I love is MOBO its fast, its powerful it has USB 3.0 AND it has duel booting bios so you can have 2 diff settings upon booting without having to re set everything every time, along with individual core activation
The Motherboard is just awesome. Safe mechanisms of protection are amazing, besides the technology for extreme overclock to unleash the power of the peripherals at gaming or graphic activities.
Also have a nice quality of design and workmanship.
Congrats to Asus!
g'day from downunder .... lol always love to say that.
why you asked did i buy this board ... well lets see ... my last board i was playing with was a little to slow.. and i needed a update. as this board was one the latest out there, running an a55 chipset(fm1) .. that mean i can run upto 4 cores cpu... in mine i put in a 3 core, and its fast. the onboard graphic wasn't to bad ... running aradeon hd 6000 series. the frame rate was ok but remember your using the memory here. i later updated to a radion hd 7000 series (pci-e 3) , as the board is a pci-e 2.1 the graphic card still run pretty fast. the audio well i was over the moon with this , no break ups and nice and sharp. memory - well in window 7 64 bit , with out the bios update you can juice it to 32g but with a windows friendly update to the bios 64g can be put in ,using the 4 dimm sockets , oh forgot the speed lol well i'm running with 10 g of 1333 ddr3 sticks and it run fast to my liking. it states it can use up to maximum of 64g unbuffered non ecc ddr3 2250 stick ... man i love to get my hands on those. i did find the usb ports nice placed... but the sata 3 ports are at the front of the board , in a small desktop you need to take both sides of and feed the cables threw.there isn't much space to move around as cables start to get in the way. if you got the time , its worth it. now when first boot up the bios will need to be set(drives mostly) . its straight forward , very easy to understand. for the price i say this is a very good board to play with ... just need to boast the graphic up and it would be a fast little beast ... as i have only updated mine a little and still more to ... i'm very happy with the speed i get when pushing it to the max with video editing.
