Defective unit, initial BIOS won't work with RAM sticks over 2GB

Summary: The product didn't work when received and couldn't return it on time so I chose to make it work. After some repair on video, it worked with some borrowed, cheap 2GB RAM 1333MHz but couldn't handle any 4GB stick. Not a standard Kingston nor a hyperx red. None. Tried overclocking and setting the voltage for memory but it just turns on without showing any message (obviously, not showing BIOS either).
Good bang for the buck, but it has some raid quirks

Summary: This motherboard its not for the gaming geek its more on the middle range price, if you are an overclocking enthusiast with the idea of pushing your hardware to the limit look for something else, but this board gives you the hability to do some overcloking without taking it to the limits, it has the fast boot option as well that does not support wireless , it supports raid just fine (more on the software piece later).
Summary: The ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO Socket AM3/AMD 785G/4DDR3-1800+ is an excellent product. Little tight, but it is an ATX format. The only drawback I can find, and I can live with is... the PCI slots are too close to the Video slot (PCI Express) especially if you use an aftermarket card with a heat sink/fan. You lose one pci slot. Would have liked more PCI slots further away from the Video slot.
Summary: Good construction, fairly fast boot (but watch out for internal USB devices, that adds like a second for each device!!, features a-plenty. Only one 16x slot. Don't see the use for the 1x, maybe audio. But this one's audio seems robust; excited to try out the 10-channel. ExpressGate does NOT use wifi adapters - didn't realize that one. Dual channel support - this means get your RAM in pairs, and get all the same kind.
