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
Functional
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!

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Easy to install. Booted up fine the first time. UEFI BIOS is great to work with.

I bought this for a budget build for a family member. It took the Athlon X2 Richland 370k processor no problem. Turns out it had the latest BIOS revision, so I didn't need to flash it to get the processor to work with the mobo. I thought I would have, seeing as how it was approved for use with the latest revision and I was thinking that the mobo was shipping with an older rev level. Thankfully it wasn't.

Cons: None so far. I just installed it, and everything seems to be working fine.

Other Thoughts: I tried to do this budget build, while keeping relatively good components. I had some old components laying around that I wanted to use up, so this worked out very well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo for the money

Pros: Works, performs as should. Backed up with an Asus warranty!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This motherboard went into a customer's computer so I haven't been able to test it out extensively. However, the customer is happy and so am I! 2 months in and no complaints.
