Bad Board - RMA/Warranty - Updated from Warranty Experience

Pros: Fast. Real Fast. BIOS Setup fairly easy with wizard but could also be very fine-grained for serious overclocking or special configurations. Had to RMA initially, but warranty process was fairly painless and technical support was helpful. I'm actually decently impressed with ASUS' Windows software. It wasn't nearly as "bloated" this time, and I really like the options for cooling.

Cons: First board was RMAed and defective.

Overall Review: Board sent to ASUS for warranty RMA. Will update this review and report on warranty experience once I get it back.

Problems with the board:
1. Three different DIMM sets were tried in all slots suspecting there was bad RAM. This wasn't the case. All memory failed a MemTest86+ test during the moving block test. This occurred even at native speeds before any overclocking was attempted.
2. Board will not reboot. Couldn't use restart option in Windows as the computer would just hang and not reboot once Windows shut itself down. Windows Updates were particularly painful.
3. Oddly, the power light LED pins never energized so the power light on the case didn't come on.
4. Random hangs/crashes when working in BIOS and failure to discover all of my USB drives on boot randomly, likely a result of the aforementioned "bad RAM" issue.

Hopefully, the replacement board will address all of the above issues.

Reviewed after Warranty Experience:
The warranty process went fairly smoothly. The new board didn't have problems and I was able to get my system up and running without the aforementioned problems. Updating to 5-Stars. The board is fast, has really good BIOS options, was relatively easy to setup and actually has semi-decent Windows drivers/software/interfacing. I'd buy an ASUS board again; I felt like I was taken care of and got a quality product.

Beautiful motherboard

Pros: - Been working for 2 years now with little issue
- Looks great in my case with my components
- Lots of IO options
- Would be great for overclocking if I actually did that (really under-utilised the board)
- Nice UEFI BIOS

Cons: - BIOS flashback button was stuck when I got it, lead to some interesting powering on rituals, but not enough to warrant loss of an egg.
- Bit overkill for my needs, could've settled for a cheaper board.
- An older board now, it is compatible with Kaby lake processors with a bios update (easy with bios flashback), but I'd recommend checking out newer 370 chipsets.

Overall Review: Look at newer chipset boards, like the Z370's

Great Mobo!

Pros: - Color scheme is what drove me to buy, made an arctic themed build
- Everything worked without a hitch
- Bios update provided upgrade from Skylake to Kaby

Cons: None

Overall Review: - Started the build and bought a G4400 processor just to get the build on it's feet, and switched to a 7600K after finding there was a BIOS update for Kaby
- Been a very stable board even with OC

Good board

Pros: -Looks great
-Zero issues over a year of ownership paired with an i7 6700k
-Bios is easy to use and makes changed in, updates are very easy with EZflash

Cons: -Orientation of SATA ports can be difficult to work with depending on your case
-Bundled software is not very good, Aisuite in particular is buggy and has never really worked well for me.

Worst board ever

Pros: It looks amazing. The white camo board looks absolutely brilliant in my white Deepcool Genome case.

Cons: I have had 2 of these boards. First one was RMA'ed due to booting once every 20 tries, audio not working correctly, and USB not working correctly. Ordered a second of this same model from somewhere other than newegg (To avoid the "Bad batch" assumption) and it has similar problems, but at least reliably boots. Audio drivers still fail to install and USB sometimes works right, sometimes doesn't regardless of front panel or rear panel.

I contacted Asus support twice and both times was provided very little in the way of answers. Asus support was responsive, but didn't seem interested beyond "RMA it" or "Use this link for updated drivers".

I upgraded later from one GTX 1080 to 2 in SLI. I get worse performance with two than I did with one (Worse performance such as 20-40 fps on WoW which could run on a Texas Instruments calculator)

At this point I am giving up on this model of board ever working right and my new MSI board arrived today.

Overall Review: I have a history with Asus motherboards and have never been disappointed before. While I would still recommend Asus as a brand, the Sabertooth z170 s model is trash and I would suggest avoiding it at all costs.

I expected better

Pros: Gorgeous motherboard.

Cons: Terrible motherboard.
My 3200 ram is useless.
Overclocking the cpu doesn't work very well either.

Overall Review: It's a shame that ASUS doesn't make their good motherboards look this nice. Hopefully the RMA goes through and I can get something decent this time around.

A Pretty Good Board

Pros: Plenty of Fan Headers, looks great is TUF of course and I love the white

Cons: Going from a Asus z170-A although this board LOOKS fantastic, it felt like a downgrade not having 5 way optimization (why not???) and also the motherboard always booted with the fans spinning too high..having to open up the AI suite and click the normal button on every boot is a bit silly ( I did use the UEFI fan calibration tool as well, it didn't fix anything). The z170-a has a little hud where you can just click the fan speed without having to open up AI Suite..I do not see why this more expensive board seems to have less features.

Overall Review: My own fault I ended bending some pins in the cpu socket, I doubt that is covered by warranty...getting a z270-a Prime to replace this as I liked the z170-a better than this.
