    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.

    Pros:-
    -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...

    A good motherprice at a good price.

    This motherboard from ASUS is the entry level motherboard in the 900 series chipset category. It supports all of the new AMD bulldozer processors, supports crossfire, has a new GUI based BIOS,etc. If you are looking for a good gaming motherboard with a decent price, this one is the answer. Also, you will need to have a graphics card, as this one does not have any. Finally, a good deal from Flipkart.

    the images provided are wrong

    the box is of the m5a97 r2.0 version where the motherboard in the pic is not a r2.0 version.
    the r2.0 version has front panel usb3.0 (usb3.0 internal header )support.
    R2 version is the best budget gaming motherboard.

    Excellent motherboard!!

    This is an amazing motherboard with lot of options in bios as well as on-board (LED checks).

    The only doubt I had was if it will work with "AMD 3.5 GHz FX 8320 8 Core Processor Black Edition", since most reviews I read pointed out that it draws lot of power and it goes for a toast with the stock fan provided.

    It works like a breeze with with the stock fan that comes with it - please note that I am not an over-clocker (not yet, may be in future if the rig feels slow).

    I've a 500W SMPS and i...

    The BEST Mobo for AMD FX

    Im a gamer. I bought AMD FX 8350 8cores. And I purchased this motherboard. Specially for playing Battlefield 4.

    This mobo runs perfect, great ventilation and good space. Even my AMD HD6870 fits perfect. This comes with 3 USB3 ports and 6 normal USB ports.

    Mobo has UEFI BIOS, easy to update too.

    Gr8 Mother for my gaming PC....

    The Asus M5A97 is a gr8 motherboard with the latest features (like usb 3.0 and UEFI bios). Its a gr8 motherboard if you are looking for a good ATX motherboard for Phenom, Atlon and FX series processor.

    Pros:-
    1) Great heat-sinks around the socket
    2) Dual channel Memory support (very common now-a-days)
    3) USB 3.0 (no inbuilt header but at the IO panel)
    4) CrossFireX Support.
    5) Supports 1st gen FX processor and will also support the 2nd gen.

    Cons:-
    none

    ASUS M5A97 Product review

    A very good product from ASUS. The motherboard comes with a AMD 9-series chipset, with which I used a Radeon HD 6750 2GB DDR3 card, with a AMD Phenom II X6 1090t processor(with WEI of 7.5), coupled with 8GB DDR3 @1333MHz. This motherboard, when combined with any good 6000-series, or 5000-series Radeon graphics card, gives outstanding performance.
    Overall, a very good buy.

    5/5
