4 out of 5 eggsGood motherboard

Pros: easily installed. It was nice that zip ties were included and the different screws were in separate bags.

Easy getting into BIOS and inserting an i7 processor and memory.

Cons: I wouldn't use the SATA cables that are included. They are very stiff to use.

2 out of 5 eggsHard Drive issues

Pros: It was pretty. Liked the UEFI bios, somewhat.

Cons: I had issues with power and sleep and drives. During a wake operation or a boot I would not always see all my drives. Sometimes they would show up later, sometimes not. Tested the other sata controller, no luck. Updated firmware a couple times, played the update your driver game, etc. Never resolved the issue and RMA'd to Asus. Just got a response that I bent the pins and they'd like to charge me $150 for a repair having nothing to do with my RMA. Sooooo, going to try and find a board without these issues. I'm not even willing to argue with them over the diagnosis at this point. Sick of the board and the support.

Other Thoughts: I found their Asus utility somewhat problematic as it interfered with Windows default apps for the same purpose.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I do apologize that you experienced issues with your motherboard. If you would like to discuss this case further, please contact me through email and include your reference number within the subject line as well as your previous RMA number. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you had tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you. Cs#N141282875

1 out of 5 eggsNot Able To Get in to Bios

Pros: not sure if any..

Cons: Tried 5 different keyboards to get in to BIOS, pressed DEL or F2 at POST, will skip and go to the next screen and then shutdown in 15 seconds. Attempted to flash bios with USB but will not work. Played with it for 3 days and gave up. RMA'ed...
Got the second board and SATA port and FAN issues.
When computer idles fans are working normal, as soon as you start typing or browse the web, fans take off like crazy, annoying. Fans are set to normal in bios. Gave up with this board...

Other Thoughts: Called Asus, they hung up on me. Went with ASRock board and no regrets, everything works as it should. Sucks that Asus Quality went down the drain.. Used their boards with over 10 years..

1 out of 5 eggsSata Port Problems...

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Every time it boots to OS, I am missing one or two of my 9 Sata HDD's. Tried different cables, swapped ports around, installed new HDD's, issue still persists. Sometimes missing HDD will come back on its own in few minutes. Or need to reboot few times until all HDD's are recognized. Updated bios to the latest 2012 version, issue still persist. This board is having some serious issues with Sata Ports.

Other Thoughts: Will probably need to get different brand, been using Asus for years, never had this problems...

2 out of 5 eggsDissapointed

Pros: ASUS brand, solid design

Cons: Firmware and software support are severely lacking. performance

Other Thoughts: I have had many ASUS motherboards and always thought they were the best till I got mad at ASUS for not having a better means to update software and drivers. Also I don't thinks the bios updates a tested very well. The latest bios would not perform when activating boost options...

1 out of 5 eggsNo linux support

Pros: Nice board, but poor linux support (Ubuntu 14.04.1).

Cons: There is no support in lm-sensors for this board. You will not get any fan speed or control.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this board if you are running linux.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Gaming Board

Pros: * Dual Gigabit NICs
* Built in Wi-Fi
* Bluetooth
* AI suite 3 - Some have complained about this software being buggy but once you take the time to learn how it works it really is great software
* Z97 Chipset - Will be compatible with new Broadwell CPU
* Incredible BIOS - Tailor to specific needs
* Asus Quality

Cons: * The Power Control in AI Suite 3 Conflicts with Windows Power Control -This is where most bugs appear - Disabling Windows Power Control (Like sleep mode and such) and Allowing AI Suite 3 to Handle will save you some lock-ups - Over all Not worth losing an Egg since its a simple setting fix.

Other Thoughts: Overall an awesome board would buy again if I had the need to build another system.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but complex setup

Pros: Has almost every feature I could need for a gaming system. Tons of SATA options, M.2 on the board, wifi built in is great and the 5-way optimization does better than I could do by hand.

Cons: I bought a Plexor G512m6e for the board and it is lightning. But the board can't see if you set to boot only with UEFI. It can boot and install Legacy, but not UEFI. Contacted Asus, they said it should work. Contacted Plexor and they said it should work. But even with the latest bios (1304) on the motherboard and latest firmware (1.04) on the m6e, it just cannot see the drive if I force it to UEFI. Installs and works perfectly in Legacy.

