  • Pros: - Price - Easy to use BIOS - Size

Seems like a nice board

  • Summary: If you want Windows 10, move along. Neither Asus, AMD, nor Microsoft have a driver for it.
  • Pros: Board has all the connectors and features I wanted and the price is good. Might have been happy with this on Windows 7.
  • Cons: This board has a built in Radean ATI 3000 chip. There is no Windows 10 support for it. Not on Asus's website, not on AMD or ATI or Microsoft. Display looks like carp with the default generic driver. 4:3 ratios with a modern HDMI monitor 16:9 ratios.

  • Summary: I immediately updated Bios at Asus web site: http://www.asus.com/US/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/HelpDesk_Download/ I believe many of problems cited in other reviews solved by Bios update. Coupled this mobo with AMD FX 8350, impressed by solid fast, trouble free performance.
  • Pros: Price Good Layout Easy Bios Update
  • Cons: None at this price with Rebate

  • Pros: Had to replace my brothers HP Envy Motherboard with this Asus one. Fit right in and i can tell it better quality then the HP Board, a lot of SATA ports and USB 3.0. Works good with the new 500w Power supply. with AMD FX 6330 6 core Chip. Good UATX Board
  • Cons: The 12v rail when on backwards but that may be just the power supply

  • Summary: This motherboard is powering off every few hours. If you check newegg for information about people attempting to fix it you will find longer explanations. I set up this motherboard in a way that it should work all other components have been tested and this is clearly an issue with the model, look...
