ASUS A78M-E FM2+ AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: USB 3.0, not real complicated.

Cons: No bios update from OS. I loaded the flash program and new version and flashed w pen drive, forget doing it in DOS. It loaded windows 8.1 no issues but I felt it lagged a little bit. Just for ha ha's I loaded Win 7 Pro and it was much more responsive. I really like Windows 8 but 7 ran so much better I'm keeping it. I have 2 other FM2 boards (MSI & GB) and I could deal with that trade off in performance 8. I did not try it on an SSD.

Other Thoughts: I'm a nit picker, the board seems stable to me. I do like MSI's bios one touch OC and Gigabytes OC software better but this is designed for desktop apps I think more so than OCing. I don't recall XMP options in the bios either.

DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Pretty blue lights, tool less.

Cons: Hard drive bay holders put the hard drive cables on the bottom (motherboard side) so you have to remove the R side panel and snake cables in back. Would be MUCH easier to swap drives if they were facing the clear plastic window side.

Other Thoughts: It's big, a lot of room. Solid legs.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 - 32-bit - OEM
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Huge improvement over 8.0, learning curve 09/09/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - 32-bit - OEM

Pros: Loads OS fast w most drivers built in. Looks pretty, for web browsing can't be beat.

Cons: someone said, "Pros: easy to recover your OS if your hard drive gets messed up, it looks like win 7 desktop + tiles, but with some simple adjustments, it starts to look and act like win 7, runs quick and is responsive to the UI.". I REALLY have to disagree w the system restore thing, it does not crash much but if you have hardware issues you won't get it back.

Other Thoughts: Eight is a severe learning curve, if your not computer savvy avoid it. USE Start8 or Startisback and it act's like Windows 7 but added features.
