Good Board for Linux

Elario Dalmas, II, Amazon
18 May 2014
  • Summary: Read the Linux hardware reviews that said this board is stable and plug-n-play. Not entirely true- I had to install the proprietary AMD Catalyst drivers by command line to get usable video under Ubuntu 12.04 (Mythbuntu 12.04).

Solid Performer, For What It Is

David G., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I think this is a great board for a media server - in general. Unfortunately, for my needs it struggles. I'm running Sabnzbd, Couchpotato, Transmission, Headphones, plus hosting DLNA and SAMBA, on Ubuntu Server 12.04.4. My server has 4 GB RAM (1066), 5 SATA drives (1 + 4 in a RAID5).
  • Pros: Solid performance. Quiet. Small form factor. 5 6.0GB/s SATA connectors. Cheap.
  • Cons: Relatively slow. Not bad for a file server, but proving to be inadequate for my needs in a media server.

Perfect high-end HTPC or low end server board

Thomas B., Newegg
31 January 2014
  • Summary: This board is available at a lower price from another vendor so that is where I purchased my last board.
  • Pros: This is an expensive board but has optical out and great onboard video for HTPC use. It's overkill for most home theater systems, however. I have two of these MBs as HTPC front-ends and one Foxconn AT-5570 fanless systems. The little Foxconn performs about the same, for HTPC but is missing optica...
  • Cons: It maxes out at 8GB of RAM, limiting performance as a file server. This limit comes from the ASUS BIOS. Also, it's too expensive.

Good units with a few issues

Sergio E., Newegg
8 September 2012
  • Summary: good units and worth the money but i really hope ASUS fixis the small little issues soon
  • Pros: Got 2 units. one runs 7 64bit and the other runs home server. they seem to work well most of the time. they are very fast for how little power they consume. great connection options.
  • Cons: i have been noticing random issues where they both seem to slow down for no real reason. also the USB drivers are a little funky causing even USB mouse movements to become choppy. since these units are just really storing data i don't care but it get annoying when setting up

User Review

  • Excerpt: Не знаю зачем такой плате два порта PCI и один PCI-e для видеокарты, кто покупает плату с припаянным слабым APU думаю вряд-ли будет ставить "игровую" карточку, а с остальным этот APU и сам разберется. Могли бы уменьшить размер и оставить один слот PCI-e для периферии (вторая сетевая прим.).
  • Pros: Низкое энергопотребление; Все нужные и не очень порты; Возможность собрать тихий медиацентр;
  • Cons: Нет USB 3.0 вывода на переднюю панель; Могли бы сделать в mini-ITX; Завышена цена;

Bien mais trop cher :(

Arnaud, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: J'ai choisi ce produit pour un usage bureautique et multimedia. De plus c'est économe en énergie et ne nécessite aucun montage processeur/carte graphique (si ce n'est de visser le ventilateur fourni avec la carte mère sur le radiateur du processeur , ce qui est enfantin).
