    I have the motherboard Asus M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3. I am using it for 1.5 years now and have found it extremely good and stable-No problems till now. However, this motherboard is very unpopular as per reviews or users having it. Also in the Asus website http://in.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/M4A88TDM_EVOUSB3/#overview

    except my board, all other similar boards have Windows 8 official drivers although mine runs Windows 8 fine. What do you guys think might be the issue with this particular board? Is it bad for most users? Or is produced in a very limited number or something else?

    I think since it's affordable, it just sells many units, so gets mentioned more than others. People without any problems don't have any reasons to post problems.

    I'm not even sure what you mean, but I had it and liked it. Was cheap and did the job.

    @Frick- I know it is awesome. I am having it and everything is butter. I have also overclocked my CPU from 3.2 to 3.9 GHz using stock cooler and fully stable. Also RAM from 1333 to 1736 MHz and the NB from 2 GHz to 2.82 GHz. :) But somewhat it seems uncommon. If you see reviews, there are neither good reviews for the board nor too many users.
    Also you know why doesn't it have Windows 8 official drivers in the Asus site?

    Asus makes hundreds of models, give them some time. Any Win 7 drivers can be installed in Win 7 compatibility, so I see no problem. And you are happy anyway, right? ;)
