Summary: I've had this board so long I can't remember when I bought it. I'd say i've had it at least 8 years give or take. I'm very knowledgeable but also quite lazy. With that said, i haven't taken caution with this board as I should have. It's been in 3 different cases in it's life.
Engineered by ASUS to fail 6 months after end of warranty
2 November 2013
Summary: I purchased this board in February of 2010. The warranty ran out in February 2013. In October of 2013 I decided to upgrade my RAM from 4 gb to 8 gb (from two 2 gb sticks to 4 2 gb sticks).

Summary: A very good Asus board with a lot of great features. I bought this to pair with an AMD Phenom II X2 555 cpu. With this board, Iother two cores for a Phenom II X4 Deneb class processor. I also was able to overclock to 3.5 GHz with no problem.

Summary: MB works great if the system your using regular workstation. If you plan on using this MB for the backbone of a server, DON'T. This MB drivers don't support Windows Home Server OS, and you will be forced purchase addition cards for networking capabilities.
Summary: I bought this bord and at first it ran fantastic. then I started getting occasional blue screen of death stateing dumping memory. Im still working with tech support trying to convince them its their board and not operateing system as they claim. I replaced every pice of hardware in the tower.
Summary: This is a great motherboard. Has a load of USB ports, easy setup, a lot of other ports and looks great in my computer. I love the 8+2 phase power, the "turbo Key" and the fact that I can OC the memory as high as 1800mhz.
