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.
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..
Pros: Very nice motherboard although it doesnt have a header for usb 3.0 but thats fine. Board lay out is good for the case i used it in and it took my 6800k without any problems. Windows 8.1 installed fine and everything. Boots very fast.
Cons: Bios is really hit or miss. Sometimes it goes to it othertimes you hit f2 and it stays on a black screen so you have to restart. Doesn't bother me since i only needed to get in 1 time to change the ram speed
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.
Pros: This is a high quality board with tons of great features. It supports the majority of RAM modules and the BIOS is pretty epic to say the least. I've found the MemOK button to be quite helpful also when testing bad memory.
Cons: The only issue I've found is the lack of Linux sound drivers. I can play sound just fine through the audio jacks, but it won't play out of the HDMI port.
Summary: Would not recommend this board for A!0 cpus even though Asus website states it will run them. It only has a 4 pin CPU power connector. You should buy a board with an 8 pin connector, if running a K series Trinity or the 65 watt A 10, to ensure enough power to the cores.
Pros: Solid, stable board for someone building a general purpose computer. Running 24/7 without hiccup since purchase. This board has all video connections in their own housing, many boards in this price range do not.
Cons: I/O backplate gave me grief, ended up bending the tangs between the VGA and DVI ports straight out in order to get the board mounted in the backplate. VGA connector flexes more than I would like.
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.
