Love the hardware. Support needs work.

Pros: - Hardware quality, components, and overall appearance is very high-end
- Compact. E-ATX form factor that's really more like ATX
- Lots of functions, more than most can use

Cons: - Support documentation is sparse for more complex functions, doesn't explain very well
- Board I received had errors upon bios update; tech support led to bios boot loop

Overall Review: My criticism of this board is not really about the hardware. Its actually a beautiful board and well-constructed. All reviews I have read praised the VRMs and the different capabilities it has. From an overclocking perspective, it has functions that far exceed what I will likely use, but I really appreciate that its overbuilt. For example, I can't imagine using LN2, but there is an LN2 mode here specifically for that. The x-shape of the board is great. Even though the board is technically EATX, I was still able to install it in a Thermaltake Core P3, which allows a max ATX size. The x-shape allowed me to run the cables more easily through the case grommets on the side of the board. Everything about this board from a hardware perspective feels very high-end. My issue is primarily with the supporting documentation and support overall in general.

After updating the bios on this board to the latest version, I started encountering issues with slow boots and errors due to the Intel ME firmware. After contacting support, I was told to reset the CMOS and downgrade the bios, if necessary. I always thought it wasn't a good idea to downgrade a bios (Asus's support pages even says that you can't do this), but I followed the directions the support technician gave me. The CMOS reset (which is handily located on the I/O area) didn't work, so I downgraded the bios - which led to a bios boot loop. I tried using some of the functions like the bios switch, or the crashfree bios recovery, but I found the instructions and supporting documents to do this pretty lacking. Needless to say, none of these functions (which I hope I was even performing correctly) worked to get me out of the boot loop, and I had to RMA the board.

So instead of a new build, I've spent money on shipping to get my board fixed, and will be waiting about 3+ weeks for the RMA process. I really like the board and appreciate what Asus has done here, considering how unique this board is. I just wish the support documentation and support process was a little better.

Impressive still to this date

Pros: -Options in bios for tweakers let you control every aspect of your cpu/memory/disk/fans
-RGB lights /Design of the apex board is top notch, A+ build quality/ heavy duty materials used
-M.2 Dimm Slot . My case has a mesh front with two 200mm fans blowing right on my dual m.2 cards so it was a selling point for me.
-Booted right away without any problems with my i7-7700k, Gigabyte 2080 oc , 32gb CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 4133,
-Accessories in the box,
-$60 Rebate in the form of a mastercard was nice of them while being on sale from Newegg

Cons: -Only 4 Sata connectors on the board
-2 slots for ram instead of the usual 4. But knew that going into it of course.
-Sonic Suite software messes with my sound on games every time I boot up my pc. I had to uninstall it..

Overall Review: If you are looking for something powerful for your 7700k or 7700 then don't hesitate and grab this board.
Been a Asus fan since my g73jh-b1 rog laptop from 10+ years ago.

D.O.A

Pros: none could not get any power.....

Cons: had to install and uninstall then reinstall. When quality control is not on point! had to get an R M A and send it back, 2 weeks before I get the replacement....sucks all over poor quality control.

Overall Review: if the new one works properly, I might change my review. they did pay to have it next day back to me, but will take 9 day to get back to them.....

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your ASUS product feedback. I’m sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience, and please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. ASUS ensures all products are manufactured with materials that comply with industry's quality standard and each one undergoes intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is a random problem. Try taking the motherboard out of the case and set it on an insulated surface. Install JUST the CPU/cooler, and 1 stick of memory in the first slot. Plug in the 2 PSU cables to the MB. Connect the motherboard, and connect the monitor to the integrated video if it has it. Turn on the PSU. Momentarily short the 2 pins that the case's power button wires would connect to for starting. (You can also drag the case close enough to use the button's wires if you wish). If the issues persist, feel free to contact me if you have any technical or general questions. You can reach me at cl-adrian@asus.com. Your case for reference is N190500680.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

I had high hopes

Pros: I like how it has 4 pci slots and 3 of them are where you can actually use them in the case.

Cons: I bought 1 of these, installed it and the first pci slot wasn't working. I called ASUS support and the concluded that it was the first pci slot as being bad. I tried with 3 different video cards and monitors. All cards would work in the other slots but not in slot 1. I looked online for help and the only thing that seemed to fix it was a replacement. I sent off for my replacement and to my disappointment the first pci slot didn't work either. Called ASUS again and same conclusion. I gave up on this MB and went with something different. I don't know what the deal was, ASUS is a trusted brand, I couldn't believe that the MB wasn't work twice. I really wanted this to work.
