Summary: It's expensive, I get it. But you get what you pay for. Honestly, this is my third ASUS ROG board. This is the only board I buy. It's worth it.
Pros: - Amazing gaming motherboard - Amazing BIOS - Recognizes up to 32gb of 2400 RAM. - Able to operate even without a case if you like, thanks to buttons on board - Plenty of options for graphics cards, expansion cards, SLI, etc.
Cons: - Expensive. - Only PCI Express 2.0 (Though the difference between 2.0 and 3.0 performance is negligible) - Requires electricity?
Pros: I built a computer around this mobo early 2013. Build included a FX 8150 and ASUS HD 7870, upgraded to the R9 390 last week. It has decimated everything I've thrown at it. Handles every piece of hardware that I've attached to it flawlessly. I even dropped my computer from shoulder height onto cem...
Cons: Every once in a while I'll get some random power related error on startup but I'm quite sure that has to do with me unplugging my power strip from the wall.
Pros: Good board. I'm not an overclocker but I buy overclocking components for the abuse they can take. Love this board, first UEFI BIOS board I've owned. Good for gamers!
Cons: My only complaint is that right out the box this board overclocks the CPU, which has caused my CPU to overheat and just shut off, which I just figured out two days ago. So if you're like me and don't overclock you'll need to change settings once installed in BIOS. Also the BIOS hangs in Voltage M...
Pros: This was purchased as an upgrade to a board that was 7 years old. I have to say that I really didn't know what I was missing. Well actually I did know I was missing some speed, some memory capacity, and a bios that actually made configuring and overclocking simple. I went from a 2Ghz processor to...
Summary: Have purchased again after the first one was ruined
Pros: Definitely fast and most importantly reliable, mine ran overclocked 24/7 for about 3 or more years and probably still would be if I hadn't cooled it to the point of condensation cpu got up to about 4.8ghz at 280-333 fsb, ram did about 1766
Cons: Ram doesn't go as fast as the advertised 2133
Summary: i have been building DIY PC for most of my life and most of the part bought online especially motherboard that i never encounter DOA or other issue when i received the item.i still got my Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 that is still working hell fine that i bought online recently and been using for almost...
Pros: Board come in Red
Cons: Less Rigid Heatsink than Sabertooth Sata Port for Asmedia is not special feauters like on Sabertooth
Summary: Working great so far with this new build I made for my bro-in-law. ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AMD FX-8370 EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 G. Skill Sniper Series 16 GB DDR3 1866 (4x 4GB) Samsung 850 EVO 250GB WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM
Pros: USB 3.0 everywhere. This board was a little difficult to get into my Corsair SPEC-03 case, but once it was on there were no problems. MY GPU covers the top of the SATA connections so you have to wiggle them in carefully because of the space. Had an issue with Corsair RAM, but then I switched to G...
Cons: More up to date QVL for RAM. The 8-Pin power strip at the top of the board makes it real tight for top case fans (Corsair SPEC-03), but it works.
