Great cost efficient main board.
By G. Shelton
Fired right up and runs like a champ. This was for a basic work station and is working as I had hoped. Love ASUS products. It does have a lack of slots for upgrading, but that was known before I ordered it. Using an Intel i3 and 8 gig of RAM.

I only use Asus motherboards for my builds, due to their reliability. This model was more than adequate for the build.

just happened to get one that wouldn't post
I mounted the board with memory and processor and it would light up (led on the board) all drives spin up but no post to video. Stripped everything off, just proc and memory (tried another known good memory and cpu) still no post. The board was easy to mount, just the Intel fan is not so good when trying to remove, it cracked where the pins go through to the board. Asus is a great brand but sometimes you will get a motherboard that won't post, doesn't mean I will never buy another Asus as I did and it is works great.
