2 out of 5 eggsDead after 1 month

Pros: Good while it lasted.

Cons: I had a similar experience like Bradley O. The motherboard was manufacturer reconditioned board. It worked for over a month. One day I turned it on and the motherboard wouldn't power up. I've tried 2 power supplies from my other working computers and the motherboard still doesn't power up.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value Board

Pros: Small form factor board with support for Haswell processors. Has all the features needed for a micro-ITX build. Solid board with Asus quality. Good trade-off of features and price. Includes a PCIE 2.0 16x slot, 6 GB/s SATA, USB3, and gigabit LAN.

Cons: Doesn't include RAID, WIFI, or a tricked out overclocking CPU power supply. I didn't need these for an ITX system build. Happy to save the $$$.

Other Thoughts: Works well with a core I7 processor and 16GB RAM in a Lian Li micro ITX case. The fastest, smallest, and quietest system I have put together. Overall I am very happy with it.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA first day

Pros: Good while it lasted.

Cons: I bought this board fixed it up and it worked i turned it off 3 hours later after installing everything then came back later that day It wouldn't turn on. At first i thought it was the case so i had the case replaced when i got a new case i put my rig back together and it turned on. Later that same day it wouldn't turn on I had an IT guy check it out and he stated the board was bad. I really liked the board just wished it worked

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Except for the CPU fan header

Pros: It is a very solid Motherboard for a cheap ITX option.

Cons: The only problem I have encountered thus far is that the CPU fan header for some reason needs a dummy fan in order to allow the system to boot. It will not even turn on at all without it.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: This thing deserves no pro's

Cons: everything

Other Thoughts: I have never made a comment before but this product deserves it. I ordered all my parts and built my rig, the computer would never post. At the time I had a strong assumption it was motherboard so I rma'd for another.

Got a new mobo, exactly this one, and had the same exact error of no post. Upon this dilemma I assumed it wasn't the mobo but something else. So, I took my main rig and switched all my known working parts onto this mobo, and all the parts for the current-building rig to my known working mobo, results?

My old rig with the CPU/RAM from the current-building rig posted fine. This garbage mobo from Asus still did not post with my known good parts. Essentially I got sent 2 DOA boards in a row from Asus. I called their little tech support and tried everything suggested to no avail.

Neither a 4770 OR a 4770k would post in the mobo, and the ram was tested and fine, along with the psu via multimeter.

End of the day, 2 Asus DOA mobo's in a row, and I also purchased a $1400 laptop from Asus that was DOA the other week.

I contacted Asus for even some little form of goodwill towards my situation via..anything considering this mess they put me through and they offered nothing, even told me to go through Newegg for replacements because they would take much longer and only send me back refurbished goods.

Needless to say Asus, you guys really sucked hard on this. Please don't buy this motherboard and go through the same hassle's I did shoppers. I have built 7 computers for family and friends and it really sucks to tell a buddy who gave you a $1000 that you can't get his computer working because you were sent a garbage mobo twice.

Manufacturer Response:
