- AMD A88X (Bolton D4)
- Athlon/A- Series (FM2+)
- DDR3 2400(OC)/ 2133/ 1866/ 1600/ 1333
Solid Board in Mini Form 12/14/2013
o board layout is well thought out.
o lots of ports for everything (SATA, USB, front & rear audio, DIMM slots, etc)
o legacy & UEFI support
o support for next iteration of AMD APUs / CPUs
Noticed updated BIOS available, downloaded and tried to load via Q-Flash, error showed Q-Flash version was too old?!
Made a DOS based bootable USB stick and updated the BIOS.
This board is in a *nix based system. Everything works as expected other than temp reporting via acpi virtual. Working on drivers for new chipset. Looks like lm-sensors supports the Hudson D3 chip but not this one yet.
Other key components include:
AMD A10-6800K APU
Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1866 Mhz DDR3 SDRAM
(reviewed both of those as well)
