The Pros:Supports AMD's flagship six-core Phenom processor. Great value for an AM3 motherboard. Simple installation and solid factory-installed firmware.
The Cons:Incompatible with 4GB RAM sticks. Front port interface location too far for some cases' cables. Default overclock settings are less than ideal/misleading.
The Asus M4N68T-M is a budget motherboard for AM3 processors, such as the AMD Phenom and Athlon II series, as well as the AMD Sempron 100. It is of the micro ATX form factor. The motherboard has integrated nVidia GeForce 7025 video, that will use up to 256MB of the installed RAM.

Integrated into the BIOS are several ASUS features, such as Turbo Key, which allows the user to configure the power button as an instant-on overclocking button, as well as energy-management features, such as intelligent fan monitoring, voltage monitoring, and power management from the ASUS Energy Processing Unit. The BIOS can be flashed without an operating system directly from a USB stick, instead of requiring a floppy drive or a Windows installation. Unlike the ASUS M2N68, this motherboard does use the newer and now more common DDR3 standard of memory.
