Summary: This is an excellent mainboard. The shipping was espedient and I would buy from these dealers ahain without hesitation. Technically I had a bit of trouble getting a necessary networking upgrade up and running, the included software had to be reinstalled each time, This was taken care of...
Summary: I do not have an AMD APU installed. I have an Nvidia GeForce 630GT installed.
Pros: I have had this board up and running for well over a year now. It dual boots Win XP (only for some old prog's) and Ubuntu 14.04LTS. It is flawless in both.

Summary: Nice motherboard f2a88xup4 for the money its good for on buget an will save u in loung run with all futures it has to offer .its in my nzxt s340 case with nvidia gtx 770 reference gddr5 an works my amd a10 6800k good for gaming on buget
Cons: Not windows 10 ready and no drivers and utilities work.The 7870k I installed said it worked with the latest bios but ran incredibly hot and was throttled..poor bios..it's weak.ram was not stable besides 1600 MHz.Avoid.
Summary: Well designed, working good so far, after a month of installation. The UEFI Bios interface is not as rich as some others I have seen but it is not a deal breaker. It terms of "bang for the buck" it is a great deal. I will no discuss other technical features/specifications.
Summary: If I can figure out why the boot option is not working then it will be perfect. Newegg - please remove my previous review as it was not the motherboard, but a hard drive.
Pros: I successfully installed both Windows 10 Preview and Ubuntu. My previous install had a bad hard disk drive.
Cons: Currently, when booting from a DVD or Ubuntu I can't select any menu option. The computer doesn't respond - even with a wired keyboard. I wonder if it is a configuration option that I am missing. The boot menu simplify selects the default option.
