Superbly built, superbly featured and superbly cheap!!!

First of all, I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything, but sometimes i do play some high graphic games like crysis2 and NFS The Run.

So now to my personal opinion and experience ; I cannot be more satisfied with this motherboard. When I opened the box and took it in my hand I was truly amazed by its built quality and design. I've fused the AMD Bulldozer FX-4100 procesor, 4gb corsair xms3 (1600mhz) and XFX HD Radeon 6770 to this mobo and I'm so much satisfied by the way this whole package performs! I was on a very tight budget and I had to get the most out of my components and I'm so damn happ...

I was on a very tight budget and I had to get the most out of my components and I'm so damn happy about the whole package. (every single component is selected by myself)

Pros ;
1. 2x usb 3.0 ports
2. Inbuilt graphics - 1gb shared, hd radeon 4250 (hdmi dvi d-sub ports available)
3. Amazingly built

Cons ;
1. No cross-firing ( have only 1 pci-e x16 2.0 slot)
2. No UEFI Bios

I took this mobo instead of my other choice (asus m5a97 - newer chipset, slightly better performance and with uefi bios) because this mobo, m5a88-m, have display ports available making this a replacement to connect your monitor in case anything goes wrong with your discrete gpu.

Good Motherboard

I bought this mobo and paired it with an AMD 8150-FX. I am aware that another reviewer had said that his mobo had required flashing to enable it to be used with an 8120-FX. However, I did not have this problem and my CPU was supported out of the box.

Much of this has to do with the the Asus BIOS revision. I had rev. 1100 - the 8150-FX is supported from rev. 0502 onwards. To know your BIOS revision look at the bar-coded sticker on the mobo near the 24V connecter. The last 4 digits will give the BIOS version.

If you do have a problem, call up Asus Customer Care (India) and they will direct...

If you do have a problem, call up Asus Customer Care (India) and they will direct you to a local service centre where they will flash it for free.

I also use 16 GB of GSkill and this works fine. There are overclocking features which I haven't used (don't intend to either considering India ambient temperatures).

I use Fedora (17) 64-bit and all mobo features are recognised just fine. The onboard 4250 is recognised and 3D features enabled with the open-source Gallium right after installation so Gnome-Shell works great. fglrx will probably improve performance - but I am yet to try it out.

Linux users - Buy!

Using this MOBO from Nov-2011 till date

THIS IS THE BEST MOBO OUT THERE IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE & PRICE, EVEN FOR HARDCORE GAMMING WITH A TIGHT BUDGET, THE BEST THING IS IT HAS A ONBOARD INTERGRATED GRAPHICS & IF U WANT U CAN USE A GRAPHICS CARD, HAVE TESTED BOTH OF THEM WITH GAMES LIKE WITCHER2, RAGE, COD3 & IT RUNS AWESOME WITHOUT ANY LAGGIN ONBOARD & RIGHT NOW USING NVIDIA 550TI 2 GB DDR5 CARD & BOY ITS A BLISS...IF UR READING THIS THEN I SUGGEST GO FOR IT...

everything you need

This is a very good motherboard. Absolutely great for any kind of work. Anyone who wants a good amd mobo , read the product info and take it without any second thoughts. But I recommend a good '450 W PSU' for this.

pro -
- memok switch which makes recovery from boot failure an absolute breeze....

Rock Solid Heart Touching

guys, i have been using this board for 2 months, it is one of the best Am3+ board with 880G chipset. seriously thing about this board if you are building an AMD rig under 30K.
No Memory compatibility issues with board, 1 GB inbuild HD 4250 graphics is OK for mild Gaming
