4 out of 5 eggsASUS redeemed

Pros: ASUS was prompt and paid for the shipping to their shop in Fresno.
Mark was my techie and he investigated the board and found glitches, so he sent me a whole new board. It POSTs and BIOS recognizes all drives and RAM. Total turnaround time: about 2 weeks. Mark emailed me every day and let me know what he was doing. From now on I will just pay for the insurance on stuff like this. That way all I gotta do is send back the board, tell them it's no good, and get a new one.

Cons: Windows 7 refuses to let me complete the install; but I figure that is more of a Microsoft issue.

Other Thoughts: Don't wait past 30 days to set up your build and test your mobo: you will miss the Newegg RMA window. I'm just lucky that ASUS was as
good as they were about it.

1 out of 5 eggsASUS Customer Service Sucks

Pros: VGA works

Cons: Beware ASUS does not care after they have your money

HDMI DVI will not output a signal

Have been in contact with ASUS their customer service sucks.

Two weeks and no replacement board

They are doing everything not to replace their defective board.

ASUS boards cost more than MSI or ECS and when they fail you get the run around from ASUS

Spend your money elsewhere

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsPersistant Firmware issues, max 1333 RAM

Pros: It works, and the BIOS update utility is a dream.

Cons: UEFI does not conform to the standard put out by Intel.
Linux cannot access the UEFI through any means.
The mobo ignores explicit RAM speed settings.
The mobo does not run RAM at advertized settings.

Other Thoughts: My problems are not unique.

UEFI is broken, regardless of BIOS revision.

Despite the mobo seeing my RAM's advertized speed (Trident X @ 2133MHz) and doing everything I can to make it run at that speed, the settings are blaitently ignored.

I will be RMA'ing and doing what I can to change to another vendor. A mistake or two may be expected, but anything this obious and severe means systematic testing and quality assurance failures.

1 out of 5 eggsmobo is DOA

Pros: good looking board;

Cons: Will not POST.

Other Thoughts: Mobo is supposedly FM2+ compatible, but will not work with my new
AMD A10-7700 K APU/CPU. LED for stby pwr is on, but no POST.
Due to my own tardiness I have passed the Newegg 30 day window..ASUS site is unresponsive..... so now I'm stuck with a dead board!!? What the hey!

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I apologize for the issues you having with the motherboard. If the motherboard has an older BIOS installed, you should be able to resolve the issue by updating the BIOS of the motherboard. You can find the download here: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/A88XMA/.

Should you require any assistance, please contact me through email. I am here to help. 3583396.

2 out of 5 eggsKaveri + Win 7 = No HDMI or DVI

Pros: I hear it sort of works with Windows 8.1

Cons: I bought this to pair with a Kaveri APU. I needed it for a dual monitor work station. Unfortunately, with Windows 7 64-bit, the HDMI and DVI do not work with the Kaveri APU. It doesn't even see them as connected. I put in an older APU and everything ran swimmingly.

I have tried all available BIOS versions and Catalyst drivers. I tried going through ASUS support and the only thing I got out of them was "our engineers are aware of the problem." The AMD forums show that this is a common issue with this board.

After waiting a month and getting nothing, I couldn't wait any longer and bought a video card to use instead. This completely negated the purpose of getting the APU in the first place.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Within the email, please include the serial number of the motherboard, any troubleshooting steps tried, and your reference number (3537012).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Easy to install and it booted and posted the first time I ran it. It is using an A6 Richland APU and 16 GB of Crucial Ballistix Sport XT. I have played Skyrim on high settings and it ran smooth. Bio Shock Infinite is running on very high. And later on I can still upgrade to Kaveri APU.

Cons: The UEFI did not like my CRT Monitor, but it did fine when I hooked up my Samsung Series 4 32" HDTV.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this board, not only for the quality but for the upgrade Option later on.

1 out of 5 eggsNice Little DOA

Pros: Nice looking quality asus board

Cons: I always use ASUS because of their quality but this time, they fell short. I cant get the board to post with A10 7700K. I have swapped everything out other than the apu and we all know those are not normally bad. Newegg was awesome as always. Time to look for a different board.

2 out of 5 eggsHDMI DOA

Pros: Micro ATX, Looks Good.

Cons: My board arrived with a defective HDMI port.

Other Thoughts: Everything else seems to work fine but I have to return it. Already bought a different option. First ASUS board in years and this was not a good experience.
