It does the job. No USB 3.0 headers though. I basically blindly grabbed it off the shelf at frys because I was so fed up with my previous MOBO.
This is a cheap board that gets the job done, what more can I say? My only recommendation is that anyone considering getting this board not overclock their CPU Like I did
GREAT COMES WITH UPDATED BIOS OUT OF BOX
Very good and stable mobo; first time I put it in the case I accidentally forgot the spacers and upon booting it, it kept running, in fact it didn't even give off a warning nor was it in any way damaged from the short it experienced. Been running nice and stable for the last year and despite the various BIOS updates and modifications I experimented with, it worked through without a hitch.
Software included for it is stellar for its price (which was ~90 when I bought it a year ago).
The reason I gave it 4 stars is the fact that there are only two rear USB 3.0 ports and it doesn't have a slot for USB 3.0 expansion.
Great motherboard for the price I got it at, lots of great features from Asus, Just wish it wasn't soo many blues, although that might be changing ;D
This motherboard is great for everything, but it has no PCI and the fan pins are centrally located. And don't expect to get your rebate any time soon, i never got mine.
Used for a while, not great for overclocking but still holds up to this day.
Only 1 4-PIN for the CPU and not much cooling on the board. Definitely leaving the CPU stock. Otherwise, quality is good.
