Summary: I my personal opinion this board is great! I chose it because of its speed and ASUS reputation. Its main role is for a small nComputing server, this is a list of my setup.... AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Processor (HDE00ZFBGRBOX) ASUS AM3 / AMD 870 / DDR3 / USB 3.0 / SATA 6 Gb/s ATX...
Summary: I would recamend this board to anyone. The board has a real nice blue and brown theme. Not having the on board video really helps the price because that is unneeded unless you don't get a video card. The Sata 3 6 G/B s is awesome so is the USB 3. The digital audio sound amazing.
Summary: Replaced a MSI board that was DOA with this ASUS board. Added Memory, CPU, DVD and video card and immediately was up and running. This board has a core unlocker feature for AMD multicore chips.
Summary: Bought this board to use in a brand new Win 7 build, and so far it's doing almost everything I wanted it to. Tons of nice features and plenty of BIOS options. There is an option in the BIOS to overlock the CPU by just changing a couple of settings.
Summary: Its a great board, im running windows 7 and does some great work too.... Seems a little buggish, few system shut downs but board has tons of features but dont get carried away, you will end up freezing and and and going unresponsive if u go into it to fast......
Summary: Update 3/25/2011 My first impressions were good and I listed them below, yet that is where the happy story eneds and after a few months, there IS STILL NO SOLUTION for the loud poping coming from the onbaord audio.
Summary: Like the other reviewer said it saw my 1600 ram as 1333. I had to change it in the bios. it also didn't see my ram at first but like the instruction book told me; I held down the button next to the ram slots and restarted and the the board saw my ram.
Summary: This was my first time building a computer. For the price and performance you can"t beat this motherboard. On board graphics are just a waste of money, thats why I chose this one. Ive been using this motherboard for about a week. No problems. I will update you guys if anything goes wrong.
