Summary: I bought this motherboard from "Better Choice Online" and I immediately grew suspicious when I saw that the motherboard box was a blank white one.. Brushing that off, I continued opening the package. After examining the motherboard, I realized that it's missing a few things that the Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z in the picture has.
Summary: The product seem to arrive in good conditon and this is the only good thing. The bad thing is I payed super shipping for this item to arrive in 2-4 days and it was a gift. To find out they kept extending the delivery date and I payed super high shipping. This was a gift and I would never recommend bying a person a gift from here. After days of dissapointments the final straw was that the person I purchased the gift for had to come out of pocket for tax.
Summary: was excited to build my gaming rig. installed everything and turned system on and was able to get into bios however wasn't able to continue further. blue screen of death, everything was at stock speeds. decided to return item and got a gigabyte board which works perfect. my first time trying an asus motherboard and will be my last. gigabyte has never given me any problems therefore will just stick with what works. maybe i got a lemon but was a waste of time.
Summary: It seems the BIOS on this board is very picky about processors. I built up a complete box based on this and then found it wouldn't boot. I gave it to a friend and they had better luck using a different i5 processor. In the end I bought a Zotac ITX board which does everything I need and was a lot easier to set up than this. Advice - read the QVL before you buy.
Nach 2 Wochen Rambänke 1u.2 defekt Debug 58 und 45
13 September 2013
Summary: Das alleine ist nicht das Kriterium um abzuraten. Ambitionierte Overclocker werden Entäuscht sein wenn sie versuchen die BLCK Hürde von 103,1 stabil zu Überbieten, den genau da ist die Grenze. Zu wenig wer seinen Ram ausreitzen will. Mit 3 CPUs ! Neue i72600K eingebaut...noch vollkommen unergründet Ram Bank 1 und 2 nicht mehr zu benutzen. Per Lupe keine Pinbeschädigungen erkennbar, also daran liegt es nicht. an 2 Ram Herstellern liegt es auch nicht über Nacht.
