Pros
small size
Cons
no usb 3
on board vga is weak
Summary
have had this motherboard for just over a year now, have had no issues with it. have not tried to do any overclocking with it.
Have the FX-6300 installed in it.

Pros
Asus made, price, reliability
Cons
None
Summary
Nice board, especially for the price these days. This will most likely outlast the rest of your PC components.

Pros
Small mobo with onboard graphics
Cons
No HDMI output
Summary
This is a great budget board for a solid budget build. You won't get any OC mileage out of it, but worth a good consideration for the casual user.

Pros
ASUS reputation for performance and reliability.
Cons
Not UEFI, no DVI, awful customer service.
Summary
I went for the most basic motherboard possible.

I intended to use integrated graphics, but I missed that there's no DVI out on this board. No UEFI either which I've developed an affinity for. Also, it only two memory slots. Not a big deal - for the price, I can't complain.

It seemed to be a reliable, good performing product. ASUS has a great reputation for reliability and performance.

HOWEVER. I used ASUS's own "ASUS Utility" to update  the BIOS. The utility, which is referenced and recommended in the manual, erased the old BIOS and did not write the update d BIOS. The "ASUS Utility" subsequently did not recognize the blank BIOS and refused to write the update d version.

ASUS bricked their own motherboard, and they wanted me to RMA it at my own expense of money and time. The computer was in a production environment so I couldn't afford more than a few hours of downtime, let alone weeks of downtime. I had hire a taxi and purchase a new motherboard.

I will never buy ASUS again. I also feel that since ASUS is 100% liable for this issue, they should've done the right thing by taking full responsibility and replacing the motherboard entirely at their cost (shipping, etc.) Or at the very least, offer a "hot swap" RMA program.

Good bye ASUS.

Pros
Solid & reliable. Easy install. Dependable.
Cons
None
Summary
Used a bunch of these in custom budget builds. I use only Asus or Gigabyte. No probs with this board what so ever.

Pros
FX-6300 worked out of the box
Cons
Only 1 spare fan header
Summary
I have a few of these for gaming rigs paired with FX-6300.

Cheap, they work, they have what I need. Missing a lot of features, but I don't need any of them.

Don't notice any gaming issues while using these despite many posts on the internet talking about the FX-6300 being throttled (at stock) on these motherboards. Don't take my word for it, but I am not having any major issues. It's possible you will get slightly better performance on a 970+ chipset board, but it runs great for me. (At stock only, I do not recommend overclocking on this board unless you had some additional cooling for the mosfets)

Pros
cheap, low power consumption, supports ecc ram, gblan
Cons
sata2, no usb3, no digital display out
Summary
Used for a simple server. Supports ecc memory, and consumes little power. AM3+ so cpu upgrade in the future should be simple. Would be nice if it had usb3 or a digital video output but not a biggie.
