ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Great until warranty expired 11/02/2013

This review is from: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Worked great until literally 6 months after the warranty period ended.

Cons: I ran this board for 3.5 years with two 2 gb sticks of RAM. I decided to upgrade to four 2 gb sticks of RAM and found out that the computer would not post to BIOS with RAM installed in the B2 DIMM slot.

Other Thoughts: I tried everything to fix this problem. I updated the bios, I changed the settings in the BIOS, I cleared the CMOS, and I checked my motherboard for shorts. Nothing worked. I called ASUS and asked for help. They sounded like a broken record. All they told me was that the board was out of warranty and there was nothing they could do. They wouldn't repair it at a lower cost, they wouldn't RMA the board, they wouldn't even send me a coupon for another ASUS motherboard. They were completely unwilling to help me. In short, do not buy this board unless you only plan to use it during the warranty period. The only egg this product gets actually goes to NEWEGG. NEWEGG gave me a great price on this board and delivered it to me lightening quick. Go NEWEGG!!!

ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs ASUS engineered to fail within 6 months of the end of the warranty period. 11/02/2013

This review is from: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great paper weight.

Cons: Fails shortly after warranty period. Zero customer support. Installing RAM in DIMM slot B2 causes the board to not post to BIOS.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board in February of 2010. The warranty was up in February of 2013. I ran this board with 2 sticks of ram for 3.5 years. I recently decided to upgrade the RAM and fill all 4 slots. I then found out that the computer would not post to the BIOS with RAM in the DIMM B2 slot. I called ASUS and they refused to help me and ignored my requests. Their only comment was that the board was out of warranty and there was nothing they could do. ASUS clearly has engineered this product to fail shortly after the warranty period is over.
