It's great!!!

  • Summary: If you pair this with an AMD FX CPU, you will NOT be disappointed. I have been using this motherboard for gaming, and it has not let me down. My previous board and cpu were Intel integrated and caused many crashes. This motherboard, however, has not crashed or conflicted at all; most likely because it's AMD based. Anyway, I would highly recommend this motherboard to anyone looking to upgrade or build a powerful PC.

Great Motherboard for a good price...

  • Summary: Great Motherboard. Not too expensive and has many quality features. For a budget PC build this is an excelent Motherboard. Accepted the RAM values at 1600Mhz without any changes to the BIOS. I installed Windows 8.1 and it found most all the drivers including the NIC. A good rule of thumb before you purchase any Motherboard is to visit the manufactures website and check their Quality Vendors List (QVL).

User Review

  • Summary: Bought this board to build a budget system as I had an old AM3 CPU on the shelf and didn't want to break the bank. Out of the box all appeared well but when mounting to the case it became apparent that the I/O shield was a few mm out of alignment to the ports behind. Some shimming was required to raise the board up enough to allow unrestricted access through the openings... A first for me.
  • Pros: Good budget board, Well laid out
  • Cons: Poor fit and finish on I/O shield, Not quite wide enough to be a full ATX board

  • Summary: Decent MOBO for the price you are paying. I used this in my $700 gaming build and haven't run into any problems so far. The software that come with this MOBO is garbage but that is expected lol.

  • Summary: I bought this so I could build my own computer for the first time. Along with a little advice from friends, I was able to read the instructions for installing this an all of my components. In case anyone's wondering, I'm using the AMD FX 4-Core Black Edition FX-4300.

Amazon was great with the returns had returned the broken ones twice ...

  • Summary: I received 2 of these boards DOA, friend i was doing the replacement for opted not to try for a 3rd. Never had a DOA issue with any other ASUS boards, maybe my time finally came. Just my mileage, Amazon was great with the returns had returned the broken ones twice within the same week and still got the other board we decided on.

Does not support Debian Linux

joatmor, Amazon
27 June 2014
  • Summary: Debian Linux installed ok but after rebooting the system kept locking up. I tried tweaking the UEFI settings per various recommendations but to no avail. I was forced to return the board to Amazon. Once again Amazon's awesome customer service was there for me. If you are a Linux user look elsewhere.
