Summary: After reviewing mobos decided on this one for price and compatability for my old case. Received mobo with just cpu hdd and monitor, tried to boot. Fan worked but no monitor. Called Asus and tech went thru some steps and determined it was defective. Amazon did stand behind the order and will get pretested replacement. Will let you know how a working mobo works after I get it.
Summary: This board has a known problem with the "North-Bridge" which prevents the USB controller from working properly. The ASUS Support rep told me that it was a known problem that could not be fixed but could not explain why the company was still selling the boards. I give it 2 stars only because the rep was very honest and straightforward about the issue.
