  • Summary: pretty dam good Mother board after building my rig, i thought that one of my ram sticks got fried and just ignored it, ran on 4gb. well today, i just upgraded my ram sticks and got 2x8gb of ram and inserted the sticks into the slots that i did before and started up the computer. I looked up on how much ram it was using and realised one of the sticks weren't working and thought that s*** another defected ram.

  • Summary: I saw the 4K+ very positive reviews for this seller, and decided to give them a shot. When I received this mother board, I noticed upon inspection that it was missing three buttons (-1 star), but decided to try it out anyway. Well, the motherboard wouldn't post upon starting up my computer (-1 star) so I sent an e-mail to the seller regarding the missing buttons, and the posting issue I experienced.

Dead PCI-e Lanes

  • Summary: I bought this Motherboard in November 2011 and assembled a machine with an i5 2400, 8GB Corsair Dominator, 650W XFX PS and an XFX 6870. It performed beautifully , tried all of the features. The UEFI BIOS works well, runs cool, all of the sensors work, recognizes XMP profiles on ram. Threw games on max settings, CAD , heavy data processing, video editing , graphics work at it and the board was solidly performing, great stuff huh!

  • Summary: Well i was pleased by the motherboard but honestly i dont know what i did or if i even caused it but i can only use one stick of ram on my mobo. Probably because its fried from overheating or something. If i load ram into any other slot the computer boots but none of my peripherals and etc will work. So basically its a glowing paper weight. Only one slot for my ram works and i can only use THAT PARTICULAR slot.

  • Summary: Nice Bios & interface. Colors are kewl. Really like the board except for the darn PCIE slots they made them too close together. I was running 2 XFX HD 6870's dual fans the top card was running over 92c, if they would have moved the lower slot down an 1/8" bam what a board. I tried 3 different fan setups on it 2 fans blowing right on the 2 cards. Cougar 70.5 cfm, CM Excalibur's 102.4 cfm & 2 server 120mm 135 cfm fans nothing worked so running one card 49c while gaming.

Overall it's good, but misses the mark on OC and video card - what gamers need

  • Summary: Pro: Impressive list of spec and nifty features Very good clearance for over-sized CPU cooler Auto OC feature for OC beginners Very stable board @ 100% load 24x7 Good suite of utilities from Asus Tons of USB ports Outstanding audio, quite a standout from the rest Con: No space between the two PCI-E slots, so the first video card gets little airflow and runs hot in a dual card setup (SLI or Crossfire) Its built-in auto OC feature can only OC the i7 2600K to 4.4GHz* * can...
