Reviews

from completed build BARRACUDA

Extremely stable, lots of good features. I really like the UEFI design and how well it integrates with their software you can download to mess with it within windows. I think from now on, ASUS is my goto motherboard manufacturer. Overclocking beast!

from completed build AMD FX 9590 gaming build

Nothing to say really, the colors are a bit unusual but it does its job and thats what matters! Its not exceptional but it is certainly not a bad motherboard.

from completed build White Ice

Solid motherboard, a little confusing for first time builders.

from completed build Mid Level Budget Gaming Build

An absolute breeze to build with, this motherboard not only looks good, but feels good to work with as well. The UEFI BIOS just makes everything that much easier, there are several little bells and whistles included that make things go smooth (e.g. two included 90 degree Serial ATA cables, a guide piece for the front panel I/O connectors) and the user manual is clear, concise and thorough. By far the best motherboard for the price I have ever owned.

I love the look of this motherboard! Easy setup and lots of nerdy features included...exactly the kind of mid level motherboard I wanted.

from completed build Blue Faded Phantom

Great motherboard with a ton of useful features (even though I haven't used them). Very straight-forward and user friendly BIOS settings.

from completed build Heiselt custom rig

I'm impressed. You get so much for the money. The bios rocks.

from completed build 14 Year Old's First Build

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this motherboard. Has a great color scheme for my build, has tons of room for ram and enough space for some after market fans not to get in the way. Great choice!

from completed build Blue Nights -_-

Fully Loaded with Features EZ bios glad I trusted ASUS yet again.

from completed build Vault Dweller's Home

I'm no expert when it comes to the specifics of motherboards but as far as I can tell, this is definitely worth the money. The BIOS is very clean and organized, easy to understand. However, for a first time builder the overall layout of the motherboard is a bit confusing and it doesn't label a lot of the parts but I may just be incompetent.

I would give this 5 stars due to performance but I did have a problem straight out of the box in which the sound card on the mobo wasn't recognizing the drivers. Very annoying but Asus customer service was very helpful in getting that problem resolved.

All in all, great buy, very much worth the money.
