3 out of 5 eggs I'm a little disappointed w/ ASUS 08/19/2014

This review is from: ASUS A85XM-A FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It's a nice board for the price. Even though something went wrong with the board on me, I would buy, again...

Cons: I updaded the Bios using their OS bios utility, 3/4 through the process pc froze up, I waited 20 mins to see if it would
come out of it. Moved the mouse and it was still froze, so I waited a few mins and still the same so I hit reset and when it booted, I got two short beeps, meaning CMOS error. I reset the CMOS with the jumper, tried it again, same result..I then removed the CMOS battery and used the jumper again..Same, called ASUS and they gave me the run around, told me to test the RAM again, and Jumper, and Battery yet again, told me to leave it for two hours, I did..Then I was told the 550W PSU was too small. Not for an A8 w/ onboard V & A..I was hung up on once, because I mistook the letter O for a 0 in the s/n..4 phone calls and two days later, I was issued an RMA..

Other Thoughts: I have been buying ASUS boards exclusively for well over ten years and I didn't appreciate their rudeness..Don't make folks jump through hoops, if the board is RMA'ed and their is nothing wrong, charge a diag fee and send it back on the customers dime..No need for rudeness..
