Summary: I would go with other brands if you wanted something low end. ASUS is good for premium models only.
Pros: Reputable brand, but that's about it.
Cons: It is really finicky with memory. Can't use memory rated for 1600MHz at its rating. BIOS reverts to 1333MHz and keeps saying "Overclocking failed". It's not Overclocking if I'm just trying to run it at its rated speed.
Summary: In my honest opinion, this is an absolutely great motherboard. It is cheaply priced and has everything that you could need on it for even basic gaming. I run Guild Wars 2, Path of Exile, and Diablo III flawlessly using this motherboard in conjunction with the other parts listed above.
Pros: I'm a Network Administrator, and I am around computers all day everyday. This little guy is a great motherboard. ASUS always makes exceptional products, and this is no exception. I have had this for over two months now with no problems whatsoever. The reason I bought it was because I needed a gre...
Cons: The downsides to this motherboard are very trivial, and they are to be expected if you actually look at what you are buying. There are very minimal expansion slots, and if you are using a decent graphics card then do not expect to use any of the other slots. My graphics card (EVGA GeForce GTX550 ...
Summary: I had problems with ASUS motherboards in the past. A while ago I stopped buying them altogether. This time I decided to give it a try just because it matched perfectly my search parameters. Sorry, but never ASUS again. As a cherry on the top, two days ago my ASUS monitor went blank.
Pros: Came on time and on the box reads ASUS as expected.
Cons: Everything else. Went blue screening on me right after I built it. Flashed to the latest BIOS, didn't help. Upgraded the firmware on my SSD, didn't help. Just gives me blue screen within a few minutes after turning on. Spoke to ASUS tech support, but they couldn't offer anything useful. Asked to ...
Summary: My buddy who does builds for work recommended this to me when I needed a new budget set up to do basic gaming. Only thing we ran into - my geforce 560gtx is so large, it prevents usage of top two sata plugs. So if you have a larger vid card, you might want to consider a different board.
Summary: I got this board to keep the family main power computer running while rma a gigabyte mb that has a known problem. while it may not have a lot of options it is rock solid. its now running a i7 2700k with 8g and 3t of space. When I get back my other mb going to put this in a box for my mom .
Pros: works very well booted the 1st time and no problems
Cons: can not use a lot of video cards in it. but you should know that about micro boards
Summary: I like this board. I usually keep a few in stock for lower end business class workstations. Don't expect this to be a great gaming board or CAD board. It's just a basic motherboard that's solid and reliable.
Pros: Price. ASUS reliability. Integrated VGA. UEFI BIOS. Gigabit NIC. 3rd gen core i series support OOTB. I use these boards for basic business workstations. I haven't had any issues with any of them. Purchased about 5 so far. All post w/ no issues, run cool.
Cons: No USB 3.0 port(s) but for the price, I guess that's forgivable. No SATA III ports. This is my biggest peave about this board. I'd love to be able to use a SATA III SSD w/ this board but when I do SSD builds, I have to use a different one.
