Summary: The motherboard works great. I bought this to replace another ASUS motherboard (slightly different model) for my customer that was randomly crashing. I had bought the other one second hand, supposedly unused, when I originally built the machine but I suspect it had been static damaged.
Summary: Nice older motherboard that I am keeping as a backup in case mine burns out, or I might build as a server. Although a number of years old, this motherboard coupled with a quad core processor and 8GB memory is plenty for any business user, as myself. Shipping was fast and it was well packed.
Asus has gone HORRIBLE - RAM problems, BSOD problems
15 July 2012
Summary: Asus has gone major downhill.
Pros: Cheap, AMD 785G Chipset, 4 RAM slots
Cons: Asus' quality has really gone downhill. I have 2 friends who have problems with new Asus boards too. The boards are all bought between 2010 and 2011. 1st friend: 3rd and 4th RAM slots stopped working all of the sudden, started getting BSOD's and no POST (identical problem to mine) 2nd friend: odd...
Pros: Had everything i wanted out of the board runs pretty smooth and wasnt a hard setup started up loaded 7 Ultimate no problems. The Board is fast as i need it to be running quad core with 6 gigs and not a hitch not overclocked.
