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
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.
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.)
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.
