This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Worked fine for about a month and a half

Cons: I bought this board back in November and it worked fine till about the end of the year. 7 months of trouble with this board, one RMA on the board, and several RMA's on other components in the server to try and determine what was wrong. Kept having random shutdowns, random power offs, and random freezing problems. Every single part in the server was changed and tested with the same problem happening every time. The replacement on the board had the same problems right out of the box but it went from 24 hour random problems to about a week. This server has to have 100% uptime which is not/was not possible with this board. Finally I just gave up and bought another highly rated (non asus!) server board here on Newegg. Right out of the box the non asus board worked and hasn't stopped working, with the same parts!!! I wish the other flaming review was on here before I purchased this, I would have bought another board. Using server 2008 r2 and tried 2012 with same problems/results. The frustration this board gave us was not worth any cost savings. I should have just thrown it away the minute it had a problem and bought a new non asus board and saved months worth of headaches, testing, and wasted time.

Other Thoughts: I like asus boards for workstations but I would run far away from this server board!
