1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: heh

Cons: DOA - wouldn't boot with FX 6300, 8350, nothing

I couldn't believe how picky it was regarding ram. 2133 wouldn't work but 8gb out of an old machine did.

Other Thoughts: RMA'd and got a 990fx fatal1ty killer.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price tag

Pros: -Pretty sturdy
-excellent VRM cooling
-Actually works as advertised
-6+2 vrm design

Cons: -Less oddball USB, more standard USB 2.0 please

Other Thoughts: The board works as intended and advertised. The extra padding with the 6+2 vrm design is awesome. Girlfriend complains all the time how there are "too many strange USB ports" and not enough USB 2.0 ports. Other than that chuggs along just fine with a stock 8350. ASUS does it again.

1 out of 5 eggsPain

Pros: -Pretty, i really like the cool blue!
-it had high reviews

Cons: -Got a DOA one first time and requested a RMA.

Other Thoughts: The first one i received and then had to send back because it was DOA, got "lost" for almost a week and some. Even though they HAD my address correct at least the second time around on my account -UPS *the shipping company they use* did not have my full address so instead of coming that day or two it came on the 2nd of Jan* i sent my DOA board back on the 10th of Feb, they RECEIVED it on the 14th of FEB and didn't get around to processing it until FEB/28th. All that and i still got a another surprise when i found out that the second one was just as hopeless. *as much as the customer service was kind* they knew nothing about what was going on. one lady even told me that they were testing it and that there were notes attached to the RMA*that she never explained* and then another lady said, "frankly, we don't even have it yet." I wouldn't have cared about ANY of this and this probably wouldn't even have been an issue for me if the second mobo would have worked. But frankly, i am never ordering from Newegg again, i asked for a refund on all of my other products i bought to BUILD this darn thing and they couldn't give even that to me because the 30 day limit was up. So i am getting a refund on this single purchase *not at full price either* and i get to keep all the other useless parts because i "opened them" and the 30 days was up because i had to wait so long for the RMA to be - FOUND IN THEIR OWN DOCKING BAY-. No one, would just run down there find the guy that RECEIVED IT and ask him where he put it? What is the point of all this technology today if you can't do something right the SECOND TIME?? Not to mention TESTING the product before it LEAVES THE FACILITY, sure no problem testing it once THEY get it, but really? Two dead motherboards in a row? First time buyer and last time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard if you understand how to properly build your PC

Pros: Fan plugs are accessible out more than one side of the motherboard.
Easy to plug in all parts.

Cons: BIOS gave me a bit of trouble when first firing up.
Can be tight for install.

Other Thoughts: Recommend to anyone building a standard gaming build pc.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns everthing fine, OC'd Ram & CPU

Pros: First used my old Athlon processor in this, now a 6300, and as soon as it arrives, a 8350. I'll stop at that CPU, I am just trying to get this system up to speed of my I5.
As with all Asus MB's. the UEFI BIOS is so easy to work with. I am able to control all aspects of any overclocking.
I am using 2133 MHz Ram, which BIOS gives me a chance to select.
When OC'd by BIOS, there is a noticeable quickness with Turbo on and RAM set to 2133 MHz (1070mhz in Speccy)

Cons: Color is a drag, but after built, I often never see it again.
This probably won't be able to use Zen CPU, whenever they come out, but that is not why I got this.

Other Thoughts: After first having my boot drive in wrong Sata port, and having to spend some time with moving things around it booted up fine. I will still do some more upgrading via CPU and GPU and PSU in system, and then will stop trying anymore. This is a CAD/Business/ communication machine, so getting too crazy on upgrades isn't worth it. I just want a fast, stable system that will run 24/7. No fun things such as gaming in this.

2 out of 5 eggs Ram Compatibility Issues

Pros: Got it on sale
It has the latest (but still old) chipsets

Cons: Ram Incompatibility! This proved to be extremely frustrating. I have built over 20 computers and I have never seen such poor ram support. The board includes "MemOK!" function, however it doesn't seem to help at all. I had 2x2GB corsair ram modules which tested fine in both an Intel and AM3 motherboard. (I realize they are not on the qualified vendor list, but that list is ridiculously short anyways.) I could not get Windows 7 Professional x64 to utilize all of the available ram. System information claimed that only 1.92GB was usable. The Windows resource monitor told me that the remaining 2GB were "hardware reserved". Finally, after reading other reviews and forums I tried installing both ram modules into the same channel. It worked! Windows resource monitor told me only 18MB was hardware reserved, which is pretty normal. Unfortunately this means I am going to have a small performance hit because the computer is running the DDR3 in single channel instead of dual channel mode.

Other Thoughts: First, this board was a replacement for a Asrock motherboard which failed. I didn't want to throw my 1090T processor out so I bought another motherboard. I would never buy an AMD/ATI product again. No matter what company makes the motherboard or graphics card they always fail when it comes to driver support and compatibility.

The UEFI bios is terrible on this motherboard. I have used many Asus Intel motherboards and the menu selections are more intuitive. It was frustrating trying to find simple options that I needed.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes Not Work

Pros: - None

Cons: - 1st one didn't work
- Replacement worked for ONE day

Other Thoughts: Used this on my first build. Spent hours trying to figure out what was wrong with my build, turned out it was the MOBO. Waited weeks for my replacement. After installation, it worked and I was able to install the OS plus some software but then the next day it stopped working. Everything turns on, but the CPU light stays red and no output to the monitor. I tried a friends CPU (which has been tried and tested to be working) but the same problem persists. I wasted a good amount of my time waiting for and installing this MOBO just find out it doesn't work, TWICE. Going to settle for a refund and buy a different MOBO that's not from ASUS.
