Summary: This is an alright little board. Handles my 8 core AM3+ just fine. but, I have had some issues with some of the components on it. My Optical Sound just recently stopped working, and my USB 2.0 ports on the back seem to flutter in and out. Honestly, disappointed by the longevity of this board, I've only had it a few months and it looks like I'll be replacing it sooner than later.
Summary: I've had it running for a month now and have no problems. It's very stable with AMD FX 8320, 16gb Ram, and Win 7. ASUS manual is also very good. The only issue is it does not have an IDE connection for older CD-ROMs or HD drives. I solved the problem by buying a small conversion adapter. Otherwise it's great.
Good board but lacks USB 3.0 Front panel connector.

Summary: Nice inexpensive main board. Asus quality and stability. Dual head video and 4 ram slots for 32 gig max memory. The only issue I had that prevented a 5 star review was no USB 3.0 connector on board. Very disappointed by this. I had to use a USB 2.0- USB 3.0 adapter in order to use USB 3.0 front ports on Antec Case.
