Summary: This is my first ASUS and I'm very impressed. Decent on board video, 4 ram slots, USB3 and SATA III. Plus PCI slots for a "real" video card or whatever else you might want to add. There's a BIOS that let's you tamper with just about everything. ASUS also includes a decent manual, several utilities to monitor and over/under clock the board, lower power consumption, unlock additional cores, update BIOS etc. etc.
Summary: Purchased the motherboard with an AMD 415E low power CPU. Has worked great for months with Windows XP and VMware. It's plenty fast for non-gaming applications and very stable. Recently I have re-purposed this system for NAS with freenas 8.0. With 8GB of RAM this system can do long term R/W at 90MB/sec using only SATA 3 drives. This is nearly saturating the gigabit lan. Overall very nice motherboard. Have tried 5 different kinds of RAM with no problems whatsoever.
Summary: The biggest problem I've had with this Motherboard is fighting with analog sound. It sometimes works ... sometimes it doesn't. It'll randomly stop working the next time the Mobo is powered off and will simply refuse to output audio (even though it detects that the speakers are plugged in and that an audio source is being played ... yes, I checked that my speakers worked) Don't bother with this motherboard unless you plan to use the HDMI output for sound.
Summary: It's been a few months since the build. Love it! No problems. Worked as advertised. Used the onboard graphics for about a week for entertainment. Hooked to TV with HDMI. Don't know what kind of games the onboard can handle. Installed a ATI 6870 for games. But no problems. Everything has been plug and play.
