Summary: This is my first build and so I was a little nervous about it all. But it was so easy. I put everything together and powered it up and it ran perfectly. I had called ASUS before I started putting it together and asked a bit of advice. I had heard that often times the memory is not recognized.
Summary: Using this highly rated and one of the best selling X58-based motherboards for my SOHO workstation+server. This is what I would expect from a good motherboard. Layout is good and also it performs very well with passive cooling on the board itself. The Gigabyte comes close at more expensive price.
Summary: I've purchased this motherboard over a Foxconn Flamingblade GTI. Pros: Detected all of my components without a problem. Ran very well with a 920 (D0), and is running now with a 930 very easily (idle temps lower 30's C).
Summary: I am not a newbie to computers at all, but I am a newbie to building them myself. Having said that, this board it terrific, but there are a few things about it that I wish I had known before I purchased.
Summary: ASUS has been the brand of my last four motherboard upgrades. The boards have always performed to the specs of the technology of their time, and this board is no exception (probably why I keep coming back to ASUS). Bottom line...I am extremely satisfied with it.
Summary: Best written instruction manual of anything I have ever bought. This was my first computer build and it went flawlessly thanks mostly to the excellent directions supplied with this board. The 6 gbps SATA ports are very fast. and the USB 3.0 is sweet.
Summary: Motherboard installed for the most part without any issues although it is sensitive to memory types. First memory type I bought that was in the ASUS certified list did not work. I installed 6GB and it would sometimes only showed 4GB and after checking around in the forums found this to be a common...
Summary: a couple weeks now, no problem. it's easy to do overclocking with cool features. it supports two internet wire bridging but it doesn't make much difference on my computer. overall, recommended.
