Summary: Great board for overclocking, just need to learn how to best utilize what its strengths and weaknesses are. I recently got an M5A99FX and I like it way more. Still Asus will remain #1 in Motherboards. Service is another issue.
Summary: I ran into a few hassles with the build i did with this and it really revolved around the lack of a onboard vga port. All-in-all you get what you pay for and this is a good board for the price.
Almost perfect...but I missed one important little detail...no front 3.0 USB!

Summary: This is my first computer build ever from scratch so I went with this since it was a great price and good reviews,,,BUT I missed one little thing that isn't a huge deal but a bit annoying...it does NOT support front panel USB 3.0 Inputs!! There is no header connection for this..
Summary: I had an old AsRock board that died within a year during a power outage. The board had many integrated parts on it, but it's not worth the money for a board that dies in less than a year. There also (as far as I know) was no warranty on it. So I opted for ASUS, a brand I trust.
Summary: I had to return this board. It wouldn't work with any OS, no matter how I installed it. I bought a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD and worked fie the first time.
