1 out of 5 eggsRAM Detection issues

Pros: Seems solid, Have many Asus MB's and not a single issue with them until now. Great Bios features.

Cons: First boot recognized all 6 Gb of RAM, all subsequent reboots would only show 4 Gb. Super common issue with the LGA 1366 socket. Tried everything, loosened cpu cooler (hyper 212+), checked for backplate shorts, checked for bent pins, manually adjusted voltages and timings, etc. Nothing worked. Could get the bios and W7 to post 6 Gb once and cpu-z always recognized the third DIMM. Upon closer inspection the mounting posts for the cpu cooler run right over top layer board traces (which visually run to the ram sockets). Could be trace damage due to cooler mounts which might explain why some have found solutions in nylon washers or less cooler tension.

Other Thoughts: Newegg support was top notch as usual, full store credit refund and prepaid return shipping. Haven't decided on a new board as of yet. EVGA or Gigabyte maybe, a little wary to purchase ASUS again because of the frequency of this issue. I will definitely be using nylon or cotton washers with this next installation.

1 out of 5 eggsRiddled with problems

Pros: Good features if they work.

Cons: Board is just not reliable.

Other Thoughts: I have used many ASUS boards in my builds, and this is the first I was disappointed with. It was riddled with problems from the start and unfortunately exceeded the RMA window before realizing it was the board at fault not other hardware. I cannot recommend using this board, if you do return it at the slightest sign of a problem, they will only get much worse.

1 out of 5 eggsMy First Asus Lemon?

Pros: Price and features let it sit nicely between cheap starter boards and high end boards.

Cons: PCIe ports are very close together making dual slot cards sit too close.
Quality control on these boards is terrible or perhaps the design is inherently flawed.

Other Thoughts: What the heck is with Asus on this board? It just has way too many issues. First board the RAID was a nightmare and Windows 7 would not even install. Next board had memory detection issues and the sound had static. Third and final board had hard lockups in Windows 7 about every hour. Every time the fault was a bad board? I am sticking with Asus for now, but getting a P6X58D instead.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst motherboard I've ever owned

Pros: Good... when it works.
Cheaper than some other higher-end boards, but you get what you pay for.

Cons: I bought this board thinking I could save a few bucks on my new build, while still allowing opportunity for multi-GPU expandability in the future. What a mistake I made.

My computer randomly turns itself off and refuses to turn back on. It's happens randomly and literally decides to work only when it wants to. I have absolutely no control over this. It's extremely frustrating because this will happen at any given time, and I have no idea if/when it's going to happen.

Fewer problems are more frustrating than a computer that refuses to boot (especially after shutting itself down and refusing to reboot after you were doing something important). I've troubleshooted extensively for the past year. I've literally tried everything, and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this motherboard is the problem.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently posting this from the family PC (mine won't boot right now... go figure). I'm extremely disappointed with Asus and this product. Prior to this, I considered them a top-of-the-line company and recommended their products to friends, family, co-workers, etc.

After putting up with this motherboard for the past year, I just can't deal with it anymore. After shelling out $200+ on this product, I shouldn't have to wake up every morning and cross my fingers, hoping that my PC decides to work today. How frustrating.

I'm currently debating whether or not I should get a replacement or just go with a completely new board.

1 out of 5 eggsfailed after 1 month

Pros: alot of great features, i got this board in a cyberpower pc i purched from newegg

Cons: board no longer will save the boot manager, i have to resave the boot drive on every startup

Other Thoughts: cyberpower will not let me send back just the board so it going to cost me $100 in shipping to fix a $200 board

1 out of 5 eggsDOA. Dead. Power on fail.

Pros: 6 memory slots.

Cons: DOA, not much else to say. You would think that they test these things before shipping them out. Now I'm stuck getting the same board back due to New Eggs replacement only policy on these boards. I would stay away from this board if I were able to start over. I cannot give 0 Egg rating apparently, so it's been inflated to a 1, which is being kind.

1 out of 5 eggsNever EVER buying an Asus motherboard again

Pros: -Light weight
-Fit in my case

Cons: -Motherboard failed to reboot after updating the Bios using a USB.
-Terrible customer support, I'm serious.. they just throw you around to other departments making you wait for hours.
- BSOD(Blue screen of Death) everytime I install Windows Vista 64bit or 32bit
-Windows boot manager error?

Other Thoughts: For a couple more bucks I should have gone with an EVGA motherboard and save me this torture. IT's so problematic.

I'm basically computerless(if that's even a word?) now. Waiting for Asus to call me back.

1 out of 5 eggs*sigh*

Pros: It had lots of potential for a great gaming computer.

Cons: Not completely sure what the issue is going on with this Mobo. It only insists on being able to detect only one of the 2GB sticks of DDR3 1333 (out of 3 2GB sticks) I know all the sticks are good since it can detect them when being placed one stick at a time. I've tried all the slot combos I can think of and it just wants to see 2GBs. I tweaked the BIOS to set it all manually and it will see all 6GBs until the computer is turned off, then it'll go back to only 2GB. I updated the BIOS and got same results. Reseating the CPU didn't change much either. I've been trying for about a month now to get this thing working and it's winning the fight so far.

Other Thoughts: Was really hoping that this was going to work correctly since everything else is some top of the line stuff.
I have: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

G.Skill 6GB DDR3 1333 240-Pin (3 x 2GB Sticks)

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130Watt

750 Watt PSU

PNY GeForce 250 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 Express 2.0 x16HDCP

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Don't bother.

Cons: I purchased multiples of this motherboard at the same time, and have had major issues with all of them.

The on-board network card has serious disconnect issues, sometimes turning itself off and on hundreds of times a minute. This brings Windows 7 to its knees.

The on-board sound card causes system stutters, and requires a reboot every hour to continue to work.

I've had other issues as well, but I'm getting too angry writing about it. The same problems happened on all of the boards -- not just one. ASUS ripped me off. They will never get another dime from me.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS MOTHERBOARD
