    This Asus Micro ATX AM1M-A motherboard is one of two that I purchased on Amazon… Adding the AMD Athlon 5350 APU, 2.05Ghz, AD5350JAHMBOX along with 4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL9 @1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory Module BLS4G3D1609DS1S00 is an “AMAZING BUY!”This computer can run what some of my other high end systems can. I’m not sure that you could run the latest “CALL OF DUTY” on it but your everyday apps like Microsoft Office, media players and editors seem to run flawlessly. I have run Battle For Middle Earth II in High Resolution and have only experience some minor lags in the game. On one notch down from High eliminates all lags…I am very happy with this system and the pricing is Fantastic! This Motherboard and APU was designed for the less privileged individual, so he/she could afford a computing system without having to “Break The Bank!”

    This motherboard has been great! It was a bit of a pain to set up at first, because of some video incompatibility issues that Radeon and certain branches of Linux are having. The solution to that was to wait it out, but honestly I meant to buy a dedicated video card anyway. I made sure to buy GeForce and have had no issues since. It performs very, very quietly, which works well with the SSD’s I’ve put in it. It generates very little heat. It’s a general purpose desktop machine for me, which I use for purposes as a college student, for some Steam games, and for serving video content to my television via a MiniDLNA server. It’s great.

    I put this motherboard in an old Dell computer that was on its last legs. Paired it with a solid state drive and an AMD Sempron 3850. Everything bolted in great. It boots up Windows 8.1 in 20 seconds. Little noise, no heat, and NO BLOATWARE!!! It’s my dream computer for under $200.

    This is a great AM1 motherboard. The UEFI is intuitive and easy to use and even supports overclocking. The board layout is good and has ample PCIe expansion slots.Speaking of PCIe slots, I do however wish that ASUS had used notched PCIe 1x slots to allow longer cards to physically fit into them. I bought this motherboard with the intention of using three 4x PCIe 1.1 cards in it and had to cut the backs off the 1x slots with a dremel in order to do so.

    I purchased this board along with a 3850 cpu, 4gb crucial ballistic sport,and a arctic alpine M1 cooler. the sole purpose for this was to run LibreELEC on. so far handles 1080P and HD audio content from my server flawlessly. I have it in a Silverstone ML04 case with no fans other than the cooler fan. While running 1080P content with HD audio the system runs at 25C. Overall really happy with this motherboard. The only con I can find with it is Asus should have put more sata connectors on it.

    Very Impressed with this AM1 platform, and especially this motherboard. This and the itx version are the only ones that allow overclocking on the kabini apus that I know of. I was able to get a stable 2.4+ mhz overclock on a 5350 with the stock cooler and no heat issues never seen it go above 49c and I hear its common to get about 2.5 with stock heatsink and fan with no issues. If you plan on overclocking with the AM1 platform use this mother board. For better overclocking use an hdd drive and in bios switch your boot drive from AHCI to IDE. I hope to see some new apus soon for AM1.

    Asus, as usual, hasn’t gone with the flow, and built a very capable motherboard!This was my only choice, as I need ECC support for disk integrity in the server, and even the original BIOS release fully supports unbuffered ECC.The additional USB 3.0 socket offers 4 full-speed ports, which are fully supported by recent Linux and BSD distros, as well as Windows 8.x.The size of this board is actually SMALLER than Micro ATX, width wise, without sacrificing the expansion slots, so I’d almost want to call this Expanded ITX (the width is ITX spec, and the length is Micro ATX). Case mounting points are exactly as MicroATX, so no worries.The AM1 only offers 4 PCIe lanes free (all internal components are on 4 dedicated PCIe lanes, which are independent from the slots), but that is absolutely sufficient should I need to add a SAS controller or a 10Gb/s NIC. The PCIe 16X slot is only wired for 4X cards max. Adding a 4X card will essentially turn off the two 1X slots, or a 2X slot in the 16X position will still leave the 1X open for business.My only concern was the Realtek 8111GR LAN controller, as I have previously had major speed slowdowns with older Realtek chips, but this is quite solid. It is NOT BUFFERED, so plan to have CPU activity on LAN work as part of the package.For a low-power BSD server, this is absolutely ideal, as thus far I have no need to add additional hardware, at least until 10Gb wireless reaches the consumer market!This latest one will be being built soon, with an AMD Athlon 5350 quad-core APU, Crucial ECC unbuffered memory, a Kingspec 16GB SSD, and handle my MediaSonic Probox drive enclosures, including SATA replication, over the USB 3 interfaces. Overall, in-system should be a cool 35-40W, with the only real heat producers external of the machine.

    Solid board for the price. It’s a low cost board, so keep your expectations in check, but it has worked flawlessly so far. Just watch out for those AMD pins . . .

    This is a great Motherboard for a low powered server, mine uses only 30 watts with the following system components. AMD 5350 APU, 120GB SSD Win 7 x64, 2x4GB 1600 ram, one 8 Port PCI e gen2 SATA card, three 4TB and one 6TB drives to store all my TV, Movies, Photos, etc, and one 240mm fan to cool the drives.Just a side note but I use Media Browser 3 as my media server it works great and its free for the server and desktop versions, you`ll have to pay a small fee for the mobile versions if you want to play your media away from home but it`s well worth it.
