Summary: After one of my desktops died, I decided to go with this one. I have used and trusted Asus motherboards my whole life and have never had any major issues with them. This board is no exception. It was easy to install, has USB 3.0, and has worked flawlessly since I installed it. Would highly recommend it.
Summary: Overall, a very good board and very useful Asus utilities. Only flaw is the positioning of the Sata ports, at the lower front of the board facing out, not up. If one would have a true micro tower/case, it would be nearly impossible to connect cables without removing the board. Bad enough in a mid size case.
Summary: Asus make great boards. I only use Asus when building client PCs. One problem I did have was being able to fit a fan in the very top of the Cooler Master case. The PS/2 port is in the way and if you have a fan in the second hole over the Ram sticks are in the way.. So perhaps this is the fault of the Case manufacture I'm not sure.
Summary: I had a rather old desktop (started life as Win XP) that I built years ago, and I was getting rather annoying with it's very slow performance. It was time for an upgrade! My solution was to get a new mother board, new processor and 8 Gig of memory. So I got the following from Amazon.com.
Summary: Really well laid out, easy to install motherboard for AMD Trinity APU's. I used a A10-5800K in it, with 16 gigs of ram (2 8 gig sticks). Its super fast, the bios is nice it starts into a gui, where it recognizes your usb mouse. I plugged in a SSD in it, it got recognized right away. I'm happy that the graphics are fast, and will run most graphics intensive application out of the box.
