Summary: I bought this motherboard upon boot up I have no Ethernet or sound, suggested solutions go online and download the drivers, kinda stupid we don't have the Internet to download the drivers! Kind of makes it difficult to get online and download drivers when you know how a connection to access the Internet. With a lot of hassle, and my friends PC we solve the problem with the Ethernet. However, not as lucky with sound.
Summary: I bought this for my first gaming build, I threw this in a mATX case I got for sale that came with a PSU. I put an AMD FX-6300 CPU, 2x4g HyperX RAM, Nvidia Geforce GTX750 Ti and a 240g Sandisk ultra 3 SSD. I have to say I'm happy with the board. The bios is easy to use and has an overclock profile built in. The utilities that it came with all work well too and are worth keeping.
I will have a fun my newly build first computer without no problems

Summary: My compassion for computers is strong with mobo ,since having this board very reliable as rock. No crash No incompatible conflicts. I will have a fun my newly build first computer without no problems. If you want a board without USB 3.0 go for it! I serious think good for noob who loves computer like I do.
Summary: It was dead on arrival for me... I had a compatible cpu, gpu, power supply, and ram. And, the on-board light came on, but the system never seemed to start up... And I never got a single POST start up beep...(even after hours of troubleshooting)... And nothing ever came from the built in display or my gpu display... But I was able to return it without issue. I'm giving two stars for easy return. And then I bought an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 as a replacement...
Summary: So far I've used two AMD motherboards. One was this here ASUS , and the other a Gigabyte Motherboard. Both AMD motherboards had a new CPU.. The ASUS would try to power up once before it shut down while the Gigabyte Motherboard started up for about five minutes before it shut down and would not reboot again. I've read over several reviews and found that you'll need The newer DDR3 Memory in order for the newer MoBo's to start up.
Summary: Awesome budget board for budget builds. Cheap price with some awesome features like the core unlocker and support for the FX series. ( might have to update bios). Only complaint is the sata speed, amount of usb's and only 2 fan connectors. But regardless, you get what you pay for. Looking for something cheap and reliable that ISNT a cruddy AsRock board? Then this is the way to gooo. ( Not bashing on asrock boards in general. Just their "low-tier" boards.
WARNING: No chipset driver for Windows 8-But still good product

Summary: Pros- Tough, good price, does its job well Cons- Only SATA-II, not full support for Windows 8 This little guy was tough as nails during installation (in a good way). I put the wrong screw through the motherboard and into the stand offs, and I'm very surprised I didnt break it getting em out. but I didnt and all the components fit into it like a dream.
Summary: Great mobo at a good price. As always Asus quality is evident. Maybe the only thing I didn't like (but it is very common on micro mobos) is the fact you lose one of the small PCI-E slots if you use anything but the cheapest (small and skinny) videocard. But unless you have a real need for two of them, you'll find this mobo will work great.
Summary: I purchased this board to replace a bad board in a Dell XPS 7100. The Dell was giving 2 beeps saying it was the ram but the ram was replaced and still 2 beeps. I decided it was the board and ordered the Asus M5A78L and it works and fits inside the Dell case just fine. Lots of neat features and very easy to set up. My only complaint is that the back panel does not fit as good as it should.
