5 out of 5 eggsHappy with 2 of them

Pros: Wanted a quality AMD MB that had OC options. Asus delivered! You can play around with different settings and save them to different "profiles." Awesome when you need to quickly switch between different OC settings or boot devices such as SSD1, SSD2, USB.

I bought 2 of these: one for a good budget AMD gaming rig and one for a FreeNAS server.

Cons: - No bios upgrade option for FX CPUs, still deserves 5/5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Always leering of buying an Asus mobo and having it be DOA. Thankfully both worked and are still going strong after 2.5+ years!

* Asus M4A87TD
* AMD Phenom II X4 955BE @ 3.5 GHz OC
* eVGA GTX 560 Ti w/ 448 (OC)
* 128 GB SSD
* Windows 7 Pro
* Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler

In 2014 upgraded to the Asus MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150. Went with Asus due to the strong overclocking support in the past.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Motherboard that could

Pros: Rock solid and stable. Compatible with multiple OS's. Very flexible configurations.

Cons: Quirky boot issue where sometimes it tries to use the external USB drive as its boot device and there's no way to turn that option off. You have to turn off the power to the USB drive and reboot.

Other Thoughts: I've done alot with this board. It's been my test platform for over 2 years and has had pretty much every OS loaded on it from Windows XP to Ubuntu to VMware ESX server and I can honestly say it's never thrown me a motherboard related error. Admittedly its never been made to overclock so I can't speak about its stability at higher speeds than what it was designed for. I really liked this board and if it supported AMD3+ I would have kept it.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Heh none really

Cons: From the first month started having blue screen issues. None of the auto settings seem to be stable for the hardware I installed. I manually set all the timings and frequencies to the current installed hardware. When manual settings were set system was stable for more than a hour or two at a time. I have tested all installed hardware on other machines without issue. Still having BSOD problems. I play World of Warcraft and cant even keep the game open 10minutes without getting the blue screen.

Other Thoughts: I have contacted ASUS in the past with no help to fix the problem. I have lacked the money to get it replaced so been dealing with the issue for almost 2 years now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry you are having issues with your computer build. If I may, I would like to help.

If possible, may I have the Windows Dump files please? I would need the error reports when the Bluescreens happened. Also, have you checked in Device Manager an see if the system is having conflicting hardware?

At you earliest convenience, please contact me through email, and we can discuss this case further. Within the message, please include the serial number of the motherboard and any troubleshooting steps tried. Your reference number for this case is 3105981.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed 1 year out of the box, ASUS support stinks!

Pros: Nice features. I bought 2 of these and 1 failed less than a year out of the box.

Cons: The board failed. It happens.... Being a shop owner i know this and am not blaming ASUS for the failure. With that being said.....ASUS support stinks in the worst way possible.

I called in for an RMA in may 2013 and got an rma number but was unable to send the board back before it expired. I called on sept 5, 2013 and got what i though was a new rma number. Turns out that the CSR sent me an email with the OLD rma number instead of generating me a new rma number. I sent the board with the expired RMA number not realizing that it was the old number.

I called in on sept 18, 2013 and was told they couldnt find my RMA. After asking for a supervisor 8 times (not exaggerating), i was finally transferred. The super told me that a new RMA was generated a few days prior. He gave me the new RMA and assured me that everything was smooth now. At this point ASUS has had the board for 8 days.

Today, sept 25, 2013 i called back in to check the status of the RMA. I was told yet again that they couldnt find the RMA number (the new rma number and service number). The csr put me on hold and conferred with his supervisor for 10 minutes. When he came back he told me that i had sent the motherboard to the wrong address!! I told him that i sent the board to the address in the PDF file attached to the email with the RMA number i was given on sept 6. He informed me that the CSR messed up and gave me the address to a different facility. *FACEPALM* I demanded a supervisor and demanded that a new board be sent to me immediately. He said he couldnt do that and that i needed to contact escalations. I just got done writing a long letter to esc. and now im here writing this review.

