Summary: I bought this ASUS board & put my perfectly good AMD II 4 core processor it it. It WOULD NOT BOOT& with a case speaker it wouldn't even make any BEEPS either. The only thing it did... was the LED light was on showing it was getting power. The ASUS tech said it was either the processor or the board. I knew the processor was working OK, but in my MSI board, I had another identical processor. The ASUS tech suggested I put it in the ASUS board. STILL NOTHING...!!...
Summary: Good: Price, Easy install, 2x PCI express x1 Bad: None to date Other: needed a board capable of supporting AMD 1045T. Swapped out ASUS 3x series for this, inserted CPU, plugged in drives, booted up without issue or need for driver upgrades.
Summary: Great Motherboard! Paired this up with an AMD FX 4300, and it handles overclocking very nicely. Asus is an amazing brand, and this one isn't excluded. The price is extremely fair and is a great value! My GF loves it.
Summary: I bought this mobo to replace my ASUS MVA2 HDMI series when upgrading my system. As said in other reviews it can definitely use a 125 watt CPU as I checked the manual before I started my upgrade. Originally this was designed for Phenom 2 X6 cpus which run over 95 watts typically on load.
Summary: Everything fits, all the USB ports worked for me. I've been using it for about 4 months now with low grade processor and radeon HD 7770 graphics card. The only thing I didn't like was the on-board audio. Could have been a little better.
Summary: Picked up this mobo since it was pretty cheap and I was on a budget. This was my first attempt at building my own computer and it worked great for about 2 weeks. All of the sudden my computer wouldn't boot and no response from my CPU fan. Asus told me to ship the defective mobo (for $15) and would send it back within 5-7 business days. I waited anxiously and when the mobo came back a week later I had the same exact problem as before.
Summary: I have a few of these for gaming rigs paired with FX-6300. Cheap, they work, they have what I need. Missing a lot of features, but I don't need any of them. Don't notice any gaming issues while using these despite many posts on the internet talking about the FX-6300 being throttled (at stock) on these motherboards. Don't take my word for it, but I am not having any major issues.
