Write a review for: Asus H81M-PLUS S1150 Intel H81 DDR3 mATX
Used in a build with the following core components: • ASUS H81M-PLUS MOTHERBOARD • INTEL G3258 PENTIUM K ANNIVERSARY CPU • CRUCIAL BALLISTIX SPORT DDR3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz RAM • SANDISK ULTRA II 120GB SSD • WINDOWS 7 PRO 64BIT SP1 & ALL UPDATES Windows boots in less than 3 seconds, after POST, with no overclocking and Bitdefender AV installed. ----------------------------------------------- Purchased board July 2015, it came with BIOS version 2106. So, it runs all supported CPUs out of the box. The board seems to be of typical ASUS good quality. No issues, everything worked as expected on first boot. BIOS has extensive options, features and overclocking facilities, you can tweak to your heart's content. ASUS AI Suite 3 software allows for even more tweaking. You need to install the management interface and ASUS probe drivers in order to have 'Unknown Devices' in Windows Device Manager installed. I would have no hesitation recommending this board, excellent value for money.
Upgraded my tower unit in August 2015. Found the motherboard instructions easy to follow the new system booted first time, no problems. Runs very fast for my needs; photo, audio and video editing, office stuff, internet, etc. but no games. The other components are:
Intel Core i3-4130 S1150 3.40GHz 3MB
Kingston 240GB HyperX Savage SSD SATA 3 2.5"
8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz CL9 XMP
All for under £250, very pleased
