Summary: It's part of the best computer I've ever owned. I mounted an AMD A10 processor on it with 16 gigs of ram and I have room for 16 gigs more. Got an aftermarket Noctua processor to keep it properly cool and *silent*. I have stress tested it with prime 95 and the noctua fan at 1500 rpm and it stay out of the thermal danger zone and works. I used my first one for a computer built from the ground up.
Summary: I am not an experienced builder by any stretch of the imagination. This motherboard, coupled with the AMD A10 CPU and 8GB PC 15000 RAM screams with Windows 8.1. I am very glad I purchased this!
Summary: This motherboard works great in my Media Computer using an OS of Windows 7 Ultimate and 8 GIG's of RAM. This computer is used only for converting auto books to MP3 files using Creator NXT (2013) .
Summary: i purchased this MB for my AMD A10-5800K APU. Came on time i great condition. I have been using it everyday since its purchase. No complaints. Make sure you buy an APU socket processor. and make sure you buy thermal interface material for the processor. This motherboard comes with fan control software for ideal cooling and sound control. If your computer case comes with fan speed controls, you may have to connect the fans to the case, or the motherboard depending on you.
Summary: This motherboard is a good representation of how far the packaging and presentation has come over the years. I'm not speaking of anything aesthetic, though it's all quite pretty. The installation and configuration was so easy, I had my wife put it together herself with just a little guidance from me to help avoid expensive mistakes I've made over the years. I won't list all the good points - if you're considering Asus, you know what sets their stuff apart.
Summary: I've always wanted to learn how to build a computer. Originally I had planned on doing a super low budget build. I did a lot of research and decided on this motherboard for various reasons. I wanted a high quality, affordable board that I could make changes to over time. Reading reviews of other cheaper boards, I didn't want to risk having a board fail after I had installed Windows 7 then need to not only replace the board but the OS as well.
