5.0 out of 5 stars Great motherboard
Cheap B85 motherboard that does the job. Has enough SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3 ports, PCIE 3.0 for a GPU as well. Easy to install, lots of options in the BIOS too.

2.0 out of 5 stars VGA connector faulty
I've been an Asus fan for a long time, but this is another board that I've had to send back. This one appeared to be dead, but was in fact due to a problem with the VGA connector. Asus support said just return in, so I did. Instead I got an MSI B85M-G43 and that is working fine, and I'll be sticking with MSI in future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Setup was easy, and the board came with the driver CD, 2 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Asus B85M-G Motherboard (Intel B85 Express, DDR3, S-ATA 600, Micro ATX, PCI Express 3.0 x16, USB 3.0, HDMI, Network iControl, CrashFree BIOS 3, Socket 1150) (Accessory)
One of the only motherboards under £50 with 4 RAM slots, socket 1150, USB3 headers, and a B85 chipset.
Works perfectly with a Xeon E3-1230v3, 4x HyperX Fury 4GB, Sapphire R9-270X, and a Scythe Samurai ZZ Cooler.

Setup was easy, and the board came with the driver CD, as well as two black SATA cables, one straight, and one right-angled.
Cannot comment on the integrated graphics, as my Xeon does not support them, but the onboard sound is good, and the ethernet has been stable so far, unlike the Gigabyte boards.

5.0 out of 5 stars well impressed with ASUS, fantastic board!!, 25 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Asus B85M-G Motherboard (Intel B85 Express, DDR3, S-ATA 600, Micro ATX, PCI Express 3.0 x16, USB 3.0, HDMI, Network iControl, CrashFree BIOS 3, Socket 1150) (Accessory)
This board is fantastic and massive step up from my old asrock board (which was ddr2, usb2, 775pin cpu). Got this along with pentium g3258 anniversary edition cpu, was able to overclock this cpu on this board with no problems at all to 4.3ghz on stock cooler.

Really love my new pc build and am sue it will last me quite a few years.

Do not hesitate in buying this board, great quality, great price and lots of features.

Looked for a cheap MOBO which would help me overclock my g3258. Was surprised how easy it allowed me to overclock, even though it's not a Z-motherboard.
