ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 8 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: N/A

Cons: See previouse reviews

Other Thoughts: Seems a workaround has been from by the owners of this motherboard. There's a there on the Insider forums that seems to have found a way to use another driver to "fix" the problem. Will be testing it myself.

Pros: NA

Cons: As I said, it does NOT support Windows 8.1 nor 10. There's no drivers for the network card. You used a 2009 chip on a motherboard released in 2012. I've done my homework on the issue. I get BSOD in Windows 8.1/10 with the network chip's driver being the culprit. The driver is from 3/2013 and does NOT support Windows 8.1/10. When you search for new driver on the ASUS website, there isn't even a network chip driver listed. In order to find it. I had to search under Windows 8.0 and that driver is older than the one released from Microsoft. So, yeah, it's not a good board when you go cheap and used out od date hardware in it's design and it's support is garbage. I will be replacing it first chance I get. No point keeping hardware that doesn't have updated drivers that cause Blue Screens of Death!

Other Thoughts: You should really know who you're talking to when you try to cover up an issue with your products. I'm a Network/Systems Administrator and system builder with over 15 years of experience. I immediately searched the file listed when i get the BSOD. In my old build of Windows 10, it's DPC_Watchdog_Violation in which network card driver come up in the search. If I try upgrading to the January Technical Release for Windows, it won't even install, it fails with a BSOD for e1i63x64.sys, which is the driver file for the network chip in the motherboard. Who thought it'd be smart to use a chip from 2009?!?!?

Pros: I thought it was a great motherboard till I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and started getting BSOD. Windows 10 won't even install, it BSoD on setup.

Cons: Causes BSOD in Windows 8.1/10 because of an old gigabit lan chip that has out dated drivers. Pretty pathetic for a top of the line motherboard. My old entry lvl Motherboard had no such problems. While I understand Windows 10 is a developer preview, it doesn't change the fact that the driver are out of date, 3-29-2013 MS release. the Intel and ASUS from their sites driver are even older.
