Excerpt: Rebuilt my son's computer, the board installed uncomplicated, fired up and ran great. Working with an Athlon II x4 @ three.1 GHz, 4 GB Corsair Vengeance memory total, running on Windows 7 64 bit. Utilized on board Vidio for now, as I had to preserve the price down, My son and family members are delighted with the construct and the speed for now.Have constantly been delighted with Asus, great support on drivers and Bios upgrades and of course AMD CPU's rock!
Excerpt: Excellent MOBO, installed smoothly, six SATA connections are nice. On board video failed, appears the heatsink/video card got unseated somehow. The program was built and I needed it at an occasion, plus I had a video card as element of a combo, so I was capable to use it... had no choice but to use it. Disappointed that I had to press this into service with a failed onboard video, but that's my fault for not organizing a small additional ahead.
Excerpt: got the board in this morning just ordered yesterday and suprised with the onboard graphic so far lookin like a steal for 70 bucks none will repost in about a month might get yet another one particular
Excerpt: Everything functions correct out of the box. Installed with Phenom II processor. Installed Windows 7 64 bit edition Ultimate. Anything worked on the first try. The fan is quite quiet.

Excerpt: *It -has- the potential to unlock cores... BIOS requires also much function around to even get anything out of it.*The OC capabilities are decent, yet, in numerous cases, the board will inform you your OC failed prior to it even attempts to activate. *The on-board graphics failed and started generating entire system lock-ups+artifacts after much less than 1 hour of use. This has been observed in many other evaluations.
Excerpt: Quite good mobo for price. Would be better if it had mosfet heatsinks do NOT overclock without having adding heatsinks to the MOSFETS. The farthest I can get with my Phenom II 1090T is 3.7ghz before the mobo temps attain around 50C and it automatically begins throttling down my cpu at any clock following 3.7 with prime95. My cpu temp is only hitting 42C. I'll be finding some heatsinks quickly which should repair the challenge.
Excerpt: Unlocked my athlon II x4 620's L3 cache, Overclocked it 3.4 GHz with the northbridge temps going over 38c, six SATA ports!!, 6 USB ports!! fantastic low cost motherboard that I will use till the AM3+ motherboards come out. Only 1 Chasis fan with no PWM, now all my fans are operating at full speed and case is also loud, good thing about this is that my processor and other hardware runs cool aswell.
