2 out of 5 eggs be careful when selecting memory 04/26/2014

This review is from: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros:

easy install, great GUI BIOS interface. can really fine tune everything. no heat problems.

Cons:

the fan headers located along top right make it difficult to plug up some fans with shorter cords, which can get in the way of GPUs and CPU fans.

if you are going to go 2133 mhz memory , make sure you double check against Asus Quality Vendors List otherwise you will have to down speed them to 1866mhz to prevent instability and BSOD problems.

Other Thoughts:

good mobo for the price, but really annoyed since i bought G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL, and had to manually cut it down to 1866mhz just so Windows would run.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

What processor do you have installed? At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, and we can discuss this case further. Within the email, please include the serial number of the motherboard and your reference number (3647232).

Regards,
