ICON Loading...

The K8V-VM from Asus is a great way to give your system a boost. Swap out your old Socket 754 motherboard and re-install your processor and DDR memory, or add a new Athlon 64 processor. The PCI-e x16 slot lets you add a more powerful video card for Vista and today's newer games.

ASUS keeps you connected. There are 4 USB 2.0 ports on the back and headers for up to 4 additional ports. A Fast Ethernet port gives you a speedy connection to your network and broadband internet connection. The K8V-VM supports AMD Cool 'n' Quiet! Technology, which adjusts CPU voltage and frequency for a cool and quiet environment, no matter the load.

The BIOS is no longer a scary place. The CrashFree BIOS2 lets you restore a corrupted BIOS from the support CD. Updates are just as easy with EZ Flash, you no longer need a DOS boot disk to do the job since you can update from in the BIOS setup menu. With this set of features, Asus offers a great way to kick things up in your virtual world!

5 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied

Pros: Worked out of the box, cheap!, nice layout and pretty quick for an older system.

Cons: CPUs are very expensive if you want dual core for what you get.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to build my mother-in-law a new system for xmas on the cheap. I canibilized two older systems and bought this mobo and a new micro case. I managed to build a very nice quick system for little money and she is very happy with her xmas gift.
I would buy this again.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to deal with BIOS. Both in configuring and upgrading.

Cons: Not well supported in linux systems.
Might as well ignore the PCI x16 E slot. Incompatible with all but a few video cards. (And they don't make those anymore, you'll have to scrounge.)

1 out of 5 eggsPOOR Support from ASUS

Pros: Stable with XP I guess

Cons: ASUS has no support for VISTA with this board and upon calling their support team I was met with quite an attitude. I usually dont review products but im COMPLETLEY dissapointed.

5 out of 5 eggsS3 video

Pros: ASUS is always good with S3 onboard video. You have to download new S3 driver from S3 web site for XP and Vista in order to run it right.

Cons: S3 resolution cannot go higher than 1600

Other Thoughts: What do you expect from a dying out hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsLemon

Pros: None for this board.

Newegg gets kudos for standing behind it.

Cons: This MB rejected all of the approved RAM I tried with it. Even Corsair. After finding some RAM that would allow it to get past POST, everything from freezes in WinXP to BSODs loop/reboots. Asus TS was useless, suggesting swapping RAM mfgs and slots.

Other Thoughts: I've used Asus boards extensively in the past 7 years, but the last two Asus boards have left a bitter taste in my mouth. Adios, Asus.

2 out of 5 eggsStrike 1

Pros: looks nice

Cons: Would not post. Had to order new memory. I hope that is the reason for not posting. Was using 2 sticks of cosair PC 2700 333DDR , which according to the manual is acceptable. So I bought some Kingston chips KVR400X64C3A/1G.
I will keep you posted.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board, as usual ASUS makes great motherboards, easy to install fired right up, manual good and detail which is typical for ASUS

Cons: Layout on the board a little tight even for a mini atx. PCI-E video card actually sits over one of the pci slots of which there are only two.

Other Thoughts: happy with the product, for the price you can't beat it!
