    ASUS PRIME B450M-A/CSM reviews

    Prime B450M-A/CSM AM4 Micro-ATX Motherboard is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will freeze if running more than 24hrs I bought this motherboard to build my first PC. I use this as a remote workstation (I don't play games) and run 24/7. It starts to freeze after PC runs more than 24Hrs. When it was freezing, there is no monitor signal and no HDD led light, but MOBO, CPU fan and case fans were running. I did a research and tried to fix this issue. I thought maybe there is something with the computer memory, so I bought another memory. It did not work. Then, I replaced CPU cooler, and I updated the BIOS and drivers...I did what I can do and I was not able fix this issue. I did not give 1 start because the MOBO is working, but somehow it will freeze if it runs more than 24Hrs.
