5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A truly user friendly ATX motherboard. Right out of the box this motherboard was a breeze to use, all the way from initial startup to several months of regular day-in and day-out use. Perfect motherboard for gamers who are just getting into building their own system.

Cons: Not really any cons to mention about this motherboard

4 out of 5 eggssolid board - RAID sucks

Pros: Easy assemble and setup. Nice BIOS features. Board seems very stable.

Cons: On-board RAID function sucks but I have always found that to be the case with any RAID built-in. Even with read ahead and write back settings on RAID1 setup it gets frequent random "hangs" which make for slow saves and not very good for streaming music. I ordered an LSI RAID card before a week was up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: 3 x Pci-e slots, User friendly bios, supports 64GB RAM,

Cons: Requires overclocking to use PC2400 RAM, A lot of people have complained about ASUS customer service. Let's hope nothing goes wrong with the board so that I never have to find out how bad it really is.

Other Thoughts: I have had absolutely no problems with this board .

There are enough tools and slots are available in this board to keep me happy for at least the next 3-5 years assuming it lives that long

I have seen motherboards last for ten years so anything is possible.

5 out of 5 eggsI orderred a second one

Pros: Had it for 8 months with an AMD 10. All told this is the best computer I've ever owned.

Cons: When you set up an SSD it can be a bit tricky because the SSD does not show in the BIOS *unless* it is the ONLY hard drive in the system.

Other Thoughts: I use it with Win 8.1 and I *like* win 8.1. I still have a desktop. Computer starts up from sleep mode in five seconds (really!) and boots to my desktop (which, even on a cold start, you get to win7 style desktop by clicking on one tile). instead of using the start tab lower left you hit window key and can start anything you want. Hit it again back to desktop. Anyyhow that has nothing to do wtih this system which is fast and wonderful. I am using it with 16 gigs but my second build, more economy minded, is 8 gigs RAM to start but it is nice to know I can add more when/if I want. For home entertainment system I have a video card on first build but for second build video card is unnecessary (graphics built into AMD 10).

Learning how to build my own computer really liberated me from the bad decisions and poor quality that go into standard offerings. Buy a gold rated power supply to go with this system.

Pros: As you can tell by my last review just how fast ASUS RMA policy is. It's back and working, just that quick.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsRebuttal F2A85-V PRO

Pros: ASUS service is top notch. Read other thoughts

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: ASUS called and walked me thru my problems step by step. The board was not posting past the processor. I sent the board back to ASUS, RMA, I'm waiting for the results. You wouldn't believe how much they stand for the quality of their products. It just might have been a bad CPU, and never before having purchased a bad CPU, I blamed it on the board. ASUS Thank You for Your Support. John

1 out of 5 eggsF2A85-V Pro

Pros: None, other than it looks good in the case.

Cons: I had thought that ASUS was top of the line. They are bottom feeders. The support was,,, horrendous. I believe that they work with companies that they get a kickback from... G.SKILL, CRUCIAL, TEAM, does not post in their board. Support said "look at the memory compatibility list". They are supposed to be a top line company, all memory should be compatible. I paid top dollar for this memory. I asked what memory will work? I was told to RMA it, have you read the reviews, 20 days and no new board, that one had to be a RMA also. A subservient board no doubt in my mind. I've been building since 1998, but according to ASUS, I must have wired it wrong!!! Yea right.

Other Thoughts: Can you imagine a $400.00 board and go thru this?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, and we can discuss this case further. Within the email, please include the serial number of the motherboard and the RMA number. 3534515.
