Its a meh motherboard and ROG has gone downhill a bit 8/25/2019 9:55:15 AM

Pros: The LED on the motherboard was cool
I liked the 3 M2 holders
The 10Gb card was dope
It came with a lot of stuff for the pro gamer

Cons: EATX - that was annoying at first

My situation was that it was super slow. A couple of other reviewers said that the ram compatibility thing was it and I suspect that was my problem. My computer ran like a dog because I bought the right ram but off by 1 model # (I read it wrong) and it ruined my experience.

For the money spent? I should've went MSI or Gigabyte. The Threadripper is cool but ... I really had an awful time with this motherboard.

I returned it and went Ryzen 9 3900x

Overall Review: It's a really long story how I got here but I had bought a Ryzen 2700x and Asus ROG motherboard and the mobo died. I decided, cause I got a warranty, to just take the $$$ and upgrade to this. I ran this for maybe like 9 months and I couldn't handle it anymore. Took 1 min to post and 5 to load into windows. I suspect a lot of it was ram incompatibility which was super annoying.

I am a bit disappointed in ASUS ROG motherboards of late (as I have gone through 2 in the last year) and I just switched to Gigabyte.
FWIW - their monitors are dope tho.

I'd not get this for a couple of reasons - ram incompatibilities and I don't trust ASUS motherboards anymore. Also, The Ryzen 3 run close to some of the threadrippers at less power and it's an AM4 socket so your motherboard selection is bigger than like the 5 for threadripper.

Solid Motherboard, but is lacking for the price. 4/24/2019 8:04:41 PM

Pros: -Heavy. Very solid construction. Didn't feel flimsy like other boards I've handled in the past.
-Lots of features in the BIOS for overclocking to your heart's content
-The RGB LED lighting is one of the coolest features I've ever had on a board.
-Installation was a snap. The DIMM2 card for mounting two of the three supported M.2 drives as dead simple. I installed a Samsung 970 Pro 512GB for OS and a Samsung 970 Evo 2TB for Games. Booted to Windows on a USB 3.0 flash drive and Windows detected and installed to the 512GB without issue.
-Windows install took ~4 minutes! Of course, this install speed will vary based on installation media and destination drive.
-Stable. No overclocking attempted, but without any tweaking to the BIOS, other selecting the boot order of my devices and configuring my RAM, I didn't need to do anything in BIOS to actually get Windows installed. This was, by far, one of the easiest Windows installations I've ever had.

Cons: -Only one USB 2.0 header. I know USB 3.x is the future, but I have several USB 2.0 device which plug into the headers on the motherboard. I had to use a USB 2.0 expansion card to connect my three devices.
-No motherboard mounting screws. For $540, you would think ASUS could include the normal screws required for attaching the board to the case. The instructions clearly state you need a bag of screws. Thankfully, I've amassed computer screws over the years and this wasn't a problem, but if someone doesn't have the mounting screws already for a new build, you're out of luck.
-Latest Aura software will NOT detect my motherboard and allow me to tweak the RGB lighting. I had to manually download and install the oldest available version to get it to work. If I try to upgrade to the latest version, I encounter a fatal error and installation fails.
-Boot times. Getting through POST takes about 45 seconds. My old ASUS Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 booted in easily 1/3 time from a cold boot to Windows login. Once I make it through POST, Windows takes <5 seconds to boot.

Overall Review: Overall, solid board, runs great and has been stable.

DONT BUY THIS BOARD 1/28/2019 8:05:06 PM

Pros: it has all the features you can think of and the great ASUS name

Cons: you have to get lucky to get a working board...i have been building rigs since the giant computer shopper magazine in the supermarket days.. I could not get this board to work.. in windows it crashes and freezes all the time and locks up.. tried all kinds of memory and even got the CPU replaced..latest BIOS.. no changes... the board is a lemon. To make it worse i have it in a elaborate hardpipe watercool setup.. and its a monster to remove all of that to take the board out. dont be like me.. dont buy this board.. you might get lucky.. you might not.

Overall Review: never had a board cost this much new out the box just lay an egg... dissapointed in ASUS and the other reviews here back me up.

Love it 1/18/2019 5:16:33 PM

Pros: to many to list

Cons: the live dash software is very buggy (For little LCD display on the mother board). Aura software could be better.
I really like the LCD on the MB, great innovation to see error codes and temps! Good job ROG!

Overall Review: Great MB

not a single problem in a whole year 1/15/2019 10:44:00 PM

Pros: Cool lighting, very fast and easy to build with, love the onboard audio

Cons: Its EATX, so it doesn't fit in a most of the Mid Tower case.

Overall Review: I am receiving points in the ROG Elite Rewards loyalty program for my review

Faulty production or rough shipping? 1/1/2019 1:32:35 AM

Pros: Looks stunning and eye catching with tasteful rgb. Premounted io is a big plus as well. Loads of slots for all the ram.

Cons: Only con for me was my motherboard came with one pin broken off,effectively rendering it useless. Sad to see that something like this would pass by asus. Will be back to purchase another one in the distant future assuming the tr4 socket stays in trend.

Overall Review: A bit pricey, but its a ROG product, so it makes sense

Pros: Nice looking board with on board wifi and other useful stuff as well

Cons: I have had issue since day one with the board running slow in games with the 2950x processor and even when shutting half cores off it still had frame rates like 31 fps in world of warcraft.

A month or so after having the board it gave me a BSOD and on reboot it just gets stuck in an endless loop while checking the cpu.

Newegg issued a refund since they think the board is toast already
