Summary: This mobo was purchased to replace an old MSI board. The best $120 I've ever spent. May not be the latest, or have every bell & whistle; but for the money, you can't beat it. Slapped in my old Phenom II 955 Black, and 1.5 year old OCZ 1600 RAM. POSTed no problem. My 3 yr old could have set it up. EPU & TCU, SATA 6/GB, Crossfire, USB 3, etc. too much to list. Even has an UltraDMA 133/100/66 header in case you want to hook up an old PATA HDD or CD/DVD burner.
Summary: My MOBO carrived without attaching screws and standoffs. I had to use a few I had laying around from an old RMA board. DO NOT INSTALL the board w/o the correct screws and standoffs. I had some shorting issues and chased my tail for a while. I wouldn't have thought it would make such a difference. Once I picked up the correct screws and standoffs it worked fine. Just finished testing the board.
Summary: I've been using this board with a 1055T for about 3 months now, and this review will be geared more towards the enthusiast. I've pushed this board relatively hard now, and will impart some of my experiences. First, the pros. Build quality is amazing. The layout is fairly well done, with minor considerations. The BIOS is simple and easy, as to be expected with an ASUS board.
