Summary: I purchased the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard from Amazon on September 11 2013 to build a computer. It ran great for four months till it had a FF boot error. Since this has happened I have spent 30 additional dollars in shipping to have ASUS fix my motherboard. I have shipped it to them four times and have been going through this for two months. I have never had such bad repairs.
Summary: i had High hopes for this board . I wanted the best of the best . What a joke the board was dead would not post to Cmoss just posted code FF . Looking at the manual their is no post code it says "reserved for future am3 " so that was no help . I tryed 2 different power supplies , 3 sets of memory . and booting out of the case with 1 stick of ram and just one vid card . No joy. I tryed to get it to update the bios but sticking a bios file on a usb stick , nothing .
Summary: Asus support and warranty are by far sub standard. If you ever have a board that is no longer manufactured but still under warranty and you send it in you will get screwed. I sent a board in for repair and was told it could not be fixed. Asus gave me a new board that was a different chip set. After receiving the replacement board, I had to buy new memory and a cpu.
Summary: I have been a faithful ASUS customer for over a decade. Needless to say, there have been issues in the past with the quality of their products. I decided to give them one more chance, and boy are they making me pay for that decision. The board was received completely dead on arrival. I spent a week on tech support and was directed to purchase an additional BIOS chip as this was the culprit.
Summary: Ich habe das Mainboard Jetzt schon zum 2. mal bestellt da das 1. Kaputt war. Auch das Austauschgerät hatte den selben Fehler. Die LED leuchtet die angibt das die Grafikkarte/VGA-Karte nicht erkannt wurde. Nach dem hinzuziehen eines IT Fachmanns stellten wir fest das ALLE PCI_Express und PCI Anschlüsse kaputt waren.
