1 out of 5 eggsI cannot trust ASUS any longer

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Lighted Motherboard.

Cons: Pricey

Other Thoughts: I called ASUS to repair my mobo because I bought this motherboard and I found bent pins on it. So I filed a account on ASUS website and I called them. I asked if I sent them my retail box could they resend me everything I sent them. I taped my receipt to the retail box. I was told I would receive everything I sent them. And as long as I paid the labor and parts price within 7 days of bill issue, all would be good. So I paid the next day I got the bill online. I received the board 20-25 days later. And now I see my retail box and receipt were kept. This really angers me because I was intending of selling this board in the original box. Now I wont be able too because ASUS scammed me. I asked them to mark on the package please return to customer. I will no longer buy anything to do with ASUS from this point on. I prefer to buy EVGA or MSI instead.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Manuel,

I am sorry for the experience that you had to go through. It may be a misunderstanding since we do generally do not send back items in the original box back to the owners. This is why we only require the unit itself. I understnad that you were told you receive back your items, but it could of been a huge misunderstanding once we sent back your unit. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at cl-justin@asus.com . Your case # for reference is N150791247

Thanks for choosing ASUS

Regards,
Justin

5 out of 5 eggsESD BAG WARNING!

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: ok, let me start by saying I fit this in my full tower cooler master haf x easily. very proud of my open box find, but I have a word of caution for first time builders like myself. loads of mobo's get returned as "DOA" as a tech geek I found this strange, especially from asus in recent years. so after researching the labels on my mobo esd bag and asus and various other things I found out that, and yes you salty rig builders I'm new, the strange clear like plastic bag the mobo comes in is actually a micro metal filament that grounds the interior completely to protect the mobo. this means the outside is super charged! so if you so much as hold the outside of the bag and reach in to grab the mobo without proper grounding you will fry that sucker like a pizza roll. best way to do it, slice it open hold it upside down and let the mobo drop onto a soft surface, then place the bag anywhere away from your equipment in order to work with it. also you may pick up the charge from it so ground yourself. happy building!

Cons: none, thrilled with it!

5 out of 5 eggsUEFI BIOS awesomeness - rest is good too.

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: 1) This motherboard manual is on the 'net. Thank you ASUS. Potential Customers can go read it for free. It was very helpful to me.
2) My first UEFI BIOS and it is nice to use a mouse (will discuss rest under Cons). It was able to find my BIOS in the BIOS Flashback usb slot and update the BIOS to the latest from ASUS
3) This mobo is compatible with the Noctua D15 if you are air-cooling
4) Has all the Overclock parameters I need and then some.
5) Board has only 4 pin PWM headers with either 3 or 4 pin fans easily controlled via BIOS
6) Intel LAN
7) Everything worked the first time as opposed to my last 2 boards (Intel and EVGA)
8) ASUS R.O.G. gives buyer impression part selection is at least average or better
9) Nice buttons on naked board like power, reset, etc (see manual and pictures)

Cons: 1) The BIOS is very large for those used to the older ones. There were times I was overclocking that I knew what I wanted but could not recall where ASUS decided to file that feature. The BIOS could be tidier but it certainly has the features. Leaving the unnecessary complexity of the overclocking, the rest of the BIOS including Fan Control is well placed and easily understood
2) don't particularly like how ASUS defaults to the "SYNC all Cores" to get the turbo to 4.4 instead of 4.2 but can change back to auto to cool CPU if needed. There are too many "automatic" features for one used to old school overclocking making it a bit tedious. But, I am not sure this is unique to ASUS

Other Thoughts: R.O.G. Decided to finally get one and did not want the half-water cooled one. I custom water-cooled for over 5 years and am trying out air again. And I am a gamer. Glad ASUS made a board for me. Thanks.

4 out of 5 eggsSecond try is the charm.

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Working, this board is user friendly imo. when I first installed the board it was smooth and clean. everything fit and worked together well. The bios are very easy to use, there is also a notice mode in the bios to make it even more simple. When actually on my computer I cannot complain, it works great, LAN is good, audio is what I expected, and downloading the drivers was easy. I would recommend this board.

