  • newegg DIGI+ VRM Digital Power Design Asus motherboards using the Intel H61 chipset employ precise digital voltage regulation for the CPU, called DIGI+ VRM (Voltage Regulation Modules) digital power design. The CPU voltage and VRM frequency are adjusted via either carefully developed automated modes, or by using user-defined profiles. The effect is that DIGI+ VRM technology ensures greater energy efficiency and the best possible PC stability. Boosted by world-renowned Asus quality, it creates an ideal computing platform for a diverse range of applications, from gaming to multimedia or office work and heavy multitasking. Engineered and tested to assure unmitigated performance, Asus H61 boards with DIGI+ VRM remain efficient and stability, for reliable application in every scenario.
  • newegg High-Definition Visual Enjoyment Enjoy high-quality visuals with a digital display monitor via HDMI or DVI output. High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a set of digital video standards that delivers mulit-channel audio and uncompressed digital video for full HD 1080p visuals through a single cable. Supporting HDCP copy protection such as HD DVD and Blu-ray discs, HDMI provides you with the highest quality home theater experience.
  • newegg 100% All High-Quality Solid Capacitors Asus high-quality solid capacitors ensure a 5,000-hour lifespan – equivalent to 2.5 times longer than traditional capacitors. All capacitors pass testing under temperatures as high as 105 degrees, and meet Japanese industrial standards to provide excellent durability and enhanced thermal capacity.
  • newegg Extra Durable Stainless Steel Back I/O The motherboard's back I/O panels are made from strong, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance its anti-corrosion properties. That’s why Asus stainless steel back I/O panels have a usage life three times longer compared to ordinary panels.
  • newegg Asus Exclusive USB 3.0 Boost Asus USB 3.0 Boost supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) standard for major time savings when moving large files such as HD videos. It accelerates data transfers by up to 1.7x when compared to normal USB 3.0 speeds, leading the industry in USB 3.0 transmission speeds.
  • newegg Extra SATA 6Gbps Supports Asus provides extra SATA 6.0 Gbps ports with enhanced scalability, faster data retrieval, and double the bandwidth of current bus systems.

2 out of 5 eggsrandom freezing

Pros: price

Cons: I am using G Skill memory from the ASUS QVL (recommended 7-8-7-24 timing at 1.6V). When I change to these memory timings the system will not boot. I am unable to adjust the DRAM voltage - I have spent hours trying to find a way - the manual and website are useless.
I updated the bios to the latest, The DOS BIOS tool from the ASUS website (for 64 bit WIndows 7 ) will not run on 64 bit Windows 7, lol. The EZ Flash motherboard BIOS utility will only display top level folders on the drives - you can't dig into a folder to find the BIOS files - I had to create a new folder on the C: drive and copy the new bios to that folder before the utility could load it.

Other Thoughts: If the User Guide paper was softer, I could use it for toilet paper.

I have done several builds over the last 10+ years. I always used Gigabyte or MSI boards. The MSI motherboard manuals and utilities are magnitudes better than the ASUS. I'll probably try to RMA this for an MSI board, or just smash it with a hammer then burn it. The time I have wasted on this build is worth way beyond the cost of another board.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your review.

I am sorry you are having issues with your motherboard. If I may, I would like to help. Please send your full specifications (part list), BIOS installed, along with any troubleshooting steps you tried thus far, and I will be able to help further. Your reference number is 2941491.

Kind regards,

ASUS Customer Loyalty

3 out of 5 eggsordered 2, 1 had bad USB controller

Pros: really good price, nice bios, perfect for a small workstation build that i made

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry the board was defective and you had to RMA it. I am glad, however, that you will be getting another board shortly. Should the new system have any issues, please let me know, and I will be happy to help.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Nearly everything you'd want from a mATX board
- Intel GPU
- Realtek Audio
- Memory overclocking

Cons: The HUGE con on this board and the reason I docked it an egg is there's no USB3 Front Panel header plug. I spent a solid ten minutes staring at the USB3 plugs on the back and searching the board for a front panel plug going... really? I nearly returned it, but found an adapter I had lying around, and thank goodness for a third panel header/plug and the fact my client will never notice the difference.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this because I needed the HDMI in the mATX form factor. I blindly overlooked the fact there isn't a USB3 front panel header/plug which I use for a USB3 media reader on every build. Solid board, but won't be buying this one again.
