What a marvellous piece of technology.
I am using this motherboard to write this review, as just finished building my games machine.
Originally, I had a Foxconn motherboard, with only 2gb of ram, but managed to play games on it, although not up to the job visually, still managed to be able to complete Tomb Raider 2013 and Resident Evil 6 Bio Hazard. This Asus motherboard is a piece of genius, not only are you able to play PC games on it, but with it comes a Suite off of the DVD that comes with motherboard (obviously), that you can install from Windows Vista up to Windows 8.

In this Suite is a multitude of tweaks, that you can get to run off of your Windows OS. If you are like me and have switched from Cigarettes, to E-cigarettes, then you can switch on the turbo charge utility, which is USB 3 coloured green on the rear panel.
Not only does it charge E-Cigarettes, but also your phone, tablet and possibly a digital camera.
I was blown away, after installing Windows 7 on 1TB hard drive and Ubuntu Mate on a very old 500GB hard drive, Dual boot system.

The BIOS is easy to use and there is a whole load of options from boot menus, to the speed of your on board fans and over clocking, which I am not going to bother about, as I only have a AMD FM2 Dual core 3.90Ghertz processor, which is perfect for Tomb Raider 2013 as the visuals are stunning and my processor, never seems to tire.
I will eventually upgrade to a quad core 4.2 AMD FM2 processor, but because money was tight and on a tight budget, you really have to think, what is best?

I currently have two operating systems on this machine and both are 64bit, as I have 8GB of ram. A lot of people make the mistake of getting over 8GB of ram and try to use a 32 bit machine.

Ok I think I should write a review after having this for 4 days now at my house, It can get very confusing for a beginner like myself on how to set up the bios up with a usb, not only that but when the board came the jumpers were in the wrong pins 2&3 (right side) to start with unless, I had to change them myself and boot up the bios in pins 1&2 (leftside) .So I did that then held down the flash back button for 3 seconds, then finally the drivers were installing from the usb flashback.I knew I updated proper because the LED stopped flashing and I was shocked lol I looked up at my screen and finally saw the asus bios screen for the first time :) I was so relieved.
So the first 3 days I was scratching my head thinking is it the board it self, I was unplugging components then plugging them back in thinking it could be my ram,cpu etc, the board was beating me lol but them 3 days I was looking at how stunning this board actually is.It looks awesome compared the my gigabyte micro atx board it hides wires alot better for it being a bigger board.
The speeds are very quick too still smiling now so what can I say guys,
If you have an amd a10 5800k then this is the perfect match for your cpu but just an amazing board anyway 6g/bs on the sata ports, 3.0 on the usb ports, 3 pci slots, crossfire ready etc, And for the price then this is probably the best fm2 board out there, just looks stunning in a windowed side panal :)
I'm happy to help anyone if you have the same problem as I was having.

Having built many computers over the years, when I fitted this motherboard into my case I was amazed at its build and so many wonderful features I could not wait to power up. I was not disappointed, Windows 8.1 powered up in less than 45 seconds. ASUS have built the perfect board for Wndows 8.1. Can highly rate this product.

Awesome piece of kit, I purchased this originally from the Nord P.C. retailer (which was Amazon fulfilled) but arrived DOA so I contacted Amazon and sent it back for a replacement. Although the motherboard I ordered came a week later, considering that it did come from France and was during the holidays I accepted this and just waited for it (and got a month extension on my Prime account because it was late so that's one benefit from this.) I was skeptical that the replacement would not work either but when I placed all my components into it it worked completely fine. It recognizes my CPU, RAM, Graphics card, SSD as well as my two internal 1TB hard drives absolutely fine although it took ages to install all the drivers. Overall, I recommend this motherboard as it is much better priced than other FM2 motherboards and has all the features you need.

My Build:

A10 5800K APU
8GB 1866 MHz HyperX Fury RAM (2x4GB)
Sapphire HD Radeon 7850 OC 2GB GDDR5
Toshiba M-SATA SSD (In a M-SATA to SATA Enclosure) - works surprisingly well and I get speeds of 500 MB/s+
Seagate 1TB SV35 Hard Drive (x2)
EVGA 500W White 80+ Bronze
Corsair Spec-01 Case
TRENDnet TEW-805UB

Pros:
- UEFI easy to use
- Asus Suite II was pleasant to install and controls all aspects of the computer
- Asus Easy OC was easy to use and I did not have to do much tweaking in the BIOS in order to overclock to 4.6 GHz CPU clock speed and 1996 MHz RAM Speeds
- Amazon customer service was pleasant to work with, they gave me a month extension on prime and they gave me my refund without hesitation

Cons:
- Did a take a while to arrive
- The first order was DOA

In conclusion, I really recommend this motherboard and do get it from Amazon directly, or at least their Amazon fulfilled sellers as you may not get a complete guarantee of a refund/replacement from any of the other sellers.
