ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
  • AMD 880G

4 out of 5 eggs Linux drivers on cd 03/01/2012

This review is from: ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

My first review was a little biased. There is linux drivers on the cd, linux runs great on this board. As a matter of fact linux seems to run better than windows 7 in terms of drivers. (standby didn't work in windows 7 that well)

Ubuntu varians shouldn't even need to install them off the cd since they are already included with the distro.(I think they are for red hat anyways)

I haven't tested the onboard video because of the uncommon dvi port standard that was used.

Cons:

Doesnt use the usual dvi port for the onbloard. Still kind of raging about that.

Still dont like the foxcon name on some of the parts. I have owned a foxcon board that self destructed itself because I booted linux on it once. (Not sure if it was a bios mistake or foxcon but it happened.)

Other Thoughts:

The motherboard functions really good.

The only thing I didnt like on the layout was where the wifi antennas are, and how the ram is super close to the cpu.

I use it for gaming. I paired it with my old nvidia 470, everyhitng is arranged in a way that it stays out of the way of a big video card.

I dont like over clocking but it does overclock really well when paired with nice ram.
