Summary: In just a few months I will have had this motherboard for 2 years without a single problem. I really like ASUS the last 10-15 years or so and the products they release. This motherboard has worked great since day 1 and continues to work great and hopefully for many more years! Half of my PC is built from asus and all of their products have worked great. Installation was easy and I really like the bios with mouse ability, makes things much faster.
Summary: I purchased this board in January of 2012. I installed an Icore7 2600 3.4 Ghz Intel Chip and 16gb of memory. I did find that it is best "urgent" to use a fluid cooled system on the chip. This machine is fast and flawless. There are multiple adjustments and tweaks to make this machine run just about any combination of drives, speeds and performance one could hope for. I am retired and usually have the machine on 24/7 at least for a good portion of the time.
Summary: I love this board, it has been a wonderful experience with my i7-2600K processor, 32 gb RAM, Corsair H100, 2 DVD drives, solid state drive and a regular drive, along with a Dell U2412M monitor. The onboard video chip is more than enough for what I use my computer for. I don't game, but do a lot of audio recording, a ton of multi-tasking, watching videos, using photoshop and working with my digital pictures, and maintaining a website.
Summary: Delivered on time and in perfect condition. The installation manual is clearly presented with the connections properly illustrated. First-time builders would do well to watch some video presentations on the Web to gain a sense of confidence before forging ahead. But building a computer is not a dark science.
Summary: What I like: Good layout, plenty of usb/sata connections, easy to navigate bios, trouble free 1st boot. What I didn't like: Nothing to report here about the motherboard, all good. The way Amazon shipped it to me is another story... it was thrown in a larger box with minimal packing, and the mobo box was smashing around in there with an Intel CPU box during shipping..
