1 out of 5 eggsRear Audio broken - only green jack registers

Pros: Board looks nice in my case. lol
Well after plugging every possible speaker jack into the rear audio ports and after two versions of Realtek audio ver 3.74 and 3.76 drivers I have had no luck getting audio. I've been building PC since the mid 90's this stuff is for 5th graders. Realtek's software only detects when green or front LR is plugged in. when plugging in orange (cent/sub) and Black (REAR L/R) the program see that something was plugged in but I am unable to assign it and no sound plays from those ports. I tested this with separate speakers. I also tested it with a xonar 7.1 sound card which plays perfectly. I guess my xonar card is going back in as ASUS's RMA process seems to be less than what I would expect from the price of this board.

Cons: Overpriced plastic.
Rear I/O Sound issues
RMA Process is to slow
$329.99 must be for value boards, then the next day price drops $25

Other Thoughts: Is it possible that ASrock is building better boards than
it's parent company? - not good ASUS, you were once the best.

Time to see what EVGA has to offer

1 out of 5 eggsdont waste your money

Pros: It works barely

Cons: I would go into the issues but that would be a waste of time like the board itself" harddrive/ controller/ video/ network I sent this back to asus to have them check it out when it came back the network controller was not working I had to install a network card and now I have to monitor boot because the video wont come half the time it does the same with 6 deferent video boards. 5 year warranty I would RMA it again but then it may not boot up at all

Other Thoughts: asus when you send a product back from RMA it should work as intended not worse 5 years worth of trouble not my idea of something I want any more of.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review of 19Jul2013

Pros: Been reading all the reviews since my initial review on 19 July 2013. I can understand a few problems with some boards, but a lot of the poor ones I just don't get. I've updated components (i7-3930K to i7-4930K), now at 64 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHZ 1.5v ram, Rosewill Ultra case, and an ASUS DCUII GTX 780. Running Sony Vegas Pro 12 on it with no issues. Was also able to insert the USB 3.0 Front Panel cable from the case into the "GREEN Right-angled" USB 3.0 header on the motherboard, just like the manual said I could. Really people, no front USB 3.0? I'm hoping ASUS has another great Sabertooth for us in the LGA 2011-3 socket with Haswell-E processor and X99 chipset! So along with this current Sabertooth, I am also running a Z87 Sabertooth with an i7-4770K, and passed along my Z77 Sabertooth with i7-3770 to my Brother, which is doing fine. Come on Intel and just release the new chips and chipset!!!!! I need to keep JJ busy doing videos by buying another ASUS Sabertooth board! Plus, it will be fun to see JJ on the interview rounds with both Paul and Linus. Heck, maybe even Logan.
So, in short, I've been able to update from Sandy Bridge-E to Ivy Bridge-E, upgrade my RAM, upgrade my Video Card, run Windows 8 Pro 64-Bit to include the update to 8.1 with update 1, including recently adding the Samsung UD590D 4K Monitor to the fold, and the board is running fantastic!

Cons: Besides the issue using the EZ Flash BIOS as mentioned in my previous review, none.

Other Thoughts: As you can see, I do not list my self as a "Somewhat High" or "High" Tech Knowledge, as a true IT person is ALWAYS learning. I worked with IT for my last 12 years in the Navy, and retired from a School District after working in IT last year, but still don't consider myself as having that "All-knowing" tech knowledge that I see constantly displayed in reviews of not only Newegg's site, but other sites as well. You may think you are like Anand, but there is only one!

3 out of 5 eggsGREAT BOARD! TERRIBLE COMPANY

Pros: Everything was great with the board, loads of memory capacity, SOLID BUY.

Cons: ASUS RMA and repair is a joke. The board stopped getting power to the back bridge one day so I sent the board in, ASUS then held the board for 7 days to tell me that it was damaged which it wasn't. This is the second time dealing with their services and they are just awful. Everything except for my initial purchase has been a nightmare and cost me over $200 for damage I didn't do.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Massive on board system fans 5 ports. This board come with to fans onboard for the back panel are and the sata area. The software that comes with this is extremely helpful when it comes to heat. I have monitored temps and never above 45 cel and this is with a corsair water cooler h105i. no adapter needed for water cooler to motherboard. Manual is easy to follow and very good at explaining although it can always be better. I highly suggest reading all the manual for working the bios correctly. Read for five and setup might take you ten .. dont read and your talking 30 easy if it has been awhile since you built a machine.USB three header is great. Expansion slots are perfect as i added a pcie-1 card for extra usb three slots. Yes it is overkill but it is worth it. Especially the speed. I did have to la with setting on the bios to make it run the corsair dominator ram at 1866 but that was no problem after that which brings me back to REad the manual..
The biggest thing i noticed when i first received this board was heavy and weigh of just the board itself. So it has a bit of quality and i looked closely at the soldering on the board. which is very close if not military grade. It will handle heat. Now as for the cooling..... i do not recommend big air units as it might put a lot of stress on the board.
And if you move the machine after it might put stress on joints or parts of the board that will or could break but you wont see.

As far as the tweeks and the peeks.. this board is right on target and just about as good as it gets.. I have been a fan on MSI boards for years.... my first was an asus which died way back .. but not Asus has regain a bit of my trust... I will update in a month after the tests tweeks and what not..



my system build is ..

InWin GrOne case
Asus Sabertooth x79
I7-4930 chip
32gb Corsair Dominator 18866 memory
XFX R9-290a video card
anker pcie-1 usb3 add on card
Corsair h105i water cooler
LG BluRay burner
Rosewill Memory card reader
Muskin chronos 256 ssd
Thermal take 850 watt ps ..
and 10 fans moutned all over the case... and it is silent if you use Cougar fans.

Cons: not a single thing at all....

Other Thoughts: only thing i could think of is maybe angle the sata ports straight up in stead of angled off board.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a Beast

Pros: None. Looks nice and shiny though........

Cons: Do not by this Mb unless you like pulling your hair out. I have updated this stupid BIOS over a 100 times over the last four days. ASUS support phone disconnected. Now it,s all instant messaging. I got got this as part of a new egg/max PC package. Asus says ram not listed maybe bad CPU/mb or mb sensors.....How helpful. gotta go now and find my worst enemy and give him this board. bye!

Other Thoughts: I have been building machines since the. 80,s and I always got ASUS after this experiance ,no more

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Hard to give a good review since board doesn't see all the memory. Memory is form approved list and has never worked. Asus support is great but some where along the way Newegg never shipped the RMA I request through Asus

Cons: Ok, first off mem does not register all sticks. Locks up randomly on reboot it does an F1 /F2 to reset memory.
Bios update failed to correct. Since this is a production machine I tolerated the issue for 6 months and 2 bios updates.
