Big Letdown for ASUS
This review is from: ASUS CM6730-US003S Desktop PC Intel Core i3 3220 (3.30GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity Windows 8
Pros: Boots fast, works well except see cons.
Cons: ASUS AI II locks up when EPU is selected until BIOS update. With new BIOS, EPU runs but will not control fan (stays at max-REALLY loud!) and does not recognize onboard graphics. ASUS website support section has this model listed individually and only lists an updated bios (that will not install - says corrupt), and updated graphic driver. But there are three sections where this model is combined with 6530, 6630 & 6830 that have numerous UEFI bios updates along with tons of driver updates. This makes for some trial and error to see which BIOS will install and which will make a difference - The newest one... 0507 is the best one, but still no fan control. I recommended this system to a client based upon my experience with many other ASUS products and looked a little silly not being able to get this thing to work - and believe me, I tried EVERYTHING. I just hope an update comes out soon!
Other Thoughts: Maybe the rush to Windows 8 forced some hastiness?
