ASUS M4A79T Deluxe
Now that the AMD Phenom II (AM3) line of processors have been out for a few months, forums all over the internet have been abuzz with all sorts of questions. Despite the obvious “How far can I safely push my processor?” questions, the other question to come up quite often is “Which motherboard on the market right now is the most stable/ produces the highest overclocks/ has the best BIOS/ etc.?” Ok, so that is several questions in one, but you get my point. We all must know what motherboard to get to run our new AM3 processors on.
Well, ASUS didn’t wait for all of these questions to start pouring in. Right before the launch of the AM3 Phenom II CPU’s, ASUS released their M4A79T Deluxe motherboard. Building rock solid motherboards is something that ASUS has long been known for, but there have been a few duds in the past. Every manufacturer has had them, but our previously noted questions still remain. How stable is this board? How high can I push my overclock? How well does the BIOS function with the latest in the Phenom II line-up?
These are the questions that we hope to answer. So, let’s not waste time here, let’s delve in and see just what the ASUS M4A79T Deluxe brings to the table.
Thanks go to our friends at ASUS for supplying the review sample.
