Broke after almost 3 years 9/26/2018 1:44:12 PM

Pros: Color I guess.

Cons: Motherboard would crash when normal use. I think it was the north bridge.

Overall Review: I would not recommend ANYTHING Asus! I tried reaching out since I am still under warranty, but because the plastic that holds the RAM broke I was unable to get it fixed. Not to mention I broke the plastic the day I shipped it out because I couldn't get the RAM out to ship it. In the future, I will make sure to stay away from Asus anything.

Great Features, Tons of Driver Issues 7/25/2018 9:44:11 PM

Pros: Lots of great features: onboard Q-Code indicator power and reset buttons. "MemOK!" button for auto configuration of OC memory on a BIOS reset. "BIOS FlashBack" to do a bios load directly from a flashdrive. Great BIOS options and auto-overclock. Plenty of expansion slots, usb headers, etc.

Cons: I've been chasing gremlins on this board since 2015 (It does sit for long periods of time when broken due to lack of motivation to do my day job at home, troubleshoot, and dealing with support for RMAs). Best I can figure at this point is an issue with WHQL drivers for this board being pushed by Win 10 which persisted/returned after multiple clean installs and RMA of everything but my Proc at this point.

Tried multiple RMAs, bios versions, builds of win 10, many clean installs, driver versions from ASUS and other vendors directly, enabling/disabling of various power/efficiency settings and accessories (sound card chiefly) but the random system interrupts which are audible as audio "clicks" and get more frequent with longer uptime never went away. Randomly experienced various BSODs related to wdf01000.sys and ntoskrnl which get more frequent over time. The latest iteration of murphy's law with this board was a bsod during an attempted bios update (seeking resolution of aforementioned issues) and bricked the board. BIOS flashback was no help and no longer recognizes memory installed.

I've done a lot of research about these issues on this board and checked back for a couple years now and it seems many people are still having the same issues and finding neither any resolution online nor assistance from ASUS support.

Overall Review: I purchased an extended replacement warranty and will perform yet another RMA with the intent of selling the refurbished one when it arrives.

This makes two ROG boards in a row I've had significant driver issues with. The previous was a Maximus Gene-Z Z97 which constantly had memory management BSODs using upgrade drivers (no win10 drivers available, only 8). That board is now relegated to TV duty with Windows 8.

Despite being a long-time ASUS customer, I'll be taking a break from ASUS for at least several years; if I come back at all.

Stay away from ASUS until they get their "stuff" together.

Seems to work ok (so far) 5/21/2018 7:14:13 PM

Pros: I have an M8F mobo that I love. However, ASUS more than doubled the price on that board so I bought the M8H for my next build instead. So far it seems to be working well although I still have it in a breadboard state.

Cons: I was surprised that the BIOS on this board was over 2 years old. 1/2 an egg off for that. I gather this mobo has been sitting on a shelf for quite a while. Would have preferred another M8F but not at nearly $800!

Overall Review: It was REALLY difficult to get the Corsair H90 liquid cooler pump installed due to the mobo hole alignment. Don't know if this was a Corsair issue or an ASUS problem. Really had to fight with it to get it installed and it still might not be a solid fit as the CPU runs hotter under load than I expected it to.
