5 out of 5 eggsmade for raw power

Pros: This board has taken my FX9370 with a Corsair TX 650 supply and Hyper 212EVO with push-pull aftermarket fans and 8 gb of Crucial 1866 XT Sport RAM (overclocked to 1931)-to 4.88ghz. Hyper Transport running at 2700, NB 2277 (stock multipliers.) My normal startup overclock is set to 4.5 ghz. I can then shift to 4.88 within the OS using Turbo EVO. Surely this is all right at the edge of the CPU cooler's capacity, but on the other hand the Hyper212's collateral breeze plus my Antec 305's strategically placed fans keep the motherboard temps surprisingly cool. Am getting consistent Cinebench Demo CPU score of 768

Cons: This board had given me fits trying for full Cool and Quiet operation, Turbo or no, but once I tried most of the Smart Digi Key VRM management suggestions and just went with a straight overclock, my troubles have disappeared. The Key seemed to be CPU LLC set to Ultra Hi. CPU volts set to 1.368, NB volts to 1.150, DRAM volts set to a mere 1.370v. Perhaps a Con for some, but, in the end not really a deal breaker for me. I may not have had the same Cool and Quiet problems using, say an FX 6350...

Other Thoughts: I had RMA'ed this board, sent it in, and ASUS Service sent it right back to me 'repaired' with no explanation. They may 've replaced the bios chip, otherwise there was no evidence of any repair. This was originally bought as an Open Box. No doubt this board tested fine for them and may 've even been superior at overclocking. My thought is that I would have gotten to the advantages of this board much sooner had I employed LLC Ultra Hi sooner.
Note: The CPU OPT. fan header would seem to be under the same speed control as the CPU fan header. If you are looking to drive a water pump with a fixed 12v, you may want to pick a different header!

1 out of 5 eggsRegret buying this motherboard

Pros: None that I can see. This board ruined two processors and all Asus would do is "repair" it. I sent all items back to ASUS expecting the board to be replaced but they repaired it and did not return, the cables, manual or other items that came with the board. Asus - This is the last time I buy your products.

Cons: The motherboard destroyed the CPU and a red led indicated that the CPU had failed. At least that part worked. AMD replaced one CPU which was destroyed within an hour of being installed in the motherboard. I received a third CPU from New Egg, but I don't have confidence in installing it in a repaired motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I'll be buying from a vendor with a more solid return policy

5 out of 5 eggsProbably the best motherboard I've ever owned!

Pros: Supports 8-core FX CPUs.
Supports DDR3-1866 RAM without overclocking.
USB 3.0 ports AND header for front ports.
Sata 6Gb/s drive ports.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: FINALLY getting around to reviewing this board.
I picked it up to complete my FX-8350 build. I had initially tried to use a 970-based mobo, which was an utter fail.
It POSTed the first time I tried it. It took a little bit on finagling to get the BIOS to recognize my G.Skill DDR3-1866 RAM and hold the settings, but now it boots up perfectly every time.
The system runs cool and stable, absolutely no problems or even an odd quirk. I have had friends recommend Asus boards for years, very glad I finally took the plunge. Asus is my top choice for a premium board purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGood chocie

Pros: Great motherboard with nice features, was perfect for my mid-grade pc build

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: I wasn't able to screw in the top-right corner, for some reason (I forget exactly why), but with the other 8 screws in it didn't mess anything up. I'd recommend this motherboard to anyone.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks great but...

Pros: -Has all the USB ports you could ever want
-Plenty of extra slots for future upgrades

Cons: None that were immediately apparent

Other Thoughts: Worked great for a little over a year, then I started having problems with the optical audio, my computer would say it is playing sound with the little sound window but no sound was actually coming through my headset. I concluded that it is not in fact the headset because I swapped them out and still had the same problem. A reboot fixes the problem for a short while until it decides to stop. Communication programs such as Skype and Teamspeak started to freeze up randomly aswell. Not sure if my motherboard just decided to go bad but I'm about to replace it.

1 out of 5 eggsBoard won't work

Pros: Nicely laid out board, good heat sinks on North/South bridge chips and easy to install CPU slot. Flashback bios feature is a great plus.

Cons: set up build in mid tower case, tried to boot but got red CPU LED light on first boot attempt and no boot screen or signal from computer to monitor. Changed video card, same problem, changed ram, same problem. reseated CPU, new silver heat compound, same problem. Have been in contact with Asus personnel, and decided to flash bios using their Flashback system, which worked very well with standby power only. tried to boot up and same problem as before, RED CPU LED lights, no signal to monitor, and no boot screen as a result.

4 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: Does anything and everything I want it to, also supports sli

Cons: after 6 months of use, the onboard sound has died, contacted Asus and they want me to RMA it. After reading several reviews about their RMA's I am not sure I want to take that risk. It would be easier to buy a sound card and be done with the issue

Other Thoughts: overall I like the board it does what I need, I am disappointed that the sound would die after such a short time.

3 out of 5 eggsFailed after six months

Pros: Works Well with the FX 8350 CPU, Very fast

Cons: Board Failed after 6 months. When initially installed in my system there were several time when the computer did not boot correctly. The gpu fan ran fast and made a lot of noise. I could shut down and restart and the system booted correctly. After 6 months the screen went blank and started to reboot then failed. Attempts to restart failed. Again the GPU fan ran fast.

Other Thoughts: I've been building computers since the early 1990s and this is the first mb that has failed. I've used Asus products many times and have always thought highly of their product. I'll send this board back for repair or replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Very nice features. Love the BIOS. very easy to use. Overclocks my AMD FX -4300 from 3.8 GHz to 4.1 Ghz with just the click of a button. Even takes RAM that isnt in the compatibility list, although it is under-clocked from 1600 to 1333

Cons: seems to slow my memory down slightly but the memory isnt on the compatibility list so that may be the problem.

5 out of 5 eggsyes pls

Pros: large array of overclocking settings
quick boot time

Cons: pcie @ 8x, 8x (not a huge downside)
SLI 2x pcie slot placement too low.
I only have 2 gtx 760's and an asus xonar dx sound card plugged in and it barely fit right at the bottom, nearly touching my PSU.

Other Thoughts: I ended up buying with this board after testing the gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 rev 4 and having a few very annoying issues including POST loops, random freezes, LAN disconnects, poor oc-ability, wake from usb input not working consistently. I hated that gigabyte board and im glad I gave this asus board a chance, worth every penny.
