So far so good.

  • Pros: Always had good luck with Asus boards so I picked this up to replace a P5n-D. Install was easy and posted on first boot. Board is running an i5-4690K. Has many features you would find on more expensive boards for $60. Great value overall.
  • Cons: None so far.

  • Summary: It's pretty small and compact, which could be a con but it fits fine in my case. The board thankfully works even though it's just an open box. Came with the DVD and everything you'd expect. Nothing was broken but your mileage may vary. Overall a satisfactory purchase in my book.
  • Pros: Good Condition
  • Cons: Small (could be a pro)

  • Summary: Specs for the system I’m sitting at while writing this review are: Intel i3-4360 8GB (2 x 4) Team Zeus 1600 Mhz Asus B85M-G R2.0 240GB OCZ Arc 100 SSD ITB WD Black 550W Antec TruePower Classic 80 Plus Gold Modular GeForce GTX 750 1GB GDDR5 Corsair Spec-02 Case The others are G3258 (2), i3-4150,...
  • Pros: Disclaimer: I rarely overclock and didn’t try with any of the 8 systems I built using this board even though there are some tweak options in the bios. If you are an enthusiast you’d probably be looking at boards that cost more than $60. This one has 4-pin CPU power connector and only one PCI Exp ...
  • Cons: none (I will never list a con for something that is made clear in the description/secs)

Good mobo

  • Summary: The only reason I'm rating down from five stars is because I had a few issues when I first started. However, once I got past them, this motherboard worked nicely with my GTX 970 from EVGA

  • Summary: Works well. Cut my finger on the sharp I/O Shield. Does not seem to wake-up using the PS/2 keyboard. Does not work with registered DDR3. Does not have ECC support. USB 3.0 ports do not work until Windows boots up.

  • Summary: This item came as a part of a package for a gaming pc. My 17-year-old son bought this system and it arrived quickly and boxed nicely. He was able to put this together with the help of youtube in under a day.

Junk

  • Summary: Save your money and time, and get a different brand altogether.
  • Pros: There are no pros. None at all.
  • Cons: Bought two of these boards and installed them on a couple of work stations for a customer. Within a week, both boards died and had to RMA them. Will not purchase ASUS again.

50/50.. wouldn't buy this one again.

  • Summary: This is the first time I've purchased off newegg without checking the reviews and buying 4egg+ items. I bought this as part of a bundle, and am now wishing I'd just made my own as I've done in the past. Never had a problem with ASUS before. Newegg seems to be treating me right with RMA.
  • Pros: Plenty of specs and features, reasonable price.
  • Cons: Dead on Arrival. Got power to the switch but it didn't boot past this. In looking around after experiencing the issue, I found that this is common on this board. Where is quality control department?

it works fine in my rig

  • Summary: Works well but sometimes won't POST for some weird reasons concerning the CPU fan when there's actually nothing wrong with the fan and cooler. Other than that, it works fine in my rig.
