Summary: Maybe i got a lemon or maybe this is how these boards are made. Everything was working fine until I installed a new video card then my onboard sound stopped working. I knew there was a short as when i plugged in my mic on the front jacks the headphone icon came on and when i pluged in the headphone the headphone icon vanished and the realtek icon flashed digital connection detected.
Summary: Had this running a few weeks. Software could use some more work, however I have had no issues with the board itself. Settings work great. Did the BIOS update right away. Fan controls are great. Keeps the system cool and quiet even under load.
Summary: AMD 8320 FX Seagate 1 TB Solid State Hybrid Drive EVGA Geforce GTX760 FTW 4GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon Memory Gamer Series 16GB (you really only need 8) WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive Corsair Air 540 Corsair HX 750 Watt Logitech K400 keyboard The BIOS for this board is very sleek. You have to get useto it and it's features but you can figure it out by watching YouTube videos on tweeking it to your liking.
Very easy to use mobo whether the bios, or the connections.

Summary: I just upgraded from my M578 mobo and got an amd fx-8350 8 core. it was super easy to set up, bios is simple and easy to use as well as quick, and can give you all your system info right at setup.
Summary: Board works very well for now. I will definitally update if it takes a turn for the worst. Also if it does fault, I will explain how the warrenty Process goes. Good Luck on building your System!
Pros: First if you're looking ate the ownership and tech knowledge for buying products, we(the reveiwers enter that not the site.) Second order of business, The board works fantastically. No DOA plugged the components in recognized everything. Not a single hiccup on getting the system running from the box. Flawless with my Vishera FX-6300 CPU. So far excellent buy for the actual product.
Cons: As with any re-bate they want to keep their money. My rebate got declined because " number of items allowed was exceeded." I only have the one ASUS Motherboard.... that is the only thing I mailed in a rebate for. So when you mail in a rebate don't expect it to be easy. I also called to talk to some one and got the machine to a point where it was going to have me speak with someone then told me they are closed in the middle of the day on a monday. I'll keep trying but ...
Summary: I don't like to write lengthy reviews, short and sweet for the win! Asus has made a awesome motherboard here it worked perfectly with my AMD 8 core 8350. I am running windows 8.1 full version with a 256gb solid state hard drive 1tb WD slave and it boots up hella fast! The motherboard has a TON of bells and whistles and plenty of connections, actually i thought there was a bit to many for my needs. It comes with great software. Overall I could not be happier.
Summary: this bord was fine for the first 2 months then on the 3rd month the bord started giving me issue like cant detect hd nic or sound I got them fixed but the nic wont work now windows 7 8 8.1 wont even detect it but the orange lights are flashing like theres activity
Summary: After going through hell trying to deal with a cheap microATX 700 series Gigabyte board, I finally decided to switch back to good ol' Asus, This board exceeds my expectations in every way, and plays well with my other hardware. Pros: - 900 series chipset for FX CPUs - Faster USB transfer speeds than expected, even on USB 2 - All fan ports are 4-pin (including 2 CPU fan ports) - Other great hardware expansions features - UEFI BIOS - Sturdy and looks great Cons: - None My...
Summary: Installed this MoBo on my first build and this thing is incredible. I have an AMD 8 core CPU and together they are unstoppable. The BIOS has an EZ mode that's really handy. You can change the performance settings and many other things.
