Solid as a rock. Easy to build on. Fair documention. Lousy support.

Summary: Typical Asus quality board. It has been as reliable as possible. Very good performance and compatibility with numerous different memory modules as well as video cards. Only 4 stars because Asus customer support is a joke.
Summary: I only got this because it had an nforce chip on it and at the time I thought i really needed that for SLI. What a mistake...
Pros: Easy to overclock and overclocks very well. With an inexpensive H80i cooler I'm able to hit 4GHz EASY and super stable with this board using my Phenom IIx6 1090T.
Cons: Bad vdroop...7-10% in some cases but obviously not that big of a deal as you'll still get a pretty nice OC from it. What absolutely sucks about this board is that there's no SATA III, no USB3, no future FX-Core capability as it's only an AM3. Slots are very close together so if you're running SLI...
Summary: My system: Phenom X4 B55 @ 4.07 GHz<FSB @ 220/18.5 multiplier>-1.50v (1.44-1.47 after vdroop) Cooler Master Hyper 212 (dual fans) Gigabyte GTX 660s in sli 8gb G skill ripjaws ddr3 1600 @ 1760 8-9-9-24-2T 1.6v 120gb Samsung 840 Series SSD as boot drive 2 HDDs i dont care to list Cooler master 912 all...
Pros: Have had this board since 12/2010 no issues...bought open box deal and was very happy with the gamble...running an unlocked x2 555 to x4 b55 @ 4.07 GHz stable all day even in a warm climate...had gtx460 sli to start just recently switched to gtx 660 sli no issues...excellent choice for the "mid-h...
Pros: One of the only six core ready sli boards on the market when it came out.
Cons: Had bad dimm slot out of the gate, sent back replaced and a year later SATA port dies . I sent back the board and received a replacement board that had another bad dimm slot. I sent it back and recieved a board in working order. Not a full year later and the EATX12V port dies.
Summary: I run twin GTX 460's, 16gb ram, and Phenom II 965. I use it for gaming and movies. With the right software it will convert DVD'd into 3D and play over a DLP. I don't oc the ram. I have been really happy with the board and recomend it if you have a AM3 chip. I see the 965's are $100 now.
Pros: Great cooling, nice board layout, holds twin Nvidia video cards.
Cons: I don't have any cons about this board. It has been very stable and reliable. I have had some slow downs trying to push 3D gaming onto a 60" DLP but that was expected and not really issues with the board. 6 GBs sata would have been nice.
Pros: I liked the layout on the board. Visually pleasing if you have an open case. The chipset heat sink is pretty knarly looking. I runs good with the mushkin ddr3 1600mhz ram I have in it it has been a very stable system
Cons: This isn't really the boards fault but I wasn't able to unlock my phenom II x2 555. So buying a 965 x4 BE. I wish it had a few more fan controllers for a ram cooler but I have 5 cases fans... plus the CPU fan and 2 gpu fans soooo I tend to over do it.
Pros: Awesome Board. Sound/Stable/Strong Bios..........Spacing is PERFECT ON THE BOARD!...Needed this for an old AM# CPU....All around great board!....
Cons: A little tricky overovercloking memory.... I was able to overclock my memory to 2000mhz but BF3 would crash....Weird!..I had to lower tyhe spedd to 1866mhz then BF3 was stable....Windows Was stable the entire time.......Can anyone help on that?
