Fails on OS installations 3/16/2018 9:50:04 PM

Pros: All the components satisfied my requirements for my desired build.

Cons: This system constantly bsod when installing OS and even after successful installation.
attempted to install windows 10 but it never makes it past the loading spinning dots and then just bsod.
so next i tried to install windows 7 64bit and it bsod right before going into the installation screen.
I looked online and saw you have to change some of the bios settings for this to work so i did and made it through the installation successfully but soon after my first restart it bsod again then windows tries to repair and restore but bsods in a continuous loop from repair to bsod and i just gave up. i checked the note in the description for this board that you can only install win7 32/64 only if you're using a 6th generation intel cpu which I am i5-6400 cpu @ 2.70GHz
I even updated the bios via ez flash to bios Ver. 1001
Lastly I took the hdd out and plugged it into my asrock mobo z75 and everything booted up with no issues not one bsod
If can get some insight as to why this mobo is responding this way if im at fault or is it the mobo.
I'm all ears

Overall Review: Right now I'm neutral until I can determine which is at fault me or asus

Great little board from Asus 3/6/2018 1:27:15 PM

Pros: Quality built as I've come to expect from all Asus products. BIOS setup was a snap, no issues there. Here are the system specs I built using this motherboard:

- Intel Core i5-7500 Kaby Lake Quad-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 1151 65W BX80677I57500 Desktop Processor (N82E16819117730)
- G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Memory Kit Model F4-2133C15D-8GRR (N82E16820231829)
- WD Black 500GB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5003AZEX (N82E16822236345)
- GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1050 DirectX 12 GV-N1050OC-2GD 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card (N82E16814125919)
- EVGA 500 B1 100-B1-0500-KR 80+ BRONZE 500W Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply (N82E16817438012)
- Cooler Master N200 - Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Front 240mm Radiator Support and Ventilated Front Panel (N82E16811119274)
- Asus VE228H 21.5" Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers ASCR 10,000,000:1 (N82E16824236100)
- Logitech MK120 Wired USB Keyboard and Mouse - Black (N82E16823126097)
- Windows 10 Home - 64-bit - OEM (N82E16832416892)

The person I built the system for wanted a system between $850 and $900, medium gaming, and light CAD work. With the price of video cards skyrocketing (thanks coin miners) and RAM prices through the roof, this is what I came up with.

The system operates very well with the motherboard handling everything just fine.

Cons: Asus! What the heck? The manual does not contain a pinout diagram for the front panel connectors. Instead you need to rely on the silk-screened pinout assignments on the motherboard itself, which quite frankly is difficult to figure out. I've built many systems in the past few years utilizing Asus motherboards and this is the first time I have seen them skimp on documentation included. I hope this is not a trend. No reason to take off an egg, but I buy Asus because of the quality documentation as well as the rock solid reputation. Please consider keeping up the quality of your documentation.

Overall Review: If you purchase a 7th generation or above Intel CPU you will need to use Windows 10. Technically, Windows 7 will work just fine, but you'll need to manually perform security updates. Microsoft *really* wants you to buy Windows Spyware, so much so that they have crippled the update process of Windows 7 when using newer processors.

a Cadillac for the same price. Why buy Chevy? 12/2/2017 11:09:47 AM

Pros: robust, error-free, fast, good price

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: I went through Asrock and MSI boards with same spec. All had terrible M.2 slot problems. Finally settled with this board. Much more stable and reliable. I had some issues with ASUS boards back in LGA775 era though.. - hope this board lasts long.

Uh oh, I've got a faulty model. 10/5/2017 9:35:44 AM

Pros: -The design is pretty swell, and you won't have troubles plugging everything in. My set-up was a breeze to put together.
-Helpful troubleshooting: I was able to determine the error with my motherboard easily, as the beep codes confirmed my suspicion that the RAM slots are busted.
-Looks perfectly fine. I wanted a non-over the top mobo and this delivered.

Cons: -Well, my ram didn't work.
●I've tried every possible method of fixing the error, from Tomshardware's megathread for post error troubleshooting.
●This includes checking cpu/mobo pins, resetting Cmos by both removing the battery, followed by shorting the reset cmos circuit. Also includes testing every slot of ram with compatible ram that is confirmed to be functional.
●Tested ram on multiple computers, this motherboard is the only one with issues.
●Beep codes confirmed that it is a memory error.

Overall Review: -I have built 5 pcs in my time as a loyal PC-enthusiast. I have had parts with minor errors, but none that were totally DoA.
-I will run a breadboard test on this mobo shortly, but I'm certain it will end in vain.
-I will return this motherboard for a refund, this is more than likely the fault of DirectCanada who have recently been playing the role of crooks. The item took twenty days to ship, and the box it was received in was totally banged up and unacceptable. If you are purchasing anything from DirectCanada, look up their RECENT reviews, and educate yourself to the known risks before purchasing from them. They should be trustworthy soon, as they once were, but as of the date of this review (and a few months prior), they have been a totally unacceptable company to purchase from.
-I would not request and RMA as Asus motherboards have failed one too many times between me and my friends. This is certainly more of a personal judgment, so perhaps take it with a grain of salt, and don't be too afraid when purchasing your motherboards. Trash happens, and in my experience, it happens frequently with Asus motherboards (their other parts are totally fantastic, however). When it comes to motherboards, I will, without a doubt, stick to MSI until further notice.
