  • Summary: The Asus M4A78-HTPC/RC is a very capable motherboard in its own right, i.e. if we ignore the remote and audio extras. It has plenty of features including HDMI, S/PDIF, and eSATA, and its heart, the tried and true HD 3200 IGP, is fully capable of high definition video playback. With SpeedFan, one can fully control three fans connected to the board independently, or if you prefer the set-it-and-forget-it option, the board's automatic fan control system works well too.
  • Pros: Low power consumption, Independent control of up to 3 fans, Feature-rich, Remote works well
  • Cons: Questionable audio features, Remote software lacking in capability, Restrictive BIOS; does not allow undervolting

Asus M4A78T-E (AM3) Motherboard

11 March 2009
  • Summary: The performance of the Asus M4A78T-E (AM3) motherboard is surprisingly good. It came out on top during most of our benchmarks, and competed very well against the Gigabyte MA790FXT-UD5P motherboard. Initally, I thought the 790GX chipset is a budget solution for mainstream users ... but I was wrong.
  • Pros: - Very Good performance, - Support AMD's new Phenom II X4 (AM3) Processors, - Support DDR3 memory, - Asus EPU, - Supports CrossfireX, - Onboard graphics via 790GX, with HDMI DVI and D-Sub connectors
  • Cons: - It's hard not to think of Intel, - Not compatible with AM2+ processors
