Summary: its been a while since i built a machine. the boards have moved on at a tremendous pace in their design. I now am looking for display port products and upgrading my own vista based system, its archaic. This is a really good board packed with features and built for a friend. He is living in the dark ages with his pentium d cpu etc. Arrived safely, good packaging and great product.
Summary: I bought this motherboard for my HTPC build with the following components: Case: Silverstone Grandia GD08 CPU: Intel i7 3770 RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix (2x4GB modules) SSD O/S drive: Samsung 840 Evo 250GB HDD data drive: WD Caviar Green 2TB O/S: Windows Home Premium 64-bit Optical drive: Pioneer BDR-208DBK Blu-ray/DVD/CD Combo RW PSU: Corsair Builder Series CXM 500W I did quite a bit of research on makes and feature sets before settling on this one.
Summary: Practically perfect in every way. Compact, efficient, stable, fast, reliable. It is now at the heart of by far the best computer system I have ever had. And I have had many, going right back to a Commodore PET. I am especially enamoured of the GUI BIOS. I never thought I would see the day when I would be using a mouse in the BIOS settings! I cannot fault this motherboard it in any way.
Summary: The Board its self is very well made as with most Asus products, didn't like the arrangement of the S-ATA ports to begin with but it worked out rather good in the PC case I was putting it in, comes with all the cables you need though mine didn't come with the Asus power Q-Connector adapter for the system panel.
Summary: I received this motherboard in good time. i installed it with 2x8 gig memory and everything was ok. then I installed an extra 16 gig memory (2x8s) identical to my first 16gig. after extensive checking I found the 2 dims on the board were faulty. amazon refunded me very quickly and I purchased another model which works fine.
Board works fine but is let down by Marvell controller for 6Gb eSATA

Summary: Everything on the board works except the Marvell 88SE91xx controller which controls an internal 6Gb SATA connector and an external 6Gb port. I can't get the eSATA port to work at all under Windows 7 and on connecting the internal SATA port to an HDD, results in waiting a couple of minutes while the controller initialises... on boot-up and still no device is seen in Windows 7.
Summary: This is a great board for smaller computers that don't need to overclock. There are plenty of SATA and USB ports so internal and external storage isn't a problem, and there are two full-length PCIe slots for graphics cards. Recommended for entry-level gaming and NAS builds.
Summary: solid build quality, good for gaming and another multitasking processes . low budget gamers should buy this , micro atx form factor is as good as asus maximus v gene motherboard, I strongly recommand this PRODUCT buying this ur system will be future proofed for 5 years. GO FOR IT GUYS !!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I wanted a Socket 1155 for my new Intel Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU (4 x 3.40GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 6Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) It had to be MicroATX or uATX in size, I didn't want to buy a bigger Case and why would I, I have nice shiny Black Asus case with a good PSU?
Summary: +Top verarbeitung +Top Leistung +Top Preis +Keine veraltete PCI steckplätze, nur PCIe +SATA Kabel mit dabei -SATA Ports sind nicht nach oben gerichtet (etwas fummel aber macht man normal nur ein mal)
