5 out of 5 eggsGot more than I asked for

Pros: I've had this motherboard for several months. It is my first ROG product, and I only wish I could give this product a higher rating.
The integrated DAC and its software are much better than I would have expected. All of the overclocking utilities are simple and user friendly. The BIOS is awesome, and overclocking your CPU feels like something that is just supposed to happen in nature. It is aesthetically outstanding in every way. As long as I have had this motherboard, I have done nothing but recommend it to AMD users everywhere, as I have fallen in love with it.

Cons: I wish it came with a better badge for my case. Instead, I have a little sticker for my keyboard.

Other Thoughts: I hope all of your products are this awesome.

2 out of 5 eggsI'd like to leave a positive review but...

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, good feature set

Cons: About three days after I install the motherboard into my PC case I started having problems now my setup is a GTX 970 graphics card this motherboard NZXT 440 silenced optimized case 16 gigabytes of Dominator 1866 RAM and an Amd 8350.the problems I'm having are consistent blue screens of death when I put my graphics card in the first PCI Express slot when I move it down one I have no blue screens of death but when I go into my bios and read that as a x8 pic speed. which in turn give me noticbly worse performance in my games. I very much so want to get this board a good review but the simple fact that a PCI Express slot is almost completely unusable which means I can no longer in the future SLI. since my rma on newegg is no longer available to me hopefully you asus will see this review and contact me I will continue trying to get in contact with Asus through your website since it is still under warrenty

2 out of 5 eggs404 LAN Port not found

Pros: The overall Idea of the board is great. Plenty of everything, and the sky is the limit.

Cons: Just because the sky is the limit doesn't mean this thing never got off the ground. Out of Box dead LAN port. It says its on in the Bios but Good Luck getting anything to connect. Oh and the bios... Half the menu's cause my machine to freeze, and my last Asus board with the same Bios set up never froze.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Mobo is cosmetically beautiful. Aside from looks it performs just as well. Was not sure I would notice a difference from the ASUS board I upgraded from but I have. Even the audio is noticeably better than my last and the audio UI is ten times better and allows more flexibility. Was not overly found of the new Bios UI but its growing on me and works well.

Cons: Have been having some repeating issue with my RAID arrays that I am 95% sure is board (reason for -1 egg). I will probably end up RMAing and seeing if it cures the issues. Hoping that's all it is and not something im going to have to just live with.

1 out of 5 eggsSecond bad board

Pros: Great board when it works. Plenty of SATA ports.

Cons: Prone to a known iROG Firmware update loop. Board stops working and requires numerous power cycles to get working. First board worked for 2 months, then stopped working. Second board stopped working less than 2 weeks after installation.

2 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: NONE so far right out of the box DOA had to RMA it back theres another $20 out of the packet to ship it back

Cons: NONE

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read about your new ASUS motherboard arriving with damage. If the outside of the packaging was damaged along with the motherboard, it more than likely happened during shipping. Since it was shipped from Newegg's warehouse, they should be able to provide you with a new replacement. If you have any questions or inquiries regarding your manufactures warranty, feel free to email at customerloyalty@asus.com with reference case number # N150366307.

1 out of 5 eggsWant a headache/buy this board

Pros: learning the RMA process

Cons: *with no overclocking whatsoever!.... optimized default settings only!*

Firstboard new from newgg smoked and had to be RMA'd in the first 2 weeks; it came with unbeleaveably greasy fingerprints all over the board and blue tape stuck to the vrm heatsinks and thermal paste stuck just below the cpu socket,

The replacement board worked alright for 4 months then computer froze, and upon reboot a qcode of 10 and will not POST past the CPU initializing,

RMA'D to asus this time, received email saying my serial # was invalid, after talking to 3 different ASUS agents at 3 different times it was determined to
'Ignore that email"!?

It took 3 weeks for to receive the replacement board which they put the wrong address on the shipping label which delayed receiving it by another day,

I was upset they just sent someone elses "refurbished board" which you have no idea what kind of hardship someone else has put that board through and other components can be near death but pass their "refurbished test"

3rd board lasted 2 weeks of use, now it has the most awesome qcode of them all.... F.F. which indicates a dead BIOS... after reflashing BIOS, 24hrs removing all cables hardware, cmos batt, same FF code, all hardware works on another board and confirmed good hardware on this faulty board still displays FF code.

Now have RMA'd this 3rd board for a 4th board within 6 months of ownership, and 2x shipping with insurance....I have no trust in ASUS whatsoever and recommend everyone to forget the red and black asthetics of this board and the red lighs and buy a gigabyte ud3 or asrock fatality

*Edit*---- now onto my 5th board the 4th one they sent through RMA has a Dead Gigabit Lan adapter, yes it was enabled in BIOS
Windows could not locate the hardware to install drivers even after a clean windows install and BIOS reflash.

So I tried the Asus Premium Service advance RMA... they sent me an e-mail an entire week after they said theyd respond saying my credit card was declined and my financial services were to be blamed... and that although all my information was correct to "resubmit my information again" and would not/could not give me a reason as to what was wrong.

A quick call to Mastercard quickly proved them liars attempting to blame anyone but themselves, they didnt even try to put a holding charge on my card as financial institutions keep all records of completed and attempted charges to all accounts.

Now after delaying my RMA for another two weeks they are paying for snail mail by a courier I had to drive out of town to use. Its pretty bad when they have to lie about not having replacement boards ready for shipping due to the overly abundent amount of RMA'd formula z boards.

so seven months into owning this board I am now on my 5th board with 2 onths of practical use.

Other Thoughts: Other Thoughts: you should be scared of the fact that these boards do not come sealed in any sort of box security tape at all, no plastic wrap, no flap sealing of any kind and even worse these are shipped with no anti electrostatic discharge bag at all.

no protection from ESD and no protection from anyone having previously opening these boxes and using the board before you receive it.

dont listen to the positive reviews left by 15 year old kids who owned it for 3 days and rave about how pro it is, or that because they watched you tube that they have a max egg tech level, you will be surly dissapointed


By The Way... where's my manufacturers response with a help ticket#?....

I see they give them out like candy to those who give positive reviews with no issues to report at all...!?

why give ticket #'s to people with no problems... huh...?
