  • newegg Digital Power Design for the CPU and iGPU All-new digital CPU power controls work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response efficiently delivering precision power. Accurate delivery reduces waste, and provides more stable CPU Vcore voltages. Users can adjust CPU PWM voltages and frequencies for various overclocking scenarios, with accurate input through UEFI BIOS tuning or the exclusive Asus interface. This proprietary design increases overclocking headroom to push performance to its full potential.
  • newegg 100% All High-quality Solid Capacitors Asus high-quality solid capacitors ensure a 5,000-hour lifespan – equivalent to 2.5 times longer than traditional capacitors. All capacitors pass testing under temperatures as high as 105°, and meet Japanese industrial standards to provide excellent durability and enhanced thermal capacity.
  • newegg EPU Tap into the world's first real-time PC power-saving chip through a simple onboard switch or the AI Suite II utility. Get total system-wide energy optimization by automatically detecting current PC loadings and intelligently moderating power consumption. This also reduces fan noise and extends component longevity!
  • newegg ASUS Exclusive USB 3.0 Boost With USB 3.0 Boost technology, USB transfer speeds are significantly increased up to 1.3x, enhancing an already impressive USB 3.0 transfer rate. Asus software automatically accelerates data speeds for compatible USB 3.0 peripherals without the need for any further user configuration.
  • newegg Extra Durable Stainless Steel Back I/O The motherboard's back I/O panels are made from strong, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, which is bonded with a thin layer of chromium oxide to enhance the already natural anti-corrosion properties of stainless steel. That’s why Asus stainless steel back I/O panels have a usage life three times longer compared to ordinary panels.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Straightforward, great price, easy of install

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This board is perfect. I even use the built in graphics since i do not game. Easy install with plenty of hardware.

My only advice is make sure to pay attention to the screws. The mounting screws use the fine threads.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board for the price. Unless you are building a mega powerful monstrosity this board will more than suffice.

Cons: Only 2 weeks in but no issues so far.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you check your intended RAM with ASUS's compatibility list. My first attempt should have worked by the numbers but wasn't on the list and the thing wouldn't post to bios.

Pros: Great motherboard and a very good price.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Z77-A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 ATX Motherboard.

Pros: Newegg's price, delivery, and service.
Very nicely packed for shipping upon arrival.
Rebate of a good amount.
It is a budget board, no fuss, no muss,
Loaded Win 7 in 20 min.
Board temp runs at 22C, nice and cool.
Intel 4000 onboard graphics.

Cons: Not a con, just be aware. You need to go right to Intel to get the drivers for USB 3.0. There is some sort of a patch Asus offers for these, it is a check that shows up in Windows Task Scheduler. It only creates errors. Delete the task. There is a update for the onboard graphics, once again go to Intel.

Other Thoughts: Plain and simple:
Asus Z77-A motherboard.
Intel 3570K LGA 1155.
Crucial M500 drive.
LG optical drive.
GSkill 2x4GB Ripjaws 1600Mhz memory.
Seasonic 620W PSU
Xigmatec CPU cooler
Antec 300 case.

3 out of 5 eggshaving boot up issue

Pros: easy to install, and lots of ports, and support newer intel chip..

Cons: having issue on boot up the computer often when having more than 2 dimms installed.. Had talked to the Asus couple times, they always want me to ONLY leave 1 dimm in the machine, then boot up, and shut down, then install the 2nd dimm.. it is so much trouble because i am building it for my relative who doesn't know anything about the computer.. Going to ask newegg to exchange the 2 (4GB) dimm for a single 8GB dimm. hopefull it will solve all issue.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard. If I may, I would like to help. I am sure you tried this already, but please make sure to install the memory into A2 and B2 slots. Also check that your memory is on the Qualified Vendors List (QVL). Below, I have included the link to our support site which has this list. Should you require further assistance, please let me know through email. 3428701.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Budget Board

Pros: You get more than what you pay for with this board. Very fast, plenty of connectors. The BIOS is way cool! Newegg and ASUS delivered again, this is the fourth time I have upgraded my mobo+cpu from Newegg (3rd for ASUS, my previous board was MSI, probably won't do that again) and I have yet to get a defective/doa piece of hardware.

Cons: There are a few issues with this. The first is that you probably won't be able to do SLI or Crossfire with this as the cards would be seated too close to eachother to allow adequate airflow to the top card but I knew that going in. The board is also a little flimsy, you need to provide some extra support when plugging int he 24 pin power and memory. In addition, I was scared that I would break it when pushing the heatsink into place.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad board for a budget build, it will get the job done. If you are looking for a pro board then go ahead and spend a few more bucks and read the reviews to ensure that you can fit two PCI-E graphics cards into it (if you wish to do so). Otherwise, great board!

3 out of 5 eggsOh Asus

Pros: The Board works as it should asi use it just for a general build running an i5 ivy.

Cons: The bad part was the Rebate , for the first time Asus Claimed they never received my Bar-code and that is were i said enough of asus. im over positive i send everything in as i been doing this for years and i reviewed my CCTV cameras in the shop to double check. maybe the Rebate section dropped it or something or disappeared in the mail but ASUS is messing up on these Rebates lately . i dont need the money i always end up giving it away to a friend or something but it just ticks you off , i cannot send another bar-code as i already send the main one in, and of course we are provided with one bar-code!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget gamer motherboard

Pros: 1 x pci-e 3.0 slot, 1 x 2.0 is great. Usb 3.0 rear plus usb 3.0 front. Enough ram slots. Great motherboard. Lots of pluses.

Cons: More usb 3.0 slots would have been nice, but that's ok. Just don't buy it for SLI or Crossfire as the pci-e slots only have one spot between them - personally I think you need two slots between two cards so that sufficient airflow can be achieved.

Other Thoughts: Are you a gamer on a budget? Buy this board.
