Windows 8 ready board only

Tom B., Newegg
15 November 2013
  • Summary: It's a good board. I don't really have any serious issues with it, since I'm running Windows 8. I'm going to take 1 egg off my rating due to the BIOS posting issue I mentioned.
  • Pros: Numerous USB 2.0 ports, more than you'll find on many other main boards, low cost, and the included ASUS software is very useful. The FM1 socket processor, for this board, is also inexpensive.
  • Cons: This board only works with Windows 8. Using any other operating system results in the network adapter (RJ-45 port) not functioning. The RJ-45 ethernet port only works with Windows 8. Also, I have trouble getting the BIOS screen to post during start-up, but I can live without it.

Works well with Win 8.1 Pro

Phyllis D., Newegg
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I had wanted an inexpensive small system to edit church services and to produce audio CDs for our choir. The little system will never be used for gaming, so I can't address the boards capabilities for that purpose, but it runs graphic editing software, video editing software, sound editors, and home...
  • Pros: I had been experiencing issues with the way another brand of board worked with my A8-3850. After trying everything imaginable, including reloading the entire operating system twice, I gave up and bought the Asus FM1A55-M LE R2.0. I loaded the system a third time, and everything worked perfectly, ...
  • Cons: I've found no cons so far, except that the included disk had drivers for Win7 only. But almost all of t he drivers are already in Win 8.1, and revised software for 8.1 is available on the Asus website.

An excellent motherboard for an excellent price!

Nasser B., Newegg
24 August 2013
  • Summary: If you want an FM1 motherboard that supports crossfire and are on a budget, you can't do much better!
  • Pros: The motherboard is very well designed with a logical layout, the ports are all located in easy to access locations and the SATA connectors have plenty of clearance even for large video cards.
  • Cons: The only real con I can think of is the VRM's could be a little more robust for overclocking, but it got my 3670k and ram overclocked just fine.

OnBoard Video was bad from the start

William V., Newegg
17 May 2013
  • Summary: Had 2 PCI x16 slots for video cards but for a nongamer who doesn't need a dedicated video card, its really depressing. Will probably have to go buy one in order to get display working.
  • Pros: -Bios has lots of configurable options, especially tailored to those that want to overclock their CPU -Lots of SATA slots, USB ports, fan ports
  • Cons: -Onboard video was bad from the start. I get intermittent displays which usually requires unplugging monitor/restarting computer or a combination of the two.

DOA

Jian W., Newegg
12 May 2013
  • Summary: waiting for a refund.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: DOA. My computer couldn't boot. I had to buy a new CPU from newegg, and a new PSU at BB. It was eventually confirmed by the BB technicians that the mobo was dead.

PS/2 port malfunction

Marco V., Newegg
30 April 2013
  • Pros: For the price, the mobo has performed to the standards I expected. I do not use the on-board graphics card so I cannot testify to its reliability. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
  • Cons: The PS/2 ports never worked. Apparently I am not the only customer who has experienced the problem. This is not a major issue considering I already used a usb mouse, and found a twenty dollar usb keyboard.

Great motherboard

Todd K., Newegg
6 April 2013
  • Summary: Bought two of these for a home business along with a lower end A4 cpu, 4GB Kingston Hyper X Blu, and a SSD. Happy with the performance and would purchase again.
  • Pros: Easy setup, and good overall performance. Asus quality is evident even in a somewhat budget board as this.
  • Cons: None
