The new BIOS also lets you name individual SATA ports so you can easily identify them to save time when defining boot sequences and other drive-related settings.

With ROG Pulse, a cool flashing ROG logo indicates system activity, and very importantly, the helpful SSD Secure Erase has been added, restoring SSD speed from inside the BIOS and with no need for less compatible third party utilities. Click the upper right tab to learn more.


SSD Secure Erase

Recover lost performance. Back to high speed
SSD performance degrades with time due to overwrite action. ROG is the world's first motherboard brand to integrate SSD Secure Erase into UEFI BIOS for better compatibility and easier use, offering the best removal method to completely delete all data on an SSD to recover lost performance and restore factory speeds.


Four-Way SLI™ / CrossFireX™ Support

Perfect spacing and excellent PCI Express 3.0 performance
Unique ROG design supports four-way SLI™ / CrossFireX™ and enables their full power for latency-free graphics, while an onboard PCIe 3.0 x16 switch allows you to adjust configurations for the best graphics output.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Fantastic ASUS motherboard

Pros: Everything. Mated this with a 4790k at 1.35v which resulted in an easy 4.8Ghz on water. The OC panel is a nice touch. I mounted mine in a 5.25 bay to monitor CPU temp. My last build on a Rampage III Extreme lasted for five years of heavy OCing ... I would never look to anyone else for motherboards. LOVE ASUS.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsIssues Upon Arrival

Pros: N/A

Cons: Not sure if I received a used board or just bad luck, but board came in with two issues. 1) the tabs did not line up correctly for an LGA1150 socket and 2) pins on the CPU slot seemed to be bent or malformed at random spots. Awaiting a replacement and hopefully will have better things to say in an edit after it arrives!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jay,

I am sorry to read your review about the worst ASUS Support you've experienced and about the motherboard arriving with some part missing from the product boxing packaging. If the outside of the packaging was damaged along with the motherboard, it's more than likely happened during
shipping. Since it was shipped from Newegg's warehouse, they should be able to provide you with a new replacement. If you have any questions or inquiries regarding your manufactures warranty, feel free to email at with reference case number # N150379964.

ASUS Customer Loyalty is dedicated in helping you and all other ASUS customers.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

3 out of 5 eggsAwsome board BUT buggy software

Pros: This board is FAST. Very easy to configure and overclock when you know what you are doing. All the cables are very high quality.

Cons: I am VERY upset at the quality of software provided. ASUS AI Suite 3 has a really BAD bug. It has to do with the fan control feature. Before I overclocked anything I just clicked on the "auto test fan control speed." THEN the system became unstable. Windows 7 memory dump screens. I recovered a past stable time and removed the software and everything runs great. So I found a patch. Reinstalled and BAM. The system became unstable. I have since removed it and the system runs great.

Other Thoughts: I looked online and I KNOW this is a problem many others are having. ASUS should fix this problem. Hell should have been beta tested before they release it.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome but took way too long to fix BIOS issues

Pros: Lots and lots of features, simple and in depth, for overclocking CPU, RAM, etc. I'm able to run a stable overclock of 5.0 Ghz on my 4770k at 1.36 v but normally run it at 4.7Ghz at 1.2 v just to save a little bit of power when I'm gaming and not doing video editing. This is easy due to the ability to switch between different overclocking profiles on the fly which, for someone like me, is perfect. I'm able to maintain such high overclocks at such a low voltage due to all the tweaking features this motherboard has and winning the silicon lottery with my CPU.

Cons: I had some pretty big issues when with this board when I first got it. I run 2 x GTX 780's in my system and had to set them up in a strange configuration in order to get them to function properly. This is due to a problem in the BIOS that refuses to recognize a graphics card in slot B2 if there is a card in slot 1(any type of card). I don't know when it was finally fixed but I went through 3 different BIOS updates before it was finally fixed with my 4th update. This was an issue that had been reported from day 1 of this board being launched and it shouldn't take that long to get an update that would fix it.

Other Thoughts: KEEP YOUR BIOS UPDATED. If you don't have the knowledge to do so or just don't don't want to then you probably shouldn't be looking at a board in this price range anyways. This by all means is an awesome board with a ton or features overclocking and enthusiast builders but being just that means that ASUS should have dedicated more time to getting a properly working BIOS out hence the 3 egg rating.

Also, I wouldn't recommend using the one touch optimization feature. I tried it out and it gave me a low overclock at a rather high voltage. This board is made for enthusiast users who know how to overclock so you are wasting money to get this board if you don't plan on tweaking the overclock and voltage yourself.
