Decent board, a little flakey

Tom Y., Newegg
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Warranty support is a big disappointment. Bought April 2012, requested RMA April 2014, they say the warranty began March 2011 (upon manufacture), and so wouldn't accept an invoice that was over a year after manufacture! Their "3 year warranty" begins at date of manufacture?
  • Pros: Decent feature set, though missing USB 3.0. Worked fine out of the box.
  • Cons: Always was a little flaky, not always booting first try. Onboard sound, left channel degraded to be mostly noise. Onboard sound was still seen by system, though disabled and add-in sound card working. Adding dual video PCI-E card caused BIOS to lock up within seconds of use, even after a BIOS res...

Stay away from cheap ASUS boards

Arthur F., Newegg
12 October 2013
  • Summary: p.s. ASUS please don't respond to this review and try to have me contact you. I've had about as much contact with you as I can stand for one lifetime.
  • Pros: I'm giving this board 2 stars because it did manage to last about 6 months, and ASUS has decent drivers. Other than that, there are no redeeming qualities.
  • Cons: I have had nothing but problems with ASUS budget boards. The tend to have quality control issues, and when you run into a problem (which is almost always after the return period ends) you're forced to deal with ASUS Indiana's RMA. NOTE: ASRock is owned and made by ASUS as well, so this review app...

Replacing after 5 months.

Anne D., Newegg
25 April 2012
  • Summary: Honestly, spend a bit more money on a mobo that you wont need to replace and has everything you need for future upgrades. 40 extra dollars is worth it. Dont go cheap on a mobo.
  • Pros: Cheap, good bios.
  • Cons: Only having one pcie slot leaves no room for graphical upgrades. No usb 3.0. No integrated graphics.

Not bad for a budget build.

brad b., Newegg
11 March 2012
  • Pros: 3 year warranty, good specs and good quality.
  • Cons: Only requires 6 screws to mount it into the case. You have to be very careful when plugging in the 20+4 pin connector. Once everything is plugged into it. Having more holes to mount the board would be a plus.

no s/pdif coax - only header

Nolan R., Newegg
20 February 2012

  • Pros: Well-designed board layout. Sufficient expansion. 4 DDR3 RAM slots. Easy ASUS tools for monitoring and overclocking.
  • Cons: Board has a header for s/pdif but no coax or optical port. Must purchase an additional expansion card to utilize digital audio out.
