I was impressed but this board for its sheer performance even with a lower end 965 black. It made that processor run like the day i bought it. It was out performing 6 core systems i had on the desk. Hooked it up with 8 core and its smoking. This board can handle a lot and it handles it with ease. The company was awesomely fast and it arrived in mint condition although the box needed a bit of work. I would recommend this board to everyone wanting to move into the 8 core category. If this thing can take the beating i give it at what i do it will certainly do well for you. Just so you know I'm a meteorologist and a atmospheric phenomena specialist. I study stuff that will eat a computer alive and this board rocks it like yesterdays news. Never breaks a sweat and was very easy to setup which i found a bit odd normally something gives me grief but this one did not. Buy it, use it and love it.

I am a small computer retailer and have been assembling computers for sale since 1991, the first one was a 386. I have used many manufacture's over the years and settled on using the AMD CPU and the ASUS components. I specifically searched for an AMD ASUS Motherboard for a personal replacement of my primary computer, a ASUS M4A785-M that I purchased from Amazon in Jan 2011 Running XP64, and it is still doing a great job, but, It is time to move up. this MB being the same series really appealed to me and I purchased it along with a AMD FX6300, Corsair CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80, Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB Hard drive, Kingston Hyper X Blu 8 GB (2x4GB Modules) 1600MHz DDR3 Memory - KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX, Zalman CPU Cooler CNPS5X PERFORMA (I did need to file the heat sink surface a little), and LG Electronics 24X SATA Super-Multi DVD, All purchased from AMAZON. The components are now assembled and operating flawlessly. Many times I have purchased components at different online outlets and purchased memory or another component that did not work out as well a I wanted. I can purchase from several wholesalers, but just because they are wholesalers does not mean there prices are the best. These components worked extremely well, so well, that I purchased another complete set for a client and he is an IT professional.

So far, so good. Just built my rig and this mobo is doing great. Windows 8.1 basically recognized all components. I went to ASUS website and updated all drivers that were available. Everything works on this mobo so far. You can see my specs that i'm running with this, It's a mid-tier build and runs amazingly. I have a FX6300 overclocked to a 4.0 easily. BUT don't get this mobo if you want to do serious overclocking, the VRM is 4+1 which is weak for overclocking and the VRM's will heat up fast and throttle your overclock back.

AMD FX6300, 8GB GSkill Ripjaws X Series 1600 RAM, ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3, PNY GTX 560 Ti 1GB, 120GB Kingston Hyper X SSD, APEX PC-389-C Case, Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Got this to replace a gigabyte motherboard that a faulty video card fried. I shouldve bought this in the first place. Going from a GA-78LMT-USB3 to this was actually a great change. I like both brands...but having a high end Asus board in my main comp...this was a nice change...even though i had to rebuild my system from ground up to replace the fried board.
The power button overclock is a nice feature (im using an 8320 on this board.) No more trying to use software to overclock or trying to adjust in bios....just make your OC selection ( fast..faster...or top speed) and thats it. Push your power button and its like the old school turbo buttons of days past to get the extra power or to turn it off. Way easier way to OC and to turn off when u want to take it easy on your CPU. Board went in flawlessly and runs great...like all Asus boards ive used in past. Usb 3.0 on back and a front header...sata 3.0 is plenty if youre not using an SSD. Even if you are...3.0 is plenty though. Im very happy with this board...features and style.
Fyi...this is in an HTPC/backup lower end gaming rig...16 gb of ram(4x4) and a gtx 650ti i had to go back to since the 970 i bought was DOA) i literally just swapped the parts, rebooted, loaded asus disc software, and it worked like nothing (windows needed keys verified again) and that was it. Runs smooth. Im definately buying this board again for budget micro atx builds in future. I hope asus utilizes some of this board's features in future boards. I cant say enough about how cool the push button OC feature is after having to mess with software OC options only for so long..or buy sepate case hardware to mimic. Buy this board if youre on the fence about it. P.S.....blue hardware looks good with blue led case fans.

I was a little concerned with purchasing this motherboard because there are not a lot of great reviews but I'm happy to report my experience has been excellent so far. In fact in the last 4 years this was the smoothest/easiest mobo I've set up. Memory ran at the correct speed even at default. Overclocked it to 230 FSB with 2300Mhz hypertransport/NB - no problem and no voltage changes. Honestly a real nice board and with USB 3.0 & HDMI at this price. The only thing it doesn't have is 6GB/s SATA which if you don't have an SSD, I doubt you'll notice. DDR3 1600 is capable through normal RAM multiplier and not an overclock freq as stated in description, in fact it ran 1600 at default settings with my 1600 HyperX RAM. No problems with a PS/2 keyboard that I can tell but I did update to the latest bios (1801) before I installed the OS.

Another note is that Asus was running a rebate on this board but Amazon didn't show a link to it. I ended up getting $10 back, so do your research. Awesome price with the rebate!
