ASUS Z9PA-D8 ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs officially been scammed 11/04/2013

This review is from: ASUS Z9PA-D8 ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

Pros: nothing

Cons: the is one of the only boards with these features in an atx size

Other Thoughts: I finally gave up on dealing with ASUS. I got my first RMA back from ASUS giving me qcode-00 and no pre-post, no different than the way I sent it to them. After ASUS wasted weeks of my time back in fourth blaming all the other components in the system I bit the bullet and bought a second Z9PA-D8 from Newegg. It pre-posted just fine running down the q-codes like it should. Really ASUS? Way to take care of your customers. Why wouldn't you just send me a new board in the first place? I am really disappointed I don't have any other options for this build or else I would not be using any ASUS products on it. I have already started turning clients and customers away from ASUS and will no longer buy ASUS after this incident. I run a production facility and every moment that has passed where I didn't have a working system that I planned on having, money is being lost. Also there are a few E5 V2 processors out there probably going in the trash because ASUS convinced me that they where bad and to return them. What a waste. Until I get a refund for the not working board, I'd say this board costs double what it is listed because two are needed for one working system. I'd stay away from ASUS. most of the other big name companies I have dealt with have been great. I originally posted ASUS had good customer support, that's when they tricked me into thinking they where going to fix the original board, I couldn't imagine whey anyone would pay shipping both ways just for nothing but they did. They had absolutely no problem doing it.

1 out of 5 eggs No post still, now I am not happy 10/15/2013

This review is from: ASUS Z9PA-D8 ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

Pros: nothing at this point

Cons: this board still wont post for me. Second set up CPUs and tried tones of ram combos. ECC, non-ECC, 1.35v, 1.5v... everything I got. Stays at q-code 00. I may never buy an asus product ever again. I am dropping boatloads of money on this system. The least it could do is give me a post screen. I am blaming the motherboard at this point. Asus had me RMA it and shipped me back the exact same board saying it was fine. That is bull. Every hour this system is not working I loose money. ASUS probably wont do anything about that.

Pros: ATX, 2 PCI-E 3.0 x16, Asus has good support

Cons: I still can't get it to post. I have sent this board back to asus and they sent it back to me saying it was fine. Didn't cost me money to send out but this entire ordeal is costing me time this system could be making me money.

Other Thoughts: I don't really know how many eggs to give this board because I have no idea if it's the board or something else. I am starting to RMA all the components back one by one trying to get down to the bottom of the issue. The board doesn't even get to any point where it can give me code errors telling me what component is wrong if any. I'd call that a design issue though so maybe that is enough to to dock an egg.
