Asus F2A55-M LK AMD Motherboard

This motherboard supports AMD® A-series Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 7000 Series Graphics. This revolutionary APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) combines processing power and advanced DirectX 11 graphics in one small, energy-efficient design to enable accelerated performance and an industry-leading visual experience. It features Dual-channel DDR3 memory support and accelerates data transfer rate up to 5GT/s.

AMD® A55 FCH (Hudson D2) is designed to support up to 5GT/s interface speed and PCI Express™ 2.0 x 16(at x4 speed)graphics.

ASUS motherboards using the AMD® A55 chipset employ precise digital voltage regulation for the APU, called DIGI+ VRM (Voltage Regulation Modules) digital power design. The APU voltage is adjusted via either carefully developed automated modes, or by using user-defined profiles. The effect is that DIGI+ VRM technology ensures greater energy efficiency and the most precise power delivery. Boosted by world-renowned ASUS quality, it creates an ideal computing platform for a diverse range of applications, from gaming to multimedia or office work and heavy multitasking. Engineered and tested to assure unmitigated performance, ASUS A55 boards with DIGI+ VRM remain efficient and accurate, for reliable application in every scenario.

Unexpected problems

The instruction manual is very detailed and it proved unexpectedly easy to fit as a replacement, higher performance motherboard. The Dabs recommended thermal paste I bought was not needed. The processor heat sink is already coated ready for fitting. My main problems have been with the software. I could not start Windows7 to install the drivers. Eventual solution -change the default setting for SATA drives from AHCI to IDE. Then it would not recognise my widescreen monitor and allow me to set it to 1920x1080. Solution - install the graphics driver a second time. Then my old PS2 mouse was not recognised. Solution - go out any buy a new USB one. Not yet found how to stop the case fan running continuously but everything else now working properly. Windows index for processor, memory and gaming graphics speeds are much improved, but desktop graphics performance with Aero is a bit disappointing.

I got this cheap

I got a return version of this deal and when I received it I immediately knew why. With regard to the way that the cooling paste residues were distributed on the processor and the stock cooling fan the person building it was an idiot. There was hardly any paste on the centre of the processor but an abundance at the edges - especially the top left hand corner. For God's sakes folks there are YouTube videos showing you how to put the paste on the CPU properly! Anyway, I have had the combo running for a burn in period of 24 hours with prime98 running and even though I am running it on the stock cooler (I am waiting for my H60 to arrive, because this is my secondary media server which I'll upgrade/good enough to do what I want if my Core i7 990x goes down for any reason so I want something to go forever - that being a relative term) it is still well within the TDP specification of the CPU. OK so I have it in a CoolerMaster HAF XM casing, which for some reason DABS doesn't offer.
