Summary: PCI Slots just stopped working a few months after the warranty ended. I will give ASUS one more shot by buying another MB from them. I hope this next one will last more than just 3 years. If not I will switch companies.

Cons: Died a few months after the warranty expired. PCI slots stopped working.
Summary: Love Asus, not sure what to do about getting some modern day graphics in here until anything else is worth upgrading.
Pros: This board was unprecedented at the time, and provided me a stable platform for a long time. I write this review for people buying elsewhere since its out of stock and not made anymore

Pros: First of all I've had this motherboard for awhile and given some of the bad reviews I attempted to give it a shot anyways. This was my first Asus product and I can honestly say it was well worth it. I bios flashed it for a 3rd gen i5 and it's working great with no problems to date.
Cons: Only con I can see is that it is a little outdated now with the new processors out and software drivers had a slight issue with iGPU voltage reading
