WHS 2011 Compatible

TBaecher, Amazon
18 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item because it's compatible with the Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS 2011) software and I was able to reutalize some of my existing hardware. Another advantage this motherboard has is that it has 5 SATA ports and one eSATA port. I utilized all of them with a RAID-5 configuration.

breathe life back into one!

Julian S., Newegg
2 November 2011
  • Summary: i didn't purchase this board i salvaged it from the trash, very unstable with its SATA controller and tended to crash before it was able to boot windows even from the CD, i however noted a rather large number of blown out capacitors around the PCI and PCIe slots (10 or so) and after recapping its...
  • Pros: Juggernaut, i have never dealt with a tougher motherboard in a desktop computer.
  • Cons: tends to 'pop gaskets' see other thoughts

VISTA BEWARE

Stephen b., Newegg
21 July 2007
  • Summary: This was very frustrating, particularly as the Vista upgrade adviser said it was OK. So BEWARE.
  • Pros: had this borad for a year and it has performed well. I overclocked my 4400+ to 2.6 Ghz no problem.
  • Cons: In my most recent build of a HTPC 2 ASUS boards died in 5 weeks - RMA'd them both. So took this old faithful out of my gaming rig and put it in the HTPC case but could NOT load VISTA. Spent 4 hours on phone the MS - even gave me a new product key. Wouldn't work even when I tried to load it whilst...

Motherboard From HE-L-L

Anonymous, Newegg
26 May 2007
  • Summary: This Mobo does run fine now and very much cooler than the A8N-SLI it replaced. I would like to see ASUS take a more proactive approach towards ease of installation. And ASUS -- forget the floppy for RAID support -- no one owns floppys any more!
  • Pros: Replaces the 3-year old A8N-SLI that would no longer POST. Cool running and NO Noise -- (no fans). Nice layout.
  • Cons: This MB was the MOST Difficult install I have ever had to deal with. STUPID BIOS. Installed WINXP. All okay. Reboot -- and I could never get past the Windows Start up screen. MUST download the latest BIOS 14.XX. Nothing but trouble for the first couple of days. Running SLI with wide video cards? ...

nice board with a few minor problems

Anonymous, Newegg
21 May 2007
  • Summary: First board had a clear plastic protective coating on the NB and SB. This was NOT documented, but obviously had to be removed to prevent overheating. Second board did not have these covers. Could Asus be listening?
  • Pros: Very well designed board, documentation is excellent, great overclocking ability, easy to update BIOS.
  • Cons: This is my second build with this MB. First build went fine. Second system had very weak audio output. Tried every known trick to increase the volume including downloading new drivers from both Asus and Realtek. No luck. Not worth RMA'ing for this, so I just popped in a $30 S***dB****er card and ...

All is well, except the sound.

christopher r., Newegg
19 May 2007
  • Summary: It seems the thermal grease installed on the heatsinks may need time to cure. I noticed very high temps on NB/SB (50-56 deg. celsius) until about a week later, I did install the extra fan although advised not to, only raised my cpu temp. 1 deg.
  • Pros: Liquid pipe cooling, quiet operation, NOS overclocking (OC'ing for dummies, lol), as well as manual overclocking, good accessory package.
  • Cons: Sound is sketchy, in both windows/linux, sound would squeak and squelch, not very loudly, but would constantly make all kinds of weird noises.

great board, bad audio

Brett T., Newegg
18 May 2007
  • Pros: This is a really good board, have had no problems with it- very stable (I don't overclock however). Components / Drivers seem well supported. I like the dual gigabit ethernet.
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, there's quite a lot of interference on the audio output and it's rather noticeable. I had hoped to get rid of my 3rd party sound card, but I don't think thats an option, so I'll have to take out one of my vga fans and put the sound card back in.
