ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Well, it used to work well 11/09/2009

This review is from: ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It worked (emphasis on the -ed) like a charm; bios easy to set up and very user-friendly.

Cons: After about a month and a half of owning it, it started freezing on youtube and hulu. I then decided to use a discrete video card to see if that would fix it. No change. I upgraded to windows 7. The problem got worse. I tried using Ubuntu. No change. My computer started freezing before the OS loaded, and also at random times after I logged in. I stress-tested the CPU to see if that was the problem. It wasn't. I tested the memory in the bios to see if that was the problem. It wasn't. I reset the bios. No change. I used two different discrete graphics cards (not at the same time). No change with either. I monitored the temperature of the northbridge and it was well within acceptable boundaries. This is the 3rd time I have attempted to write this review, and it looks as though the computer will not freeze on me this time. At this point, I am completely out of ideas, and my board is about a month and a half past newegg's RMA time frame.

Other Thoughts: I really hope this doesn't happen to anyone else. It was such a great board while it worked. I poured over forums and tech sites looking for clues (on another computer; this one freezes too often).

Western Digital WD Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs fast and cool, at least for what I have it doing. The 32 MB cache helps a lot with performance when I'm working with larger files.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs Very good 08/30/2009

This review is from: ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This was my first computer build, and I am confident to say that I will stick with ASUS in the future. It didn't come DOE, and the BIOS were easy and straightforward to set up. All of my components read as they were supposed to, and setting clock speeds for memory and the CPU was very easy, and that's without using the tubro key. The user manual was also easy to follow. This board has great potential for upgrading components.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Can't wait to play with the turbo key.
