Summary: I would not recommend this board to anyone attempting to build a modern gaming rig. Its shortcomings are not reflected in the price.
Pros: - Nothing in particular jumps out. It comes with all features listed and nothing about its design is particularly offensive. However...
Cons: -Lack of USB3.0 port -Four sata ports doesn't leave much room for raid setups -Adding a PCI sata controller to mine, and then booting up with any sata devices plugged into it, caused the on-board ports to no longer function. However, adding the controller, booting up, and then adding devices to t...
Pros: Have had no problems with setup or install. It works just fine. no over clocking as it is running basic software that does not require much power. Using a AMD 1100T and 8 Gb DDR3 1600. installed a printer port on the PCIe 1x slot to connect to a CNC machine.
Does exactly what it should, functions as described

Summary: If I had to do- over, I'd order a board with more upgrade potential. This guy gets the job done, but I really wish I had another PCIe slot and the option to increase memory. That being said, it is exactly as advertised.
Pros: Asus is an awesome brand. Very reliable and always at a great price. I have build several computers and would not trust any other than Asus.

I was fortunate that it still worked and did not have to have a replacement. This really surprised me. I have always shopped at Newegg and have never had something like t...
Summary: Used this on a re-build, and works fine. Love the new-style BIOS, much easier to use. One question though, if USB3 is so much better, why have oodles of USB2 ports, and only a few USB3? Surely it would be easy to provide all USB3?
