Asus motherboard with defective HDMI

James H. Mansfield, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Purchased one these (ASUS M5a78L-M/USB3 for home theater. Unfortunately HDMI port does not pass through audio. Does video only. Returned for a second one. Same problem. ASUS technical support admits it is defective. They say it is a defective controller, however they have no solution. Maybe some of the older boards had different components and worked correctly but current ones with 1801 Bios as of early 2014 do not work. Look elsewhere if you plan to use HDMI.

Outstanding Performance vs Price

R. Heishman "Rob Heishman", Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I was impressed but this board for its sheer performance even with a lower end 965 black. It made that processor run like the day i bought it. It was out performing 6 core systems i had on the desk. Hooked it up with 8 core and its smoking. This board can handle a lot and it handles it with ease. The company was awesomely fast and it arrived in mint condition although the box needed a bit of work.

Great little MOBO!

falcongirl2u, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The difference between this MOBO and the M5A78L-M LX Plus is that this board supports up to 32 GB, the LX only supports 8 GB. That may seem like a lot of memory, but I remember when 10 MB was a lot of memory and people thought they would never use that much. I own a small OEM build company and to stand by my warranties, I have to have rock solid components. I have around 30 builds out there with this MOBO and they run great.

reliability and longevity

  • Pros: ECC support, ASUS reliabilty and longevity
  • Cons: Placement of PCIE X1 slot causes boards placed in it to conflict with the northbridge heat sink, unless they are so short that they don't reach it.

Chipset DVD does not work with Windows 8

Duha, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Tried to install the drivers for this board using included DVD (even in compatibility mode). No can do. ASUS hasn't answered my email. I had to find various drivers from OEM (such as video). Board appears to work well, but my drivers may not be the best.