My advice to ANYONE buying ASUS products is: while the products are generally good, be aware that if you must RMA a product...expect major issues and runarounds. If you must RMA a product please contact them after you initially get the rma number to verify the rma as a whole, AT LEAST TWICE before you send it back. Also make sure if it's a motherboard....they gave you an indiana address to mail it to. If it is a california address...the CSR messed up...this is why you MUST contact them several times to verify the RMA before you mail it. Once you mail it back you are at their leisure and mercy. Asus's right hand doesnt have a clue what their left hand is doing so prepare for this when dealing with an RMA.

My last piece of advice is to bu from a different company with a better RMA/warranty reputation. This may be an isolated incident but it tells me everything i need to know about asus. I dont recommend them anymore.

Other Thoughts: I expect my next encounter over the phone to be yet another blunder on their behalf in which i will end up angry yet again. I have informed asus escalations that i fully expect a NEW board be mailed to me immediately for my troubles with their inept service. I will update this review and let yall know how it turned out.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sincerely, I am sorry for the customer service you have received thus far. Sending in a malfunctioning product, under warranty, should be a simple process, in which should include clear concise communication during the course of the RMA. It is both unfortunate and disappointing this did not happen. I can assure you that ASUS strives on having the best customer service possible. Moreover, I will make sure to notate this case to help improve our customer service in the future.

If you need any updates regarding the RMA and/or need further assistance, please let me know. Your reference number is 3051593.

1 out of 5 eggsDead already

Pros: Plenty sata and usb, pretty blue colors

Cons: Didn't even last a year. The case I used was well ventilated. The PSU is high quality. No idea what caused it to go tatas-up so fast. It was not a power surge, I have 2 other computers on the same power outlet and they are fine.

Other Thoughts: Well in my experience I really can't recommend this motherboard. Unless you like replacing motherboards in under a year?

1 out of 5 eggsGreat - until it's not

Pros: Great ASUS motherboard for the money.

Cons: Just stopped working.

Other Thoughts: Green LED is on, indicating power. It used to work fine. This was months ago. We've had this machine sitting around for a few months. I went to fire it up today and dead. Power supply is fine (tried on another PC). Unplugged/plugged everything, nada. Reset the bios - nada.

Going to see if ASUS can help me out here. Bought a ton of their stuff over the past 10 years.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We're sorry to hear about your experience with this motherboard. Given that you've tried another PSU (most likely cause), resetting BIOS (clear CMOS?), and unplug/plug components, please RMA the motherboard to us so our technician can test, repair or replace it as necessary. We apologize for the inconvenience. To RMA the motherboard, please use the online submittal form at: http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call us at 1-812-282-2787. Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: I've been using this mobo for two years now. Constant use too. Still works.

Was fairly easy to install and work with for my first build.

Good ports and options and whatnot for the price.

Cons: Never could get the USB3 ports on the back to work properly. Sometimes they work but most of the time they refuse to recognize my USB3 devices.

Minus one star for that.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Flawlessly does everything it's supposed to. Even started playing with some of the OC utilities recently.
Quite literally has more features & capacity than I use.

Cons: Had to manually set RAM to 1600, otherwise AUTO settings kept it at 1333. But runs perfectly fine there.

Other Thoughts: Just reaching 1 year using this board. Runs all my games well (as well as my GPU will let me) & has no issues in Windows.
Paired it with a Phenom II x4 955 and 8 Gb (2x4Gb) DDR3 1600.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent hardware

Pros: It has done everything I've asked of it flawlessly. Haven't touched any OC'ing features, aside from once or twice just to take a look.
Rock solid & utterly reliable.

Cons: Would prefer more than 3 audio ports on the back. My sound system uses all 3 ports, forcing me to use the front panel connection for my headset, but that is minor, not worth an egg.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks but won't run memory higher than 800mhz

Pros: It works except for the memory clock... which is more than what other people have gotten apparently.

Cons: Does NOT want to run RAM faster than 800mhz. Crashes, BSODs, refuses to start, etc, when RAM is clocked higher than 800 mhz.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

The M4A87TD/USB3 can support up to 4 x DIMM, Max. 16GB, DDR3 2000(overclocked)/1600/1333/1066 Hz memory. Please try use memory from the QVL at http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A87TDUSB3/#MSL or memory with similar specifications, and load BIOS defaults (F5). To continue support, please contact me at cl-benson@asus.com (reference #C1037-6775 in the subject line).
