MY PROFILE RATING 6/5........(+1) FOR 'NO' NONSENSE

WHAT A MOTHERBOARD IS THIS ! IS IT REALLY UNDER 3 K ??? I BOUGHT IT AND FINALLY MY DREAM COMES TRUE...................

POSITIVE POINTS OF THIS MOTHERBOARD :-

(1) DURABLE PERFORMANCE EVEN AFTER TONNES OF GAMING (ATHLON 2 X2 260 PROCESSOR 3.2 GHZ) COMBINDED WITH 8GB DDR RAM 1800 O.C.

(2) INBUILT GRAPHIC CARD

(3) 7.1 REALTEK AUDIO CODES.....YOU WON'T EVEN FIND IT IN INTEL FOR LESS THAN 3K

(4) EPU

(5) QUIET AND COOL TECHNOLOGY

(6) SUPERIOR MULTI-TASKING IF COMBINED WITH AMD MULTI CORE PROCESSORS.......EVEN SEMPRON (SINGLE CORE) PROCESSORS HELPS IN MULTI TASKING !!!!

(7) SOLID CAPACITORS

(8)INTELLIGENT BIOS

(9) LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST..........'VISHWAAS' !!!

Perfect MoBoard

If you're into gaming and performance and are not interested in wasting money on motherboards then go for this one!...supports AMD processors. Even though it lags a USB 3.0 port, it's features like LED light and Core-Unlocker along with Voltage protector(surge) make it an awesome motherboard. The color combination is stylish. Has PCI-E X16 2.0 and PCI-E X4 slot too( for graphic cards). The BIOS in it can be updated through a pen drive! And with Over-clocking made easy, you can enjoy it's superb performance.

Good mobo

I got this when it wasnt available at flipkart, I am using it with-
phenom(II) X2 555 processor,
4gb Ram,
Power color 6770 gddr5

the best thing i will like to mention over here is-
-lets you configure raid,(Easily)
-small,compact yet powerfull board
-core unlocking(like mine turn X2 to X4 after unlocking latent cores)
-price is low
-and yes 6 sata port for multiple HDD(drives).

cons-
-mobo should have a DVI out(just in case....)
-I havent used it long enough to make a STRONG STATEMENT HERE
(But it runs smooth even after hours of gaming)

Good VFM - possibly some software issues (LX V2)

Some general observations (purchased V2 version but applicable to this version too):
V2 motherboard seems to be not listed in the ASUS India website, the LX and LX plus are listed, but not V2. V2 is listed on the ASUS UK website.
"Foxconn" is embossed on the back panel connectors (nice)!
Front panel audio connector placed extremely low, bottom left edge of the board and was a problem for me.
Mobo looks well made and sturdy.
Back panel face plate seems a bit flimsy, perhaps all are like this, not sure.

Installation:
Front panel audio connector gave me a big problem. My cabinet is a mini tower (CM Elite 343) so the largest boards it supports are micro ATX (like this). The bottom leg at the rear is just millimeters away from the front panel audio and I had a very hard time connecting the cabinet front panel audio connector to it. Was worried I had damaged something (see software issues).
Would recommend anybody buying this board to think carefully about choice of cabinet for this reason. Suggest using a larger cabinet that can accommodate full ATX mobo even though this is micro ATX. If installing in HTPC, look carefully at clearance around bottom left of mobo.

Software issues:
I went ahead and installed all the drivers that came on the DVD. My mistake.
LAN: I found my broadband was slow. First thought just an issue with the internet, but it wasn’t. Found all upload/downloads, especially in the background, were really slow! Was going to assume that the mobo onboard LAN is bad/outdated drivers, so I updated to latest drivers. Still no luck.
After much research, I found others have had similar problems. ASUS AI Suite was the culprit. It is supposed to help with those overclocking but has some LAN QoS packet component which slows down background transfers, presumably so foreground apps get some bandwidth. Unless this doesn’t bother you, would suggest uninstalling the ASUS AI suite. This solved my slow broadband problems.
ON Board Sound: After the LAN issue, my next hurdle was the audio. I found crackling in my headphones, even at low volumes, like when a speaker is going bad – headphone was connected to the front panel and I thought I had damaged the connector while installing it. Plugged headphones into the back panel, but crackling was still there. Tested headphones on other devices, and they were fine (Sennheiser HD 205). So again lots of reinstalling and updating of drivers, but the problem persisted. I then unplugged the HD Audio on the Mobo and plugged in the AC97 and changed the BIOS to AC97. No luck.
Finally, I went to the REALTEK website and checked if they have drivers for download. They do. I had tried all the ASUS HD Audio drivers without luck already. I downloaded the latest Realtek HD Audio driver from the Realtek website. This has solved the problem of crackling sound in the headphones.

Conclusions:
ASUS make absolutely awesome hardware and I would highly recommend it without reservation, but obviously there are issues with their software (online research suggests the above problems are not just with this model of mobo). So if any buyer of an ASUS mobo, not just this one, finds the same problems, perhaps my solutions above may help you.

I would highly recommend this mobo to anybody building a low cost but very high value setup for anything from basic use with a Sempron CPU to a basic gaming rig with a Phenom quad core (check TDP please).

Mind Blowing Buget MOBO..

This mobo is perfect for my AMD FX 4100.. Works great with this & you can easily unlock 4 cores..enable full screen logo at bios setup, at the time of booting when you'l see the logo, just press 4 to activate core unlocker,and your computer will restart with all four cores enabled..overclocks easily with one touch button,just on turbo key from your toolbar.. hats of 2 asus for providing such a mind blowing mobo at a unbelivable price range...other features are also very good..my processor is running continuously at 36 degrees and mobo running at 33 degrees..close ur eyes and buy this when u are in a tight budget.
