Summary: Im not going to go into detail about this MOBO. Ill only say that it has worked GREAT for what I need it for. Average gaming and web surfing, with some digital art work, including photography and video. I am using an i3 2100 and 8GB of RAM. This MOBO has served me well for over a year now. Did I mention I purchased it at Micro Center for $79 with a mail in $15 rebate? It was an open box special. So I paid less than $65 for this MOBO.
Summary: I have purchased this motherboard for a computer build as part of my business. After installation, this board is working well and it's full of many user-friendly features. Thanks to Asus, i'm a huge fan and still growing!
Summary: its a very good mother for gaming runs parity good and flawless and so far i don't have any problems with it also it was easy to install in the tower and also easy to setup very simple in short words.
Summary: Even though the Ivy Bridge CPUs and Z77 boards were available when I made my purchase, I went with this and a Sandy Bridge i5 CPU. This board met my current needs and has the expansion options that will make this computer last for years. All of the memory slots worked when tested with some 2GB sticks that weren't on the compatible memory list. It also works with a compatible 8GB stick.
Summary: Great mobo, awesome BIOs interface, Love it! I have this piece on my powerhouse computer. Awesome buy for the price. I rather use this mobo than other's that cost 200$. As always Asus is number 1 for a reason.
Summary: I was a little disapointed not an extreme motherboard, also disapointed there were usb3 ports on the back but no header for external ports. also my memory was not recognised for its speed and was downgraded to 1333 from 1600 (not listed on the comatability chart)
