibly diversified motherboard that has pretty impressive potential despite being designed only for the AM2+ socket. The integrated WiFi, while not fast enough for gaming compared to today's standards, is still formidable enough to stream video and browse online without any noticeable lag in response time or buffering. The stock copper heat sink for the processor and RAM is pretty nice and supports impressive overclocking.

A big pro that has made this board viable again is that ASUS recently allowed backwards compatibility with AM3 chips, so a whole other generation of processors is available with the right BIOS update.

Cons: Limited to 8GB of slow DDR2 RAM, which has ultimately sealed the death warrant on this board for gaming in the next couple of years. The unique copper heat sink tech for the RAM only really works for 2 out of the 3 sticks, making it virtually useless with todays 8GB minimum standards. No USB 3.0 potential here either, another sign of an aging bit of tech.

Other Thoughts: This was truly a beastly motherboard in it's day, and with the right overclocking even now has above-average potential compared to the stock motherboards on premade PC's today. It might not be a competitive board to have in your tower, but if you're building a retro gaming PC or want a solid computer for file storage and office applications, the integrated WiFi is perfect for the job. A self-proven workhorse indeed.

One of the best investments I ever made

Pros: Motherboard migrated several platforms, going through 4 different cpu upgrades, ending up with a Phenom II x6 1075T and a Radeon 6870. Asus and AMD both released updated drivers and bios to support the new hardware despite me still running Windows XP x64 at the time. I finally gifted this motherboard to another member of my family when finding out upgrading my pc to 16gb of ddr2 would have been more expensive than buying an openbox sabretooth 990fx and 16gb of ddrt3, and it is still running fine and stable to this day. Great motherboard ASUS!

Cons: Ram heatsinks seemed to cook the ram more than it cooled it, I had to set the timings on my 1066 ram manually to get it to the advertised speeds and more importantly, the proper stability. Also if I recall correctly the network adapters were unstable until you downloaded the newer drivers from the marvell site.

Great Board

Pros: Built in Wifi. Strong lasting board.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I had a problem back in 09 that caused my network port to go out on the board and started using the wifi on the board. But it was a i/o issue that windows had created and I fixed. Ive had this board sense 2008 and I'm still using it.

Amazing

Pros: This motherboard is outta this world. Does what it is supposed to, WiFi has a great reception. I'm just about to try the eSATA when I get my new ext. HDD.
BIOS allows for fully configurable hardware, from manual to automatic.
Asus has done it again with a work of art. Currently running 3.2GHz, 4G RAM, 3 SATA HDD, 1 IDE DVD-RW, 2x ATI X1950XTX (PCI-X, crossfire mode), Creative Fatal1ty Extreme X-Fi with 1/4" front panel box.

Available Vista drivers.
For Linux users read below.

Cons: I haven't had any problems that didn't arise from it being wins fault.

In Linux (Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10) The wifi was detected as Atheros, but could not be used. I'm not much of a linux guy, but I do run it often trying to get the hang of it, something about loading the proper module, i've tried following tutorial and forum suggestions, but nothing worked for me. Not a big issue, since the Ethernet is there. Also, I haven't tested the eSATA under linux.

Other Thoughts: I've yet to attempt overclocking, kinda have a small cash flow problem, and as soon as I can afford a replacement (in case I screwup an overclock) i'll try it out.

Bad Board, even worse customer service from Asus

Pros: Looks Good

Cons: MB was in service for 2 months, started to get memory errors. changed out memory, still same problem. Called Asus and requested a RMA. Sent the board off and got it back with NOTHING done. Problem still exists, called ASUS again and got the run around from them. SO I have a MB that works some times and is returning back bad data to the hard drives. I will never own an ASUS board again or anything with the ASUS logo on it. It was their Customer Service that did them in. You pay good money for these products and expect them to last, I understand that items break. But to ignore a problem and give the consumer an attitude is wrong.

As always NewEgg rocks!!!

Other Thoughts: ASUS needs to get their act together

Very Disappointed

Pros: The mempipes are a nice touch, as is the built in WiFi, especially if you have high end graphics cards that would block PCI slots

Cons: Bad placement of the SATA ports makes them difficult to connect in smaller cases; even some full towers. The WiFi kind of sucks, though it's better than nothing.

Other Thoughts: My friend and I have collectively RMAed no fewer than 4 of these boards due to bad RAM slots. I finally gave up and decided to go with an MSI board and add a PCI wireless card. Not saying this is a bad board, but 4 seems like more than a coincidence to me.
