This review is from: ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
compact:- fits ok with an ITX chase
overclocking ability: the only good thing about it
Where do I start??? I hate the HDMI output of this board!! The HDMI output never gets full resolution. It does not matter what driver is installed. I have tried all possible drivers with different combination of operating systems including Linux. It doesn’t even get full resolution in BIOS. That made me conclude that it wasn’t the driver. So I contacted ASUS support and they gave me an RMA. So I send it to them and they said it will take 7-10 business days once they receive it...seriously??? Which company does that? I tracked my package and it was received on a Tuesday but when I check my RMA on ASUS support website, they won’t say they received the item till Friday. Then they finally send the board back stating that it was fixed. So I rebuild my HTPC and of course I still do not get my full resolution. I still get that 2" black frame around the picture. Plus i had to pay for shipping!! i am soooo mad!
Dear Valued Customer,
Sorry to hear about the issues. You will not receive full resolution in BIOS as most GPUs will default to a common resolution supported by all monitors.
Your issue sounds like a scaling problem from the display input on your monitor. This can be fixed by setting the appropriate scaling level in the driver control panel for your GPU. You will need to set "overscan" to 0% for a full image if you are getting a border around the screen.
