5.0 out of 5 stars Great motherboard 24 Jan 2013
By George
Verified Purchase
Nothing bad to say about this motherboard, does everything it says.
Good points are:
-It has an AM3+ socket for the CPU which will work with any of the bulldozer processors (e.g. amd fx6200 and fx8350).
-It has 4 slots for RAM, which means you can have up to 16gb of ram, although i've got 8gb and never used all of that.
-It has USB 3.0 at the back of the motherboard, meaning faster data transfer on usb 3.0 enabled devices.
-It comes with a disk with software which can monitor your cpu and motherboard temperatures, which is useful if you want to do benchmarks etc.
-under 50 and has all the above features, which is brilliant!

Bad points are:
-Nothing at the price it is. There are better motherboards out there which have enough slots for 2 or 3 graphics cards and stuff but those cost 150, which is way above my price range and many other people's!

This is a great motherboard which has everything a computer needs to have, don't hesitate on buying this if your CPU had an AM3+ socket!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 29 Feb 2012
This mobo is superb value for money.
Core unlocking and overclocking and you can charge any usb powered or charged accessory even when not powered up itself.
Only deficiency is....... deficiencies.
Its got everything and happy are those who have bought this honest product.
AMD have the budget end tied up.
Great Processors at low costs and you dont need to keep changing the mobo every 2 years like Intel.
TRULY AMD ARE A FRIEND TO THE SELF BUILDER OF PCs.
May their star rise higher as a result.

By Az1986
Verified Purchase
Got this paired with 8GB Corsiar Vengenance ram a Athlon 2 X4 630 processor and a XFX radeon HD6770. This board is excellent Speeds through USB 3 are good also USB 2 ports seem very quick as well. All in All good board also love the fact you can set a picture for when computer comes on and looks fine even on a high res 24 inch and 23 screens
Also computer seems a lot quicker compared to my old gigabyte board. BUY THIS BOARD IT IS AMAZING

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing motherboard! 32gb RAM - Not 16gb 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
brilliant motherboard, wont find a better one anywhere for this price. one thing I will say is that this supports a maximum of 32gb RAM - not 16gb as stated here. there are 4 RAM slots each capable of 8gb RAM modules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Value AM3+ Motherboard 22 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
For my first build, I found this ticked all the boxes apart from SLI, but you wont get that on a MATX board anyway.
I chose this also for it supporting USB3 and supporting the FX 8320, I couldn't find a better deal
It came with Bios version 1401, which supported my FX 8320 straight out of the box.
This motherboard comes with some helpful features
The only problem I can see on this board is the abundance of a USB3 header as this would have been preferred over serial and parallel headers

All in all, great value, build quality and reliability as you should expect from Asus

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value & Performance 4 May 2013
By Mojo
Verified Purchase
This mobo was central to my budget home built music PC as for the price, it is a good performer with good specs. Asus have a good reputation for motherboards and this one is no exception. I was also pleasantly surprised that the RAM limit was not 8GB as I was led to believe but 32GB, which is brilliant. Although i5 and i7 CPU's are recommended for music recording, they tend to be more expensive and for the sort of music I intend to do are not strictly necessary, and the AMD Phenom II 4core black CPU I installed was about 100 cheaper than the Intel alternative. The extra cash saved was used to buy a SSD which has improved loading speeds considerably. With 10 x USB 2.0 ports and 2 x USB 3.0 ports this board can deal with all my peripherals without having to buy an additional USB expander. The USB 3.0 ports should deal with any future expansions. The six SATA ports are also good, although once an SSD, DVD drive and a couple of HDD's are installed it only leaves 2 ports free for future use. My only criticism is that the SATA ports are 3GBs instead of the faster 6GBs, but this is a mid-range board and the difference in speed would be hard to notice. The 4 expansion ports are okay and the on board sound and graphics are good and, as a music PC doesn't require state of the art graphics or sound (we use an external audio interface) upgrades are not necessary, unless you want to play top rate games. All in all a great motherboard for the money which has enabled me to build a well specified music PC for under 500.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great with 8350!! 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase
This board is brilliant, running 8350 at 4.0GHZ!!!

For 200 quid a 8350 and this board outclasses the same price range for an Intel.

Disclaimer-I own a Intel gaming pc and love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 the to run the AMD FX-6100, from what I have read people where talking about compatibility issues between the two. I will confirm now that there has been no problems with the set up, I have just used the disk provided by Asus and all is running well. So I will take it that the disks provided with the motherboard are up to date for running of the new FX series of CPUS.
The motherboard its self does every thing it says on the tin, which is grate for such a low price motherboard.
Great product, great price.
Would recommend this product to any one.
