Summary: I really wanted to like this motherboard- the price is right for all the options you get. Unfortunately, I got a unit with a bad network port. After about a month, my ethernet can't connect unless I manually set the speed to 10Mbps. Even limping along like that, it'll still periodically drops out, requiring a reboot. The support process with ASUS thus far has been tedious (busy signals for my first few calls, then 30m to actually speak with a person).
Summary: Used in two systems, neither one would be used for gaming. One was with i5 Haswell and the other with a Pentium Haswell. Both computers are running 24/7. Only thing to keep in mind is the number of fan headers, this MB only has two so plan accordingly.
Summary: My experience was pretty much the same as JWink reported earlier. I installed an Intel Core i5-4670 CPU and a kit of Kingston Hyper X Blu 8 GB (2x4GB Modules) 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, an older Radeon HD 5770 graphics board, with Windows 7. The PSU is a Corsair CX Series 500 Watt 80 PLUS Bronze unit. The system (not including monitor) idles at 47W, which is great. Everything worked perfectly, as has always been the case with my Asus builds.
Summary: I bought two of these and put together two new PCs. One of these boards was bad and would not POST. I called ASUS and they said to return it . I called and I paid to have another board shipped and it worked great. They are refunding my payment for the bad board.
Works perfectly with windows 8, had some issues with windows 7

Summary: This mobo worked perfectly with windows 8. With windows 7 I got many error messages and unknown device problems. If you plan on using this with windows 8 it will work perfectly. Bios is really quite nice too, super user friendly.
