Summary: solid caps,anti-surge,6 core capability, overclock-able, pci express 2.0 and a three year warranty was some of the main features why I purchased this board. some things that i dont like is it dont have a internal speaker that makes that annoying beeep beeep sound at start up to tell you when there a fault or system checks. and wish it had a ide for my older but perfectly fine dvd writer.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS BOARD! The company will refuse to give you a refund if there are ANY problems with it. The first problem straight off the bat is that the RAM is barely compatible with the board. Gaming will get you a freeze up. The support off of AWD-IT is poor. I had to go out adn spend another £200 on a new board and CPU and trust me. It works better.
Summary: I've given this a 5-star rating because the motherboard bundle fitted my needs - not because it's the best thing since sliced bread - though it is no slouch either. The configuration is not the latest (it was first available on Amazon in Nov 2011), but neither is it the cheapest. Asus have a good reputation for motherboards and AMD processors usually offer better value for money than their Intel counterparts.
Summary: I bent pins on 2 Athalon 64 cpu's and a Semperon cpu, all of which are suitable for this motherboard according to the blurb. I anded up removing the plastic zif part of cpu socket and inserting cpu straight into socket but still no joy. Motherboard now destined for silicon heaven. I have always used Asus motherboards with 100% sucsess, I don't know if I was sold a damaged/"repaired" board or If Asus got it wrong. An expensive lesson.
Summary: The ASUS M5A78L-M LX3 is a very good motherboard if you are looking for a cheap upgrade, it has decent onboard graphics and very easy to set up, just put processor and ram in and was ready to go, didn't have to mess with bios. So if you are looking to build your own computer or just upgrade I would definitely recommend this motherboard.
Summary: The value for money is excellent, the product was delivered earlier than I expected the service was excellent. The Product arrived very fast and no damage was in sight. It came as it was described. The Box contains the motherboard, 2 right angled SATA cables, I/O shield, quick installation guide and as well as a driver disc. The Motherboard was well protected from any static.
Summary: Ive put this board together with the AMD FX6300 Black Edition 6 Core and 8GB Kingston Technology HyperX Genesis DDR3 1600MHz CL9, works like a charm, didn't need to flash the bios, just slot every thing together and hey presto =) Very happy with this mobo, only thing I should mention is that as Ian Crossan has said in a previous review, DO NOT install the Graphics Drivers from the CD, go to the AMD website [...
Summary: I have a mother board which is an earlier version of this and it failed and caused all sorts of problems. I don't believe the motherboard was at fault but old when it was fitted in my computer by a large company I shall not use again. Its performance is excellent and my PC is back to its normal high speed. Delivered superfast, well before the stated date, which is normal for Amazon.
