Summary: I bought this motherboard based upon its excellent price vs performance as well as the good reviews that I read about it. I also went to Asus as it is a brand that I have trusted for a long time. Fresh out of the box, the 6GB Sata channel #1 does not work. I swapped the cables with the other working sata channels, used different drives and flashed the bios but with no success.
Summary: This thing wrecks my old mobo. I upgraded from a socket 775 EVGA mobo to this beast and I can not be more satisfied. VERY durable, I bent and scraped this thing a lot while installing it in my case and have had no complications so far. Highly recommend.
Summary: I got this board to build a cheap gaming box for fun. Since it was my first PC build, I went by recommendations by others. The first board I got shipped with a single dead DIMM slot so I was at a loss when I could not boot. After a little head scratching, I moved the RAM around to isolate the issue. A return was made and new board was shipped and ran like a top right out of the box. The fans are a bit loud too - but part of that is case design.
Summary: I fried my previous motherboard (by doing something stupid that won't be mentioned here), and got this as a replacement. Installation was pretty simple, minus the metal faceplate for the back side components. The BIOS is a next gen bios with an actual GUI so customization & setup is very simple. Granted, it recognized a USB drive with no boot as being the boot drive, but that was a simple fix with their new BIOS.
Summary: This motherboard works wonders. It has everything and quality, lacked only the Wifi. ------------------- Este motherboard funciona de maravillas. Tiene de todo y calidad, sólo les faltó el Wifi.
Summary: I bought this board to replace a different ASUS board that I had since that one had only 2 RAM slots and only 1 PCIx16 and I wanted 2 graphics cards. Setup worked well enough. No problems so far.
Summary: As usual Asus has designed a trouble free motherboard. This made it easy to build a pretty sophisticated computer with no issues. I just love these guys. Nice product and nice software to support the motherboard.
