Great motherboard!

Richard K., Newegg
3 September 2012
  • Summary: None. I purchased this motherboard off of an online auction site and it was hardly used by the previous owner as he never finished his computer build with it.
  • Pros: This motherboard has the ability to host four ATI videocards in Crossfire mode. It also supports AM3 AMD processors and up to 16 GB of DDR2 memory.
  • Cons: If you are using a SATA hard drive with this motherboard, do not jumper it in any way, shape, or form or you will receive an error concerning the drive during POST.

  • Pros: Great board! got it in May when it was 99 bucks! PROS:-Great look -8+2Phase vrms -VRM Cooling -Unlocks my PII 550BE to a B50BE with ease. -Can run 2 gtx 460s in sli using the SLI hack.
  • Cons: Doesnt make me coffee? In seriousness I took off an egg because the first one i got was DOA. got in contact with newegg and they replaced it within 2 days :) For a crossfire enabled board i was dissappointed that i didnt recieve a CF cable with it. Another CON... Doesnt support native SLI :(

Poor driver support

UrQuan3, Amazon
17 February 2010
  • Summary: An excellent premium board. All the features you could want, except no updates. ASUS has not released updated drivers for this board since its release. Both the audio and network have issues, yet there is no updated drivers for either.

I like ASUS

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2010
  • Summary: CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 920 2.8GHz processor Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Superclocked Edition Memory: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 Power Supply: XIGMATEK MC NRP-MC851 850W modular PS Hard Drive: WD Caviar Green WD5000AADS 500GB Operating System: XP Home DVD Burner: Lite-On 24X Model:...
  • Pros: My build using this board was easy. Everything worked the first time. I've been running this board for just over 7 months now with no problems. This is my second ASUS board that I have ever used, and my experience with both have been great.
  • Cons: If you use the 1066 memory, you have to manually set the BIOS to make it work properly. I had to do a little reading to understand what settings I should use. I like to plug and play, so that was a little annoying.

Great Board, Easy build.

Mr. P., Newegg
4 February 2010
  • Pros: I have nothing bad to say about the board. Fired up first time w/ Win7.
  • Cons: I knocked off 1 egg because the enclosed CD and utilities were not up to date (the loader identified the OS as MCE and wouldn't go any further) ASUS support refused to ship out an updated CD. OK, a minor anoience but for 180$ american they could afford a stamp.

overall good product

  • Summary: i do get display driver crashes with my 5770 with up to date drivers. i dunno if its the drivers or the mobo...kinda iffy about spending $ on a new mobo and not resolving the issue
  • Pros: tons of features, and OCability...holds lots of RAM and 4gpu's
  • Cons: for the people having boot and lock up issues. i had probs also..no signal, or mode not supported on startup...also the fans just running full blast for minutes....the auto settings in your bios do not set right. my cpu and ram voltages were too high with auto on...i had to manually set cpu to 1....

NO Drivers

Benjamin M., Newegg
30 January 2010
  • Summary: why no 64 drivers
  • Pros: 4 pci express, large heat sink, 4 fan headers
  • Cons: NO DRIVERS, if you have a 64-bit operating system don't get his motherboard the drivers dont come on the cd/dvd and the way to download them from asus is not in English

Tech support stinks

Timothy A., Newegg
22 January 2010
  • Summary: Explained in detail to tech support about this issue and twice I sent this board to them for REPLACEMENT and they returned the SAME board to me with nothing resolved!!!
  • Pros: Runs great when it runs....
  • Cons: Board ran fine until it stopped booting up. It will start and go into BIOS but when you save & exit, it won't boot into Windows. It just sits there with the fans spinning. Have to then clear cmos and unplug PSU to get it to restart into BIOS again.
