Summary: I used this board to build an HTPC with an Intel i3-4130T chip and I'm reasonably happy with it. It seems like a solid board and everything worked the first time through. My only complaints are that ASUS does not include SATA data cables with their product (unlike Gigabyte) and their install disk contained unnecessary bloat. I was disappointed that clicking on the "Install All Drivers" button would put apps like Norton Antivirus on my computer.
Summary: I built my last 3 systems with Gigabyte boards, and switching back to Asus was the smartest thing I've done computer-wise in years. The board is well laid out, with the exception of the two SATA connectors that are now hidden behind my graphics card, but that's a minor issue since it does provide six 6Gb connectors, all running from the H87 chipset, no separate controller for any of them.
Summary: This board ticked all of the right boxes I needed for a simple workstation setup. It has all of the essentials without adding tons of power user features that the vast majority of people will not use. Plus its an Asus, they are a leader in this segment for a reason.
Summary: I had to RMA this board once, but otherwise it's been a great choice. I've been replacing all of my office's old PCs (multiple brands bought over the years) with custom-built PCs that I hope will last the next 5 years with outstanding performance. This motherboard has so far performed superbly. I give it four stars instead of five because of the rear panel, which I've had to manually bend every time to make sure the motherboard fits into the case correctly.
Summary: This MB works with my 4th gen Haswell CPU, but it was hard to get it to work. Pros - eventually, I got it to work - the build quality seems good so far, it has worked for one day Cons - would not boot windows 7 from existing SSD, got a BSD error that quickly disappeared so you could not read the details - documentation is horrible, chinglish instructions on how it works, nothing on what to do if it does not work, except change all the other components - I was forced to...
Summary: This motherboard works as advertised. I have had one problem for which I'm removing a star. For some reason, somewhere between 25% and 50% of my boots give me a bios error telling me that my boot drive is not completely supported and to check compatibility mode in the BIOS. Compatibility mode is fine and I tried another disk (both were SSDs). I contacted ASUS and they want me to try booting under Windows (I'm using Linux).
Summary: I recently needed to rebuild my aging HTPC, and this unit worked perfectly. It fits with plenty of room in my nMediaPC housing, has plenty of outputs (including on-board HDMI, which my old unit did not), and has been running flawlessly since I purchased it.
Summary: I selected this motherboard for a new build because it had the features I needed and the Asus reputation for quality. Instructions were adequate and clear, installation proceeded without problem, and system started up on first boot without any issues. PC is now in daily use and continues to perform flawlessly.
Summary: Pros: No problems with it. Good features at a good price point. Stable, no blue screens yet. Cons: The 'AI suite' software does not appear to be stable. Other: make sure you update your firmware.
