ASUS F1A75-I Deluxe Motherboard Review (with A6-3650)

Rating: 8.5.

We have reviewed a wide selection of products in the new AMD budget range, but today we look at something special, the ASUS F1A75-I Deluxe. This is a premium mini ITX motherboard which offers a capable foundation for a new media center system.

Asus have a reputation for creating some of the finest motherboards available to the enthusiast audience, and I have had many great experiences over the years, pushing processors to the limit.

The A75 platform has proven to be a really solid low end platform from AMD, offering great power efficiency with solid performance. Today we look at building a low cost media center under £500, but one that can handle 1080p gaming with ease. Is it possible?

The board supports USB 3.0, SATA 6 GBps but it also includes ‘Dual Intelligent Processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM’.

According to ASUS this is “The world’s first Dual Intelligent Processors from ASUS pioneered the use of two onboard chips – TPU (TurboV Processing Unit) and EPU (Energy Processing Unit). Its new generation of Dual Intelligent Processors 2 with DIGI+ VRM launches power delivery into a digital standard with a programmable microprocessor that perfectly serves power signal, eliminating digital-to-analog conversion lag. It’s the most precise power delivery available providing the best in class power efficiency, greater performance, and rock solid stability. With ASUS DIGI+ VRM, users can easily adjust power phase performance and system voltages via diverse settings to maximize overall performance and overclocking potential.”

On paper, it looks to be one of the finest A75 boards, and ideal for a small form factor system build.

    Excellent, I love mini itx. dont often get boards that overclock well in this sector however.

    Asus rock, but they didnt give me much help with my last board when it failed. went through a whole load of crap with the dealer. will stick with amazon from now on as their support system is second to none.

    Good review, they make nice boards. I do think this is overpriced, its £30 more than the gigabyte Z68 you reviewed last week……. doesnt seem to make sense for A75.

    Good overclock. Intel can’t overclock. not i3 anyway 😉

    Thanks for the terrific review.

    Can all three on-board video heads (DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort) be used simultaneously, or does triple-monitor action require adding a graphics card?
