1 out of 5 eggsBurnt out.

Pros: For the month and a half it worked, it was decent.

Cons: Burnt out just after the month mark so I couldn't return it to newegg and Asus customer service is terrible to deal with.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board for the price.

Pros: Great value for a budget SLI board, excellent location for all connections. BIOS is pretty easy to navigate, with decent features, and the included software is great too. Bios was very easy to update, since you can literally pull the file from your hard drive. Very simple driver updates, as well.

Cons: None, really. It works flawlessly, so far.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace my A-S-Srock z77 Xtreme 4 that crapped out on my after about a year and a half. So far, so good.

3 out of 5 eggsRAM compatibility misleading.

Pros: Typical motherboard. Does mostly what it claims. Asus has always been a sound option.

Cons: DDR3-2400 with GSkill RAM will not post. Board won't post with any RAM configuration above 1600 actually.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good budget board

Pros: solid budget board. way better than buying a shoddy asrock or whatever. runs great, nice uefi/bios interface, lots of OC options, all around nice board for the price

Cons: The stinking case plate( the plate you pop in your case for all the connectors, usb, ethernet, etc) was so shoddy. be careful putting it in, almost messed up my nic jack.

Other Thoughts: havent tested OC yet but i dont really plan to with this rig

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Good features on a high-performance board where overclocking is not desired, ASUS quality, easy setup and tuning.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Bought this board after two bad experiences with the ASRock Z75 PRO 3 board. I'll end up paying $70 for this after rebate and it;'s well worth the $3 difference. Much better quality and great features for the price. 4-phase power means it's not great for OC, but if you're looking to run a Core i3 or locked i5 this board has everything you need for a single card setup. Installed and fired up without a hitch. I've never had a bad experience with an ASUS product.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Mobo

Pros: This motherboard worked great right out of the box. System is: Core i5 3330, 8GB 1600 Kingston HyperX Fury memory. All working great.

Cons: Asus QVL hardly has any vendors listed. I dont know what their deal is, but any memory module compatible wih Z77 chipset should work.

I have verified this motherboard to be compatible with: HyperX Fury White Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model HX316C10FWK2/8

1 out of 5 eggsBad board, RMA craziness followed

Pros: Ran fine for 30 minutes. Installed windows 7 and was just starting the updates when the board died.

Cons: Board fried. While installing windows updates there was a pop and when I looked down at my computer there was a stream of smoke coming out the top. When I powered down the tower and removed the mother board I found burn damage on a chip in the top right corner near label pq515 and pq516.

No biggie. Just return it, no big deal. Newegg is really good with their returns from what I've been told.

Nope. They claimed three things that voided warranty.

1) there were bent pins.
Bull! there were no bent pins when I shipped the board. The thing was fine but for the bad chip.

2) Thermal grease on the board.
Also bull! No grease on the board that was returned to me.

3) missing 2 Sata cables.
Ya I goofed here. I was bummed and didn't remember which box the darn things came in.

Ok so Newegg is not replacing my board. I check the website to see what is going to happen next and it says they are checking with Asus. That's cool.

Silence. I hear nothing for another week. I check the website again and my RMA says approved. Sweet getting a replacement. Cool!

More silence. I send an e-mail to newegg a couple days later asking what is going on. I get a response with a bot e-mail that has an invoice for a new motherboard and they it should ship as soon as there is an available board. Double sweet!

Not long after, I get a second e-mail from newegg that has another invoice for -1 quantity asus motherboard.


I check the site again and the site says that my RMA is still approved. .....what?

I get another e-mail from a real person saying that the board is not being replaced and that I need to contect ASUS and see if they are going to replace the board. poop...

Whatever. I wait another week and get my board back and low an behold, there is pin damage in the socket. Disappointment. Very little chance at a replacement at this point.

Here is the strange bit. I have the bad board on my desk RIGHT NOW, and the website RIGHT NOW says my RMA was approved.

Other Thoughts: Take lots of pictures before sending something back.

Never trust the newegg website.

Manufacturer Response:


I am sorry that the motherboard has damaged CPU pins. If you are interested, you have an option to have the unit shipped in for a repair quote. Just let me know through email whether or not you would like to set up this type of RMA. Thank you. 3766005.

4 out of 5 eggsBuild is done

Pros: Very happy with this board, works well with the Intel i5 cpu

Cons: If buying a combo make sure where your parts are coming from. I bought this MB as part of a super combo. Half the parts came from Ontario within three days, and the others came from NJ. four days later because courier doesn't work weekends.

Other Thoughts: Build is finished. Bought as part of a super combo. Very satisfied..
