ASUS Prime Z390-A LGA 1151 (300 Series) ATX Intel Motherboard 8/20/2020 7:13:54 AM

Pros: This motherboard is easy to install and I like the LED boot sequence instead of listening to beep codes (still an option with this motherboard). There is enough space between the CPU and RAM sticks to easily install a CPU water cooler.

Cons: The I/O shield had foam padding which I had to remove so that the motherboard would line up correctly with the case stand offs to mount the board. The only other problem was manually entering the RAM voltage into the BIOS. Asus's procedure did not cause any problems, I just had to do it a few times.

Overall Review: Overall, I am satisfied with this board. It is a good compromise of price to benefits. I am not a fan of motherboards that cost as much or more than the CPU. I change Motherboards out about every 5 years unless a problem develops. No matter what the latest bells and whistles are, I have never gotten more than 5 years out of a motherboard. It is more cost effective to change out a motherboard before it actually dies. That way your other components don't die with the motherboard.

I have purchased another motherboard because 2 of the 4 RAM slots do not work I changed out RAM sticks and had the same problem with the alternate RAM sticks. The 2nd board is in lieu of dealing with tech/warranty support. I have registered both boards and setup a "my Asus" account. I have not had any response from Asus. The week of 8/17/2020, I will start calling them. I also contacted someone purported working for Asus who communicates with Newegg customers. I am not deducting eggs from Newegg because they are not the manufacturer of said motherboard.

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry to hear that your motherboard refuses to boot after testing multiple components. All ASUS products undergo intensive quality control, testing and inspections. What you've experienced was not intentional or representative of our brand. If the board arrived three days ago, I would recommend contacting your reseller for a return. If you have any general or technical questions, please email me at cl-lane@asus.com and include case #N200855796 for reference.

​Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Bent CPU Pins 8/18/2020 6:15:35 AM

Overall Review: Everything on the CPU seemed to work perfect! The RGB lights were beautiful and the motherboard held everything I needed very well. It even makes my non compatible RAM sticks compatible through a quick reset when powered on.

Unfortunately I got a faulty product. The CPU pins in the motherboard were all bent to hell, thankfully my CPU went unharmed.
