3 out of 5 eggs Not Recommended for Linux Builds 09/23/2013

This review is from: ASUS E45M1-M PRO AMD E-450 APU AMD Hudson M1 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo

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.
