1 out of 5 eggsSorry I bought ti

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: Horrible, I have had 3 motherboards now. I have tried the Core I5-4460 and Core I5-4590S. When I tell it to reboot nothing happens besides it shutting down. Dead in the water. Even when the software tells it to reboot it might come back up in 3 minutes after windows is done. I have never had this much problems with ASUS normally great motherboards and never had a problem before this board. Spoke with Asus Tech Support multiple times they wanted me to send the boards back to them why would I want to get a referbished board for something that's only a week old. So I sent back to Newegg and they have been more then helpful with my situation going out of the way for me. I will never buy this model board again and now with the way things are I am going a totally different manufacturer on the brand for socket 1150 motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board!

Pros: Works as advertised! Amazing quality! I used ASUS for a long time and they proved to be great!

Cons: No real cons...

Other Thoughts: As far as bent pin comments go - PEOPLE - this is not manufacturer defect it is merely physical damage! More than likely done by you while installing CPU! Recommend to get your head out of your bottom when assembling PC.

1 out of 5 eggsmotherboard is junk

Pros: none since the cpu warning light came up when I installed the parts

Cons: The motherboard came to me DOA. I put everything in, new ram, up, and motherboard and was greeted with the cpu warning light and set the cpu again with the same results. The cpu went in smooth as butter with no problems. I take it to a local computer repair place and they tell me that some cpu pins were bent and that is was most likely a manufacturing defect and I send it back for a refund. New egg refused refund and is sending me a paper weight. DO NOT BUY this board because if there is any problems with the cpu slot new egg will not give a refund. I do not plan I buying anything else from them again.

Other Thoughts: I added insult was the fact that I was almost charged fifteen dollars to send back a defaulty product and will not get a refund. I have been putting together pcs for at least ten years or so I know how to put in cpu slot and I know I did not bend the pins

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard. Our QA department should have tested the board prior to its boxing and shipping. Although of course we can not control the environment that our products are in once they are distributed. At your earliest convenience, please contact me through email, including your reference number within the subject line, and we can discuss this case further. Thank you. Cs#N140733848

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Visually pleasing, sturdy.

Cons: First noticed that the box was somewhat damaged upon arrival from the Carrier (or possibly previously opened), proceeded to open up the box, saw that the CPU socket cover was not seated correctly, and guess what! Bent pins. Sent it in for RMA and it has been received, most likely will be denied, with the RMA technicians usually claiming that it is the users fault. ASUS does not honor bent pins on their mobo warranties either. Extremely disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Can't believe these things get through factory inspection sometimes. Wish that the RMA process would be faster.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

We're sorry to hear about your experience with the motherboard. Our motherboards go through rigorous inspection before leaving the factory, and all come with a protective CPU socket cover to prevent accidental damage to the socket pins. We recommend sending the board in for RMA-repair. Unfortunately, this type of damage is not covered under warranty and a standard repair cost will apply. To proceed, please contact us again at 1-812-282-2787 or use the online RMA submittal form at: http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me below. Thank you. 3715621.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA MB

Pros: None

Cons: MB was DOA on arrival. Returned the MB on RMA. New Egg claims the MB was user damaged. I claim it was not, if it was damaged then it was damaged at the time of manufacturing. Disappointed because I've never had this problem with New Egg before, but it will be the last time as I'm through with NE.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I am sorry that you are having issues with the motherboard.

Since you posted this review, has this case been resolved? If not, please let me know through email. Thank you. 3715779.

3 out of 5 eggsProbably works...

Pros: Looks great.

Cons: Possibly DOA, a few of the middle CPU socket pins were bent, and I'm not sure what the return policy is, so I bought the warranty for it. Just have to wait for that to get here to figure out what my next step is.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if the box is supposed to be sealed (it wasn't) when shipped. That would probably help.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

I am sorry that the installation of the system did not go as planned. Since you set up the system, have you contacted Newegg to see what options are available in this case? If not, I am here to help should you need any assistance. My email is cl-mark@asus.com. Your reference number for this case is 3342915.