I also bought Corsair 2400 that was listed as compatible with the motherboard but the BIOS only sees it as 1333. Running the 5-way optimizer ramped it up to 2448 though.

The biggest complaint... you have to create a spreadsheet to figure out which ports will be active. Turning on the m.2 port disables one of the PCIe Sata groups. Enabling some USBs disables some SATA ports. It would have been nice if ASUS had provided the same matrix I had to create by hand from the documentation and experimentation.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an overclocker but I really wanted more SATA ports so that I could dump the LSI card I was using for a drive array. I am an admitted data hoarder and crazy paranoid about drive failures so I run everything as RAID with only the boot drive being non-RAID. I was disappointed in the loss of SATA ports when enabling the m.2 but that m.2 is so fast. The system boots from off to Windows fully ready in 8 seconds without fastboot.

I bought it because my old system (5 years old) just didn't have the hoarse power for the newer multi-threaded games. Civilization V would take 15 minutes per turn once I got satellites and could see the world and all civilizations. That was unbearable. This machine cut that down to less than 4 minutes.

I find it annoying that it doesn't detect the DRAM even though I bought exactly what was listed on the system hardware compatibility for Corsair. It see the model number but not the speed. And it is annoying that the m.2 can't boot with UEFI. I don't see a big advantage for UEFI so living with Legacy MBR is fine. Just an annoyance to spend so much on the m6e instead of a cheaper SATA version not to get the UEFI.

4 out of 5 eggsContempt prior to investigation

Pros: I can't say enough about this mobo. It does have some quirks, but if Google becomes your friend and you do some investigating prior to writing it off as DOA, they do work themselves out. I wanted a board that had a little bit of everything and this one has it. M.2, SATA Express, plenty of SATA III connections, on board WiFi (not that I'll ever use it on a regular basis), 2 onboard LAN connections, obviously the list can go on and on, but you can read the specs. One thing that stood out was the ease of setting up RAID through the fantastic BIOS. The manual even says that you can only set up 4 drives, but if you pay attention to how you connect the drives to the SATA connectors making sure your drives you want in RAID are all connected to the Intel chipset, I believe that 6 drives can actually be done. I currently am running 5 WD Black 4tb drives in RAID 0 for a total of 18.1tb after Windows is done with their formatting. Just make sure you install the RAID driver as you get ready to install Windows and the Asus BIOS will take you right through the rest without ever having to hit <ctrl> <l> at POST to set up the RAID. XMP works great. BIOS flashback is a Godsend. Bottom line, this board is fantastic!

Cons: I'm not sure if it's truly a con, because this technology is still pretty new. I paired this board with an i7-4790k and this not being my first build expected there to be some hurdles. As for the Q Code 55, I got the same thing when I initally booted everything up. After some research, and some of my own trial and error testing, I was able to narrow down the issue. The 55 code points to a "memory not installed" error. I had all 4 slots filled with 8gb of G.Skill Ares RAM that I knew worked because I had just taken it out of my Sabertooth 990FX R2.0. First, I checked the vendors list and the RAM is not listed, but is Intel XMP ready so in theory the RAM should still work, even if it's not at the rated speed. Long story short, I narrowed it down to DIMM A1 and A2 causing the issue. If I installed RAM in either one of these slots I got the 55 error. If I installed RAM only in DIMM B1 or B2 the computer would work fine. More searching led to a couple of others that had the same type of issue. Not always the same DIMMs, but the same issue none the less. 2 DIMMs worked fine while 2 DIMMs caused the error. Apparently this CPU socket is very finicky when it comes to seating the CPU and the amount of pressure added by tightening down whatever your using to cool the CPU. I took everything back apart, cleaned everything up, made sure the CPU was seated properly, applied new thermal paste, snugged down the water pump on top being careful to not over tighten it, and yes EVERYTHING WORKED. All 32gb of RAM, not on the QVL I will also add, read in perfectly using the XMP switch on the motherboard.
