Pros: Seen nothing but great reviews for this board. That is when it is fully functional.

Cons: Unfortunately, mine wasn't. It was DoA. everything would fire up including all fans but it wouldn't POST and enter BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Really looking forward to getting a functional board. Seems to be a great chipset on a great board.

Pros: nice board all the features you could ask for 4 pci express slots

Cons: bad board DOA

Other Thoughts: i got this as an open box i figured id take a chance and i lost board was doa cpu light stayed on fans not working board smelled burndt what the funny part is look at the other reviews all the same problem i bet we all got the same board looking at the dates i guess they dont test them before they re sell them

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize that the motherboard was DOA out of the box.

A red CPU_LED on the motherboard means that either there's a problem with the CPU itself, the socket on the motherboard, or that the motherboard needs a BIOS update to support your CPU.
Try replacing the CPU you currently have with another one and retest. If you believe the socket is damaged, please RMA the motherboard to us at http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call 1-812-282-2787. Also, look on the side of a motherboard that has a long bar code sticker and look at the last four digits of that code. This is the BIOS version that the motherboard was shipped with. It will tell us if the motherboard needs a new BIOS to support your CPU. This link will tell you what BIOS version is needed to support your CPU http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/Crosshair_V_Formula/#CPUS

Open box motherboards carry a 90 day only warranty. New motherboards have a 3 year warranty.

Regards,
Benson

1 out of 5 eggsRefurbished?

Pros: Looks like it could be a nice board.

Cons: Apparently this refurbished product was not at all tested. Only 2 of the 7 fan plugs work. Also the bios and utility software state that my 3.4 GHz Phenom II x4 BE is running at rated speed, but CPU-Z states 800 Mhz and it feels that way. WEI is only 3.8 now when my older motherboard stated 7.4.

Other Thoughts: I hope that this was an honest mistake and not someone trying to pass along a bad board for whatever reason... the price I'll have to pay to return the board makes it definitely not worth it. Dissatisfied with this purchase.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

Have you tried another fan into the headers that do not work? If the fan headers are indeed non-functional, please RMA the motherboard to us at http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call 1-812-282-2787.

Depending on BIOS settings, your CPU will down-clock to a lower speed on idle. This is normal. If the CPU runs at 800MHz all the time even when benchmarking, there may be a problem with the CPU. If this issue still occurs, please contact me at cl-benson@asus.com reference #C1037-2962. Please include all system parts and specs when replying.

Regards,

2 out of 5 eggsDoA

Pros: One of the best rated 990FX boards, and a huge discount if you get one that works.

Cons: DoA. CPU LED was on indicating a bad CPU, but I tested with 2 different CPU's which both work in other motherboards.

Other Thoughts: At least Newegg is good about RMA's, but it cost me $13 more to ship it back to them. I guess technically I can go through 3-4 more RMA's before it would have been cheaper to buy the full priced retail boxed motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsgood mb bad luck

Pros: ive heard a bunch of good song stuff about rog.

Cons: went to hook up my pc. but it wouldn't power up. it would try to but kill its self. i took the whole set up my local computer store. i belived it was just a bad psu. we hooked up two brand new 770 watt psu's (seperatly) but they wouldnt power up. no fan movement. it did light up the oc and start and reset bottons

Other Thoughts: i might have had a lemon with this guy but its a uncommon occurrence of the industrial revolution. I've only took off one egg because of the inconvenience of this problem. i hope someone from ASUS will contact me.

ps i love the color scheme. and i will continue to recommend ASUS products.
