Rodney S., Newegg

  • Summary: I'm satisfied with this motherboard. I haven't really done much prowling in the BIOS or anything, but, it's a good workhorse mobo for a home server.

Decent Value

Brett B., Newegg
3 January 2014

  • Pros: Decent Value Functional Reasonable Appearance Okay features/software
  • Cons: Limited Overclocking Capabilities

Great Mobo

Douglas V., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Asus quality...I routinely am impressed with Asus hardware. Especially motherboards.
  • Pros: Great motherboard, easy set up...much quicker than an MSI mobo that I had set up with an A10-6800k earlier. No complaints other than the AMD apu's are really not good for much gaming (at least nothing recent).
  • Cons: None really

  • Pros: Perfect. no problems. Went together easy. The only thing that is a bit different is the bios and trying to get it to boot to the DVD drive, takes playing with all the boot options. Comes with the ASUS or the UEFI
  • Cons: NONE