Cons: Unfortunately all of this was on the second try. I had my first motherboard for around 5 days before it randomly died when in the middle of playing a game. I called Asus for an RMA which as always was unhelpful. it turns out I was still within my 30 day return from newegg and it worked great. Be careful though because if any of the pins are damaged when returning your board, you will not get a return from newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus turning to junk brand

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nothing good about this brand anymore

Cons: Problem with LAN, PCI start after 3 mounts.
Worst Customer Service Experience ever. No body knows what they doing every person has a own rule. No more asus

Other Thoughts: Tried to contact ASUS to RMA this bad board. I talked to 4 or 5 different people, always having the call dropped towards the end of the conversation when they were taking down my address to set up the RMA. They would never call back after the call dropped even after I had made sure they had my call back number during the initial call. I deal with tech manufacturers almost daily and this is by far the worst experience I have ever had. I am an IT consultant and direct a lot of businesses and home users on what to buy, and you can make sure that ASUS will NEVER be recommended again. EVER.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Arash,

I am sorry for the all the trouble you had to go through in attempting to get an RMA and the inconvenience it may have caused. I would love to help you with your problem. Please contact me at cl-justin@asus.com and I will help you to the best of my abilities. Your case # for reference is N150769094

Thanks for choosing ASUS

4 out of 5 eggsHad a tiny hiccup

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very large and spaced board
LED's are subtle and nice

Cons: The USB 3.0 port feels a bit loose
The Soundstage button being on the inside makes it hard to use without pulling the cover off.

Other Thoughts: When I received the piece I was buying parts to build a computer and left it on my desk. When I received the remaining parts I went to install all of them, but when I went to install the CPU the pins inside were bent. I then shipped my motherboard to ASUS for repairs to it and in the RMA sheet it left a spot for PSU and HDD so I figured why not. It said it would take about 3 weeks for finalization on the motherboard. 5 WEEKS later I finally got my motherboard back after 3 calls to the company, but didn't have my HDD or PSU.
I called them immediately and they said that a payment hadn't been made to receive those back. Excuse me while I ponder why the RMA asks for the items but then now they are listed as third party and I have to pay extra to receive them. No one could tell me where my items were either and about after 5 more calls each day asking why I hadn't received an email or info on my PSU and HDD I admit I got a bit rude. It turns out that the eform for the returning PSU and HDD was never sent to me.. Even in the end I got my pieces back, but I also noticed that this motherboard wasn't mine repaired or a new one. It was some other one they had around because the cover for the MIC IN is stripped off and there is a deep scuff on the piece around the chipset slot.

A technical issue I had with the motherboard was BSOD's that were listed as driver issues, but I installed the drivers from the disk sent to me.. I was then later given an ASUS disk for the motherboard that was a newer code for updated drivers. I haven't had an issue since, but why did I have an out of date driver disk.

Overall, motherboard was great, ASUS tech support was nice (aside from the last gentleman I talked to that refused to let me talk and continued to cut me off.) but nothing really got done until I was rude.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh Performance Motherboard

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I benchmarked my desktop after installing this board and was delighted with the performance for the CPU, RAM (overclocked through the motherboards XMP BIOS setting), and SSD hard drive. This motherboard will provide the high performance that many customers are looking for.

Cons: The first unit that I received was clearly defective. I was able to return it, but the hassle of having to replace a defective part decreases my rating a bit.

4 out of 5 eggsLove is not perfect

This review is from: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Being awesome should not be this easy. Bios makes even me want to overclock, and the supplied drivers and software are spot-on.

Cons: Only one stumble. Be advised the M.2 slot does not support SATA, only PCI-E (which is of course better). Just had to RMA an unopened SSD and reorder the correct one, luckily caught it in the review section

Other Thoughts: I use my high power system for Blender animation, and this 'puter is fierce. Need MAD horsepower for rendering. But my i7 4790 CPU only test render is right at top of spec. Just waiting for my SSD and Nvidia GPU to really hit top speed.
