This review is from: ASUS P8H77-V LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Since this was a Holiday gift for someone, this was a good present as I upgraded his computer for him.
Cons: Had a little stiffling with upgrading the BIOS to the most it could be, it still worked as it said it was.
Other Thoughts: I wished they would at least give me a back plate, but that's fine without it though.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I'm either a Gigabyte fan or MSI fan, and I wanted to try this out to see what's all the fuss. I wanted to use Linux for this and it installed without a hitch. I installed it into an old desktop that I had. I used 16GB of ram and since it uses shared memory, it was so much that I didn't see any performance issues through linux. This system was more for browsing and all around system.
Other Thoughts: This is a great little board. It's not meant for gaming of some sort, but an all around system. Using 16GB is too much, but it works just fine. If you want a all around board, than this is the one for you.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This little board has gone through a media center to a media server over two years. I have to say that the specs of this board is quite interesting, they say that the max is 4 Gb of DDR3, but since I've tested it, it can be pushed up to 8Gb of memory. I'm partially tempted to go up to 16 gigs but we will have to see
Cons: the BIOS updating is still having an issue, but I don't mind that all too much, it gets easier after the first update. The other thing is that there is no information about the mini PCI express port or what is the compatibility for that port. I bought a 2 port mini PCI express card and it hasn't worked with the board and it hasn't been able to be recognized with Windows Home server 2011...Hope they fix the BIOS so it can recognize it easier.
Other Thoughts: Out of all of this, this board has done quite well for what it does as a server, I wish that the D2700MUD board worked just as great as this board has. Comparing between the newer boards, at least with this board, it is 64-bit capable and is not restricted. With the exception of the mini PCI express port, I got nothing wrong with it.READ FULL REVIEW
