Mark 2010-06-04

Easy, smart and highly functional board

Very happy with this board. So easy to clock without using any of the features. I have my i5 750 running 4.3GHZ with bloc set to 204, multi to 21 and memory to 1600mhz and it's prime stable! Looks smart, functions very well and it's rock solid

Mark H 2010-03-31

rock solid

further review. Have this overclocked now to 3.9 ghz! ( v core 1.34v, imc 1.219v, amazing low voltage! ) prime95 fully stable (8hrs- zero errors!)
temps idle around 40 with noctua np-12. mem 1600 gt corsair ram @ 8-8-8-24/ 1492 mhz
Supreme trouble-free board and has yet to give me problems despite what u hear in the forums.

superb board

this board is excellent, from the build quality to the features it excels from start to finish. The software is easy to work with and will have you overclocked in 2 mouse clicks :D

Bought this puppy along with an i5 750 (2.66ghz) cooled with noctua`s cpu cooler, and corsair gt 1600 ram.
Used auto o/c facilty thru asus`s turbo software and have this running at 3.25ghz ( cpu 1.25v) and mem at 811mhz (1622!) (1.656v). Extremely stable. max temp wih prime 95 - 64 celcius. idle temp about 38 celcius
well laid out and prob the best looking board there is. ROG logo is a nice touch.
sound card sounds pretty good too ( even compared to my asus essence stx)
Didnt get cpu error fan on boot that is mentioned in some reviews. Must be an old bios issue and again asus`s turbo software is a joy to use and provides extremely stable overclocks.
