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...

ASUS treats there customers poorly

John B., Newegg
15 April 2012
  • Summary: Specs: HAF 942 i7-2700k 120GB Corsiar SSD Corsair H100 liquid cooler EVGA Superclocked GTX 680 ASUS DVD-RW Drive Rosewill Lightning 1000W PSU
  • Pros: I'm sure the board works great when if you can actually get a machine going with it.
  • Cons: I had a processor socket pin that was missing, and I've read in some of ASUS's forums where others reported the same problem with this mother board, but ASUS has been unwilling to help me in any way besides having me send in the board and spend another $150 dollars to replace the socket. Oh joy! ...

  • Summary: I guess I can try a BIOS update and see if that helps but really for a 350 dollar Mobo I should be able to install XP without any headaches right out of the box. Really disappointed in Asus. I believe they sacrificed compatibility and useability with overclocking settings on this one.
  • Pros: 4 x16 PCIe slots that run at x16 or dual x8 or x8, x16, x16. A lot of overclocking possibilities.
  • Cons: Horrible BIOS and Hardware compatibility. I build machines for traders that use up to 12 screens so I like the machines to have fast PCIe speeds. I usually use a Gigabyte with around the same specs but Newegg was out so I gave this Mobo a try. I should of got the Gigabyte board from elsewhere. Do...

I expected much better from Asus

Anonymous, Newegg
16 January 2012
  • Summary: I am now on my 3rd Maximus Exteme-z board. The first was DOA and the 2nd had a bad PCI-E slot. After about 2 months of use the USB 3.0 ports started to drop out and the Lucid Virtu would fail to load.
  • Pros: *Great for overclocking *Able to run 3 way sli/crossfire *Clean look with attractive red and black color scheme (for those that care about that sort of thing)
  • Cons: *High rate of failure and unreliability

Ein brauchbares Produkt mit zerspartem Zubehör

Moriturus, Amazon
8 September 2011
  • Summary: Hallo Interessenten! Die Lieferung kam schnell, die Enttäuschung auch. Ich wollte das beigelegte sogenannten "3.5 Front Panel with 2 USB 3.0/2.0 ports" einbauen, aber die Kabel waren viel zu kurz. Vielleicht für ein Mini-ATX, nicht aber für ein normales ATX-Gehäuse.
