My review

ordered this motherboard 5,6 days ago,got it yesterday.
installation goes pretty well.i had phenom x2 550.
pros:- am3+ (supports all old as well as upcoming amd processors)
-usb 3.0? (future of usb)
-heatsink between input/output ports and socket( provides efficient cooling)
-an epic bios (help overclocking and unlocking)
-supports 4,5 fans( more cooling)
-supports crossfirex setup (future of gfx cards?)
-supports HD audio and 6.1 systems.
-supports 32 gb dual channel ddr3 ram.

-no integrated gfx card( no vga port).
so you need to install extra graphics card.
(i dont think this is really a con. its designed for gamers and 3d designers who need future proof pc in low price range.)

if you want to design a gaming rig with amd processor,simply buy it now and dont forget to thump up my review if it helps

-thanks and regards

Superb mobo

This one is a superb motherboard. The UEFI BIOS and the features like mouse controlled BIOS tweaking makes this an ideal mobo for the price. I was really searching for the "EVO" or "PRO" version of this mobo which has some extra ports and some extras, since those are not available here in flipkart I went for this one.

-Asus AI Suite has features like FanXpert which lets you adjust the fan speed according to your taste
-TurboVevo overclocks the configuration without any effort from the user withot losing stability. (My 1075t went 3.5Ghz and memory timings were decreased)
-2xUSB 3.0
-6xUSB2.0( You will never run out of ports :D)
-Optical audio(I don't have one) and upto 7.1 speakers(I have 2.1)
-CrossfireX(The black one is x4 PCIe in the size of x16, so you can't SLI with this)
-Supports FX series processors.(BTW FX series processors don't perform so well. So stick with a phenom for now and pair it with a FX 2nd gen when it arrives.)
-Upto 32GB 1866Mhz RAM.(I got 8GB)
-No itegrated GPU( Yes It's a pro. Reason to buy a good GPU :D . I got a radeon 6850)

Nice Motherboard.

Okay let me come straight to the point. I know that this board is packed with lots of good/amazing features. I'll keep it short and precise.

> Please consider buying a bigger cabinet if you want to use this motherboard. You may face difficulty setting it up. But I'm sure if you're an expert you'll be able to handle it.

> No Vga/DVI/HDMI port available on this board. So make sure to keep an extra graphics card available in case of video related troubleshooting

> I wish there was a crossfire bridge included with the motherboard.

> GUI Bios setup is really awesome, the best I've ever seen.

> ASUS AI Suite II is one of the best utility included.

Overall I'm very satisfied with the motherboard. A very good Motherboard indeed !!!

Feature rich, spacious and overclocking friendly

I am using this motherboard with AMD FX 6300 CPU & Cooler Master Hyper 212X CPU fan. This is my full PC configuration for reference

This motherboard supports automatic power and clock speed regulation which decreases power usage when you are doing lightweight work and increase CPU performance to full speed when you are playing games or converting a video.

The onboard audio is very good for headphones as it comes with headphone amplifier for both rear and front audio connector. Asus gives a feature called Noise Filter which reduces electrical noise in connected speakers/headphones. You won't hear any static sound when you are not playing anything.

There is enough space in this motherboard around CPU socket to fit either a water cooling kit or a 120 MM CPU fan.

It also comes with 4 USB 3.0 ports. 2 are at the rear of the motherboard which I believe people will hardly go for. 2 are given onboard so you can connect a front panel USB 3.0 port usually given in new CPU cabinets. This motherboard supports USB attached SCSI protocol for USB 3.0 ports which boosts the read and write speed of connected USB 3.0 storage devices by 50% for real. However, this is only applicable to storage devices and other devices like mouse controller etc don't benefit. Well, they don't even need to.

It also supports AMD Crossfire X so you can install two GPUs easily. There is a lot of space between the two PCIe X16 slots so GPUs with dual slot cooling system will also fit easily.

Overall, this is a very balanced motherboard and deserve the price tag. You won't miss anything with this for next 2 3 years.

ABOUT 5000 n above mobo's

first i read the customers reviews of this board.
This board is meant to run dual AMD RADEON graphic cards in crossfire X.
If u r having only a single HD 7770 or 7850 with a dual phenom X2 550 3.4GHz dual core.
what's the point of buying this above 5000 bucks board if u r running a dual core with a mid range gpu.
it's recommended to use phenom 2 X4 quadcore with 3.2Ghz with crossfire enabled cards like dual 7770's or 6850's for media and content creation,professional gaming.
if u got only a single mid range gpu with 4 to 8Gb of ram n dual core phenom 2 processor it is better to stay with current AMD 780G chipset based mobo which supports up to 16GB no one really uses more than 8Gb unless if it is a workstation pc
Because even after buying the board it takes 1 to 1.5 year of time to turn in to a crossfire build by buying the same gpu n a good psu n the problem really starts when it is finaaly time to update the current thing crossfire enabled rig with more ram the mobo fails n some of the ram slots wont work giving frustration n big irritation
i faced this problem a had M2N-SLI mobo paired with X2 6000+3.1Ghz dual core i has a good 8800GT n i wanted to buy another 8800GT for a solid gaming rig.the mobo started to freeze n hanged a lot n finally it resulted to southbridge n northbridge failed making the mobo uselss.
now i m stuck with the same cpu n gpu n a AMD 680G based mobo which i bought in 2010.
Better buy everything at the start not to wait until the running hardaware get failed or simply buy a fast cpu with more ram n single gpu mobo with good midrange gpu.
AMD FX 6300 with gigabyte GA760G mobo with 8 gb of ram n a good HD7770
