Fair for the price

Justin M., Newegg
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I would like to point out that at the time of this posting the motherboard in question is at least 5yrs old now and dosnt even have DDR3 support
  • Pros: Cheap, and moderately powerful when I bought it. it supports the newest Phenom II processors, and though displaying a warning about the processor not being compatible on start up I have never had any trouble with it. the build also had a 550 watt powersupply 4GB DDR2 800 ram running XP 64bit with...
  • Cons: About a year of having this the motherboard died. Though reasonable because the caps are only rated for 5000 hours of life which being constantly on is not even half that time. I had wished I figured this out before buying a new CPU.

The manual is a joke

Michael M., Newegg
9 August 2011
  • Summary: One of the ATX mounting holes (the corner directly beneath the PCI slots) lacks a grounding solder pad. I'll have to get paper washers or nylon screws if I want good structural support there. I really expect better from ASUS.
  • Pros: Rock solid in operation (so far), not a single hiccup. Serving my needs precisely and well.
  • Cons: Getting into BIOS the first time is a PITA. It took me twenty minutes to get in. Config defaults to QuickBoot with a full-screen logo. That left my window for finding and hitting the correct key under 250ms long. BIOS settings are confusing. "MAC LAN" can be set to "Auto" or "Disabled"...so what ...

M2N68 TPM WHAT????????

Richard A., Newegg
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I am going to have to request an RMA!
  • Pros: Great board for the money! Easy installation and setup!
  • Cons: What is up with this non-existant TPM device? Asus threw a loose (OUT DATED)page in the manual regarding this feature! There aren't any BIOS updates available to fix this error in the POST!

Almost There

David R., Newegg
23 February 2011
  • Summary: Picked up a new dual core CPU for dirt cheap and Mom's happy
  • Pros: I was building a PC for my mom (so no need for high end) and chose this one because I had a 6000+ CPU laying around. Good enough video for my mom's needs.
  • Cons: Although the 6000+ is listed on the compatable CPUs, it isn't. Apparently, there are some that don't work...

Looks like a good Mobo - if it will work

Jospeh W., Newegg
24 October 2010
  • Summary: I'll come back and rate it higher if I can get it working - but I've been building for 20 years, and this has frustrated me greatly!
  • Pros: Got this as part of a bundle with ASUS 5450 video card (thanks NewEgg). Easy to put together inside a tight HEC 6T Series 6T18BB case except one thing (See cons). Cheap (essentially free) - got a cheap triple core processor (another bundle at the Egg).
  • Cons: IT DOESN'T POST! The diagram in the book is incorrect (still wrong online) - the Power LED/switch/HDD light section is incorrect in the book - I have tried multiple combos, but the light won't light. The book does not match the silkscreen or the pin layout.

cpu not compatible

steve s., Newegg
4 October 2010
  • Summary: probably a good board for dual core machines but would go a different route for x4 or x6.
  • Pros: easy to use features goes together and fires up great
  • Cons: bought this in a barebones kit with amd phenom 9750x4 and at every startup it says cpu not compatible press f1 to continue after that all is fine? lots of threads on forums about this problem but no fix for it yet. even updated all drivers and bios and this does not help-be warned .
