Motherboard failed at 2 years.9/27/2020 8:48:49 PM

Pros: Worked for about 2 years.

Cons: With this mother board for some reason on occasion a line tear like thing would run down my screen I always assumed it was my video card and that it was just a inconvenient glitch but now 2 years or so since I bought this for my build it crapped out on me. I restarted my computer after doing some software updates and uppon rebooting it up all my USB ports except 1 was working. I was trying to fix it but since only 1 usb port was working I couldn't try re flashing the bios, a catch 22 since I couldn't have my flash drive in and my keyboard hooked up at the same time. I am not sure why the motherboard bugged out on me but after trying to find out what was wrong in the bios, the motherboard refused to post after this. I ended up giving up on the board and replacing it. Since replacing this board with another model the screen tear is gone I haven't seen it since. The motherboard had some convenient features but utterly was just poorly made in its factory and must have shorted something out for one reason or another. It also corrupted my hard drive, oh and when this happened if I shut it down it wouldn't ever actually shut 100% down my fans would be on, lights on and all running, no display but it would still be on. Motherboard rapidly turned into a huge disappointment.

Overall Review: Nice features but cheaply made and it failed in the end to even post or have working USB ports.

Card works but getting coil whine with COD Modern Warfare 201911/3/2019 1:04:34 AM

Pros: Rungs games smoothly with high frame rates even demanding games.

Cons: Runs on the hot side. COIL WHILE WITH Call Of Duty MODERN WARFARE 2019. Not sure if its an issue with programming of the game or a driver issue or a defect in the card but I am getting coil whine while playing COD Modern Warfare 2019. Beware of this potential issue. I recently updated the driver to the latest driver and then installed this new COD game. While playing this game I hear quite audible coil whine and its almost constant while playing this game. I contacted EVGA and Nvidia about the issue and hope to get a solution. Possibly they may fix the drivers if that is an issue or who knows what will be done at this point. The noise is concerning.

Overall Review: Runs games very well. AUDIBLE COIL WHINE WITH COD MODERN WARFARE 2019 I contacted EVGA and Nvidia about the issue and hope to get a solution. Possibly they may fix the drivers if that is an issue or who knows what will be done at this point. The noise is concerning.

Dear valued customer, Thank you for your feedback.To help mitigate coil whine try the following, -test the graphics card in a secondary system to see if the coil whine will follow your graphics card. If it does not, another component could be causing the coil whine to be audible. -try enabling V-Sync in the NVIDIA control panel, click on Manager 3D Settings then click on Global Settings. Scroll down until you see Vertical Sync and enable it there. If the coil whine is still audible, please feel free to get in touch with EVGA technical support via email at via phone at 1.888.881.3842 and refer to ticket #3629977. Kind Regards, EVGA

Heat sink fan error what the heck12/7/2011 11:54:20 PM

Pros: The thing is fast and it recognized all 16 gigs of my ram. The games are running good.

Cons: Every time I boot I get a error message saying something about heat sink fan error, I have a liquid cooled system. So there is no heat sink which means there is no fan!!! so it needs to shut the hell up. How do I fix this? The thing was a head ache to get running. It would not recognize the hard drive to boot from at first and was a nightmare to finally get it to boot. I have windows 7 and after that it just kept trying to install drivers from windows 7 itself cause the comp to run like bugt durring this faze and had all kinds of install errors. Once finaly installed it was not recognising my video card. Finally after multi boots I was able to get the disc to open and install the rite drivers of the disk which solved many problems but not the fan problem. Also to unlock the 2 extra cores is not so straight forward. So frustrated already I do not even feel like figuring it out. The anger and frustration I have felt is why this is 1 egg.

Overall Review: Also the 1 egg might get their dirty basward hands to reply to this about how to fix this darn fan error its bull poopy

Dear Valued Customer, Sorry to hear about the issues. If you are not using a CPU fan (or the speed is low) the BIOS will issue a warning for safety reasons. You may set F1 halt to ignore in the Boot setting section of BIOS to prevent the board prompting you to press F1. Regards ASUS Customer Support
