Summary: Used this in a build with a I5 2500 K processor, Komputerbay GB memory and a Munchkin Cronos SSD. Computer build was simple. I just connected everything and was able to install OS from a pen drive ... no problems. BIOS screen is simple and easy. Has a lot of features that I wouldn't use ... YET. But some that I do like ... it warns me when my fan speeds get too low i.e. protects the CPU.
Summary: Even though my first board came in dead, this is truly a great board. Amazon was quick to take care of the dead board and got me a replacement shipment asap. Pros: UEFI Bios is amazing. I love this. Makes everything soo much easier. OC is easy peasy now. Just set performance to high and change you multiplier. My 2500k is now hitting 4.5ghz. Fast and Stable.
ASUS saved me 220 dollars within 2 hours of owning it.

Summary: It was time to rebuild my computer. I got this Asus mobo, and an intel i5-2500k. I had no idea it was the best decision of my rig rebuild. My only real knock is that the mobo seems a bit cramped. I placed the i5 in my Asus mobo, and then tried to put on my big, 90% copper, monster sized heat sync. The heat sync didnt fit, she was just too big for the board, so I gave the stock heat sync a chance.
Summary: I like this motherboard, I don't have any complaints but then again I don't over clock my 2600k. However you have to set you ram for what you want it to run at, but I am sure you would know that if you were building a computer. If you don't know just a heads up, its really easy to do as well. The bios on ASUS is great as always, practically idiot proof.
Summary: This motherboard works great, it have all I need, to watch videos, movies,it give me good quality video even without a dedicated video card. Good product for my purpose and thanks Amazon, you have a great service.
Summary: After getting a bad board from a brand I had never tried, I went and got this. The reviews on other sites are showing great things about this board as long as you are not doing crazy overclocking. Well seeing that this was going to be on a budget build for running labs in VMware, it had absolutely all the features I was looking for, with even more than will be needed. Do your research on this.
Summary: Make sure you goto asus.com & read the (QVL) quailified vendors list to find out what memory this board supports. I had purchased Corsair Vengeance Blu 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B, as this MB supports DDR 3 1600MHz ram, my other build board ASUS P8P67 LE (bought in Sept) has this same model ram in it & I lived the way it worked, but this board will not post with this model of RAM.
Summary: I payed for a new board but when I got it, it was already opened. The warnig seal on the cpu wasn't there nor the warning seal on the electrical bag covering the motherboard. I don't want to pay full price for a use board. Returned it and will be going to a local fry' to buy a BRAND NEW board. Not recommended to buy this board online. I've been buying asus motherboard for the last ten years. I'm sure I know how a brand new board looks like.
