  • 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: 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 [...

Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard AM3+

wrinklie, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • 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.

Great, if you don't over clock

Chris Deary, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this board to go with an FX-6300. To be honest it struggles, It runs at the stock 3.5Ghz but will not boost to 4.1Ghz because of the limited Voltage regulators, as they have no heat sinks on them they quickly over head and under clock the processor causing a temporary slow down. Also the 3-pin fan connector has no intelligent control so you need a voltage reduction cable to silence any fans you have connected.

AVOID THIS MOTHERBOARD

Max, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought it for 8320 and it simply doesnt work (with the newest bios)! With NO overclocking in OCCT the processor is unstable and makes frequency drops every 0.5s to 3000mHz. Games are unplayable because of above mentioned drops. I have strong PSU, the motherboard supports the chip so what is wrong? ps. I turned off turbo and still the same :( mobo sucks, buy a better one.

Brilliant all rounder.

Ian_G, Amazon

  • Summary: Have now built 2 PCs using this Motherboard bundle. As it comes it is more than capable of running basic games, internet and word processing. Will need a half tidy graghics card though, if you want to run the more demanding games.
