The Aftershock Quad Core AMD FM2+ 3.5 GHz 8 GB Motherboard and Processor Bundle is designed for gaming performance. It features AMD’s most advanced APU ever, so revolutionary it challenges the very definition of a processor and can take on the latest games with ease. Supplied with 8 GB of DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Pro Memory which runs at 1866 MHz for the best performance whilst gaming. The Asus A88XM-PLUS motherboard includes 4 x DIMM slots, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, PCIe 3.0 and 8 x SATA 6Gb/s ports as standard. Plus exlusive Asus technologies such GPU Boost unlock integrated graphics performance by up to 30%.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and stable for gaming and handling photos I used two of these for two separate PCs, both mounted in Zalman Z11 Plus cases with three hard drives and powered by Corsair power supplies and TP link dual band wireless adaptors. One is used for gaming with a Radeon R7 370 graphics card for my son who plays games through Steam, (e.g. Space Engineers, Magicka 2, Gary's Mod, Heroes Reborn Gemini etc). It needed the graphics card as without it the display was a little bit laggy. It has a CX750 power supply. The second machine is used for running Photo editing software, MS Office and browsing without a separate graphics card. I just run this using a Corsair VS350. There have been some complaints online about the lack of sophistication of the fan for the processor. I have a temperature gauge on the front of the PC and it is currently reading 26.8 C and rarely goes above 30C. The systems are stable. The only complaint is that the GPU boost switch, when activated on the machine with the graphics card, causes the system to crash/freeze, but I haven't bothered investigating this as it runs well without it. Fitting was easy.

This item is stated as being "used". 1/ Was this a demo module or was it actually fitted into a case. 2/ Does this mean that the Mobo' is already populated and 3/ What is the warranty on this item?
