Fake ASUS motherboards circulate in Europe

5,000 found in France

A hardware site is reporting that over 5000 counterfeit ASUSTeK P2B motherboards are being distributed in France. According to Hardware Fr, the motherboards come from a Chinese factory. The site says you can recognise fakes because the rev number on the PCB is 1.04. That's a version that ASUSTeK discontinued at the end of 1998. You can find the rev number between the second and the third ISA slot. ®
