ASUS A88XM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice MATX board. Has excellent UEFI Bios. Fan Expert2 works great. AI Suite is easy to work with.
Has 8 Sata 6Gb's connectors !

Cons: Does not support AMD A10-7850K out of box (requires BIOS update to 1002).
Even with Bios 1002...cannot use Onboard HDMI or DVI...Only works with VGA (as another user already stated).
Only two Case Fan Headers (would have liked at least one more).

Other Thoughts: I have used Asus motherboards for the last 15 years...they are usually great quality and in the 50 + builds I have done I've only ever had one defective board.
I'm not sure how they could have kicked out a BIOS without checking the onboard HDMI and DVI connections to ensure they were functional first with Kaveri ???
I had a AMD Richland A8 6500 APU that I did the BIOS update to 1002 (needed to run Kaveri) was lucky there...but seriously Asus, give us a new BIOS that Functions with HDMI and DVI !!!
I shouldn't have to put in a discrete vid card just to use my new Kaveri A10 7850K APU !
