Style: CROSSHAIR V FORMULA-Z Verified Purchase
Pricey, but this has to be the best quality board that I have ever had the pleasure to build with, and I use the word "pleasure" advisedly. It is weighty and well laid out, and with an AMD FX8350 Black Edition Octacore, Corsair vengeance ram, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 and Arctic cooler this thing sings. It should be a cinch to upgrade, but to date it has coped admirably with the many games that my son has thrown at it, and he still declares himself to be more than happy with the rig. I am currently contemplating another build, and this remains high on my list of prospective motherboards. If this board were any more attractive then I would probably have to marry it!

As a newish pc builder I reviewed many motherboards before settling on this one. The price point was excellent, the reviews were very good to excellent and it could deal with an amd fx-8350. Fitted everything I wanted.

It comes in its own box with a rather large instruction manual. However, unlike other manuals, this one was actually really helpful and it worth reading if you are relatively new to the whole pc building process. Installation in an elite 330 case was a doddle and seems to have excellent build quality.

Upon switching on the system it has some very helpful beeps which let you know that everything is connected or if something is not. The translation to these beeps is in the manual. This was helpful for me as I had not connected the power supply to the video card correctly and so there was no display. A quick look through the book, switch off the pc, connect the video card properly and voila no problems.

For those who are thinking of buying an fx-8350 with this motherboard, I can safely say it fits and works well. I have noticed that some people have had issues with temperature and this motherboard and I seemed to have it too. However a fairly quick bios update done through EZ update (if I remember right) and the cpu stock fan and temperature seemed to get on better together.

Fitted with an AMD 8 core CPU, this mother board is busy working for us. Initially it corrupted several Linux drives, until we got the hang of turning off many of the BIOS functions related to Microsoft 'security' features. CPU is water cooled and stays cold most of the time, we are not over-clocking at all. 32GB of DDR3 RAM, capable of 2.4 GHz but running at the 1.33 GHz default. After a week, it started needing a CPU fan, despite it being turned off in the BIOS. Not a big deal, we just let the CPU's stock fan blow on the regulator's heat-sink, keeps them cool as well. Generally we are happy with this M.B, it is doing the job well, despite the oddity with the CPU fan. The warmest part is the Graphics card, also Asus with a passive cooler. Maybe we will water-cool that as well. We recommend this mother board, if running Linux make sure the BIOS is fully configured to kill all Microsoft 'features'.

No issues with this board. At first, it wouldn't start using FX-8350 but upgrading the BIOS seemed to solve that. That's possible even if the board won't run using a USB stick containing the new BIOS. I'm using this with 16 Gb memory and it's a vast improvement on my old AS Rock Intel E7500 processor board. I didn't even have to use the driver CD - Windows 8.1 just seemed to install the correct drivers.

And the email support from ASUS was quite quick, unlike some other board makers I've experienced.

My only problem was with Windows 8 activation and Microsoft's appalling telephone system.

I received 2 of these motherboards, the first one was faulty and did not work. Amazon were great and I received a replacement the next day, lo and behold it was also faulty. Returned for a refund and would not buy this motherboard again.

This motherboard is great. I bought it for an AMD FX 6300 CPU and a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X Vapor-X GPU. It works completely fine!

Benchmarks:

Battlfield 4 (Ultra): Average of 50FPS
Battlfield 3 (Ultra): Average of 60FPS
Alien Isolation (Ultra): 60FPS (locked at 60 in game)
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: Average of 170FPS
APB Reloaded (Max settings): Average of 80FPS+

Great motherboard for entry level buyers and a lot of cool features such as on board button to access UEFI, check RAM and USB BIOS Flashback! 2 USB 3.0 ports at the back and one USB 3.0 header on the motherboard for the front panel of the case. I put this MOBO in a BitFenix Comrade Mid Tower case. Has 6 SATA III 6GB/s ports. The user manual has a lot of information and tells you how to build a PC as well. Has all the features in the manual too. Worth reading after you build the PC. I run Windows 8 Pro on this build.

Overall, great motherboard, 5 Stars, Would recommend!
