Pros: Cheap
PCI E 3.0
USB 3.0 headers as well as rear ports
4 DIMM slots for RAM

Cons: Not Z87

Other Thoughts: This was a great first motherboard for me. I'm looking to overclock now so I will be getting rid of it but I haven't had any issues with it. Its a very solid board with a lot of great features.

4 out of 5 eggsAsus B85M-G

Pros: Very nice motherboard for the price, runs really well, surprized to see the newer "fancier" Bios with this board, ran without a hitch, would recommend to a friend.

Cons: Not enough fan plugs on motherboard but there never are on micro ATX boards, I/O Shield fit awkwardly, may just be the case being used though, Annd the labeling on the motherboard didnt make a whole lot of sense on why it was labeled how it was on where the plugs go but matching the pins is a pretty straightforward process.

Other Thoughts: Great budget board

3 out of 5 eggsYou can find a better board for the price

Pros: - Inexpensive mATX board.

- Decent amount of USB ports including one USB 3.0.

- Nice, clean, easy to navigate UEFI BIOS interface.

- Pretty good layout considering the size of the board and what's technically possible.

Cons: - Flat out awful on-board audio quality especially over HDMI. This is really one of the biggest cons of the board as I'll have to buy a PCI x1 sound card. I really can't say enough for how bad the audio quality is. ASUS really dropped the ball on this one. I understand the B85 chipset is on the low end but there's really no excuse for this. Okay, enough...

- Serious I/O lag. Quite frequently when my PC is sitting idle and I go to click on the start menu (or do anything) the computer locks up for about 10 seconds before resuming normal operations. Very inconvenient. For example, I have a WD Raptor as the hard drive my OS is installed to. After the PC has been idle for a few minutes and I grab the mouse to open Firefox or Windows explorer it locks up. Then I hear the HDD spin up before resuming normally. Not sure if this is something with the I/O on the budget chipset or what. Even with the Windows power profile set to perfomance this happens. Didn't have this problem using the same drive on my last board. Not sure if this is due to the budget chipset or not.

Other Thoughts: The two main issues of slow I/O and poor audio quality are a deal breaker for me. For another $20-$30 you can get a quality Z87 based mATX. I'm probably going to order one of the MSI Z87 boards and sell this one. Too bad, live and learn.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: I was skeptical getting a board other than a z87, but this time around I was on a tight budget. I was not disappointed with this board. It works phenomenally. The UEFI bios is very good. I mostly use this motherboard to game and watch movies. The micro atx form factor paired with a small case can make this computer great for taking over to a buddies house and gaming. I'm looking in to a few cases because at the moment I got this motherboard in my old full tower 400r which now has a lot of vacant space.

Cons: The only thing I can think about (mainly my fault) was how the motherboard booted with the intel hd igpu graphics and I had to search a little bit in the bios to use my discrete card.

And the Asus Q connector wasnt included, but for this price I wasn't expecting it.

Other Thoughts: Great budget motherboard if you are willing to sacrafice a few features. ASUS really gives you good quality on all their products wether they are ROG, Sabertooth or budget mainstream. Impressive.

5 out of 5 eggsMB works great!

Pros: Easy to setup, flawless operation. No problems with the board once you get the latest firmware on it.

Cons: The board didn't work with my Nvidia 780 video card at first, but firmware fixed that issue (they should ship the board with current firmware installed)...

5 out of 5 eggssolid

Pros: Installed, plugged in and works. No issues

Cons: Software support CD has a lot of unneeded stuff and installing just the needed items is not simple. You have to go through each item (CPU driver, audio driver, ethernet driver, etc) individually, or install everything.

5 out of 5 eggssolid board

Pros: Board went together fine in a micro atx slim box, everything is well laid out and labeled (actually didnt need book for front panel headers). Bios is simple, xmp works with it.

Cons: None really come to mind other than pc speaker lets out a very short beep on post every time you start it up

Other Thoughts: Initially got the 1 long 2 short beep when i fired it up it didnt like the seating on the first memory slot. Reseated both and all has been well since. Note: only one side of the dimm slots opens, dont try to break the other trying to open the end near the pci3.0 slot

3 out of 5 eggsOnboard Video Issues

Pros: Great budget board with many features. Came with HDMI, DVI & VGA connectors onboard. Many internal connectors to accommodate most users. Easy to install!

Cons: Bad onboard video. Works 50% of time then goes to permanent sleep almost immediately. If your planning on using this board I would suggest buying a video card. I could not resolve the issue and I don't care to waste my time calling ASUS. Since I am using a graphics card, this is not a major issue, because it solved the issue immediately. ASUS should fix this issue as most may want to use the onboard with these new Haswell processor from Intel.

Other Thoughts: Not much more to say. Since a gpu was placed on the pci-e 3.0, it works as it should. Take my advice or RMA this one. I would go for a better chipset than this one, but a budget build is a budget build. I took off two eggs and should have knocked off 3, but an easy fix...who really uses onboard video anyways ;)

Manufacturer Response:


Thank you for your review.

I am sorry the onboard video card is malfunctioning. Our motherboards have a very low failure rate, and it is uncommon for these kind of issues to happen. When using the onboard video, did you make sure to install the latest CPU drivers for the computer? This may fix the issues you are having with your computer build.

If the issue still persists and you would like to have the motherboard looked at under warranty, please let me know, and I will be happy to help. Your reference number is 3061185.

For support information, please visit For service, visit For motherboard warranty, visit!Motherboard%20Warranty/c1c20; Refurbished products/accessories:!refurbished-warranty/c16us. For RMA status, visit:

Thank you, and have a great day!
