M5A78L-M/USB3 is based on AMD 760G chipset, which was introduced back in 2009 and still successfully sells as a main board component. This board can only offer USB 3.0 interface.
In addition to the speed, the motherboard is sometimes required to provide maximum opportunities to connect external devices – they can be both internal (hard disks, DVD readers, disk drives, video cards) and external (printers, scanners, hard disks, monitors, TVs and other devices). Various interfaces are required for connection, and this board is quite rich in this respect.
As for image output devices this board allows you to simultaneously connect two devices, for which it has three video-outputs, two digital interfaces (DVI-I and HDMI) and analog (D-SUB, aka VGA). Both digital interfaces can not be used at the same time, in fact, they duplicate each other. You can connect both a monitor and a TV to either one.
Sound this board can also output in analog mode (up to 8 channels) and in digital (there is a digital optical output). As a prerequisite, the motherboard has a 1GBit/s network interface.
On the rear panel there are four USB 2.0 outputs (for connecting common devices like a printer or a keyboard) and two USB 3.0 outputs (for connecting high-speed devices such as hard drives). In addition we would also like to mention a universal PS/2 socket for keyboard or mouse connection.

Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 manual
Internal interfaces are represented:
- SATA2 (which is modestly described on the board as SATA3G, which determines the interface speed of 3GBit/s) in the amount of six pieces;
- An interface for PCIe video cards installation;
- Two slots for PCIe devices installation;
- four slots for installing memory modules (marked with a color for installing pairs of modules to work in dual-channel mode);
- three slots for USB 2.0 expansion cards;
- one slot each for the obsolete LPT/COM interfaces.
It’s worth mentioning that the card allows overclocking CPU and memory by changing frequencies and voltages of some components, as well as “unlocking” processor cores in which they are locked by the manufacturer. This way you can turn a single-core Sempron processor into a two-core AthlonIIX2 and a three-core AthlonIIX3 into an AthlonIIX4. Naturally, the process is not guaranteed, but it is possible and has been successfully implemented.
