Summary: I used this motherboard for additional work computers' build. Put it into a small tower case ( CoolMaster N200 ) with a 650 watt Power Supply from Corsair (more power than I need, I know, but can be reused for future builds). I've built over 20 computers.
Summary: I have owned several Asus motherboards over the past several years. Most have been for AMD processors. This one like all the previous ones has proven to be reliable. I'm not a gamer so I haven't tried tweaking it or any of the more esoteric features. I run it just like it comes out of the box.
Summary: No cons about the except just one. I'm not sure if it is the board or the CPU. I installed Kingston 1866MHz memory and it would not work on 1866. I had to bring it down to 1600Mhz. Besides the windows experience for memory performance was only 5.9 and I expected >7.0.
Summary: Buying a new motherboard is always difficult. Finding the best motherboard possible involves considering many factors. Price, Performance, Quality, Purpose, Features are important. There are trade offs that need to be made. Specifications have to be met.
Summary: Viel kann ich nicht dazu sagen ausser dass es bei mir nach genau 20 Monaten von heute auf morgen einfach nicht mehr anging! Kein Ton, kein Beep-Signal, kein Videosignal kein gar nichts. Nur die Lüfter drehten sich wie immer.
