Summary: I bought this motherboard because it got good reviews. Upon installing it, it wouldn't POST, no video, no audio, none of the USB's had power and so on. So I bought another one thinking that maybe it was defective and this one did the exact same thing!
Summary: Pros: Bought this MB b/c of the IDE port as a way to save the old but working IDE drives. XP (32bit) was installed on a SSD and boot time was very fast. All drives (1 SSD, 2 IDEs, and DVD) were recognized initially in Windows and I was able to copy some files over to the SSD.
Summary: This board has proven itself to be a stable platform since May 2011 when I purchased it. System assembly went smoothly, and bios setup was straightforward. An interesting surprise has been the Wake-on-LAN feature. I regularly log into this machine remotely to start a processing job.
Summary: I got the motherboard, installation was easy, its a fairly good product. Unfortunately, I had problems with random crashes. I was able to solve those by updating my drivers on ASUS's website. Others have had similar issues.
Summary: I purchased this mobo from another online retailer but wanted to give it some praise here. For the price, this mobo is pretty amazing. ASUS packs a lot of features into this micro ATX board, including USB 3.0, 4 memory slots, Crossfire/SLI capability, HDMI for the iGPU, and more.
Summary: Be careful about Intel video drivers. Intel has definitely not matured compared to AMD in bringing stable drivers to the market. If you update the video drivers to the latest release from Intel, your system will crash (BSOD) if using HDMI - guaranteed!!!
