ASUS B85M-G LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel B85
  • 4th-Gen Intel Core i7 / i5/ i3 (LGA1150)
  • DDR3 1600/1333

Pros:

Great budget board with many features. Came with HDMI, DVI & VGA connectors onboard. Many internal connectors to accommodate most users. Easy to install!

Cons:

Bad onboard video. Works 50% of time then goes to permanent sleep almost immediately. If your planning on using this board I would suggest buying a video card. I could not resolve the issue and I don't care to waste my time calling ASUS. Since I am using a graphics card, this is not a major issue, because it solved the issue immediately. ASUS should fix this issue as most may want to use the onboard with these new Haswell processor from Intel.

Other Thoughts:

Not much more to say. Since a gpu was placed on the pci-e 3.0, it works as it should. Take my advice or RMA this one. I would go for a better chipset than this one, but a budget build is a budget build. I took off two eggs and should have knocked off 3, but an easy fix...who really uses onboard video anyways ;)

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

Thank you for your review.

I am sorry the onboard video card is malfunctioning. Our motherboards have a very low failure rate, and it is uncommon for these kind of issues to happen. When using the onboard video, did you make sure to install the latest CPU drivers for the computer? This may fix the issues you are having with your computer build.

If the issue still persists and you would like to have the motherboard looked at under warranty, please let me know, and I will be happy to help. Your reference number is 3061185.
