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.
Pros: I Like This Motherboard, I Being Able To Adjust My Overclocking From My Desktop Without Having To Go Into The Bios, The Auto Tune Is Nice, And It Also Allows For Cooling Fan Adjustments From The Desk Top As Well, Again The Auto Tune Is Nice! I Am Running The AMD 6800k FM2 Socket Quad Core 100W And I Have Not Had Any Issues This Far!
Summary: As a future technician currently in college, I had to start somewhere in the computer world. So I decided to start building a PC with lots of time and research for what I want. Actually this would be my 2nd PC Build. Asus, this company I only dealt with is for the tablet I recently purchase and by far the Asus brand tablet has not let me down. So now I will try the out their motherboard.
Summary: I bought this mobo as a package with an AMD A10-6800 processor and the combination is really potent. This ASUS mobo has all the latest features and performs flawlessly. I particularly like the huge number of USB ports and the easy-to-use Bios interface.
