3 out of 5 eggsTest all components and I/0s

Pros: When it briefly worked performance was as expected with Asus motherboards. Despite many negative reviews regarding Asus Customer Service my RMA was handled professionally, promptly.

Cons: Basically DOA. Some I/O ports loose especially HDMI. A2 -B2 ram dimm slots not reliably functional. Box had been opened, owner's manual front cover was bent backwards?? Board was slightly warped upon placement in new FD R5 case. Removed Board placed flat surface material on Mobo standoffs and case was level. Packaging only 1 slightly inflated air pillow providing very little protection for contents especially an electronically sensitive PCB. No bubble wrap as other mobos.

Other Thoughts: Difficult to determine cause for defective items with the exception of HDMI and Dimm Slots. Manufacturer or reseller handling or packaging. Slight warped PCB inclined to believe manufacturer error or possibly returned and resold item.

First Asus mobo I had to RMA in 20 years. However as mentioned Asus "COMPONENT" Customer Service was exceptional compared to Asus' Technical Support.

Will update rating upon replacing "Refurbished" mobo from Asus.

NOTE: Do your homework before purchasing Extended Replacement Warranty. It's not Replacement. Advice: Call Service Net for details.

3 out of 5 eggsCANNOT SLI

Pros: I will make this short and sweet, really great board for the price, it has been running rock solid with no issues. Easy to install. The BIOS simple to navigate for non tech savvy people.

Cons: Reason for 3 stars? Why have a board that has 2 x PCIe 3.0 slots but you cannot SLI? This is pretty frustrating.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Carlos,

I am sorry that you're disappointed that your motherboard cannot run SLI and the inconvenience it caused you. If you happen to have any questions or concerns, please email me at cl-justin@asus.com and use case number: N150841373 and I will do my best in assisting you.

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Pros: product works

Cons: i have submitted the rebate form, in accordance with the online registration. i have attempted to track the rebate by clicking the links provided in the email with no results. i then called asus to check status and was routed to RMA no one would help with the rebate status. it appears that this is the typical rip off tactic that i have heard about from other unsatisfied customers.

5 out of 5 eggsnew motherboard

Pros: easy to install and set up
software is well done and easy to use
overclocking is easy
exceptional shipping

Cons: Seems to boot slower than previous motherboard did.

Other Thoughts: Recently upgraded to this motherboard from my old one. The product arrived ONE DAY after being ordered (I selected 4-7 day standard shipping). Board is well labeled and user's guide is very informative. The swap was effortless and was done in about 20 minutes. No hang-ups with the board so far, and I am very pleased with its performance.

1 out of 5 eggsLook Elsewhere

Pros: Color scheme if you like Black and Gold

Cons: I wanted to like this board but too many problems to ever recommend.

Memory is completely unstable at X.M.P. values. I could only get stable operation at base stock settings. And Yes the memory is on the QVL list.

The DVI port does not function only puts monitor in sleep/stand by mode.

The benchmarks on memory is at least 4 times slower than the same memory on an Intel platform.

The Bios failed to update. I had to remove the battery and clear the CMOS to get it to update the Bios.

I have RMA'ed the motherboard twice at my expense only to have it sent back to me in the same exact broken condition.

The first time I trusted ASUS that the problem was fixed on their end. I then proceeded to RMA the memory and then the CPU only to find out that it was the motherboard all along. I explained all of this to ASUS got another RMA and again they sent it back to me unrepaired.

I have wasted an extra $100 on this system. They were unwilling to do an exchange for a different motherboard. Asus' tech support sucks too badly to take a chance on this motherboard.

When the motherboard came back to me from RMA there was no explanation of repairs done. I emailed tech support about this and they could not tell me what was fixed either. I had to escalate the issue to get a better response which feels to me to be a lie. This person told me that the components replaced are the ones that would fix the problem. So why does the problem still exist?

If components were replaced then at the very least they never tested the motherboard to make sure the repairs actually did address the problem. Either way tech support is incompetent and I can not recommend Asus' products anymore. I will not be buying their products anymore either.

Other Thoughts: The worst tech support experience ever.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you had with the unit.

For code 00, the CPU cannot be detected it can also happen if EPS 12V cable is not plugged in or PSU issue. Regarding your RMA, can we have the RMA number for us to review the status of the case.

If there is anything else that we can assist you regarding this matter please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and place the case #N150486544 in the subject line for reference.

Thank you for choosing ASUS products.

Best regards,
Jerry

4 out of 5 eggsfuture problems

Pros: Bought this board prob 6 months ago works nicely for normal operation and has a lot of cool little integrated add ons and tweaks like dimm ok module check and instant bios button and instant bios flash back button and etc.

Cons: Bought this board prob 6 months ago works nicely for normal operation but when it came to gaming i would always have problems. First of all memory modules are only operable at 8 gb max cant use a 16gb. (2x8gb) even though it has some frequencies that are usable at 16gb
Second this board was implemented with alot of future programming that they are waiting on to still add on to the MB
Second all of the extra bells and whistles interfere with alot of other programs such as zonealarm and OC apps when gaming

Other Thoughts: This MB could be a pretty awesome board a year or couple months from now but not right now

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MB!!!

Pros: Tons of features. Very easy to use and setup. When overclocking it is very easy to reset or save configurations. I have had CPU's running 5GHz, while just testing things out. In the end I lowered the GHz to around 4.5GHz to save power. Running RAID 1 with SDD. Very fast bootup with WIN 8.1. I prefer AMD RAID over Intel RAID. Have 2 - Intel RAID 01's and they are not as robost as AMD's RAID> (I also have 2 - AMD RAIDS, 1 - RAiD 10, 1 - RAID 1).

Cons: The new version of RAID for AMD requires you to BUY additional features that previous versions were for free. I did not know this when I bought this card. Not worth taking an Egg off, but make sure you know what you are getting for AMD RAID. In the end I like AMD RAID better then Intel's RAID - when feature comparison is done.
