1 out of 5 eggsWAS a good motherboard

Pros: Lots of USB ports both 2.0 and 3.0
lots of sata ports
looks nice and has room for multiple graphics card and other cards

Cons: died after a year and 3 months for no reason
you get to deal with ASUS customer support if anything does go wrong

was told they would send a technician to my home for a fee of $170 to tell me "yup its the motherboard, time to get a new one." Thanks ASUS for the worst customer support anyone could ask for

Other Thoughts: I will not buy any more ASUS products and urge anyone else to follow suit. they do not claim responsibility for faulty hardware and just tell customers to spend more and more money.

1 out of 5 eggsIf It Worked Maybe...

Pros: I loved the fact it had so many SATA connections and USB 3.0. The flash bios option was convenient as well and the military grade boasting caught my attention and had very good success with ASUS in the past....

Cons: ...but the board never posted for me. I RMAed it 3 times and gave up after 3 just because I needed my computer back and crossing my fingers was getting annoying and I didn't want to spend a lot of money figuring out what it might be that was causing it to not work. I replaced the CPU and still no success. With it working it might be pretty cool and I really wanted it to work.

There is a chance it was some of my hardware CPU 1: AMD Phenom II 1090T processor, CPU 2: AMD FX-8320 processor.

Other Thoughts: My computer is still not back online as I'm choosing a different motherboard to go with but still was hoping that board would have been the one.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsSexy MoBo

Pros: Great layout, Easy overclocking, Coloring is very universal for any color case matching, Supports up to the FX-8350 CPU which at the time i bought it was one of the very best CPU's you could get from AMD. This board as a lot of cool hardware features like a Memory test button, Direct to Bios button all on the board which if you are into overclocking and have those days when you end up sitting by your computer scratching your head at what went wrong really comes in handy.

Cons: Not any i can think of. I had this board for over a year, brought my computer over to many places never an issue. My old house before i moved had no carpet with two cats so it got dusty quick and i rarely cleaned it and still never had an issue.

Other Thoughts: This board will tell you if your CPU is bad if your RAM is bad or if your Harddrive is bad all by LED light indicators on the board which is nice imo. I have this board running 24 gigs of ram all 4 slots at 1866mhz no probelm, OC FX-8350 @ 4.5ghz no problem and even thou PCI-E 3.0 isn't really utilized these days with todays video cards its still nice to have the option has most boards do not have PCI-E3.0.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Stays very Cool, Worked right out of the Box....My Temps stay at 27C even under load.

Cons: When buying this Board keep in mind that the board will default to 1333mhz operating speed for memory. You have to manually set the timings and MHz in the UFEI. I could not get my memory to run at 1866mhz which the board is rated for. Best I could do was 1800mhz without windows re-booting.

Other Thoughts: This Board is very fast and you can't beat the price. I have always been a ASUS customer and once again ASUS comes through......

4 out of 5 eggsNice and quiet

Pros: Worked pretty much out of the box. Well packaged and feels heavy and durable. Has enough space to install both of my xfx R9 270X cards. Plenty of Case fan hookups and boots MUCH faster than my old GA-MA790FX-UD5P. Bios is easy to use for setting up RAM and what ever else you may want to do in there.

Cons: Sound Quit working after 6 days. Tried uninstalling all sound devices and reinstalling from mobo cd. nothing. Asks what I plugged in and tells me when I unplug something. Shows sound is supposed to be coming out during tests but nothing can be heard. Tried a new set of speakers and smae thing. Even after os reload no sound. On the plus side I now have some extra speakers for my phone.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad board but I ended up getting a bad one. If I can't figure something out, I'm going to to RMA it as defective. With having the second best rating of AM3+ boards and being the second most expensive one I thought it was a safe buy

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsonboard sound went out

Pros: decent board, just wish I would have went with ole faithful gigabyte...

have had a lot of small issues, bios resetting, hard time reading drives once ina while now it seems like every sound card I put in it keeps going out, even sent it to them once when I first got it having issues just for them to tell me nothing wrong with it but the bios needed upgrading which was a lie because I had already tried that before sending it to them

Cons: its still running even tho no sound, had to use the HDMI on my video to my tv for sound

Other Thoughts: save the money, go for a bargain board, you'll have the same chance at success

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

Pros: None right now because it does not work.

Cons: Does not work.
Also the speaker for beep codes was poorly sauntered together and came apart when we attempted to install it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this hoping to create my first desk top. I bought things piece by piece which is why it took me so long to learn that this motherboard does not work. We went through and checked all the other pieces and compatibility of everything and finally decided that it was for sure the motherboard not working. I know that it is too late to return it through the Newegg site but I could really use some advice on how to return it for a functional motherboard through the manufacturer site. My friends that own the same motherboard love theirs so I really hope to get a working one eventually. :(

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Sheba,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard and it is currently not working. I would be happy to help you and set up an RMA to have your board sent in for service. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, including your reference number within the subject line, and we can discuss this case further. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you have tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Optionally you can contact ASUS support (live chat or phone in) to have them create a case and RMA as well if you have any issues with the form. Thank you. Cs#N141034759
