Summary: I used this board with the AMD FX-8350 cpu. It is extremely fast, and I can even stream large mkv files through my PS3. The audio on this board is also HD and will play DTS files. I knocked off one star because the SATA ports are sideways. Overall I am very pleased with this board. I bought 2 of these boards for 2 builds and both are running perfect.
Summary: Good Board. unfortunately I left it a PIN is USB 3.0 internal connector so it does not work. The board provides good facilities and connections, ofcourse is a mid-range motherboard, it's time to build more ASUS board with PCIE 3.0. Your workmanship is spectacular, pleasing and obvious quality. Recommended for new stakeholders in the PC Build.
Summary: Solid board, good UEFI BIOS and well laid out. The biggest thing I've seen is people upset at the SATA connectors. Most cases have a cutout right at that point on the board and if you take your time you can route the perfectly to the ports with no cable showing at all. Other than that the only thing I've seen is overclocking the VRMs throttle if you are going for a high overclock on an 83XX series FX chip.
Summary: It is installed on my computer - the one I'm using to type this review - so, I assume it is working great. I'm not a techie. My computer guru told me to order it, so he could use it to build this new computer, so I did. I only gave 4 stars, because I don't know enough about it to feel good about ranking it higher.
Summary: I have been building my own PC's for many years now and my favor boards are ASUS, good and stable for over clocking, very reliable, sturdy and good features for the money. My only gripe is the BIOS (software that controls all components on the board) it has come a long way but still at times is finicky, i.e. once it encounters an error on boot-up one has to be persistent to clear it up.
Summary: The EPU and TPU make Overclocking and Energy saving a breeze. This can use up to a Piledriver CPU and up to 32gb of DDR3 RAM. It has 10 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0 rear inputs with 3 headers for up to 6 more USB 2.0 ports. With 7.1 channel sound you can hook up any number of speakers. It is built with 80% recycled parts making it even more energy effictient.
