Product Overview AMD SoC Athlon and Sempron Series APUs
This powerful and innovative motherboard supports both dual- and quad-core AMD Athlon and Sempron SoC (system-on-a-chip) APUs integrating Radeon™ HD graphics and support for HD video playback. This revolutionary APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) combines high processing power, advanced Microsoft® DirectX 11.1 graphics, and Fusion controller hubs (FCHs) in one small, efficient package. This SoC APU features up to single-channel DDR3 1600/1333 memory, SATA 6Gbit/s and USB 3.0 natively. AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs are the first multi-core x86 SoC with AM1 Series socket solution for entry-level desktops, improving performance by over 50 percent compared to the previous (‘Brazos 2.0’) generation of AMD APUs.

Media-renowned UEFI BIOS from ASUS provides the smoothest mouse-controlled graphical BIOS, and now features more intuitive functions to quickly take you to favorite BIOS pages and frequently-accessed settings through custom shortcuts. You can even write quick notes in-BIOS for future reference, view an activity log of setting changes and modifications, and rename SATA ports. EZ Mode has a whole new look, upgraded with extra-friendly capabilities like detailed fan controls, XMP profile settings, SATA information, and fast clock adjustment. Together, these perfect your BIOS experience.

USB 3.0 Boost
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) in Windows 8. With USB 3.0 Boost technology, a USB device's transmission speed is significantly increased up to 170%, adding to already fast USB 3.0 performance. ASUS software automatically accelerates data rates for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without any user interaction.

4K Ultra HD Ready
Following up on popular 1080p full HD, 4K Ultra HD is the next big thing, and you’re ready for the upgrade thanks to integrated graphics that natively support up to 4096 x 2160 via HDMI or DisplayPort. That’s four times the pixel count of 1080p (1920 x 1080), offering incredible visual clarity, detail, and realism.

AI Suite 3
ASUS AI Suite 3 offers a brand new user experience through a clearer and more attractive interface with support for larger monitors. It consolidates all exclusive ASUS features into one simple-to-use package, allowing you to supervise overclocking, energy consumption, fan speeds, voltages and more. This all-in-one app offers diverse and easy to use functionality, with no need to switch back and forth between different utilities.

Motherboards are EU Energy-related Products (ErP) ready, which requires products meet high efficiency standards with regards to energy consumption. This is in line with the ASUS vision of creating environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient products through design and innovation that reduce the carbon footprint of products and thus mitigate ecological impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Value for money I have this motherboard with an AMD 5350 installed. Works great, lots of features and is perfect for a media pc build. Be aware though, it only has one channel fan connection, so if you want multiple fans connected you will need a splitter cable. Also the front panel connection is usb 2.0 only. As most modern cases come with a usb 3.0 connection you will need an adapter. These are both available on Scan for a few quid. Apart from that you cannot fault Asus for the money. Put it this way I also have the Asus Z97 Impact and the build quality is identical. 25 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cracking little motherboard Packed full of features, excellent value for money : ) 27 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smashing ITX platform for Kabini, but watch out for "Austerity" measures. Goods: - Decent attention paid to layout - Good set of legacy ports, including parallel and serial - Plenty of modern ports as well, Gigabit LAN and USB 3.0 - Overclock your Kabini APU! Bads: - Ports have questionable build quality, top ones flex a bit too much - Could have done with a 3rd fan connector 17 July 2014

The AMD Athlon 5350 would be ideal. It comes with a cooler that is more than adequate.

I beleive the best CPU for this would be the Athlon 5350. With regards to cooler the stock one is more then enough, if you want to mod it a bit you can swap out the 40mm fan but like i said the stock cooler will do : )
