5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: The part quality is uniformly excellent. Huge expansion is possible and the chipset is superb. It is without question the nicest motherboard I have ever purchased.

This won't concern many, but this motherboard is excellent for linux. I didn't have to do any driver/firmware patching to get it going; I've spent hours in the past installing dependencies in order to fix issues with R8111/R8168 ethernet adapters (yes, passing a USB drive back and forth with dozens of packages *just* to install firmware for ethernet) but debian installed with ease.

It also has a curious gel-like IO shield. I was dubious of it at first but it made assembly ridiculously easy and mates up with the motherboard and chassis very well.

Cons: None whatsoever.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST MOTHERBOARD!!!!!!!

Pros: This motherboard is the best thing i have ever bought for my PC. it is so fast and it was SUPER easy to get going with my AMD 8350. The UEFI is a thing of true beauty, everyone who likes to monitor and change settings in bios will LOVE THIS!! I recommend it to everyone who uses AMD 8350s and up. If you are going to buy the Gigabyte 990fx just save a little more money and purchase this.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: the colours are really cool even if they may not match with my other stuff i really dont care lol. other people who say this board is awful probably just had some bad luck

2 out of 5 eggsGreat when it wants to work.

Pros: Great works great I don't use to many O.C. features on the board.
All in all would say great "working board"

Cons: Okay so it just started to do this but when I shut down my computer and restart it say, The next day I will sometimes not all the time get the red CPU LED. When this happens I normally hit the reset button on my case and it will often boot up and show the bios. I've let it sit before hitting the reset but it just seems to hang up, and not boot into the bios. I'm not sure what might be causing this I'm using a FX-8320 CPU stock clock and G.Skill RAM, I know the PSU is enough given its 750w 80+ gold. However when it runs after the reset is hit it runs perfect.

Other Thoughts: Overall maybe i just got a bad board or a picky board I dunno my opinion may change in time as I trouble shoot what may cause this till then I will give it 2 eggs

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome MoBo

Pros: Beefy, Heavy, Solid This board is an animal. The size and weight makes you feel as if its a sturdy product and it is. The RAM and PCIe sockets are some of the most secure feeling I have used. Great board.

Cons: Absolutely nothing

1 out of 5 eggsBoard DOA

Pros: None so far.

Cons: Tried contacting ASUS support but web-site produced no results. Brand new board and initial start up resulted in no beep codes from BIOS nor any display on monitor. Have removed CMOS battery and reset CMOS. Standby LED is lit as well as CPU led. Have removed all 4 sticks of memory and still no beep codes. Think board is DOA. Very disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsBad System Clock - Worse Service

Pros: Runs . . . ish.

Cons: I'm amending an earlier review of this product in which I gave it 2 stars because I was still in the process of working with ASUS to RMA to get an issue resolved with my system clock.

From day 1, the system clock ran fast. At one point, all that was connected to the MOBO was a CPU and some RAM - the basic components to get into BIOS. I could leave the BIOS running or even power down the machine (still plugged in though) and the clock would gain 3 hours for 1 real hour.

I called ASUS support and they insisted on having me rebuild the OS (which was not even present during my testing). After that, I RMA'd the board and they sent me back the same board in the same condition.

Will NEVER buy ASUS products again. I've even moved from ASUS to Samsung for my Android tablet needs and have been happy with the results.

Other Thoughts: ASUS tech support is terrible. Why would I rebuild my OS when testing independent of any OS has been conclusive: BAD SYSTEM CLOCK. ASUS should have sent me a new board. Period.

1 out of 5 eggsAudio does not work

Pros: Looks freaking amazing! Seems to be very solid and well put together. Packaged very very well.

Cons: Fails to boot 3/4 times and audio has not worked since day one. Will now have to look into purchasing a sound card and dishing out extra cash just to get audio.

Other Thoughts: I do not think I will be buying from Asus again when it comes to MBs.
