1 out of 5 eggs Giving up on ASUS/ATI 02/24/2010

This review is from: ASUS M3A78-EM AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Easy install, everything worked great.. at first..

Cons:

The timer chip is bad, after buying the motherboard I found posts online with other people having the same issues.

windows clock runs 10x faster
all animations are hyper speed
pc runs in super speed mode but is unstable

all latest drivers and bios

Other Thoughts:

I am giving up on ASUS and ATI all together.

I have bought 3 asus boards in the past 2 years and 1 went bad, 2 came bad from asus. are you kidding me?

as for ATI, installing the ATI software crashed the computer on vista 64bit and I had to load the drivers manually for the resolution to work


I have had poor luck with ATI as well...

I am an AMD/Intel AND NVIDIA PERSON... good bye asus and ati, you lost a customer.

the only way you can resolve this is to pay for overnight shipping on the computer I built, back and fourth from texas to illinois.. and overnight me a brand new motherboard tested with no problems.

some people need to rely on the computers they build and ASUS has proven to be unreliable
