Summary: It wasnt DOA and its SLI/Crossfire compatible, Sata 3, usb3 all for under $120. Not a bad deal at all. No problems at all from this board. IMO as long as everything works on it, its a good board. No feature or anything can really make it awesome but its definitely a good board. Id advise anyone building a system though to go with Radeon graphics card. I went with the gtx660 and kicking myself in the butt for it.
Summary: In the past, I have had good experiences with ASUS motherboards. They have served me well the last 10 years. I have build 25+ desktops and used ASUS in most of them. That shared, I tend to believe that I know how to assemble systems. Upon returning home, turned on desktop and nothing.. the CPU fan spins a little, then shuts down. Removed all peripherals and started trouble shooting...

Summary: Got this as a replacement for one of those faulty AMD 8 core pieces of crap. This one works great, and really is quite the trooper, gets the job done beautifully and it is reliable and well designed. All the ports are in easy to access areas that aren't obstructive to airflow.
