1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk x2

Pros: None that I could find.

Cons: Wouldn't even POST. I have built many computers with ASUS boards, Dual video and water cooled. This board won't let me into the BIOS Setup no matter what. Ordered a replacement...and it does the same. ASUS says it's defective and return it...BOTH boards...REALLY!?. Also I was able to determine it was loaded with the earliest BIOS version 0309, and it won't boot to DOS to allow BIOS flash. I just sent second back and ordered more ASUS for me!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: I saw that this had mixed reviews with some people having hardware problems, but I took the chance and bought it. I've been using it for a couple weeks now with a core i5-4670, and I haven't had any problems.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: I reviewed earlier and complained about the update files. It turns out it was my router's fault, and it happened the same day. All the files I downloaded were getting corrupted. It wasn't the Asus site's fault.

Cons: None I've found.

2 out of 5 eggsWhat the hell?

Pros: Nice board, works great. Paired it with a 35w I3. The boot config menu is nice.

Cons: The CD drivers install fine, but most of the update files from the site are CORRUPT! I even tried using their little utility to download the files, as if it was even necessary. At least the updated video driver worked that way, but still, most of the files were corrupt. Tried with windows zip and 7-zip.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how a company can post corrupt files and leave them on for so long and not notice.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

If I may, I would like to help. Please contact me through email where we can discuss this case further. Within the contents, please include each driver version installed, what error was received, and the serial number of the motherboard. My email is Reference number: 3258771.

Thank you, and have a great day!

1 out of 5 eggsLow volume product for a reason

Pros: It somewhat works.

Cons: I bought a new 4770k with this motherboard, and it gives me CPU OVER VOLTAGE ERROR. I looked in bios and it's giving me cpu vccin at 4 volts! I checked my temps and it reads fine at around 30c. I changed it manually to 1.8v, but nope, still 4 v input!

But before that, the 'A' channels of memory are faulty. Any ram I stick in there prevent the machine from booting at all. I have to stick the ram into b1 and b2 to get it to boot up at all. I did lots of tests to figure it out. I then stuck my cpu in a friends motherboard and no errors, so the problem is with the mobo!

Other Thoughts: I guess lack of reviews means nobody wants it because it sucks. I tried to go against the stigmata, I failed.

I've always made Asus my first brand priority whenever I could. Asus laptops, notebooks, motherboards, monitors etc. This is the first asus product that has failed me, but I do have faith in their customer service. I sent them an email, but if their reply isn't satisfactory, I'm going to have to RMA through newegg before the 30 day limit.

I finally got my brother into the computer building hobby, and sadly this was his first experience. He paid me to purchase these parts for him. Should've went up another $50 to get a higher quality motherboard.

For now he's ignoring the cpu voltage error and running on 1 channel of memory. Maybe it's a dumb idea but he's got nothing else.

5 out of 5 eggsIT Guy

Pros: Overall a good choice. With Asus it sometimes can be hit or miss but got a good one right out of the box with this. Got this board for my wife's new build. Put 16g of gskill in it and a Core i5 with a 55ti video card. Everything runs great for what she does. No problems running any modern games.

Cons: None yet.

1 out of 5 eggs2 out of 4 ram slots are bad

Pros: evrything besides mem slots are fine.

Cons: 2 out of 4 memory slots are bad. bought 4x8gb memory that conformed to asus board specs according to chart on asus support site . tried every combination of sticks. only B1 and B2 work.-- very very disappointed in this board.

Other Thoughts: reading over several reviews for 1155 and 1150 ASUS boards, bad ram slots seems to be a common complaint. before ordering i wrote that off to sloppy user config. i guess not.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your feedback.

I am sorry you are having issues with the board. If you are still within the return period, I would suggest checking what options you have available for an exchange. If you are outside of the return period, please let me know, and I will set up a RMA for the board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Great simple board, forget all the Z77 overclocking stuff, save energy and money and get this board. Has all the basic features and runs great. Pretty solid board as it holds my 412 hyper plus easily on its side.

Cons: Color scheme is a bit interesting...
