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.
Summary: I enjoy Asus brand quite a bit. Though this is the 1st time out of all my builds I have every had any issue with there boards. The sound has just stopped working on the board and I have noticed a scratch on the board and fallowed it. Yup you guessed it, went strait to the sound chip.
Summary: Great board. No real issues to setup. I took off one egg for the 8pin Power supply location and the lack of SATA cables. All in all this is a great board and the manual was very helpful in setting it up. I would recommend this to anyone.
Pros: Lots of USB support. Lots of SATA. Nice Bios, takes a little getting used to but after a while you're flying through pages. Quality board. Not real fancy but still has a lot of features for a $120 board. Clear and helpful Manual.
Cons: ATX power supply connection is in a horrible place. Very hard to connect the 8 pin power cable with an aftermarket CPU cooler installed. Board only came with 2 SATA connectors. This isn't a Deluxe or Pro package but It would have been nice to see a couple more SATA connectors. Setting up Raid was...
Pros: This is an excellent motherboard. I love the UFEI BIOS, although I'm very comfortable in the old non graphical BIOSs. Works great, easy to install, fits in nicely with my NZXT Phantom 410. Looks really nice.
Pros: This board has a ton of features at its current price point. While I'm a gamer I don't need all the bells and whistles of some of the higher end boards as I don't really need to overclock everything to get the level of performance I want. love the uefi bios graphic interface, makes tweaking setti...
Cons: doesn't support SLI, however I knew that when I bought it. The pins to screw the board into place leave the right side very bendable and it flexed a lot when I was putting it in the case which had me a bit nervous. The layout of the sata ports is a bit funky, I would have liked to have seen them ...
Pros: Cheap, well made and works just fine. Lots of features for a competitive price.
Cons: Did not come with a drivers CD, couldn't connect to the internet using a wired connection without them. Thankfully I have a USB Wireless adaptor for just an occasion which happens to be plug and play.
Pros: Z68, SATA III, EASY UEFI, great for mid range computer
Cons: As others have said the size is a little weird, there are no supports for the board on the side farthest away from the I/O panel, so be careful when installing as that is where the RAM and power connector for the board are
