can't get good customer support

carmine b., Newegg
4 August 2013
  • Summary: How do I update the Bios and or whatever else I can download to update this board? Running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64Bit AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0GHz Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D AD3870WNGXBOX...
  • Pros: seems to have run decent enough the last 14 months but bogs down with more than 60 windows open but only using 24% of CPU and 13gb of the ram i haven't tried any new games on it though
  • Cons: can't get good customer support when trying to find out what RAM to buy to upgrade. sent me an email with ram none saying 8gb stick (32gb) at 1866 only 4gb sticks unless I want to use 1600 and the qualified vendors list doesn't even mention running 64gb though the description says it will

Good Performance, No WOL support

Pradyot G., Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Pros: Great performance. Great plug and play. Great integrated graphics support.
  • Cons: No WOL support, really? Even cheapos do that these days. MB cant update directly, you have to download and then update. Not a biggy, but why have the option when it cant.

Nice, but...

Robert S., Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Summary: The overhead of sending this board back is not worth it to me for the performance increase of dual channel. But, I am disappointed. Too bad, because I have had great luck in the past with ASUS. I have probably built 10 systems using their boards over the years.
  • Pros: Seems to be a well built board, BIOS is nice, lots of options, reasonable set of USB ports. Stable in single channel memory mode.
  • Cons: Nothing I can do to get this board to work in dual-channel memory mode with 2x4GB G.Skill RipJaws X memory (F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL) [N82E16820231455]. The memory works fine in single channel mode (A+A2 or B1+B2) , but fails in 1024 locations in dual channel (A1+B1 or A2+B2 with several bits incorrect...

Board or APU? On board video died.

Brandon M., Newegg
16 December 2012
  • Summary: ASUS F175-M Pro AMD A6 3500 Triple core Crucial Ballistix 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1869DT1TX0 Windows 7 Pro 64 Ubuntu 12.10
  • Pros: It was an easy build, everything went together without a hitch, booted up as it was supposed to. Descent board, Bios was easy to tweak, no quirks to speak of for the first several months.
  • Cons: I've had this since 5/7/2012 and recently the onboard video stopped working. It just suddenly quit with no warning. I swtched between the DVI and VGA thinking of a possible failure there but the monitor didn't even light. I tried a GeForce 9800 from my old system, and everything works. It's just ...

Not sure

Nicholas R., Newegg
1 June 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure, and others aren't either on what the issue is. I hooked up all the cables, and I flipped the switch on my power supply, and a green learned on the motherboard and that was it. I'm not sure if it's the power supply or motherboard. I need some help.
  • Pros: Nice motherboard.
  • Cons: Possibly faulty. (most likely other hardware)

No VGA

Michael K., Newegg
13 January 2012
  • Pros: Wanted the features, But problem. While setting up the Bios the VGA out died. I use an older KDS CRT monitor. Booted up OK when first installed but no accelerated graphic, tried tweaking BIOS when it fails. ASUS support said "when VGA output is not there the MOBO needs replacing". Any ideas on wh...

Worked, but grounding problem

Daniel R., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: Wouldn't stop me from buying an Asus board again, as I own several. With any manufacturer a bad one can get through. But for this particular build i went with a biostar and have had no problems.
  • Pros: The board worked with no issues initially. Nice bios.
  • Cons: Developed a grounding noise problem that was not a result of the case or any connectors. Assembling the board outside the case produced the same annoying chirping noise while moving the mouse. Was eventually able to narrow the issue down after swapping endless amounts of components. The only thin...

Problem after Sleep Mode

Sidney W., Newegg
4 August 2011
  • Pros: It is a well designed motherboard, USB 3.0, HDMI SATA 6 Gbs
  • Cons: After I put everything and test everything I gave the machine to my friend and the next day he calls me telling me after wake up the computer from sleep mode he looses internet connection and sometimes looses sound too. I updated the Bios to Version 0802 and also i did a clean install and still h...
