What's not to love? 6x SATA 6gb/s ports, 4x RAM slots, nice PCB, great value
3 May 2015
Summary: I was looking for a specific board that had 6x SATA 6gb/s ports, and 4 RAM slots. This board fit the bill. I was weary though looking at reviews on newegg. Apparently this board had BIOS issues for a little while. I can't say that I've seen any of the issues they're seen.
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 complaint is that their install disk contained unnecessary bloat.
Summary: For the money, this was a good purchase. All in all really good board with good features and ASUS reliability. Everything was also very high quality, only down side is that it can't overclock but for many it doesn't apply.
Pros: Easy to use, features, price, reliability, stability
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...
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.
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.
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.
Summary: When building my PC I wanted to make sure it was future proof. So I was looking at an matx crossfire capable board. With either lga 1155 or 1150. I also wanted a small, light, pc. Not something that is very awkward to carry. Almost like a lan case. So it had to be matx.
Pros: it's matx, crossfire, lga 1150 for a decent price. From a great high quality brand.
Cons: I do have a few beefs with this mobo:, The yellow plastic bits, it's kind of a gross color. I think they should have just painted them black, or white., It could use more chassis fan plugs. Like 3 more. I can just plug xtra fans into the psu though.
