Pros: Well, I bought this board ages ago.. I think it's almost been 4 years.. idk for sure.. but I was fortunate enough to get an open box model from Newegg in which they used in the review video on YouTube. So way back when, I ran it with the Phenom II X4 965 BE and overclocked immediately... was phen...
Cons: RAID just does not work... apparently it's a very common issues... very temperamental... some days it works and some it don't... but I love the board... I honestly want to keep it but it's dying... my gigabyte board has lasted way longer so far... it's in my uncle's pc... at least they still upda...
Summary: Hi Wesley F. I liked your review. The first two I got were DOA. After about 6 months I decided to try again and got one that booted without problems, but yes, they are slow. So, this is the last of the Mohikans? BTW, I thought that saying was $its on a boar hog.
Pros: Looks good. Runs good if you are lucky to get a good one.
Summary: While looking through my event viewer, I noticed there were errors pertaining to asmedia drivers. I entered the BIOS in hopes that toggling the asmedia options would solve my issue, but to no avail.
Pros: This motherboard packs tons of features and it generally laid out well. The construction is sound and the board is aesthetically pleasing also.

Summary: I won't offer any new insights here. My issue...the board is getting older and stale in looks and technology. On the tech side its solid and that's good but old age has set in and its showing. Asus please update, look what can be offered and move. Work with AMD and revitalize.
Pros: I've built 8 systems with this board (I'm a system assembler) and all have worked well. Many other reviewers can go on and on...so read them.

Pros: For the price this is a great board.
Cons: I had this board for almost a week before one of the PCIe slots stopped working. I tested a few different cards that do work and still couldn't get the board to recognize any of the cards even after a few hours on the phone with ASUS which by the way were great at helping me out.. This stuff happ...
