This review is from: ASUS P9D-E/4L ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333
Pros: Has good ancestors

This review is from: ASUS M5A88-V EVO AM3+ AMD 880G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Easy to install, I just let the defaults and apparently everything went fine. Good windows mark (7.5 7.3)
Cons: A couple of crash under windows 7, and finally dead after 2 months.
Contacted asus support, was told to do a RMA through their site, which I did. After one month no answer, had to escalate. Received a standard answer looks like my email was'nt read... Maybe next year I'll get this working...
Other Thoughts: Asus service is inefficient at least in this case, never experienced problems before with this brand, but Iooks for me that they don’t want recognize their prolems...
