Nice Setup

ronald h., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Summary: I bought this same barebones for a friend and it went real smooth..my build however was a major fiasco. After spending hours trying to found out why nothing would post nor show on monitor I finally found there is some type of short.
  • Pros: Nice sturdy case,,runs essentially quiet, lots of usb's, lots of sata slots, great overclocking board.
  • Cons: Power supply is severly underated, buy another as I did.

AWESOME BOX!

Jeffrey W., Newegg
16 March 2009
  • Summary: using XP pro, 4 gigs corsair 800mghz, X2 5800+, 640 gig SATA WD caviar drive, picked up an open box thermaltake cpu cooler for FIVE BUCKS! Chipsets or cpu barely warm to the touch. No OC, no need at present. I'm waiting for price on Phenom II to go down a bit.. I LOVE NEW EGG!
  • Pros: Pre-assembled mobo, ps, card reader, and case... Appeals to my character flaws.. CHEAP and LAZY. No time or effort to set up, runs like a champ with no difficulty at all. Can handle new phenom II or hybrid crossfire with ati vid card. Unbelievable deal. No sign of being underpowered. Set up was b...
  • Cons: I've got NOTHING bad to say about this box! Sure its small, but once set up, how often you want to mess around in there anyway? Takes up less space in the office.

Versatile barebones--a good buy

Douglas J., Newegg
13 February 2009
  • Summary: I put an AMD AthlonX2 Dual Core (BE-2400) in this thing, with 4 MB RAM (all purchased from Newegg), and it runs very cool. Cool air blows out of the case--I don't feel any heat at all! I am impressed.
  • Pros: Outstanding amount of ports (USB, Firewire, HDMI, SATA, ESATA, SPDIF, 6 channel surround sound, card reader, DVI...did I miss any?), for all kinds of uses. I didn't find the case cramped --lots of room for air circulation and for cables (especially if you skip IDE and use SATA instead). Nice to h...
  • Cons: Only one SATA cable included, and only one SATA power outlet on stock power supply. Be prepared to buy a cable and a 4 pin Molex to SATA adapter. Power supply is likely underpowered, depending on how full you stuff this thing. Consider getting one with more wattage. No case fans--be prepared to b...

ASUS GOOD

Dianne H., Newegg
13 February 2009
  • Summary: CPU: AMD Athlon x2 7750 ($69) OC'd to 3.1GHz RAM: Kingston HyperX 2GB PC8500 ($30) 1066Mhz and I was able to get benchmarks that rival or beat a more expensive Intel E8600 or Q6600 system Thanks AMD + ASUS
  • Pros: -System is loaded with features -Overclock capabilities -LOTS OF USB ports -MediaCard bundled
  • Cons: DO NOT UPGRADE TO THE NEW BIOS 0406 I tried it and after I did it the on/off switch would not work. I would have to power off the PSU (switch at the back) wait for the mobo light to go off and do this 3 times, before the system would be able to be turned on again. Had to burn a copy to a CD and t...

Mixed Bag 3.5 Eggs/ 5

David I., Newegg
3 February 2009
  • Summary: All in all the performance is pretty good with Vista 64 a mere AMD 64X2 4200, 3 g of ram, and the LG super Blu drive. The HDMI is the real issue for me as I intended to test this as a HTPC - It will not pass video or audio through my sony STRDA5200ES - it will pass 1920 x1080 direct to the tv and...
  • Pros: Motherboard is loaded :usb,firewire,sata,esata,dsub,hdmi,dvi,display port,iee1394,optical out. Motherboard is an Asus M3A78EM / V
  • Cons: Case is very cramped. You can barely add or remove ram or attach the cpu fan poower (4pin)without removing the Hard drives. It is just way to cramped. Worst though is the power supply it is non standard form and only 300 watts, but the real downfall is only 1 Sata power. Thats right kids dont for...

Wow! This is HTPC heaven

Murray L., Newegg
31 January 2009
  • Pros: Tons of storage options; recommend WD 1TB SATA quiet, no Seagate Clunk Hybrid graphics ATI HD3200 onboard; drop in any ATI 2600++ and you have a power-sensitive Crossfire hybrid (i.e., graphics power when you need it!! So when you're listening to music/working from home, completely quiet!
  • Cons: Wish ASUS bought into the 'silent-PC' movement. Coolermaster has some great 'silent PC' cases, but no mobo/power supply options. ASUS owns the 'barebones' market; If you are an AMD fan you will not be unhappy with this model. But why factory default to 220V??? Only 90mm fans supported, NONE INCLU...

Great little system

Gerald L., Newegg
28 January 2009
  • Summary: I am a system builder so I do about 35 to 40 of these a month. Great product for the price.
  • Pros: Great case for any build. I love Asus barebones as they are stout little cases. Never had any problems with them. Most people that report problems with ALL Asus barebones have not set the correct voltage on the back of the case. Factory it comes set at 220V. Phenom support!!
  • Cons: Shipping this case is kind of expensive, I love it when NE ffers free shipping on this. Not really enough screws for the complete job.
