Great looking board but Bluetooth connectivity range is awful. 8/21/2020 8:18:25 AM

Pros: The board looks great and works great for the most part. Cooling is sufficient. Installed with no problems at all.

Cons: The Bluetooth connection range is about 1 ft.

Overall Review: My biggest problem with this board is the Bluetooth connection range. I pair my Xbox wireless controller via Bluetooth and if I am literally more than 1 foot away I lose connection. Other than that this board is solid, it has a good amount of features and just looks good. I have it paired with a 10700k and a Rog Strix 2070 Super.

DOA, ASUS what is going on??? 8/12/2020 10:05:37 AM

Pros: Stylish

Cons: dead, dead, dead. Well, one light came on if thats of any hope!

Overall Review: I really don't know whats going on with this particular MOBO. After reading a lot of reviews complaining about receiving this particular model dead on arrival, I decided to still buy it. I have had good experiences with ASUS in the past. Well, my board was defective, had dust on it(even though it was sealed), so I imagine it must have been a return or something. My first disappointing experience with ASUS Motherboards. So, I guess, stay away from this particular model, hopefully, it is not a common problem with other models.

ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming - EDIT 8/10/2020 8:37:32 AM

Pros: Solid Board. BIOS was easy to 'flash' and navigate. VRM Cooling appears to be excellent, even without the VRM fan running.

Cons: VRM Fan header is INOP. BIOS does not detect connected fan. Attached fan to CHA_FAN1 header for it to function. To be fair, multi-hour AIDA64 stress-tests on the i7-10700K @ 5.0 GHz produced only moderate VRM temps, so the fan may not have kicked-on, even if it had been detected. The system is Very Stable.

Overall Review: Performance, SSD Latency, & LAN Adapter issues alluded to in previous review were traced to Intel driver issues and Windows Update issue respectively. This board does everything I've asked of it, and more! I would highly recommend the ROG Strix Z490-E - even with the inoperative VRM Fan header.

Great Board 8/7/2020 1:17:16 PM

Pros: -Ethernet not broken a previous reviews have mentioned. Thry must have fixed it.
-Nice board with Overclocking functionality
-Good bang for the buck
-Board is paired with an i7-10700k an is working flawlessly.

Cons: -none at this time.

Overall Review: -Would recommend this product as long as the Ethernet port continues to work.
-For the price of the board and the features you get, you can't go wrong. I have always been an ASUS board fan and this board does not disapoint.

Lots of connectivity, not friendly with NZXT AIO pump. 8/7/2020 10:43:25 AM

Pros: - lots of header connection for the chassis fans and rgb header.
- optional VRM fan you can install
- supports wifi 6
- rgb lighting. ahem

Cons: - the screw for the VRM fans holder were too tight so I end up not installing the VRM fan that was included in the package.
- the memory slots were closely placed close to the cpu. If you want to install an AIO pump like an NZXT AIO pump, you can't use the first bracket. If you want to use all ram slots and have NZXT pump, you better rotate your aio pump clockwise.

Overall Review: Would recommend this motherboard if you want good connectivity and overclocking performance.

Great Product w/ Stupid Issue 8/4/2020 10:13:00 PM

Pros: Great Layout and Design
Heat Sync and Other Cooling Features are great
WiFi works very well
BIOS and ASUS software works well

Cons: Only Con - The set screw screw-head for the MOS fan bracket stripped almost immediately! Unable to install MOS fan.

Overall Review: The layout of the board is great. It’s feature rich and provides ample connectivity options. Further, the built in cooling feature set is terrific. i7 10700k stays cool. Unfortunately, while it was my intention to over lock the system, the MOS bracket set screw screw-head stripped almost immediately. It was set so tight that the metal literally flaked off the screw head before it would loosen. After it stripped, no amount of effort with additional tools could loosen it and eventually I had to give up on the MOS fan. Not something I was willing to RMA and be without a computer for several weeks.

PS - Board looks really great with a matching ASUS watercooling system.

If the MOS fan screw wasn’t a problem, this would be a 5 star review!

I will forward your feedback to the Product team for review. If you do decide to RMA the board in the future, please reach out to me at and include case #N200823493 in your email for reference. I'd be happy to help create one for you.

Excellent mid range gaming motherboard. 7/24/2020 10:39:31 AM

Pros: Excellent overall layout of the board and connectivity options for M.2 storage in addition to Sata SSDs, ARGB and PCIE options.
As always, excellent Asus Bios for overclocking, your CPU, GPU and memory.
Handles my power hungry 10900K with ease with the added 4 pin CPU power in addition to the 8 pin.
ARGB onboard lighting looks great.

Cons: My only complaint thus far is the board hangs on the VGA with of course the white light showing during POST after a complete shutdown of your PC at the end of the day. It does not do this during restart or when waking from sleep. The fix is easy but annoying as heck. I flip the power switch on my PSU for a few seconds and diffuse the power from my machine by clicking the power button a few times. Flip the power switch back on to the PSU and press the power button. It boots right up. My EVGA 2080 Super is seated properly with plenty of power from my EVGA 850 power supply so I am not sure what is causing this. I have flashed the Bios to the newest release. The problem is still there. Hopefully this will be resolved in a future Bios release.

Overall Review: I would recommend this board to anyone upgrading Mobos. Asus produces quality boards.

I would buy it again.

Dear Mazin,

It is unfortunate that your motherboard was dead on arrival. Please try taking the motherboard out your computer case and put it on a non-static test bench and put in the essentials which are : one stick of RAM, CPU, PSU, and a GPU and see if it posts. Let me know if this helps. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me at I'm here to assist our customers with our products and dedicated in bringing a resolution to all issues that they may come across. Your case for reference is #N200751790
