2 out of 5 eggsA motherboard that is ok

Pros: Its fast and works

Cons: Lag, occaisionally freezes, really all i can say is a let down

Other Thoughts: If you had this you would replace this after a year

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your review. I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties with occasional freezes and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this experience may have caused. When do you experince lag and freezes? Make sure to reseat all your components and double check for loose power cords in your PC case. For the latest microcode revision for your CPU, make sure to download and install A85XM-A UEFI build version BIOS (6604) to enhance compatibility with some memory. You can locate the BIOS .cap file at our ASUS Online Help Desk: Extract the file to a fat formatted usb stick. Then navigate in bios to the tools menu and use the EZflash utility to do the flash. Let your system update the firmware as needed. Do not power down even if your system sits with a blank screen for 10 minutes or so. When updating your UEFI please make sure to wait for the firmware to update after the board restarts following the flash. This can take a couple of minutes after the board restarts. The board should be left alone during this process. If you need further technical information, feel free to contact me at

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Best Regards,
ASUS Customer Loyalty – US Support

3 out of 5 eggsI'm a little disappointed w/ ASUS

Pros: It's a nice board for the price. Even though something went wrong with the board on me, I would buy, again...

Cons: I updaded the Bios using their OS bios utility, 3/4 through the process pc froze up, I waited 20 mins to see if it would
come out of it. Moved the mouse and it was still froze, so I waited a few mins and still the same so I hit reset and when it booted, I got two short beeps, meaning CMOS error. I reset the CMOS with the jumper, tried it again, same result..I then removed the CMOS battery and used the jumper again..Same, called ASUS and they gave me the run around, told me to test the RAM again, and Jumper, and Battery yet again, told me to leave it for two hours, I did..Then I was told the 550W PSU was too small. Not for an A8 w/ onboard V & A..I was hung up on once, because I mistook the letter O for a 0 in the s/n..4 phone calls and two days later, I was issued an RMA..

Other Thoughts: I have been buying ASUS boards exclusively for well over ten years and I didn't appreciate their rudeness..Don't make folks jump through hoops, if the board is RMA'ed and their is nothing wrong, charge a diag fee and send it back on the customers dime..No need for rudeness..

4 out of 5 eggsASUS A85XM-A

Pros: I like the features of this board, for being a small board it is sure packed with featuires.

Cons: The first board failed to post so I had to send it back to newegg for replacement which took a week from my build. However the replacement worked and I am now back on track. The on-board video would not integrate with the APU. Had to use one of my old cards (an overclocked 5770) to get the APU to work.

Other Thoughts: This board seems short to me but that presents no problems.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Value

Pros: Decent Value
Reasonable Appearance
Okay features/software

Cons: Limited Overclocking Capabilities

Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a good board. It has the necessary components to build a functional, budget-oriented PC.

As this is a board for use with an APU, I was looking forward to boosting the APU's performance via overclocking. I found both the UEFI and included software to be lacking in these capabilities, which is the reason for the 4-egg review.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mobo

Pros: Great motherboard, easy set up...much quicker than an MSI mobo that I had set up with an A10-6800k earlier. No complaints other than the AMD apu's are really not good for much gaming (at least nothing recent).

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: Asus quality...I routinely am impressed with Asus hardware. Especially motherboards.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: Perfect. no problems. Went together easy. The only thing that is a bit different is the bios and trying to get it to boot to the DVD drive, takes playing with all the boot options. Comes with the ASUS or the UEFI

Cons: NONE

1 out of 5 eggsHORRIBLE! DO NOT BUY

Pros: Nothing.

Cons: The motherboard is extremly flimsy, and weak. Also, the BIOS only recognizes 6GB out of 8GB RAM. ASUS Tech support sucks (They hung up the phone twice!) I have to remove the battery every time to reboot. I WILL NEVER BUY FROM ASUS AGAIN! STAY AWAY!
