Can't really think of any
Random freezing and lockup with A10 7850K! Unusable!
Had a gut feeling that Asus sucks and it was proven right. It does support 7850K right out of the box without having to flash bios but this lunatic board would freeze every now and then rendering the system absolutely unusable.
All other components are quality ones like Corsair, Kingston, Thermaletake, etc. Spent days trying to get this junk work, nah.... A few google searches reviewed that other with similar Asus boards experience the same problem.
Bios update DID NOT help. Reinstall DID NOT help. Changing RAM sticks DID NOT help, nothing helped. Thing likes to die.
Asus, I WILL NEVER BUY another Asus, ye hear me? Unless, of course, it's FAR. :)
In most cases, freezing would not be caused by a motherboard. Have you confirmed that everything was configured correctly in the BIOS? Usually when a computer freezes, it is caused by an incorrect setup (user error) and/or faulty/incompatible computer components. Please make sure everything is compatible with this motherboard and is set up correctly.
