Had it for a couple years

Brandon W., Newegg
7 July 2013
  • Summary: I actually came on to find a replacement board, and noticed the other comments. I have tried downloading the bios updates and changing settings in device manager. This has really turned me off to Asus Products, especially now that I see there are so many others with this issue and no fix has been...
  • Pros: Does Everything! Plenty of ports, Does what I needed it to do. Best Board on the market when I bought it.
  • Cons: Constant Issue with USB Ports. Most of them Don't work, 2 on the back and the 2 on the front of my case do. Which is great because I have 4 peripherals (mouse, Keyboard, Headset, and Foot pedal) plugged in at all times. Trouble is that I have to unplug something to use a flash drive, or my printe...

Ehh...

Juan H., Newegg
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Would have been good board if it didn't have USB problems
  • Pros: Exactly what I wanted, the bios is best bios utility I have come across on a motherboard yet.
  • Cons: USB ports shut occasionally, you have to unplug power cord and wait 10 seconds for power drain then reboot and they work again. (usually happens once a week or so) The sata plugs are facing sideways on board. In most cases probably wouldn't have been a big deal. if you are purchasing this board m...

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.

  • Pros: I have had this motherboard for well over two years now and I haven't had any issues with it. I have not tried to overclock with it yet just because, I have no need to overclock yet but it is still going perfectly strong, still doesn't have a spec of dust on it. Black ops 2, Battlefield 3, Starcr...

Crashs, USB ports not working

Scott R., Newegg
8 March 2013
  • Pros: When it runs it runs well. Like the OC software...
  • Cons: I have had many times where it will crash during boot, also have had many issues where it will lock up after the OS is loaded. Also, had problems with USB ports not working, having to switch my mouse and keyboard to others to get them to work - seems to be random. Also had situations where the po...

Bad

Aleshia K., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Pros: It was good when it work.
  • Cons: The board began to lose it's USB 3.0 and immediately started to messed up. Then the PCI-E lanes went full ret'rd and gave out. I switch to all 4 lanes to no avail! This is definitely not top of the line at all. I pay the premium price to get low standard card. POST LED went brain dead as well. No...

Amazing.. when it works.

Caleb S., Newegg
22 January 2013
  • Summary: I highly recommend to not buy this product. The customer service was terrible and not worth the risk. Since I have had mine for probably around 9 months now I doubt there is anything besides buy another brands board once these USB slots go out for good. I knew I should of gone EVGA.
  • Pros: Overall great specs.
  • Cons: The USBs are terrible.. Two different boards and neither of them had working USBs. Both times the USBs kept going off for weeks at a time randomly then starts to work again. Slightly after that another couple of slots stop working. -2 eggs for the terrible support and quality. Something this expe...
