Not loving ASUS

Call_Them_As_I_See_Them, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: While I'm thankful for many things today, my ASUS Maximus IV Extreme -Z isn't one of them. Parts listed in this build are 2 years old, but never used. Bought them December 2011 right before Uncle Sam sent me to Korea. Just got back to USA and now finally using them for this build. This board had problems posting from the start. The internal debug LEDs read "00" which ASUS lists as a code that isn't used, so no helpful info there.

ASUS WARRANTY IS A FRAUD

Michael Ruberton, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this board. installed it and it was defective. The board failed after five minutes. I sent the board back to ASUS. They told me the board was defective and they would replace it. As of this date I am in court with them as defendants as I have not received a return board. They are pulling out all legal stops rather than replace the board as promised. Necer ever buy from this company.

It's OK

demonrn, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: I really loved this MOB when I first got it...but now after about a year or os, not so much...the overclocking that is supposed to be such a breeze, not so much. In auto mode the thing cycles forever trying to find an acceptable setting, manually it's a crap shoot. The board does not recognize memory over 1300 mhz. It has to be overclocked and again not that easy. It does run stable in default settings, but that isn't why you get this MOB...

Supposed to be a gread board. No PCIe flexibility. Dead onboard USB ports.

The R00ster, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: Cons: First and foremost, let me say that the PCIe slot placement on this board is terrible. Unless you want to run a single doule-wide GPU off of the NF200 (slot #3) or in the fourth (8x as opposed to 16x) slot, you only have three extra PCIe slots that will accommodate expansion cards (one of which will block your GPU's intake).

RoG Madness

Jonathan D. Placido "Jonny Rocket", Amazon
15 August 2012
  • Summary: It became clear to me when I booted up into the BIOS that I will NEVER use all the overclocking options this board has to offer. That being said, I can rate this up from 3 stars for my stupidity of thinking it will work with an Ivy Bridge chip out of the box. For those of you who made that mistake, there's a DRAM issue with Ivy Bridge, because of the BIOS version.

Worth The Money

Tem, Amazon
6 June 2012
  • Summary: I Bought this Motherboard for my personal gaming rig and let me say that the on board led helps a heck of a lot when diagnosing problems. To all that are considering buying this product, do not upgrade your bios unless you are experiencing problems that cause for such. I personally learned with this rig "if its not broke dont fix it". All around this is a fantastic motherboard. I've had this for nearly a month and will update my review as the months pass.

Best MB I've ever owned

  • Summary: This motherboard and its BIOS makes is so easy to overclock the CPU. Building a computer is easy, but overclocking it is another thing, and I think the more you learn about your system and how it works the better things should get! NOT!!! At least for me. I've always struggled when approching overclocking of about 15% or more, but not any more. With the Maximus IV Extreme Z I'm running at 50% and stable.
