1 out of 5 eggsBad NIC

3 out of 5 eggsNot sure whats going on

Pros: It has a lot of features for the money.everything turned on when I set it up.

Cons: It does not like my usb wi-fi adapters. i have 2 that i have used in the past-both seem to have the speed throttled. I have had issues with games crashing/freezing my PC. When it crashes and i rebooot - often times i have to restart a second time as the USB keyboard or mouse do not work. I thought this was due to running windows 8.1 but it does the same with windows 8. I have tried for a week searching for solutions/changing settings/updating drivers and bios. I am returning this board and I am going with a different brand. I like asus. this was my first asus MB purchase however, and will probably be my last.

1 out of 5 eggsa bad board

Pros: good brand maybe?

Cons: The fans setting in bios is just a joke .
The screw on the corner is too close to the ram slot , which makes it very hard to be installed.
paying 60 bucks to buy an old board like this bad design, is way too much
And be careful , this board doesn't support linux very well , you would see a lots of funny error message on the screen , during booting linux .

2 out of 5 eggsVery loud fan control does nothing

Pros: None: it was supposed to be for an HTPC/steambox but it's way to loud.

Cons: The UEFI settings to control the fan speed do nothing. My fans run at full speed regardless of if I pick quiet or turbo. I tried updating to the latest BIOS version(BIOS 0706), but the problem remains. My previous mobo ran my fans at very low speeds unless I was doing something intensive like encoding a video.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to build an HTPC, or steambox stay away from this mobo until they release a bios update that fixes the fan speed

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry you are having issues with the motherboard.

If you are not getting the desired fan speed using the auto settings in the BIOS, I would recommend manually adjusting them. To change your fan settings manually, while in the BIOS, go into Advance Settings and find the Monitor tab; once there, scroll down to the fan you would like to change; select it, and from there, you will be able to change the speed of your system's fans manually. For more information regarding this, please see page 2-12 of the user manual. Alternately, you could also change the speed of your computer's fans by using Fan Xpert within the AI Suite program.

Should you need assistance in this regard, please let me know through email. Your reference number for this case is 3090779.
