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.
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.
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.
Replaced another manufacturer and this thing works beautifully.

Summary: Wow, what a nice change from another brand. I had been using the same brand for years. However, on the two motherboards I bought from them for 8 core processors, the old brand was just not stable.
Summary: So far nothing but good with this board. Fired up perfectly on the first try. Everything works like it's supposed to (knock on wood) and I didn't have to make any changes to get things running.
Summary: The TPU switch is a great idea! The problem was, it underclocked my ram a bit, so I just went into the BIOS and bumped it back up, and the computer absolutely flies. It is a smart motherboard with tons of features. The AI suite software is nice, but it's a bit amateur looking.
Summary: This is my first ASUS motherboard and from what I have read is either you get a great motherboard or a terrible motherboard when you buy an ASUS. I have been fortunate in my builds when it comes to motherboards. It is better than my Asrock motherboard that had in my last build.
