ASUS A88XM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything is great about this board except...

Cons: It will not control any 3-pin fan plugged into the CPU header, only PWM.

It will control 3-pin fans plugged into either other header. Just an inconvenience I noticed months later.

AMD A10-7700K Kaveri 10 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 6 GPU) 3.4GHz Socket FM2+ 95W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series AD770KXBJABOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overclocked to 4.5Ghz @ 1.45v, no issues at all. CPU performs great, couldn't ask for more...GPU is another story.

Cons: Don't expect to play newer games with this, even BF4 that came bundled with it is choppy and has screen tears on high settings with 2133 memory. The CPU will also underclock itself when you're using the GPU no matter what settings you select in bios (stock or overclocked). Tried on two different motherboards (ASRock/ASUS). I do not like the idea of an unlocked CPU setting it's own clock speeds. I bought an unlocked chip for a freakin' reason!! Finally ended up disabling the GPU and getting a card, no issues since.

Other Thoughts: I have a solid motherboard, PSU, and watercooling setup; if I want to load up the CPU with something and play a game, I shouldn't have my CPU throttling down because i'm using too much power or whatever.

ASUS A88XM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overclocks great, went up to 4.5Ghz on my 7700k with no issues, the DIGI+ thing is awesome, nice heat sync on the VRMs, supports Crossfire/SLI, rock solid with 2133 memory (G.Skill F3-2133C10D-8GXM).

Cons: Bios takes some figuring out, overclocking from bios is not easy, measures your overclock by how many mhz you are above stock without actually telling you what it "thinks" stock is. I prefer to see the actual clock. Supports Crossfire, but because the 2nd PCI-e slot is so low, I cannot use a second card in my case (N200) (not ASUS's fault)
