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: 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: 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.
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 have had this motherboard in my HTPC for a few months now and I absolutely love it. It's been stable and hasn't given me any issues. I previously had the 5800K in this motherboard and I had it overclocked to 4.5Ghz with a few mouse clicks. I recently upgraded to the 6800K and this motherboard has let me overclock it to 4.8Ghz using around 1.48 volts. This board has 8 phase VRM which makes it awesome to overclock using this board.
