Bad support

  • Summary: All they did was to put a new shipping label on my box and send it back to me!! Same motherboard, same problem.They say it was repaired. Ridiculous!! Don't buy ASUS and expect great service. Live chat just cut me off and ended the chat!
  • Pros: It worked for over 2 years
  • Cons: I have been trying to have the motherboard repaired/replaced for over 2 months. The first replacement was defective. Two of the DIMM slots would not work. The only way to boot the computer was to use slots A1 or A2. Would not recognizeB1 or B2. After talking to support, I was told to return it fo...

I'm absolutely happy with this

  • Summary: Six months of use without a problem. It's run my Win7 Home Ultimate system without so much as a hiccup despite daily use. No blue screens or other hardware problems, no silly buggery with the BIOS or drivers, I'm absolutely happy with this.

Simplicity

  • Summary: I cant give a really specific review other than it works and was easy to install since it is the first MB ive had to install.
  • Pros: I used this mb to replace my first one. Ive never built a pc myself before so i was a little nervous at first but it was a breeze. Everything worked instantly and ive been smooth sailing since day one.
  • Cons: If my speakers are plugged in it makes an odd static/screechy noise when the computer is turning off which did not happen with my old MB. No real issue though just confused as to why.

User Review

  • Pros: The bios is great! The board is easy to work with and install. The bios and system monitoring is awesome.
  • Cons: The sound card must be messed up! It always say's that the sound jack was unplugged or plugged in, then it will temporarily mute my computer sound. I don't know if it is the Realtek HD Audio manager or if it is the hardware.

Wrong Item

Cody, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: I had bought this motherboard to build my custom gaming computer. Motherboard came in the Evo box, had all of the Evo manuals and such. The motherboard was not an Evo though. It was a standard M5A97. The motherboard does not have the connector for the front panel Usb 3.0 terminal.

Incorrect item

Ray, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: I rate this product 1 star because it was the incorrect item. The box it came in was not presentable which is not the original manufacturer box. I have been contacting the seller for a couple of day about the situation and they don't respond to me.
