going strong since December, 2008

Lance K., Newegg
30 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought the motherboard in late November for a complete system build. I have a very efficient power supply, a low watt cpu, and excellent case air flow. I'm going to blame all these factors on the current longevity (4 years, 4 months) of this motherboard.
  • Pros: Reliable.
  • Cons: secondary heatsinked chipset on motherboard (copper heatsink... integrated gpu?) gets warm, so I glued a small 40mm fan onto it.

Still going strong!

Anonymous, Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Pros: Next month (4/13), I will have had this board running mostly 24/7 for four years! Haven't had a problem yet. It's survived three CPUs (currently running a Phenom II x6 1090T) and three graphics cards (currently running a GTX 660 ti sc). I'll probably keep it until my next processor upgrade (which...
  • Cons: None so far.

Outstanding

Louis M., Newegg
21 November 2012
  • Pros: Owned this board for over 4 years and had no glitches what-so-ever. By far the best ASUS board I have ever used so far. I have 4 others that I built computers from and this is the most stable. I can play RIFT using the on-board GPU, at the lowest resolution and a fan, with just a bit of hiccup. A...
  • Cons: Both heat sinks had to be re-greased soon after putting it to some stressing tests. I applied white instead of 'Arctic Silver' and so far has been flawless.

Board works great, but think twice about an extended warranty from ServiceNet

Richard K., Newegg
20 June 2012
  • Summary: The warranty from ASUS on this motherboard is explicitly stated on both NewEgg's site and on the motherboard's box as being a three-year limited warranty. When I bought the two-year extended replacement warranty from ServiceNet, I was under the impression that this would extend the warranty coverage...
  • Pros: Board runs great without any issues.
  • Cons: After just over three years, the motherboard failed due to an overheating problem with the computer in which it was installed (the exhaust fan in the back of the case stopped functioning and resulted in cooking the motherboard. I purchased a 2-year extended warranty from ServiceNet which turned o...

Excellent Motherboard!

Richard K., Newegg
29 May 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this board to replace a defective XFX motherboard that had similar features. When I installed the motherboard and turned on the computer, it allowed me to boot up into Windows XP, and update the chipset drivers in order to account for the minor chipset differences between this board and...
  • Pros: E-SATA, and all of the other features you could ever want in an AM2+/AM2 motherboard, not to mention the Pre-OS environment that ASUS pioneered, and which allows you access to the Internet before you even boot into Windows on your computer.
  • Cons: None whatsoever.
