1 out of 5 eggsFF CODE! BAD MOTHERBOARD

Pros: I own two of these. The first one works well.

Cons: I was building a second computer with one and have heard rumors of the FF code. The board didn't even boot up and a FF code was reading. No screen signal either. I have tried their technical support FAQ page and even connected the other board to it and it works fine. The second board just is a dud and ASUS Support is extremely hard to get a hold of. Confusing call times and their website sucks at getting a phone number to talk to someone.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD QUALITY BOARD !!

Pros: Looks nice!

Cons: This is my second board that has not worked, and now I have to send to Asus to get it repaired. The first would not fire up, and the second board fired up but no display and motherboard code FF comes up. I tried two different Nivida Cards 570 gtx and 780 gtx, plus two different power supplies. I'm using a AMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ witrh no luck!!!

Other Thoughts: I bought plenty of ROG boards and this one has been a nightmare!!

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate - ASUS officially scamming

Pros: No idea, thing blew out instantly.

Cons: No idea, thing blew out instantly.

Other Thoughts: Proper standoff usage, Good connections, PSU confirmed good, Proper anti-static measures taken.

First power up, chipset pops and pours smoke.

I think I can see damage there, but it could just be me seeing what I want to see.

Checked back of board for damage to make sure it didn't somehow magically short even with the standoffs and everything is clean.

Spent all disposable income for 2 years on this PC build.

Have an RMA in, but after doing research online I've become terrified that newegg is going to try and deny the return.

Will be furious if 3000+ dollars is wasted b/c I was sold a bad motherboard.

UPDATE - Sent board in. ASUS is denying warranty b/c of "user caused CPU pin damage"

I sent it in b/c the CHIPSET WAS SMOKING.... and they claim CPU pin damage.

Congrats newegg, you're about to get 2700 dollars of returns..

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsWhat is wrong with these boards?

Pros: First off, per previous reviews these board are excellent when you get one that works!

Cons: I am now 2 for 2 being DOA from NewEgg. (One that was ordered as NEW appeared to already have been opened and was missing parts).

Other Thoughts: Issue with first board was a FF post error. Second board CPU Fan and CPU Option fan ports were dead and would not power CPU Fan.

I have about 2 dozen of these installed in various machines with a very low error rate if they work out of the box. I believe only 3 of them have died after about 8 months of use.
