5 out of 5 eggsGreat MotherBoard

Pros: Lots of tweaks in the bios and extra CPU and VGA power plugs on the board! Has more OC features than most people will ever use! colorful has LEDS Buttons to go straight to bios and other things that are useful.

Cons: Non Really a little pricey still it should be about $25.00 lower!
ASUS Utilities are a little iffy at best !
The Intel lan seems a little slow and I am picking up a new router and will see if this helps

Other Thoughts: Except for the provided software a little to much and if all is installed it may or may not conflict with other stuff you have installed. Overall I am pleased with this current setup.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly briefly worked

Pros: It looks nice.

Cons: It has only worked briefly for me. After two weeks problems started where the board would give me random errors on 3D games. Took it to get a diagnostic and it was determined a faulty MoBo. I RMA'd it and got a Sabertooth 990FX while waiting for my RMA. Everything worked beautifully and the PC was running the entire time the RMA was out. I got the new board and it was also a brick. RMA'd it again and got another brick. I waited on hold yesterday for 2 hours, and after all that, they assured me a supervisor would be contacting me by the end of the day. Never happened. Currently on hold now, and it's at 2 hours and counting. I'm so shocked by such terrible quality in such a high end board.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on this.

1 out of 5 eggsFF CODE! BAD MOTHERBOARD

Pros: I own two of these. The first one works well.

Cons: I was building a second computer with one and have heard rumors of the FF code. The board didn't even boot up and a FF code was reading. No screen signal either. I have tried their technical support FAQ page and even connected the other board to it and it works fine. The second board just is a dud and ASUS Support is extremely hard to get a hold of. Confusing call times and their website sucks at getting a phone number to talk to someone.

1 out of 5 eggsBAD QUALITY BOARD !!

Pros: Looks nice!

Cons: This is my second board that has not worked, and now I have to send to Asus to get it repaired. The first would not fire up, and the second board fired up but no display and motherboard code FF comes up. I tried two different Nivida Cards 570 gtx and 780 gtx, plus two different power supplies. I'm using a AMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ witrh no luck!!!

Other Thoughts: I bought plenty of ROG boards and this one has been a nightmare!!

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Gabeszone,

I am sorry to hear that you had a problem with a second board as well sir. Did you happen to RMA it already? If not, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you with setting up an RMA so that I may look into your case further. Please include your reference number within the subject line. In addition, please provide me with what troubleshooting steps you have tried, as well as the rest of the systems hardware configuration. Thank you!Cs# N141006950

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate - ASUS officially scamming

Pros: No idea, thing blew out instantly.

Cons: No idea, thing blew out instantly.

Other Thoughts: Proper standoff usage, Good connections, PSU confirmed good, Proper anti-static measures taken.

First power up, chipset pops and pours smoke.

I think I can see damage there, but it could just be me seeing what I want to see.

Checked back of board for damage to make sure it didn't somehow magically short even with the standoffs and everything is clean.

Spent all disposable income for 2 years on this PC build.

Have an RMA in, but after doing research online I've become terrified that newegg is going to try and deny the return.

Will be furious if 3000+ dollars is wasted b/c I was sold a bad motherboard.

UPDATE - Sent board in. ASUS is denying warranty b/c of "user caused CPU pin damage"

I sent it in b/c the CHIPSET WAS SMOKING.... and they claim CPU pin damage.

Congrats newegg, you're about to get 2700 dollars of returns..

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
