I was a bit hesitant on buying a brand new motherboard, it has all the benefits of new technology but that can be a double edged sword. But so far it's been great. The Asus bios configuration software is very simple to use. It has 12 USB slots which is excellent, it has no firewire port though and I ideally would have liked one. I'm not into overclocking so I can't review that but it looks straightforward enough.

Instructions for installation aren't the best. The quick start guide was written in every European language except English. So I had to use the pictures and schoolboy French. It also contradicted the manual in places. There's no real one-stop-shop guide for installing the thing but with a bit of common sense it's OK.

All in all it seems a tiny board that punches above its weight, and a real bargain price too.
