Pros:

Well what Pro's I have are that its fast with a AM3+ CPU.

Cons:

I have no idea why this motherboard is only able to use VGA setup when you boot it and UEFI Bios, Set up anything before windows setup or boot in to windows. It took me over 2 hours to find out that I needed a OLD CRT with VGA to see anything before installing windows or drives or anything.... My newer DVI/VGA LCD monitor wouldn't even show anything with both or either cable plugged in to the GPU!!!! I was going crazy... Then I plugged in to my son's old Computer Setup minus his tower of course and WALLAH! I see the Logo Screen and then can get in to UEFI BIOS after pressing DirectKey and MemOK buttons for the last hour and plugging and unplugging and checking and double checking everything I did, before doing it and after doing it... So now I'm using a OLD CRT and My new LCD Monitor, the CRT for BOOT up and BIOS, and my LCD for in Windows!.... What is wrong? I would like to use my LCD for my New MB and not have to use Two Monitors.... Also I can't RAID my Hard drive either with out some other hard drive going offline or not showing up in Windows or Windows Installer.... maybe after getting new BIOS and trying a few things in that New UEFI I might be able to get my LCD to work....

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

Thank you for your review.

When you tried both a dedicated display card and on-board graphics for display, video only displayed using the VGA port? When you have the chance, please contact me through email regarding this case, including the requested information, and we can discuss this case further. 3776493.
