This motherboard is powered by an AMD A88X FCH (Bolton D4), and accommodates the latest AMD FM2+/FM2 APUs that integrate the powerful Radeon HD Series Graphics. This means you'll enjoy discrete-class graphics acceleration in your games and daily applications, without the cost or power consumption of an actual discrete video card.

This motherboard is built with an array of Asus features that make it stand out immediately. Asus 5X Protection provides all-round protection to achieve the best reliability and durability. The new UEFI BIOS makes system setting and tuning friendlier, easier and more intuitive. The EPU optimizes power consumption by automatically detecting the CPU loading level, and the Fan Xpert helps your system achieve the perfect balance between cooling and noise with dedicated CPU and case fan controls.  This motherboard also natively supports USB 3.0 and SATA III for you to get the best performance from your devices.

5 out of 5 eggsNo issues whatsoever.

Pros: This was the 3rd computer I put together in rather short succession. This one was for a friend that wanted a decent computer that would do what he wanted for a few years to come. Went with the A10-7870K so just wanted a good motherboard with the A88X chip. Being an ASUS fan I got this one. Wasn't aware of any bios issues with other processors so maybe I got a little lucky here but did not encounter a single glitch. Windows 10, 512GB Mushkin Enhanced Reactor SSD, 3TB Seagate Barracuda HDD, 16GB Corsair Vengeance memory, ASUS Blu-Ray, ASUS AC wireless adapter, and a Rosewill Photon 550w power supply all in a Cooler Master N400 case plus one added blue fan. I just recently read the reviews and though I cant speak on any bios issues this motherboard has worked perfectly. Hope it stays that way and I think it will.

Cons: None, other than the bios is limited on features. It does not matter on this build though and why it cost $50.00 less!

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product as with all ASUS products I have dealt with.

3 out of 5 eggsSeems to be working

Pros: ASUS made it easy to update the BIOS. It shipped with version 501 and I was to update to 1502 in just minutes, no sweat.

Cons: It's a little bit flimsy. I was scared it was going to crack when I was plugging things in. It also argued HARD with me about the memory. I bought 2400 and it wouldn't let me go over 1333. Seriously ASUS? I finally found some settings where it would let me do 2133. It took a lot of trial and error. I've never had a motherboard argue with me like that before. After 5 hours it finally let me install an OS.

Other Thoughts: As for the memory, I had forgotten that AMD processors haven't generally liked mismatched latencies, so looking for RAM I should have looked for even, consistent cycles such as 10,10,10,28.

Looking at the supported operating systems, I now realize it says Windows, Windows, Windows, Windows and Windows. I should have realized I might not get along so well with this one. The other brands I looked at also listed Linux versions that were supported. Just a little bit of a personality conflict there.

The real test is how long it lasts and the performance. I probably won't buy another ASUS, but I have no reason to send it back, either.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Lucinda S,

Thanks for posting this informative review. I apologize for any inconveniences that this issue has caused. Please make sure the DIMMs you are installing are supported in our Qualified Vendors List. When trying to use DIMMs not on the QVL, users are very likely to encounter compatibility issues.

3 out of 5 eggsGood when it worked

Pros: great little board. paired it with a deep cool steam castle. really liked it honestly.

Cons: I bought it like 3 months ago an there's a break somewhere in the board and its toast already. it turns on when in the perfect spot, but shuts off randomly now. drives me nuts.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that your motherboard is malfunctioning and the inconvenience it caused you. That is unfortunately, since It is only 3 months old. What do you mean by it will only turn on in a perfect spot? Can you try taking the motherboard out of your case and test it on a non-conductive anti-static test bench, and see if the problem still persists? If the problem still occurs, I would recommend you submit an RMA and have it replaced at at http://www.asus.com/us/support. ASUS offers 3 year warranty on this motherboard. If you need any further assistance, feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150996144

Thanks for choosing ASUS

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: it looked nice but...

Cons: It was DOA. USB on the back wasn't working and the USB wasn't working on the front either. It won't recognize the VGA or the HDMI and it's a brand new monitor and it was tested on my old computer. So I know that the computer monitor works.
