Good all around board for $ 09/08/2011
This review is from: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
I did lots of research before deciding on this one and for the $ and performance its a very cheap and cost effective board to build a gaming system on and even has cross fire. Ive been using asus boards off and on for past 6 years and never had a problem with them.
Running at 3.8ghz fully stable with temps at
30-34c idle /40-45c full load
with a corsair h60 push/pull setup custom mounted at the top of my case.
This board runs at about 38-40c in an open case setup with no fans on it.

Hmm well it didnt have a floppy connector so i had to make an emergency stop at local store to get a usb floppy so i could install my raid drivers.
I think thats the only thing that i wasnt prepared for. Other then that everything went smoothly with the install.
Found out you can load the raid drivers to a floppy though the bios itself which saved me lots of headache. Also has like 4 other options for loading the raid drivers so very good board and the asus engineers have really given us many options oppose to older boards.
