Default Re: choosing my new mobo

So its overall performance is satisfying for its money? Will it last for long?

I am asking all those qustions because my previous mobo was this one:
GIGABYTE - Product - Motherboard - Specification

Its overall performance was good but as i've said before northbridge was dramatically hot,so hot i had to install this extra fan, which indeed worked but was loud.

So this ASUS will run ok for 1 or 2 months of uptime? By the way i have a watercooling kit, so i will have to install the fan, is it loud? :P

Thanks for your reply!

the asus will definitely last. It's a quality mobo and the fan isn't too can hear it but it's not annoying.

I've had my northbridge set to 1.5v before and the mobo temps never rose above the fan is very effective.
