Aki14's review of Asus A7V8X-X

Asus A7V8X-X

“I returned my Asus A7V8X-X to the store, which I...”

Good Points
BIOS is easy to play around with, in fact too easy that some pros find it dang.

Bad Points
1. 3D games keep crashing back to desktop. (ASUS provided a BIOS update for this).
2. Would not actually install windows smoothly.
3. Too picky on RAM
4. Graphics would sometimes get crazy. (ASUS provided a BIOS update for this)
5. Many times the mouse is not detected after Windows boots up.
6. After less that 6 months the primary slot works crazy if it works at all; sometimes it detects only the HD and sometimes only the CD drive. at times none.

General Comments
I returned my Asus A7V8X-X to the store, which I expect to have already returned the unit to ASUS for repair or replacement. The mobo is a big disappointment.



To see the point, a google search of the following will help (without the quotes): "a7v8x-x problem", "a7v8x-x crash back desktop"

This motherboard caused me innumerable hours of investigation, frustration and headaches before I could definitely prove it was at fault, and not my other periferials! Went with ABIT, and all the other same hardware, and haven't had the BSOD's since! I used to like Asus, and I've built several of my own computers since 1997, but I've heard they've really gotten cheap and they don't even support their retailers any more. No more Asus for me.
