Summary: Product worked as expected. Daughter was delighted. Did lots of research & comparing before purchase. Read lots of review, both good and bad. Great functionality and technology for the price. Read some complaints in other reviews. They seem to be based on expectations.
Summary: The board itself has a really nice look and lots of overclocking features however I did run into a few problems with it. With customization and all those options for the overclocking, there are also a lot of drivers that must be installed properly as well. For me it was the usb ports on the back, which apparently many people experienced as well.
Summary: Awesome board but if you're going to stick to an i5-2500K then don't go beyond BIOS 2302. This board easily overclocks my i5-2500K to 4.6ghz offset (-.030) and even 4.8ghz! the only reason I don't stay at 4.8ghz and even attempt higher clock speeds is because I only have an H50 cooler. 4.8ghz is stable with the H50 but the temps at full load are at 85c-90c. I can't wait till I upgrade my cooling system! Definitely Recommend this product.
Summary: I've had the Maximus IV Extreme for a little over a year now and I'm very pleased with it does everything I need it to do and is great for gaming and overclocking I had a scare recently when loading in a bios update it didn't read correctly and thankfully when there is a corrupt or invalid bios present it doesn't just fizzle and die it goes into bios update screen so you can select a bios to use (From USB, HDD, etc) and was able to reload the bios and get it working with...
Summary: Looks good, sounds good, but the products RAM slots are defective right out of the box and there are numerous blogs n reviews with the same issue along with other issues like bent pins. The product is made in China so i'm thinking maybe thats why its defective. I have contacted Asus for support to be told to buy new RAM which I did 3 times so now i'm out more money and all 3 RAM companies I called all told me and email confirmed, there products work with the board.
Summary: Mainboard excellent, easy to administer, both for amateurs and advanced users in overclocking, safe and reliable under high load, large internal and external connectivity, low noise and excellent Self-cooling. I recommend it, very good cost-benefit ratio.
Summary: Well A. Madrigal said it best so no point in adding my 2 cents My setup (Listmania): [...] Software makes it really easy, I just clicked auto mode and it automatically OCed my PC. Great thing is if anything is astray you can reset back to factory settings. Board looks nice too I like all the ROG black and red stuff. Keep in mind this is a XL-ATX board, your going to have to make sure your PC case can fit it!
