Cheap APU Motherboard

Pros: I purchased this motherboard for low power ESXi 5.5 U1 host build out and success was attained after some customization was needed. My original plan was to have a very lower power and heat ESXi host to leave on 24/7. This motherboard at idle with a single SSD and 8GB of ram uses below 19 watts of power (observed via APC UPS front panel). I am very pleased with the power consumption but further testing is needed for performance results. Everything works but the realtek onboard LAN card with the default ESXI install media. The driver needed is the 8168 if you are planning to use this with ESXi 5.1 or later. The link provided details how to get it working via a customized install disk.

Cons: cpu performance is rather underwhelming at stock speeds.

Other Thoughts: I will mess with overclocking the CPU some for testing purposes but I plan to run this at stock speeds long-term. My primary goal was low power consumption and this was achieved. An alternative to the LAN problem is to pick up an intel gig card for around $30. I have provided a link to a intel NIC.

Buy this from Memory Express

Pros: I love these boards and buy lots of them but they are cheaper from Memory Express and the shipping is lower, also. New Egg's Iron Egg guarantee is broken. They will ask you a question via email, despite all info being in the Iron Egg price match request, and then bounce every email you send them stating various arbitrary reasons.

Cons: I don't believe New Egg is dishonest and I'm not going to sue them over 7 bucks but they need to remove the Iron Egg nonsense because trying to use it is a mistreatment of their customer base.

Other Thoughts: If there was no Iron Egg price guarantee, I would still be a customer. They are only five bucks higher than Memory Express on product and two dollars on shipping but they made a guarantee so they need to stand behind the guarantee or they look completely dishonest to people like me.

Solid Performer, For What It Is

Pros: Solid performance. Quiet. Small form factor. 5 6.0GB/s SATA connectors. Cheap.

Cons: Relatively slow. Not bad for a file server, but proving to be inadequate for my needs in a media server.

Other Thoughts: I think this is a great board for a media server - in general. Unfortunately, for my needs it struggles. I'm running Sabnzbd, Couchpotato, Transmission, Headphones, plus hosting DLNA and SAMBA, on Ubuntu Server 12.04.4. My server has 4 GB RAM (1066), 5 SATA drives (1 + 4 in a RAID5). I regularly max out the CPU (between 2.5 - 4 SysLoad).

If you understand what I'm talking about, then you should be able to figure out if this board will work for you or not.

I am going to bite the bullet and upgrade a Haswell i3 core, 35w or 45w. I need the extra power and the i3 does a great job of reducing consumption when it can operate in a low power state.

If you are only using this to server content, it's a fantastic workhorse (and cheap). I recommend it if your needs are less than mine! Dinged one egg due to not meeting my particular needs. YMMV

Perfect high-end HTPC or low end server board

Pros: This is an expensive board but has optical out and great onboard video for HTPC use. It's overkill for most home theater systems, however. I have two of these MBs as HTPC front-ends and one Foxconn AT-5570 fanless systems. The little Foxconn performs about the same, for HTPC but is missing optical out (only has coax digital out).

It's also a great, low power, SOHO, server board. I have two for this purpose, also.

I did not install the supplied CPU fan on any of my boards. I don't work the CPUs hard, to say the least, but temperatures have been excellent. I just plug the rear case fan into the CPU fan header on the motherboard and let CnQ do the rest.

Cons: It maxes out at 8GB of RAM, limiting performance as a file server. This limit comes from the ASUS BIOS.

Also, it's too expensive.

Other Thoughts: This board is available at a lower price from another vendor so that is where I purchased my last board.

Not Recommended for Linux Builds

Pros: * Theoretically speedy, nice options on board for price
* Easy to install / setup (physically)

Cons: * Constant issues with Linux (Debian, Wheezy)
* IRQ Interrupts cause system-wide slowdown and instability
* No proper Linux support from ASUS

Other Thoughts: I bought this board to run a Debian-based NAS box. Setup of NAS went relatively smoothly, and I was up and running a 3-disk RAID-5 Array for main backups + 2 single disks for individual Windows computer backups.

Problems started to occur when I began using rsync to offload cold-storage copies of my NAS data to external hard drives via Firewire. An IRQ Interrupt on the firewire port would slow the process to a crawl. A reboot would theoretically fix it, but was not ideal.

I'm still in the process of testing this board... 14 days left till I can't return it to Newegg anymore. After looking around online, though, I cannot recommend this board to anyone wanting to use it with Linux.

works well

Pros: works with vmware vsphere hypervisor 5.1 (ie: esxi 5.1)
small and compact
layout was easy to work with

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: works well out of the box with vmware vsphere hypervisor 5.1 (ie: esxi 5.1). thought I was going to have to slipstream some drivers for either the NIC or storage but nope, worked out of the box

Cranky BIOS endless boot loops

Pros: Small, Low power/ low heat, attractive

Cons: Quirky BIOS, unstable operation, poor memory compatibility

Other Thoughts: This is my second board. Board 1 was DOA out of the box. Newegg replaced it with another. I have just coaxed windows 7 premium on it and got everything up to date. On every reboot during the update process, the BIOS would crash and I couldn't get the board to post until pushing reset several times, rapidly. It never really boots up properly. Makes me dread shutting it down. Once it's running, it works fine while you use it but when it sleeps, it crashes or freezes. Asus is normally my "go to" brand for little builds like this. I am very disappointed in the instability.
One other thing, it's finicky about memory. I haven't found any it will take 8 GB of. It will only run with 4 GB of memory so far. I have some other options to try as far as brands later. If I have new data on that front, I will update my review if I can.
I may try to flash the BIOS if this continues. Heed this warning: This motherboard is trouble. Choose something else.

Dear Valued Customer,

What version os did you install 32 bit or 64 bit? Have you tried removing everything and just the minimum system requirements.

What memory are you trying to use that is failing? What is your PSU wattage?

Have you tried disabling the turbo key switch?

Have you tried reinstalling the OS?

Have you tried changing the mode of your hard drive from AHCI to IDE or vice versa.

Here is a link below where you can update to the latest drivers and bios.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me again at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S

ASUS strives to meet and exceeds our customer expectations within our warranty policy.

It works pretty good

Pros: It plays 1080P no problem, streams it as well, power usage is minimal. Perfect for HTPC except.....

Cons: Everything works great except for sleep. Note you need to update bios in order to not get BOS when waking up but after that. I still get problems from waking from sleep. When I put it to sleep and wait 10-15 minutes to wake up no problems. But If I put it to sleep and wait over an hour or two the thing wont wake up. Ive tried WOL, waking up from keyboard, waking up from power button and nothing. If someone has found out how to do this it would be great if you posted something here. Its not a deal breaker but I wish these feature would work.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your feedback. The sleep issue may be a OS configuration issue. Please make sure you have the latest chipset drivers installed, and turn off Hybrid Sleep in Power Options. Check if the system is set to enter Hibernate state after a long period of time or disable Hibernate and retest. Open a command prompt and type "powercfg -devicequery wake_armed" to see a list of devices that can wake the system from sleep. If none are shown, go to Device Manager and right click on the device to allow waking the system--uncheck "Allow this device to wake the computer". Refer to Sevenforums.com's guide "Windows 7 - Devices - See Devices that are able to Wake Up the Computer" at http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/122019-devices-see-devices-able-wake-up-computer.html for more information. For additional support, please contact me at cl-benson@asus.com and I'll try my best to assist you. Thank you.
