3 out of 5 eggs Ok Motherboard 03/24/2015

This review is from: ASUS AM1M-A AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This is a very nice low cost board. I bought it for a simple web browsing/music machine for an uncle.

Cons: The install went fine windows loaded right on. Try to install the drivers for the graphics card and after reboot windows loads and the screen goes black. Roll back to the VGA drivers. update everything else, bios, windows updates, etc. Load on the graphic drivers and again the screen goes black after windows loads. Looked around the web really did not find an answer I liked all of them pointed to the board needing replaced. I decided before I RMAed it to Newegg, I would try the other output options. So I take off the DVI cable and connect with HDMI. Low and behold it works. So just seems the ATI drivers don't want to work with the DVI output on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: For what I payed it was still not a bad deal, 3 eggs.

Pros: Good over all design. If it worked it would have been worth 5 eggs based on the price.

Cons: I don't expect allot for a 15.00 dollar keyboard and mouse combo but I do expect them to work. It was not DoA but the . key is stuck so that when you hit just about anything in the line with it or around it that it just starts to auto fire off a line of ............................

ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Once everything was installed it worked well. AMD x6 3.2ghz overclocked to 3.7 ghz, with 16 gigs of ram. Never have had an issue with Asus boards working. This is my 5th.

Cons: The Reason dropped two eggs off this is just board layout. The two screws at the top of the board are just to far up to be used with a bottom mounted power supply. The one screw hole is almost completely blocked off by a ram channel. With the case that I went with in the end I had to give up and not put in the top two screws.

Other Thoughts: So if your using a top mounted power supply case this board is fine. But if your going bottom mounted I would skip it.
