Running since 2009

Gregory R., Newegg
9 May 2015
  • Summary: This mother board has been amazing! It still keeps chugging along. I may migrate this board and CPU over to a server that I host games on... Though with the power draw and no SATA 4 ports it might be time to retire this and add it to the mothball fleet.
  • Pros: I have had this board since it was released sometime in 2009. It had all the latest and greatest tech like DDR3 RAM. Surprisingly it's still going strong even with countless hours of gaming, video rendering and video transcoding... Paired with the Phenom 2 810 CPU, it is still plenty fast enough ...
  • Cons: Unfortunately like all tech products... Its now become outdated... It doesn't have SATA 3 (6Gbs) and the processor that I have is much slower to the modern CPUs. As well as being slower it also uses quite a bit more power vs the latest generation Intels/AMDs.

A nice motherboard until it breaks

Kyel M., Newegg
4 July 2014
  • Summary: This is the board that shattered my trust of ASUS products.
  • Pros: Great for overclocking and doing things with both windows xp and seven.
  • Cons: The bios is more fragile than a one nanometer thick sheet of styrofoam. Like the five billion other people that got this board, it will eventually fail to post and even show signs of booting, which is a HUGE letdown.

Alvaro P., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Summary: It does not die, this thing can survive the wrath of the sun..
  • Pros: I'm just now upgrading my video card and am in awe that this board is so stable, so reliable and so dam good! Five years old and still running as strong as when it arrived. I previously have had gigabyte mobo's and after this asus board I am reformed. Good job asus, you hooked me.

Worst MB ever had

Aaron S., Newegg
26 February 2013
  • Pros: Looks pretty
  • Cons: Does not post. Have had to attempt to post bios 76 times before it'd finally go for 1 day use. Once it starts up it runs solid but once you shut down good luck getting it to post bios again. Complete waste of money, worn down my other pieces of hardware from attempting to start, & complete nightm...

User Review

Craig C., Newegg
20 January 2012
  • Summary: I hate when companies don't stand by their products and give you the best service/product possible.
  • Pros: Maybe a good motherboard if you can get it to work.
  • Cons: I've had a very frustrating experience with this motherboard. This was my first build and I wanted a top of the line processor. I ended up going with the AMD Phenom II X6 1090 T. From day one I had problems with the motherboard. It would freeze at random spots. After a few months it would no long...

RAID Failure. Awful Technical and Customer Support

als, Amazon
2 June 2011
  • Summary: The RAID capability of this MOBO does NOT function correctly. It will report a failed disk (you get to guess which one since it does not tell you) when no disk has failed. When you replace the "failed" disk, it does not rebuild the RAID. There are no messages of ANY kind during the RAID rebuild.

Say no to triple channel memory!

Lee T., Newegg
19 May 2011
  • Summary: Spent a month messing around with this board until I finally figured out what was wrong. When I bought the board I first checked the QVL and selected from it the decided 6GB GSkill RAM.
  • Pros: Looks great. Works great.
  • Cons: Will not take 3 sticks of RAM (Triple Channel Architecture) despite triple channel memory appearing on the QVL (qualified vendors list)!!
