1 out of 5 eggsNo POST - This board is a timesink

Pros: Great specs
Impressive 16 threads computing
Very responsive tech support from Asus - Thank you Brian_Han@​asus.com and others
Extremely GENEROUS ARS from Asus
Works with 64-bit Slackware 13.1 - really well ... when it is working

Cons: NO POST - two P7F-C/4L boards in a row.

The 1st board never worked because there was NO POST.

To get the 2nd board working, its CMOS has to be reset every time after shutdown and it has simply stopped working after one week - does not even respond to CMOS reset any more - only the green LED is still on, CPU and case fan stops running, and power supply fan also stop running --- all new and working parts (read below)

Asus, please only sell solid products like you've always done in past. Please EITHER recall this board (notice how often this board is offered as OPEN BOX!) OR let me know EXACTLY how to get it REALLY WORKING (over years, I've built about 10 PCs - not a lot but never had problems with the other boards). Either way, I will still buy Asus in the future. But I will think very hard in buying the next Asus if I do not know WHY this board does not work.

I do not want to spend any more of my weekends "BETA testing" this board.

Other Thoughts: To isolate cause(s) of NO POST, I followed tech support's advice and did a "barebone" system with only Xeno 3450, Kingston KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G in two orange slots, a power supply, a keyboard on top of a cardboard (to avoid grounding problem), and reset CMOS (with and without NEW battery). Still NO POST. Power supplies (I tried two) are solid - I even jumped green and black connections to make sure they work.

After three weekends and several weeknights, I am ready to buy an INTEL/ SUPERMICRO board to salvage all the parts I bought for this board.

It is a shame. I have always thought Asus is top of line; I own an EEEPC netbook with a solid state hard disk when SS hd was new to market, write this review w/ an Asus LCD, listen to Air (Asus Internet Radio) and later I will skype with Asus AiGuru.

All I want from Asus is to tell me there is nothing more to try and to "Move on with Intel or Supermicro boards". Still, thanks Asus for AiGuru and Air; they are great!

Good Bye Asu

4 out of 5 eggsCurious

Pros: See Other Thoughts

Cons: See Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts: I'm always puzzled when I see someone order a desktop CPU to put into a SERVER motherboard. If you're wanting to build a cheap "server", then just buy all desktop components and run a server OS. The whole reason to buy a server motherboard to to take advantage of things like ECC RDIMM, PCI-X, etc, which aren't available on desktop motherboards.

Have you updated the board to the latest BIOS?

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work with IntelG6950

Pros: No "pro" yet. I need it to support PCI adapter boards. Almost all new stuff is PCIe. If this MB works, it will save a rebuild project that is mission critical.

Cons: I did not get it to POST until I ripped an Intel 3430 from a vital working computer and dropped it into this MB. After 3 weeks of computer hell, it did light up. The ASUS web site specifically says the G6950 I had been trying to use would work. Ha. I still don't know if this MB will work. I just saw POST with the 3430.

Other Thoughts: I think Asus should take the hit on the cost of returning the G6950 CPU. Not Newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues you are experiencing with getting this board to POST. This server motherboard does support the G6950 CPU right out of the box with the initial BIOS revision for this board. It's possible that there could be an issue with the type of memory that you are using. Please see the chart below that I've attached to this reply which shows which types of memory are compatible with this server motherboard.

Sincerely,

ASUS Support Team
