Pros: HDMI and SPDIF out
Cons: USB ports die at Windows splash screen when trying to load Win7
Other Thoughts: Purchased this open box, mounted an AMD A6-6400K APU, 8gb (4x 2GB) Crucial DDR3 1333 MT/s CL9 Unbuffered UDIMM sticks in a Fractal Node 605 case and Fractal Bronze 500w power supply. Slimline BD will run the Win7 install DVD but as soon as the swirling dots appear at the splash screen, all the USB ports die.
I finally got Win7 to load by using the mouse via the single PS/2 connector, but I'm stuck again since I need both mouse and keyboard to finish initial config.
I've seen issues with Win7 hanging at install and hoped these symptoms would be resolved by downloading new drivers -- but I can't get that far.
Also, the driver DVDs that came with the motherboard don't seem to work -- they look to be executing some DOS commands but then end up at the A:/ prompt.
Has anybody else had these problems with this board or can offer any suggestions?
