1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointed AMD and i love asus

Pros: looks great. the aesthetics are grand.all the extra features are sweet got to love that bios mouse.

Cons: i have been a long time buyer of ASUS products and was looking forward to this board because a lot of people were having easy setup with it. i have done just about everything to get these boards to work. and am very unhappy that my board came DOA with an AA error and a 66 error and i thought o that is fine they can just give me a replacement which they did. but now the new one witch i have had for only 15 days came bad crashing on my windows so i re installed windows and it seemed to still work for a couple days but even then it was still giving me the AA error and now every time i plug in my Bose speaker it turns off my keyboard and mouse. to top it all off i'm getting a VGA card error light is on now and i cant fix it. i'm very displeased ASUS and i like your hardware but this should not happen. i'm getting multiple errors and more than one person has taken a look to try to fix i would like a refund because i paid 18$ for this rma and for some reason i cant get a refund on the board. :C i was really looking forward to all the awesome features of the motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board avoid if u have win 8.1

Pros: Fast board easy to overclock. well done and has a nice layout. Just what you would expect from Asus. I have to dock it 1 egg for this reason.

Cons: The built in ether net port will not work with Windows 8.1 and Asus support has no idea when (or if I suppose) the problem will be corrected and a driver will be made. You cannot use the Windows 8 driver, or the Win 7, etc

Other Thoughts: I checked and saw this was Windows 8 compatible. Truly I did not think that would mean it was not 8.1 compatible. It seems that Asus is not on top of this issue. I cannot think of a better board for AMD Fx9690 so I will add a NIC. It am not certain about how well those will work either as the Intel ones I have found for under $650 do not have full support. I hope this will not cause me to have to return these motherboards.
Asus support is in Philippines now, and the people there mostly knew less then I did. Someone very helpful did return a call to me, but he knew nothing about if or when a driver would be made available. He told me he would call back in a few days, but I never heard from him again. Asus, what is the problem?!?

3 out of 5 eggsStrike One

Pros: Overall a great and fast board, UEFI is great to work with, coming from the old Bios screens. The Asus utilities help make this an extreme AMD board

Cons: PCIeX1_2 no loger sees my Happuage PCIe TV card, now I have put the card into another PCIe slot and it works fine, but for a $200 Nobo I expect all the slots to work, silly me. Ordered board 2 lets hope this works out better.

Other Thoughts: Waiting for board 2 to get here

5 out of 5 eggsASUS Crosshair V FZ Rocks!

Pros: Good quality board with many features in bios for overclocking. Its a stable platform to build a powerful AMD based system.

Cons: None that I have found so far.

Other Thoughts: I also own the Sabertooth Gen1 & Gen2 Motherboards, both are also very good but the Crosshair V is the unit you want if you are going to be using the FX 9590 CPU as it likes the extra 4 pin power connector on this board. The onboard sound soultion is pretty good too, I have been a fan of the top shelf Creative cards over the years but found this soultion works very good even with the Creative media player software.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing MOBO

Pros: This thing was a great replacement for my poor old ASUS Sabertooth 990 first gen. Beastly system, plays my Radeon 7970 HD like a dream and there's no game under the sun it can't play. Well done

Cons: Beware of the iROG feature as this caused some start up issues. Make sure it's turned on when you first load up. Only a minor nuisance.

Other Thoughts: There really should be a warning to first time purchasers that the iROG feature is not turned on by default. If there is I must have missed it.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer SUpport

Pros: Inexpensive, lots of features... that's about it.

Cons: The motherboard only sees half of my installed RAM, no matter what I do. I have two 8GB sticks and two 4 GB sticks of GSKill 1600, with all latencies matched. I have tried each individual stick in each individual RAM slot, and it only ever shows half the RAM. I have searched high and low for a solution to this problem. I have found a plethora of people experiencing the same issue, but no solutions. I have been through two live chat sessions with ASUS, as well as two phone calls. At the end of the second call, I was promised a call back within the hour from a "level 2 technician." The call never came.

I have tried: reseating the RAM, every conceivable configuration and combination of the RAM, checking the CPU for bent pins, memtest86, manually setting voltages and timings in the UEFI, updating the BIOS, loosening the screws on my cooler, and sacrificing a goat to satan. I suppose its worth mentioning that both types of RAM I tried are on the QVL.

Other Thoughts: This would be a great board, if only it didn't chop my memory in half.

4 out of 5 eggsBad Audio Chip

Pros: I love me some Asus more than most, but the audio chip is bad.

Cons: To be fair a $239.99 motherboard having a fault, i can only decipher as caused by the packaging. means its being shipped back.

Other Thoughts: Loved the board otherwise though, but not gonna order another one. Cheaper ones are packaged more appropriately.

4 out of 5 eggs2nd Review I just had to give it time.

Pros: Great stable overclocking, looks awesome and performs very well. Love the red and black theme of ROG.

Cons: had a couple kinks at first, ASUS support is terrible. But after that it works great.

Other Thoughts: If I was to get another motherboard and overclock it would be this one.
