MB Driver Problem or Windows Problem? 9/8/2020 8:50:34 PM

Pros: Great Features and Layout Dual M.2 NVME

Cons: Ethernet port inactive after a restart (Warm Boot) works fine after a Cold Boot updating BIOS made no difference.

Overall Review: Have purchased four of these over the past couple of months the first one had the same problem, second one did not have the problem, third one did not have that problem but died after two hours of running and took the CPU with it. The fourth one a replacement for the third has the same issue with the Ethernet port as the first one did. Originially thought it may have been a Windows 10 problem, but I am not so sure. I'd be interested in knowing the solution to this particular problem.

Does not like older OEM windows. 8/24/2020 1:28:36 PM

Pros: Fits great in my case as well as fits my cooler without a hassle.

Cons: Trying to boot this thing with an older windows was a struggle. It wouldn't install any lan card drivers even from the disk.

Use appropriate year Windows and it was a dream and up in 10 minutes.

Overall Review: Great motherboard!

Great motherboard for the price. 8/4/2020 3:41:59 PM

Pros: -Integrated IO shield
-Multiple m.2 ports
-Awesome looking motherboard
-Bios flash back button
-Diagnostic LEDs

Cons: -Installing a big air cooler is a real hassle on this motherboard.

Overall Review: RGB lighting looks great, one of the slots for an m.2 SSD is hidden by the aluminum decoration on the motherboard. Overall a really good motherboard. Works just the way it's supposed too. I kinda wish there were additional USB ports but hey.. can't have everything for this price.

Installing a big air cooler is a real hassle on this motherboard.... I installed one temporarly because I am waiting on my CPU block to finish my waterloop. The RGB lighted section of the motherboard is stupidly massive along with the top heatsink and makes it nearly impossible to install an air cooler. Not all that much of a con for me as I'll be watercooling but it might be for some of you.

Great budget level board 6/25/2020 9:37:52 AM

Pros: Has a ton of features for a budget level z490 board and is solid and stable. The bios is fairly typical for Asus, if you’re familiar with it should be easy to navigate. Overclocks great, set my 10700k to a modest 4.5ghz, I’m on custom water loop, but didn’t feel the need to go higher even though i could probably get to 5.0ghz it’s plenty fast where I have it set. Set my memory to 2933mhz and adjusted the voltage haven’t had any issues. Great upgrade coming from a gigabyte z170 and 6600k.

Cons: Thought my board was defective at first as I was getting a lot of splash screen freezes upon reatarts, however it was my own fault for leaving fast boot enabled. Had to do the same with my previous z170 board as well not sure why I had forgot about it. As soon as I disabled it I haven’t had a freeze up since. It boots plenty fast without fast boot enabled anyway. My only actual con to this board is the clear cmos isn’t a button on the board or back IO shield, it has the old school short the 2 pins.

Overall Review: Great board and was a huge upgrade for me coming from z170 and 6600k to this board and 10700k. If you are upgrading from a z370 might not be too noticeable of an upgrade. Board is very stable and the rgb is subtle and looks good.
