Rock solid mobo that lasted through years of gaming 11/18/2016 12:53:39 PM

Pros: No BIOS issues and overclocking was very easy on this. It's survived thousands of hours of gaming with very few issues. Boot LED made diagnosing issues during the build and during overclocking a breeze.

Cons: A port at the bottom that was unused shorted out and literally caught on fire. Even recent reviews show electrical issues and exploding capacitors. The port died, but the board itself experienced no issues after the incident. Looking at over 6 years of solid performance and few issues it's not worth knocking an egg off. But if you're looking at current ASUS products I would read through reviews for electrical issues.

Overall Review: Aside from the literal fire, it has held up like a champ for over 6 years. I am running 3 HDD's and 2 DVD burners with all the other stuff. The LED assist for booting has become a standard for all premium mobo's. I don't like the Triple RAM channel setup this had at the time. Unless you bought 6 sticks of ram at the time, you'd lose money buying individual sticks vs a 4 pack.

Hit or Miss 9/14/2013 7:49:37 PM

Pros: It works as intended for one of my boards.

Cons: My second board is just a complete paperweight. After 7 months, of randomly no POST on restart and having to shut down and start my PC about 5-6 times each time of event, it would finally start. However, one day in mid September 2011 it decided it just die on me, had to just upgrade MB and CPU then downgrade my RAM.

Overall Review: I own two of these boards, one has been working flawlessly for about 2 1/2 years. The second just wow. After 2 years of real life issues; I'm having issues just trying to find how to go through all the warranty process. Asus is not ranking very high in customer service at this point.

SATA headers are garbage 5/31/2013 9:34:25 AM

Pros: Generally I like the board and its options. HOWEVER...

Cons: Within a few months of using this board I started getting the message "no boot device found" when trying to boot up.

I would unplug the SATA cable and plug it into a different header and it would work. inevitably after a few boots id get the no boot device found message again and id have to repeat the process.
I have swapped out my SATA cables, blown any dust out with compressed air, cleaned the headers with denatured alcohol and updated the BIOS.
It is not an issue with the devices because I have the same issue with multiple drives.

I seriously regret ever buying this board because the current options for a good LGA1366 MB are extremely limited so I'm gonna be stuck buying a new CPU too.

Overall Review: I thought ASUS made high quality products. I was wrong. Live and learn.

Re: ASUS - Quality ??? Hmmm 9/2/2012 2:54:15 PM

Pros: Very good for overclocking, easy to setup when NOT overclocking and, in general a great board.

Cons: Asus's quality is in the toilet. The last two motherboards I have received have failed shortly after installation. Please note that THIS review is in direct response to ASUS's response shown here because I want it CLEAR what I have done so far and that I am STILL EXTREMELY UNHAPPY with Asus's resopnses to date.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

Have you tried updating the BIOS to the latest version. If you have already done so and are still experiencing problems, please consider RMA the motherboard by using our RMA submittal form at or call 1-812-282-2787.

My Response:
As stated above, I previously wrote a review, then ASUS posted their "Manufacturer response". This is a followup.

1) First I had to fill out an online form. This was on 8/7.
(Continued under "Other Thoughts")

Overall Review: Continued from above

2) I received return email on 8/13 telling me to call ASUS and the phone number.
3) I called on 8/13 (same day). After ~20 minutes on hold I reached a rep. Another 15-20 minute discussion he said he would RMA my board.
4) I received my RMA # and my board qualified for Cross Shipping. He said I should receive an email with cross ship instructions within 24-48 hours.
5) This email was received on 8/22 - a FULL 9 DAYS later and 7 DAYS LATER THAN I WAS TOLD.
6) I was away a few days, but faxed the paperwork to ASUS on 8/27. I opted to pay an ADDITIONAL $30 for "next day" shipping. I understood that it would take 2 days to process.
7) On 8/30 the motherboard should have arrived so I called. ASUS showed NOTHING in their system and this was just "a call center" so could not give me any supervisor. Said I would get an email within 24 hrs.

This customer service SUCKS and NO RESPONSE will help
