Poor Build, Poorer Compatibility, Frequent Crashes, Do not buy!

Summary: Extremely poor quality motherboard. Well starting off , the lock in for the RAM chips was chipped and poorly built plastic. I ran an FX 8370 and it randomly shut down the first day, so i contacted AMD , and got the chip replaced.
Great product and works perfectly - the best for the money

Summary: I will give a review of a mid-way expert who knows how to install and assemble a desktop but not in that business. I am an engineer by profession which is why I believe many of you are in the same shoes as myself (we know a lot but not everything).
Summary: My previous Gigabyte motherboard finally died on me after just 2 years of use, so I was in search of a more reliable motherboard. Came across this particular ASUS model and the price after rebate was just right for me.
The motherboard itself works fine, but the rebate company that Asus uses is ...

Summary: The motherboard itself works fine, but the rebate company that Asus uses is ridiculous. They denied my claim because they "couldn't read the included printed out invoice". They have scanned copies of all the documents that I sent. I see the invoice clearly enough.
Summary: This motherboard automatically overclocked my AMD FX-8350 from 4.0GHz to 4.3GHz and then up to 4.5GHz without me needing to fiddle in the BIOS and manually OC anything. I LOVE all the USB ports that are on this mobo because I have a ton of external peripherals constantly plugged into my PC.
Computer running much faster, but tough to tell if this MB did much

Summary: Upgraded my PC with this m/b, newer processor, hard drive and 5 ghz wireless card, and from 4 to 8 gb ram and saw some performance improvement on windows 7 (come to find out windows 7 maxes out at 4 gigs of ram anyways), but not enough to make much a difference to me.
Summary: Everything is fine with the motherboard. besides the 12v connector slot... i Dont know if its the motherboard or the psu, but the connection doesnt go all the way. If anyone can help me my email is: Oblivion514@hotmail.com
Summary: Just installed last night, so I can't speak for its longevity, but it was very easy to install and connect. No issues with getting my new build up and running. Haven't played too much in Bios yet, but from what I saw it's very easy to use and being able to use my mouse is handy.
Summary: I've been using this board for a few days now and I don't have any complaints. I bought this to use for PC gaming and some video editing here and there. I paired it up with an AMD FX 6300 with the intentions to overclock in the future if needed.
