Bought 2 with old bios

John Black, Amazon
6 April 2016
  • Summary: I like these boards, but beware - This looks like old stock and the Bios is older, which means some of the newer 4th gen CPUs will result in the Cpu fan spinning for a second then shutting off. Great board, but not so great with old Bios.

Positive Experience

24 March 2016
  • Summary: This was my first PC built, all from scratch. This MOBO turned out to be surprisingly easy to use. After the built and when I connected monitor and turned on the power I got ASUS BIOS screen. I am using this PC for nearly half a year by now and no problems.

Great board.

Schmoo, Amazon
24 February 2016
  • Summary: Have sold a few dozen of these to customers with no issues. Good for an inexpensive home or business build. 4 memory slots which is good as many low cost boards only have 2. This is a CSM model which can sometimes be hard to find but worth the extra few bucks as Asus will cross-ship if you end up...

Excellent, but a little flimsy...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 February 2016
  • Summary: Upgraded from a broken Gigabyte GA-H81M-H, I couldn't be happier with this purchase, more expansion and RAM slots as well. Everything works well and the UEFI-BIOS has a very easy and intuitive menu.

Great motherboard, so far so good

  • Summary: Great motherboard, so far so good. But when I bought it, the Norton trial did not work, I had problems with all of the drivers, and the launcher for the Gigabyte motherboard driver had many issues also.

Solid board if not DOA

Loren S., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: ASUS quality control appears to be slipping across all motherboard constructions. If you get a non DOA board they're great, otherwise not so much. In high throughput builds these boards are excellent and make for good micro ATX terminals.
  • Pros: Board layout is good for a business or office build, which one would expect of a B85 chipset as this is the target market. Installation was simple and straghtforward, though CPU fan connection was a bit tricky with the selected cooler (SilenX EFZ-120HA5 120mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler). Scraped so...
  • Cons: Board is surprisingly flexible for such a small surface area, I noticed a fair bit of flexing during installation in the case for the install that yielded a DOA board (I didn't bread-board so I can't say if it was an install problem or not). Careful install may be wise to avoid such potentially d...
