Reviews

Good motherboard for the price, my only issues are that the I/O shield was a nuisance and that the width is only 9 inches, so it doesn't reach the third set of mounts.

Decent, no complaints Asus board highly rated. However, not the best for OCing and I wish I would have gone with the 990 socket and thought more about overclocking. Then again when we built this I had no idea about OCing we have learned a lot.

Could not install win 7 and not a fan of the blue heat sinks
