Summary: I have an ASUS board in my computer, and was doing a budget build for a client. Stuck a Sempron 3000+ with the Barton core in this. Everything worked fine except there was some hardware conflict between the board and the ASUS nVIDIA GeForce MX4000 video card.
Summary: I purchaced this board a while back and I felt i was a good board for the money and probably wrote a review for this already but i have something i would like to add to head warning to future builders.
Summary: I've had this motherboard for over a year now, and I really haven't had any problems with it. There was an instance where I had installed my GeForce FX 5200 video card, and it kept on causing my computer to crash because something wasn't compatible.
Summary: I've had this board for ~1yr. I have a barton 2500 in it with 1gig crucual DDR3200. I can OC to ~196 fsb and windows boots and I can game, but it will occasionally crash. I have gone to 200 fsb, but it crashed HARD.
Summary: I have one of these in sevice that seems to go into a coma once in a while. The monitor goes black and it won't wake up no matter what you do unless it is rebooted. Otherwise it runs well, no lockup or such. ( ASUS GF4mx 440, 512mb Corsair 2700, 2500+XP , WinXP, (2) 120mb Seagates)
Summary: Overall a good board, LAN works well with my Belkin router, Sound is one of the better on-board solutions. Only real problem with it is that with my Barton 2500, the PC3200 DDR (Geil Golden Dragon) I have will only run at 333mhz. According to Asus, this is a "chipset limitation".
Summary: This board runs great and is super easy to set up. The only problem I have is the mouse and keyboard lock up when using this system with a Belkin F1DJ102P B KVM 2 port switch and the Belkin Omniview 4 port KVM switch. Hooked up to a regular mouse and keyboard setup, it works fine.
Summary: Have had the A7V8X/A MOBO over a year now using every day for work and still running without a glitch. BIOS flashes esy and everythin I've works great. Also recording music from guitar and keyboard. ASUS SUPPORT IS NOT THAT GOOD FOR THE HOME BUILDER. THANK GOD NO REAL PROBLEMS.
