1 out of 5 eggsFirst Asus Board Failure

Pros: Quad Core APU competitive with older Quad Core CPUs. Fits in a light weight ATX case that will not fit full sized ATX boards. It failed before I sold it to a customer...

Cons: BIOS failed after 3 and a half months. CrashFree BIOS 3 Utility does nothing to recover it. Hitting F2 as instructed results in nothing but a black screen. And waiting for it for a couple hours makes no difference.

Other Thoughts: This is the one and only Asus board I have had fail on me - either motherboards OR daughter boards. Without the ability to open setup, the system is stuck in this order: HDD, Optical Drive, USB Drive. Therefore the OS cannot be changed because the PC cannot boot from DVD. Nor can I change it to USB first to have it boot from USB fob to recover the BIOS. Disconnecting the hard drive just results in "operating system not found" instead of recovery from the support disc as the manual states it may be.

1 out of 5 eggsBad

Pros: Small, easy to install

Cons: This Motherboard is not a good choice for those who are going to be using Windows 7 32 or 64 bit systems, the computer crashed the second i attempted to install the chipset drivers, it wouldn't even let me update the audio or LAN drivers.

Other Thoughts: Go with MSI for a decent board around the same price.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap and it works.

Pros: Cheap and it works.

Cons: The power, led, reset cables are right under a full size video card. It works, but looks like It could have a stress failure on the case's cables.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't have any advance specs like WiFI, USB 3. But it worked as expected.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty Motherboard?

Pros: It is an "okay" motherboard, but I have yet to see it in action.

Cons: Motherboard could be faulty. Tried starting my computer, front panel power switch will blink when I press it, but won't stay on. I know there's nothing wrong with the front panel.

Other Thoughts: Could I send in my motherboard for a replacement?

4 out of 5 eggsFor WinXP users...

Pros: Reliable board overall, with everything you need for a basic setup...can't beat the price so a good value here for quality ASUS components.

Cons: The *only* real issue I noticed with this board is that it has a tendency to exhibit a minor amount of internal audio interference noise on the sound channel if the volume is set loud enough. This occured with both onboard and PCI card audio sources.

Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT: If using WinXP, you need to make sure that the drive is set to IDE mode (and not AHCI) in the bios, before installing. This is what will cause a blue screen if you don't do so.

I also recommend setting it to use the 'Energy Saving' Mode (instead of Performance Mode) since it will keep your voltage slightly lower (ie. generates less heat and will prolong its lifespan)...yet the CPU is still blazing fast.

I currently have my multiplier set to 41x and the voltage comes out to 1.385V this way.

Overall I would give this board an 8/10 for the given price range.

1 out of 5 eggsDIY Bundle a6 6400k a55bm e

Pros: Works with a video card installed

Cons: I bought this from one of the DIY combo bundles with a6 6400k apu
I got no video from this thing and the only way its gonna work from a fresh build is for the board to be pre flashed with the latest bios... cant really install the latest bios if u cant get the thing to POST!! Now i gotta get a new board and try again just glad to get rid of this garbage...

Other Thoughts: Ya buy this is if you have a video card dont trust that its gonna work with on-board graphics

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board for basic builds

Pros: + Outstanding EUFI implementation. Asus truly does have the lead over every other motherboard manufacturer out there in this capacity
+ Solid board with perfect placement of mounting holes. Yes, mATX form factors are predefined but I've seen so many OEMs skimp on putting a hole here or there on the motherboard. This board has all the holes it should, and as such it has excellent support once installed in the case

Cons: - I'm not keen on the yellow accents but that's personal bias
- The I/O shield has 3 "top-springs". These are the tensioners which look like ski tips and rest on top of an I/O block. Dealing with 3 is a pain and it takes patience and maybe an extra hand to get the motherboard installed properly.
- The new AI Suite 3 looks fantastic but I don't care for the fact that it no longer resides in the system tray. Rather it "hides" itself behind a pull out tab above the system tray. I suppose this is to accommodate the moronic Win 8 desktop UI but I don't like it.

Other Thoughts: This board doesn't support USB 3.0, which of course isn't the boards fault as this is a feature of the chipset. I mention it here so you know going into this that if you choose a case with USB 3.0 ports, you'll need an interal USB 2 to USB 3 adapter like this Apevia jobber (N82E16812201039). That effectively raises the price of the board by $7. You could also opt to go with a PCIe USB 3.0 adapter card like this SYBA jobber (N82E16815124122) but that increases the effective cost of the board by almost $20, and you loose an expansion slot! So if USB 3 is important to you, look elsewhere.
