Solid motherboard

Larry R., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Summary: Very pleased with my purchase. ASUS handled out of spec components and never failed...
  • Pros: Very nice. Well laid out and overclocking is either automated or manual via the ASUS tool.
  • Cons: Two quibbles. One the manual doesn't mention that you have to close the loop on the power button circuit. I thought it was a short duration. Second the BIOS update tool is not well done. It never worked automatically for me. I had to run it myself.

Worked great for 11 months

Dwayne N., Newegg
7 July 2012
  • Pros: It was a very easy install, no problems posting, never overheated even when really working it hard. I thought I had a winner compared to the other buyers who had issues.
  • Cons: 11 months down the road the on board lan fails. There goes my theory of getting a winner. The only reason I give it 2 eggs is because it worked fine for 11 months. Is 11 months the magic number? Let's see how much trouble it will be to get it replaced

Nothing but ASUS

Blaze B., Newegg
29 November 2011
  • Summary: I have been building computers for 15+ years and ASUS is by far my first choice for a solid reliable motherboard. It is the only motherboard that consistently outlasts the other hardware.
  • Pros: Great features, solid motherboard. Unlocked 4th core of AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana with press of 1 button. Easy to overclock for maximum performance or tune for energy efficiency.
  • Cons: It doesn't make me lunch.

Great board, bad bundle

Casey S., Newegg
28 November 2011
  • Summary: Neither I, nor Newegg apparently did their due diligence to ensure interoperability between these two products before bundling them. I should probably know better than to trust a retailer to get that completely right, but Newegg has always been a step above everyone else for a long time in my book.
  • Pros: This board is a great starting point for an overhaul of my desktop, particularly on a budget. All the extra features ASUS throws in make it an excellent contender. This product would easily rank 4 or 5 eggs and I would gush about it for the full 1000 character count if I didn't have the issue below.
  • Cons: Honestly, the bundle deal I got is the only reason I've rated this board so poorly. The CPU I bought with this board (with an FX-4100 Zambezi) doesn't work with it. I haven't tried flashing the BIOS to see if that'd add in the support, as I do not have another AM3 CPU lying around, but I have beg...

Come on Newegg!

Aaron R., Newegg
25 November 2011
  • Pros: Can't tell yet...
  • Cons: Purchased this board along with an AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz processor since it was a combo deal from newegg. It doesn't appear this board is even compatible with this processor. I can't get the board to make a sound when power is turned on. Tried multiple power supplies thinking that may have b...

  • Pros: Recent chipset many cools ASUS utilities... support 125W CPU mATX
  • Cons: That mobo freaked me out! Doesn't want to boot with 2x4GB corsair xms3, not even entering the BIOS !!! Finally got all working after updating bios and a bit of tweaking in the memory timing and voltages... wished to have 4 DIMM spaces...

Mess Up on Newegg

Anonymous, Newegg
23 November 2011
  • Summary: Newegg, do you have techs who put this stuff together? Someone does not know what they are doing. Maybe they just missed that detail just like I did before I suggested the person to buy it. Heck, I thought it was a good deal. Turns out it was bad.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Are you kidding Newegg? I picked out this motherboard put together as a combo that I was going to put together for a family member. He brought to my attention that this board, and the FX AMD Zambezi AM3+ processor that was supposed to be a combo buy, the cpu doesn't even match this board. It's AM...

Great Budget Board

Justin S., Newegg
15 October 2011
  • Summary: Haven't tried the core unlocker yet, but I planned from the get-go to use a spare Athlon II x2 250 in this board so there's nothing that I could hope to unlock, but from what I've heard from people with other ASUS boards is that they're on the better side of luck with unlocking cores.
  • Pros: Plenty of Headers for Case USB ports and/or Card readers, and I'm glad they didn't skip putting the IDE port on this board, it let me use an odd-ball OEM IDE Blu-Ray reader drive and still attach six drives to use this as a combo HTPC and Network Storage PC. The 880G Chipset comes with the ATI Ra...
  • Cons: Having only 2 DIMMs available on this board isn't worth knocking an egg off of its rating, however for a budget board or an HTPC setup, its not as much of a con as it would be if this were your primary computer. I just happened to have an extra 2x1GB set of RAM that would have been nice to pop on...
