Nicholas, Ipswich, Suffolk Regular PC builder.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This motherboard was easy to set up, although you will need a selection of case screws including the brass ones that you actually attach the board to as they are not included. Everything on the board is easily connected due to it's well designed layout, so I built this pc pretty quickly. The Asus BIOS has mouse support and is very easy to set up and use, even for first or second time builders. This board supports a CPU up to 140W so was perfect for the AMD FX-8 CPU I installed, which requires 125W. So other than not having the included case screws (which regular PC Builders will have lying around, but many others will not), this motherboard is excellent value for money for anyone building an AM3/AM3+ system.
Bad points:
The lack of certain screws in the box may make this motherboard difficult for some builders to install hence 9/10, otherwise I would have marked this motherboard 10/10.

Andy, Stoke on Trent Retired Professional IT Reviewer/Researcher

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Asus yet again provides an excellent board for my standby ailing PC with loads of features. This PC was a standby for my ASUS Sabertooth MoBo PC and its as fast as that.
Bad points:
No IDE controller so I could use my existing DVD Writer, but a SATA one only cost me £11 so not a really bad missing feature.

Nick, Wales Over40 Male IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Handles many memory speeds - Just need to go into BIOS and set the speed to match your RAM, then it remembers it from then on in.
Handles 8-Core CPUs.
4 Memory slots
3 Fan + 1 CPU FAN outlets
Plenty of SATA-600 connections (comes with 2 SATA leads)
Driver DVD was simple to use to get the GigaBit LAN driver, Audio and USB3 running
Components plugged in and it just worked.
Graphical BIOS with temperatures and fan RPMs (plus Advanced BIOS display)
Bad points:
No IDE connector (fairly typical of AM3+ boards)
SATA connectors easily end up under full drive bays
No screws or fixing poles supplied
