5.0 out of 5 stars Just worked
I don't know what the other reviewer is on about. Bought this, and slapped it in a case with a 60 disc drive. Installed dual boot Linux Mint and Windows 7. Absolutely no problems. Windows experience index marks 7.5 (the maximum) for processor speed and memory. Onboard graphics is lower at 4.8, but you'd install a separate card for gaming anyhow. Loaded a couple of 3D...

Loaded a couple of 3D models in Google Sketchup which puts machines through their paces, and they can be manipulated speedily. Recommended.

Apart from a delay in delivery through no fault of ADMI this has proved to be an excellent purchase. I am running it primarily with Linux Mint 13 Maya (gnome style platform) although I tried it first with Zorin 5 which proved to be a little unstable on the system. I am also using it for the time being with Windows 7 HP 64 bit which utilises the systems capabilities more than the Linux side. The system is probably a bit over spec for Mint but I am doing more photography and decided this was worth trying after reading other reviews.

I really wanted a system that is Linux friendly which this appears to be so far. I did add a separate graphics card, a Radeon 6450 which is probably a bit overkill but the power of the board allows for some change of use.

I found ADMI very helpful when they discovered that the original package had been damaged in transit and they arranged for a replacement on express delivery. So far, top marks all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great cost for peformance., 31 Aug 2012
This review is from: AMD Bulldozer FX-8120 8 Core 3.10GHz - Asus M5A78L-M USB3 HDMI Motherboard - Patriot 8GB 1600MHz Dual Channel DDR3 VIPER 3 BLACK MAMBA RAM Memory - PRE-ASSEMBLED COMPONENT BUNDLE
Only seen two reviews here so thought I'd make this a third.
Very good board, arrived on time,tracked delivery processor came pre fitted with RAM plugged in the PSU GPU case etc.. fired it up and is perfect.
The MB has USB3 which works very well, the processor is good and the RAM and processor both get a maximum, 7.9 on WEI. If you plan to use the inbuilt graphics card as I did for a bit it is a AMD HD 3000 which is a rather weak card but, easily capable of your basic day to day use. A very good MB, processor,RAM for a good price,with the half the fitting job done for you.
Loses 1 star as the MB does not have 6gbps transfer, but i'm perfectly happy to live with 3.

A highly recommended product.
Edit: A few months on and is still working fine. FYI, I have a 650w psu and a radeon HD 7870
