Summary: Replacement for a media center PC and am having much better luck with this mobo. Seems to wake the PC up every time I start up the 360. The over clocking works like a charm. 2 thumbs up. As well as there customer service. Prompt replys and seems very educated.
I am not sure if it is the motherboard or it is the cpu but it does not change the overheating problem I have.

Summary: There are not enough controls of temperature in the BIOS to correct the problem I have. I am still debating to recognize if this motherboard has been a good purchase or not, but it is the second of its model and brand I've bought and I am regretting it so far. I have to add that it is better to buy a sealed package, brand new and not offers like from this company that sells it without many of the accessories that this motherboard was supposed to come with.
Summary: Great Motherboard got it in three days with no problems. Works great got it to replace a motherboard in a HP just used the HP I7 chip with the memory the board in my HP caught fire but lucky didn’t damage the Chip or anything else. Have my I7 running fine with my memory at 1600. Great board if you need a 1156 socket but if you’re going for a new system get a better one 1156 are basically dead 2011 socket is a lot better for I7.
Summary: Item works as advertised, motherboard appears to be in good condition, included a backplate and drivers. My only concern / worry is that one of the memory slots may be bad, I have 2 4gb modules of crucial ballistics 1600mhz may be an incomparability with the memory. Either way I plugged the memory in the secondary slots and it works fine. So overall this is a good motherboard.
Summary: The seller has not warned of heavy customs duties for international shipment in Italy. I paid 39,98 EUR for shipping plus 36 EUR for customs duties. Maybe the seller was not aware of this. It 's the first time that I pay taxes like customs. Do not buy more from the United States.
Summary: I had one of this motherboards for over 3 years now for my gaming PC, can't complain. Performs like a champ with my i5-760 and 8GB of Patriot ram. The only upgrade I needed was to switch from HDD to SDD to reach it's full potential. Although its over 3 years old its still better then 80% of motherboards today. Will keep it for at list another year or 2.
Summary: I had another Asus motherboard with an 1156 CPU slot which died just outside of warranty, and I ordered a refurbished model as a replacement since I could not find any new ones with the same slot. It arrived quickly, I installed it, and everything worked great. It doesn't have all of the ports (USB and a second Ethernet port) on the back as the deluxe motherboard I had before, but it does have USB 3.0, which is preferable. Overall, I am very happy.
