Summary: Would it have killed them to use a standard DVI connector?
Pros: Turns on and off. Pci-e x16 slot. Has better drivers than my previous asus board had.
Cons: FOXCON name on some of the jacks. FOXCON has designed their boards in the past to self destruct if you run any os besides windows. (when loading linux on some older foxcon boards, the bios gets corrupted. foxcon is somewhat hostile to linux.) I cannot believe asus would put crrapp like that on th...
Summary: I sent ASUS 3 different RMA's each time w/o any follow up from anyone. the last time bot sent email and was sent a customer survey. Been emailing one person from there that I got from Newegg that works for ASUS. he told me to submit my info and since Dec 12th no response since.
Pros: -Small form -Has nice bios with over-clock features
Cons: -GPU over heats and Mobo shuts down -Battery craddle flimsy and was shipped to me snapped off already -No VGA out and DVI is the one without 4 holes around the slot hole. I think its called DVI-D, and is nearly impossible to find a DVI-D to VGA.
Cons: HDMI is primary DVI won't work as primary. HDMI with Monitor reduce the view area. big 2inch black frame formed. Unlocking generate too much heat you can not keep system in cabinate. Very good air flow required. Only 8GB ram supported.
Summary: I was pretty excited about this board and overall it was a nice little board, lots of extra software too. The NB just ran too hot. I ended up going with a ZOTAC 890GX, which I am very happy with, plus has an extra SATA slot.
Pros: Lots of features. Bluetooth. Takes SO-DIMMS. Lots of BIOS features. USB3.
Cons: The northbridge on this board runs really hot. Things like watching videos and causing the CPU utilization to rise, it started shutting down daily. The northbridge overheat protection was kicking in. I ended up RMAing it.
