Solid Motherboard, but is lacking for the price. 4/24/2019 8:04:41 PM

Pros: -Heavy. Very solid construction. Didn't feel flimsy like other boards I've handled in the past.
-Lots of features in the BIOS for overclocking to your heart's content
-The RGB LED lighting is one of the coolest features I've ever had on a board.
-Installation was a snap. The DIMM2 card for mounting two of the three supported M.2 drives as dead simple. I installed a Samsung 970 Pro 512GB for OS and a Samsung 970 Evo 2TB for Games. Booted to Windows on a USB 3.0 flash drive and Windows detected and installed to the 512GB without issue.
-Windows install took ~4 minutes! Of course, this install speed will vary based on installation media and destination drive.
-Stable. No overclocking attempted, but without any tweaking to the BIOS, other selecting the boot order of my devices and configuring my RAM, I didn't need to do anything in BIOS to actually get Windows installed. This was, by far, one of the easiest Windows installations I've ever had.

Cons: -Only one USB 2.0 header. I know USB 3.x is the future, but I have several USB 2.0 device which plug into the headers on the motherboard. I had to use a USB 2.0 expansion card to connect my three devices.
-No motherboard mounting screws. For $540, you would think ASUS could include the normal screws required for attaching the board to the case. The instructions clearly state you need a bag of screws. Thankfully, I've amassed computer screws over the years and this wasn't a problem, but if someone doesn't have the mounting screws already for a new build, you're out of luck.
-Latest Aura software will NOT detect my motherboard and allow me to tweak the RGB lighting. I had to manually download and install the oldest available version to get it to work. If I try to upgrade to the latest version, I encounter a fatal error and installation fails.
-Boot times. Getting through POST takes about 45 seconds. My old ASUS Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 booted in easily 1/3 time from a cold boot to Windows login. Once I make it through POST, Windows takes <5 seconds to boot.

Overall Review: Overall, solid board, runs great and has been stable.

Love it 1/18/2019 5:16:33 PM

Pros: to many to list

Cons: the live dash software is very buggy (For little LCD display on the mother board). Aura software could be better.
I really like the LCD on the MB, great innovation to see error codes and temps! Good job ROG!

Overall Review: Great MB

Pros: Nice looking board with on board wifi and other useful stuff as well

Cons: I have had issue since day one with the board running slow in games with the 2950x processor and even when shutting half cores off it still had frame rates like 31 fps in world of warcraft.

A month or so after having the board it gave me a BSOD and on reboot it just gets stuck in an endless loop while checking the cpu.

Newegg issued a refund since they think the board is toast already

ASUS is batting 1000 12/7/2018 5:22:21 PM

Pros: It's like a Ryzen 7 with a 4000 pin socket and twice the I/O of a Crosshair Hero. WiGi not WiFi, Quad channel not dual, 3 M.2 sockets, 16x 8x 16x 8x PCIe lanes, U.2, 10 GB lan card, Top end 8 phase VRM and 3 phase SOC, Max 128GB of Ram, Amazing Audio . I'm on my third month with a ZENITH and I couldn't be happier.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: I recommend ASUS
I always buy ASUS

Every option you need 11/24/2018 7:58:50 AM

Pros: 3 M.2 slots, USB 3.1 with C headers, lots of PCI lanes no matter the CPU, RGB everywhere, fan headers, senors, galore. Board has all the bells and whistles.

Cons: Price? None really, it's been working fine.

Overall Review: Lots of options, with the latest BIOS it's been very stable.

Board has been a problem Since day one. Today it crashed and wont power up. 11/18/2018 7:46:58 PM

Stability has been a problem since day one.

What a piece of garbage 10/30/2018 1:20:42 PM

Pros: There are no pro's

Cons: Cons are - everything about it and the RMA replacement that came to replace it. Customer support was holding the party line and would only offer exchanges which are repairs form other poor souls who bought this poorly made and poorly designed motherboard. Unless you want a major headache then do not buy this MB. With a suitable cooler you cannot access one of the PCI slots unless you have a half length or smaller card. The MB would not boot, talked to customer support - sent RMA replacement. This one was dirty, scratched, had bent wireless aerial connectors and worst of all a bent pin in the socket. There is no way this past a proper test and if I had plugged my $1800 processor in to it then probably goodbye processor . Oh and some screws were stripped. So customer support offered another RMA but this time to repair my original. Why should I only get either an RMA repaired board or have to get mine repaired? So whilst the customer support people seemed nice, ASUS needs to get their act together and stand by their product.
