Defective and not packaged with everything

Kevin I., Newegg
29 June 2014
  • Pros: The board ran fine. Installing things was a breeze.
  • Cons: The board came defective, and it came to my house NEW without a static bag wrapped around it. It was bent slightly in the corner which gave me serious problems with my keyboard usb causing me to return it.

Works Well

Mark L., Newegg
13 June 2014
  • Summary: Like I said very happy for my business application.
  • Pros: Bought 2 for business builds. Everything went smooth with install and all expectations were met. Very good fit for our needs.
  • Cons: Took a little finagling with the IO shield. The grounding tabs can directly enter the IO sockets if you are not careful. Make sure you got that right before power up.

Great features for the price

Brian A., Newegg
15 May 2014
  • Summary: Color.. which looks better after it's installed.
  • Pros: Usually when I slim down a search for parts, ASUS is the only brand left, in this case it was 6 ASUS ATX boards. This board was chosen for its availability of the latest USB and SATA ports, expandability for a second video card, and the standards that every board should meet: enough PCI/PCIe port...
  • Cons: Only problem I've found so far is that the EPU/ESD heatsink and RAM slots are too close to the CPU, the best/quiet CPU fans on Newegg interfere with these parts. Make sure you choose RAM with a short profile or a heatsink that will stick well-above your RAM. I suggest the Zalman CNPS2X if you wan...

great - friendly - usable - adept

greg f., Newegg
28 April 2014
  • Summary: For my purposes the six SATA ports area major plus :)
  • Pros: This is a nice intuitive motherboard that doesn't need any special attention (e.g. bios update) to function properly. Inexpensive, yet adequately powerful. This was smooth and straightforward to install and configure compared with the last motherboard i bought (a horrid MSI AMD motherboard with l...

Junk

Christopher K., Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: cheaper to get a rosewill sound card than to disassemble the machine and RMA the motherboard. Probably going to have to purchase a video card for the other one. Just disappointing.
  • Pros: Asus
  • Cons: ordered four of these for a small network build. One has DOA onboard sound and another shuts off the integrated graphics at will. I am all about Asus, but these things are garbage.

Good, basic motherboard.

M. Durand, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: Overall I'm satisfied with this motherboard. Everything works fine. But a few issues: * Max memory speed of DDR3 1600. Don't trust the QVL list which lists memory up to DDR3 3000. * Only 2 chasis fan controllers * No SLI support * Could not get PCIe 1x card to detect in second PCIe 16x slot.

  • Summary: No problems whatsoever, bios is amazing, hasn't given me any problems. From what I can tell after about 6 months of ownership its a pretty stable MB.
