1.0 out of 5 stars Awful if running with FX series, 8 April 2012
By 
This review is from: Asus M5A97 PRO Motherboard (Socket AM3+, DDR3, ATX, Auto Tuning - Auto System Level Up) (Accessory)
I have been using this motherboard for 2 months (bought from e-buyer) with the following problems:
1) It occasionally show me a blue screen.
2) Sometimes it does not pick up the RAM and I have to change slots or refresh the BIOS couple of times to get it to work. Further my RAM is in the compatibility list of supported RAM
3) I have already upgraded my BIOS but still facing the above problems.

On the top my experience this ASUS mother board is not a good choice running with FX processors, I am planning to return this in next couple of weeks and would pick different Brand rather than ASUS.

Finally, I wouldn't recemmend anyone to buy this board with FX series processors. After facing all these troubles I have read soo many bad reviews by other users facing nearly the same problems.

This is not the fault of the motherboard, The FX series is incompatible with alot of hardware. And the RAM problem is due to you most likley having RAM which is made for an intel chipset :)

Hi J. Dockerty,
Thanks for your reply and I would like to clear two things:
First, My RAM is not only in the compatibility list of this motherboard but I have also tried a different Brand RAM and having the same error.
Second, It was written in the decription of this board that it does support FX series Socket AM3+ processors and that's why I bought it. And on the top of this I started facing troubles after 5 to 6 weeks of usage... If this board does not compatible with FX4100 then It shouldn't have started the PC from the begining.

I have the fx 4100 and this motherboard and I have no problems I think it must be down to your motherboard being faulty...
