4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: This makes my 3rd ASUS board in a row, all still working.

The board looks fantastic and has options galore. It seems of better quality than the normal Z77 boards, more metal screws and fasteners instead of plastic push thru ones.

I personally enjoy the ASUS bios.

Cons: I had to buy one of the most expensive boards in the product line in order to get what I wanted with a PS2 port. I'm using an old mechanical keyboard and don't have USB as an option. Board is still great though.

Other Thoughts: I have a 3570k overclocked to 4.4 on a corsair H110 in this machine. It's been rock solid for over a month now. Voltage 1.175 under full load and less than 1 at idle. Using -15 offset. Temps peek about 70-72c. Pretty happy with the setup.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Loving this motherboard. The dual lan is awesome, I bridged them together for some really cool speeds. Its a WS board but I am using it for gaming and it's doing the job rather nicely. The digital code readout will be extremely helpful if I ever need it. Always been a huge fan of asus and they did not let me down on this board. It's a little pricey but I recommend it. The extra features and capabilities are well worth it.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGood Build

Pros: Everything worked out of the box. Good looking board in my case. I've had it for almost a year now with no problems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've only built 3-4 computers. I tried an Asus board for my first build and everything worked. So I've stuck with Asus since and have had good luck.

This is probably more board than I needed as it is built "stock" right now. But if I ever want to OC or anything it has some capability.

2 out of 5 eggsWarrantyServce ??????

Pros: Well functioning board (when it is working)

Cons: Warranty Support. If you need a replacement under warranty, be prepared to be stunned by their lack of response and inability to handle a simple warranty cross ship. If you are thinking about this board for a business, be prepared to be down for at least 2 weeks to fix your system.

Other Thoughts: My experience of Asus customer service is appalling. You talk to their first line support and that is as far as they respond. They know nothing and forget about action by their escalation department ( virtually nonexistent)

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect workstation board

Pros: All 4pin PWM fan headers
Dual pci 3.0 x16 - perfect for using Quadro or FirePro cards in SLI/Crossfire
Very well laid out, easy to set up.
The Q connector is amazing.
With three clicks of the mouse, my ram was running on it's 1866mhz xmp profile.

Cons: Only two native, and two expansion sata 6gb/s slots, only one on-board usb 3 header. This is about the same for any z77 board though.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't originally going to opt for this board due to its cost, but in the end I chose to for the reliability factor after getting another manufacturer's board dead on arrival. I've never had a problem with an ASUS board over the many personal and customer builds I've done, and will continue to recommend them.

5 out of 5 eggsNice WS board

Pros: Nice Board, EZ bios, and SSD caching works well. Solid built board in stalled a 3770k, 16gb memory and another build completed with no headaches.

Cons: 0, with the exception of the driver disk and manual missing, but that is located on the ASUS website.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice and stable motherboard. Approachable Bios. On-board power button for testing outside of case.

Cons: Watch out for virtualizing; I setup a VM and attempted to run it without enabling VTx in BIOS and the computer rebooted without warning and without gracefully shutting down the host OS (Linux).

Other Thoughts: Great board; definitely worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very fast, runs everything perfectly on my new setup. The bios looks absolutely fantastic and is very user friendly.

Cons: I'm not sure if only I had this problem. The post message screen only blinks for a single frame, which made setting up my raid array a huge hassle. I could find no setting which would slow this down on purpose. I tried everything, and nothing seemed to work, including updating the bios, switching my keyboard into a 3.0 slot, taking it out of fast boot, and slowing down my processor.

Finally after an hour and a half of fiddling and an hour and a half of button mashing I finally got it to enter the raid utility screen. Hopefully this is the one and only time I will ever have to enter that screen.

Other Thoughts: If the only con that I will have to deal with is blazing fast speed, although extremely frustrating while it was happening, I think its still worthy of 5 eggs. I definitely gave up after 2 and a half hours, a definite thanks to a couple friends that convinced me to keep trying.
