It's not the Motherboard

Larry W., Newegg
20 November 2008
  • Summary: This unit is worth every penny even with buying another power supply. But DEFINITIVELY BUY A POWER SUPPLY! With the low cost of high end processors and memory this can be a sweet little machine for hardly anything.
  • Pros: Excellent system with everything you need to have a very cheap fast machine.
  • Cons: Power supply is garbage. Everyone here is posting theres doa. I did as well but it's not the Motherboard it's the power supply. Just do yourself a favor and buy a different power supply with it and you'll be fine. Being a computer tech I should have at least tried a power supply but I did the sam...

3 Years Warrenty Is Incorrect

Beth B., Newegg
20 November 2008
  • Pros: Good base system, all components worked out of the box.
  • Cons: Asus only offers 1 year warrenty, not 3 years on this as described in the specifications. Power supply fan went dead in about the 16th month, no luck getting it replaced by ASUS after calling and speaking to their RMA department. I confirmed on their site that this only has a 1 year warranty, not...

I want another one

Anonymous, Newegg
1 November 2008
  • Summary: I built two for other people and a gaming PC for myself, and I wish I would've built one of those for myself instead.
  • Pros: How many one word descriptions can I use to describe this? Cheap, effective, durable, customizable, roomy, quiet, simple, and satiating. I built two of these for my mom and my friend and they are working perfectly. One was for general computing and one was geared more for gaming and they haven't ...
  • Cons: I would like a few more PCI slots and SATA power plugs, but that's it.

  • Pros: hdmi, card reader, 8gb/4 slots memory cap, small form factor

looks good, but...

Anonymous, Newegg
23 August 2008
  • Summary: There is only one SATA power connection!
  • Pros: The m-atx board looks great and barely makes a sound. the case itself reflects the motherboards' size and should fit on a desk easily.
  • Cons: Mine was DOA; judging from my experience and a number of the other reviews purchasing this barebone is a total gamble.

Great value and quality

William H., Newegg
16 August 2008
  • Summary: This also works great as a dual monitor solution; no need for additional video card and very easy ATI setup program. I use 4 of these for my internal work.
  • Pros: In the past 6 months I've deployed about 20+ with both XP and Vista. I've used the twin Corsair 1 gig as well 4 of the Corsair for a total 4 gigs. Talking to Corsair I've had to increase the power to the RAM by 1 setting and this has always resolved any issues with it; this was on the advise of C...
  • Cons: I really cannot complain once I followed the above steps.

User Review

Vincent D., Newegg
13 August 2008
  • Pros: Cheap, Quiet,
  • Cons: After BIOS upgrade refuses to recognize any more than 64MB ram. 2GB or Corsair DDR2 worked just fine before BIOS upgrade. Ram is also working just fine in a new motherboard.

I used to like Asus

George S., Newegg
6 August 2008
  • Summary: It's really frustrating to wait & wait & have no clue whether the replacement will work (which in this case didn't). I'm a bit wary of buying ASUS products now.
  • Pros: nice looking box
  • Cons: I've had 2 that were DOA. Buyer beware!
