Summary: After fixing my hard drive I have decided to update my review of this board, initially I was having issues with random crashes and gave this board a 1 out of 5 but now that I can actually use my OS and be interrupted by the BSOD I found myself using most of the software that came with it quite a...
Summary: Board does everything I need I use mainly for photography photoshop cs5 and lightroom. My only complaint would be the cable between the board and hard drive. Where it connects at the board is at an angle so it makes it hard to connect multiple hard drives.
Summary: Its a great board at a very reasonable price. It has all the connections you could ever want and a great manual to help the install. Throw in a big Pile Driver and some DDR3 and you can update the tired junk in your favorite case.

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: 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.
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.
