ASUS Maximus V FORMULA LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs 1st Board DOA, second board DOA after 5 months 07/09/2013

This review is from: ASUS Maximus V FORMULA LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Lots of features. When it runs, it is great

Cons: Poor reliability. Poor customer support. It have been over 2 days and no one has bothered to respond to my technical support request for a RMA. And this board is supposed to be something special with the ROG stuff. Asus is going downhill, and fast.

Other Thoughts: As the system builder at our office, I build 50+ systems a year, and I have always used ASUS. But now, this will change. I am going back to GB after this poor show of support from Asus.

Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-750 750W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good power supply, but don't be taken in by the rebate. They will NOT HONOR IT. They told me I did not submit the UPC, but I have a copy of it attached to original form. They will not take the copy as proof the original was sent.



G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: In single pairs, memory is awesome. If you are using 2 pairs, buy the matched set. Apparently, this matters with GSkill RAM.

Cons: I had to RMA my two sets because they worked great in single pairs but failed together as all four. Tried in 2 different MB's, same problem. Sent back to GSkill for RMA, they said they would send me back a matched set. That is not what I got back, just 2 more sets. After extensive memory testing with Memtest, new memory also fails with all four sticks on both Asus and ECS MB's. Disappointed with GSkill, as they said they would send a matched set and they did not. Will return and buy Corsair.

Other Thoughts: Note: I have a 16GB OCZ DDR 1600 Memory Set that I am running the system on that I removed from one of my other systems. So I know it not my MB.
Product = 5 eggs
Support = 1 egg

So I rated it 3 eggs total. Gskill should have sent me what they said they were going to. Wont buy GSkill EVER again.
