Most Critical Review

The Edsel of motherboards

ASUS ROG STRIX Z270E GAMING LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI DVI M.2 ATX Motherboard with Onboard AC Wi-Fi and USB 3.1
ASUS ROG STRIX Z270E GAMING LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI DVI M.2 ATX Motherboard with Onboard AC Wi-Fi and USB 3.1

Pros: The audio is good. The BIOS interface is really nice.

Cons: 1) Motherboard fails to boot every time. IOMOP64.sys error caused by ASUS software install. This bug was occurring in 2012. To fix it uninstall all ASUS software. Download using a second computer all chip set, Bios and software updates. Install the chip set in order of version and then do the same to the BIOs updates. Finally install only the current version of the ASUS software. This fixed my problem. Motherboard should not have been released with a bug dating back years. 2) G. SKILL RGB TridentZ not seen in Aura software. (It is certified to) Two or three weeks after writing this review ASUS posted v1.04.29 which fixes this bug. 3) RGB area on the motherboard fails to turn off with system shutdown. V1.04.29 also fixed this problem. 4) Tech support less than helpful with these problems.

Overall Review: This ASUS motherboard is a looser. Today 2/8/2017, I spent over 2 hours on the telephone with ASUS tech support at (812) 282-2787. First with Shedroy and then Michale. Michale after one hour disconnected the telephone call and never made a return call. I have at least three issues with this motherboard. 1) When powering off the computer the RGB display on the motherboard fails to turn off. I have the current BIOS version 701, chipset and Aura software. We have reinstalled the chipset and Aura software to no effect. Something is forcing the BIOS to reset the setting from RGB off to on, when the computer is off. 2) Aura Software does not see or effect the G .SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3866 (PC4 30900) Desktop Memory Model F4-3866C18D-16GTZR. 3) Sometimes the system completely fails to boot. Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix z270-e Gaming, i7-7700 K, Cooler Master H212 LED, G. Skill TridentZ RGB 16 GB, ASUS GTX 1070 OC, Intel SSD M.2 NvME, and Corsair RM850XPSU. If RGB is important to you and basic reliability, avoid this motherboard.

Great case

Works well, looks GREAT

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3866 (PC4 30900) Desktop Memory Model F4-3866C18D-16GTZR

Pros: Works as it should Great looking RGB LED's. Aura software does see and control it. v1.04.29

Cons: Shipped without the software to control it.

Overall Review: About two weeks after I installed the RAM, Aura software v1.04.29 was released which does work. AUSU Z270e motherboard rated at DDR4 3866, but not able to reach that speed even using XMP. I was able to reach 3600. The CPU may be a contributing factor in not reaching rated speed.

Late and still not delivered

24 Days and I still do not have the tool. Somehow this is a bit longer than the 8-15 days I was promised. I don't know what the item looks like as it is not delivered yet. But I had to select if the item is as described. So I selected no.
