Sata port seems broken out of box

Bogdan V., Newegg
10 December 2015
  • Pros: Great board, everything is efficiently placed.
  • Cons: Contacted Asus and did not receive a single response after 48 hours. From my troubleshooting, I have narrowed it down to one of the sata ports. 10/10 would not recommend.

Poor quality control

Allison J., Newegg
9 November 2015
  • Summary: Received only motherboard in box and nothing else. Be prepared to buy your own hardware because ASUS can't afford to include it with your 100$ + purchase...
  • Pros: Working motherboard
  • Cons: No hardware included

Defective Motherboard (BUYER BEWARE!)

Seatrez, Amazon
14 March 2014
  • Summary: I chose this motherboard because I was rebuilding a very old PC and this MB would be perfect for features and cost. After I installed everything and booted my system I got an error message that wanted me to "Insert a Boot Disc".

Asus customer service disappoints to no end

Michael S. Thigpen, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: First off, the motherboard is great. When it worked it was wonderful. I love how easy it is to configure, it did everything i wanted. That being said.. It worked for two months.. then the sound simply broke. All audio ports produce static only.

DOA. We'll see if the replacement is OK.

Hyjanks "Hyjanks", Amazon
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Dead on arrival. This is the first time in eighteen years of building a lot of computers with different brands of motherboards that I got a dead one. I sent the thing back to Amazon for an exchange for the exact same one, so we will see how it preforms IF the new board can post to the BIOS.

Bad board... for me

Larry T., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: FYI, if you have to RMA a board to ASUS (it was after the 30 day period for Newegg's RMA that I attempted this board's RMA), you have to pay shipping... AMD didn't require such a thing when I did the processor... imagine that!
  • Pros: Great board on paper... worked great for a week.
  • Cons: Died... RMA'd and got a dead board back. It refuses to post, and I can't figure out why. Tested PSU, RAM, even RMA'd the processor, to no avail. Disappointing actually, because I'm a long time ASUS customer (I have no less than three of their boards working around my house right now).

Works Great, when it works

Larry M., Newegg
3 February 2013
  • Summary: Customizeable board, only wish it would be consistent.
  • Pros: Fast board with plenty of USB ports. The auto overclocking feature is brain dead easy.
  • Cons: Had the board about a month and a half and it then would not post. I worked for about a week on it and it was never consistent. I had four, four gig dimms; so I removed two and it would boot for a day or two. Then it would not boot. According to the boot LEDs, it was the graphics card. Replaced t...
