Fast Boot

Instant OS Login

ASUS has released new hardware and software designs to shorten system boot-up time to two seconds for a smoother user experience that removes annoying delays under Windows 8, and even previous versions of Windows. Faster system boot and restart means Windows starts quicker and higher efficiency. No more waiting around.


ASUS Boot Setting

Multi-Startup Options

Thanks to ASUS Windows 8 hardware optimization, ASUS Boot Setting provides better flexibility in customizing your PCs startup process. You can enter the BIOS directly with one click through a user-friendly interface, and quickly select your preferred system boot up method: either get to the OS in seconds or opt for regular boot up. Whatever your choice, settings are saved and persistent, with no need to choose every time you power on.


A Dedicated Button to Access the BIOS Directly

Designed for those requiring frequent BIOS access, users can easily enter the BIOS automatically when the PC is on standby power with the simple press of a button. It saves you time during boot-up from having to repeatedly press the DEL key. Convenience and ease at its best!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard functionality

Pros: Excellent documentation with great graphics. Lots of I/O capability. BIOS is great with drag/drop mouse control.

Cons: Front USB port nonfunctional. Rather than take things apart again and send it in for a replacement, i'm going to use a powered USB hub to bring the USB out to the front.

If it weren't for that problem, I would have given it 5 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall great quality - not a lot of space

Pros: Used this motherboard on an open case system and it works great. No problems so far after several months of heavy operation. Make sure to just follow instructions carefully and install the driver software the ASUS provides with the motherboard.

Cons: Expansion ports are very close together, so think ahead before you buy a motherboard this small. I can't complain in this area since I went with the Micro standard anyway. Just be aware that you might not have room for a lot of expansion.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: Nice size board. I liked the ease of firmware update and BIOS menu.....

Cons: This board at start-up keeps getting a blue screen stating that it is accumulating error info and will restart when done. It also states in the message to go on-line to determine what the error message means. I'm running Win 8.1 and this happens every time I turn the computer on... After the second and sometimes the third re-booth, it works fine..

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Very good motherboard. Came with a great bios that didn't need updated, and was very easy to install.

Cons: I didn't really have any except one.

It comes with 4 sata III ports, but 3 of them are different than what I have usually seen. I had to look carefully the second time so I didn't miss anything

To be honest, I kind of freaked out when I saw that there was the one that was facing up, instead of to the side.

Other Thoughts: Great price, and very good performance.

4 out of 5 eggsF2A85-M Pro

Pros: Easy Set Up

Cons: Internet Connection Issues

Other Thoughts: What is odd about this board and it took quite a while to troubleshoot it is that when running Windows 7 and iTunes each time that I disconnect an iPhone 5 or iTouch from iTunes I loose my internet connection and a reboot corrects it, must be an odd usb issue but it is driving me crazy. I no longer connect my iPhone to the Windows PC but charge it on another ASUS homebuilt PC running Linux Mint. when required to download updates on Windows PC I'm forced to reboot as soon as I eject the iphone.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks, with some quirks.

Pros: Wasn't dead, appealing color scheme, multiple USB 3.0 ports and video outputs.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm not putting this under con as it's more an issue of Windows (and I guess myself as the PC doesn't have a DVD drive). I figured I would share for anyone else who might happen upon my scenario.
During installation of Windows 7 via a USB stick, the installation would have an error reading the USB. Turns out unplugging it and then choosing to continue with the install and then plugging the stick back in fixed the issue.
Also with Windows 7, the correct drivers for the USB 3.0 ports had to be manually downloaded from the ASUS site as a 1GB chipset driver set (I assume they were on the disk, but being Micro ATX many might also not be using a DVD drive).

Once that all was done, everything on the board worked and ran smoothly.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking well with XenServer 6.2

Pros: Worked out of the box with XenServer 6.2.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Using this board with an A8-5600K Trinity APU in a small home lab. I have no complaints with the performance.
