Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value and customer Service Bought this mobo bundle at Maplin Tottenham Hale, although you can get the same from other sites for as low as Ј209.00, but you pay for the waiting time and without the excellent customer service! I purchase it on 23rd of December,2013, however, on 8th of January, my computer stopped booting. I took the mobo to the shop the next morning, and I must say it must be the best customer service ever: I was given a brand-new replacement in a matter of minutes! The staffs were very friendly and I love the people working there! They are certainly very knowledgeable and knows everything about the electronics in their store. I will definitely give it a 5-star rating! Buy with confidence at Maplin, because you are always backed by the customer service, unlike online purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good This bundle is very good if you are after a computer which can play high end games but having said that you need to buy a good graphics card in order to unlock this bundles true potential. The processor id easily powerful enough to power the most demanding of games. All you need to do is fit the fan and it is ready to use. I would advise getting another fan though because if you do intend to play games have just the one fan will get very loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and solid performer Purchased from the Wrexham branch where the staff were superb as always. I bought this on offer for £199 which represents excellent value for money considering you get a 4th generation i5 processor, a good quality Asus mother board and surprisingly good quality Corsair XMS DDR3 1600 memory rather than the usual generic memory in found in most budget motherboard upgrade kits. The package is supplied ready assembled with the processor, standard Intel fan fitted and memory ready installed in the two available slots. Being a budget kit it is a little lacking in accessories coming with just two SATA data cables and the obligatory i/o port shield for the rear panel of your case. You will need to purchase mounting screws (only requires 6) to fit the board in your case if you do not already have some. The mother board itself is a bit of a gem. Marketed as a basic item it is actually very well equipped with plenty of USB ports (and several headers for additional USB ports on-board) etc. and the superb Asus UEFI Bios although some may find having only two RAM slots and four SATA ports for various drives as well as just one header for a chassis fan a little limiting but this will be more than enough for the vast majority of people. Otherwise it's all typical Asus quality being well made and with thought having gone into the layout which means high end graphics cards don't foul SATA ports/ USB headers etc. The only thing that lets this down is the position of the front panel connector midway along the lower edge which makes it a bit of a stretch to connect it on some cases. Processor is all you might expect. Rock solid, hardly a slouch in performance terms and impressively when the supplied Asus AI suite had been run was automatically boosted up from 3000Mhz to a constant 3400Mhz putting it roughly on par with a much more expensive i5 4670. Can't recommend this bundle highly enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from more like it This is more like it, this represents a great deal, perhaps it's just your AMD bundles that are over priced, maybe AMD do big discount deals with the big hardware retailers, as AMD must find it hard to shift their inventory these days.

Does this come with some kind of thermal paste already on the processor, the heat sync is already attached so I assume so.

Asked by: Darkorso
Yes the CPU and heat sink are fitted and thermal paste is already installed.

I was recommended this by a chap at Maplin plus the CX500 psu and Carbide Spec-03 case. The board has 1 4-pin fan connector but the case has 2x 3-pin fans. How do I connect the case fans to the board?

hi can 3 monitors connect to this or is it best to get a graphics card. do i buy hdmi monitors . how do they connect if it doesnt have 3 hdmi ports  many thanks darren

Asked by: darren74
No you cannot connect 3 display devices to this motherboard. You would need a dedicated video card The display devices you choose would be determined by the outputs of the particular video card you select.
