Summary: I believe this is a good board but the support for this board provided by ASUS is beyond absurd. Not to mention about over 2 hours of wait time on call. Some kids in Indiana answering the call have no idea about the product. They were trying to read off the manual without having a slightest idea what I am asking. I doubt they've ever seen the product they support. The horrible unforgettable experience after almost 2 hours of hold time.
Summary: I purchased this board based off Amazons chip and motherboard set and when I got it, I was unable to do anything until today. When I read the material, I found out it was the wrong board for the chip purchased. The second thing I found out was it had bent pins on the surface where the chip goes. I took everything down to a local computer shop and they told me the board was no good since the pins were bent.
Summary: This Asus ROG Matrix HD Platinum is a companion for the Maximus V Extreme mother board I have in my super computer. Setting it up has been an adventure, but this gives me 6 monitors and runs quietly and very fast. With the Msata card holding the operating system, it will boot in less than a minute using Windows 8. The difficulties were mostly me, not knowing all there is about gaming components.
mPCIe failed in 3 months , unreasonable and rude customer support.

Summary: Ill keep it brief as its been quite dissapointing already. The bluetooth part of the card failed first, the bluetooth adapter wont start manully from the device manager. Then on subsequent reboots the pc becomes quite slow to boot up. Finally the pc wont boot at all or continue to boot very very slow with motherboard showing error 98 or 99. After about 4 attempts to boot the MB didnt boot at all.
Summary: AWESOME HIGH QUALITY MOBO~~~! this is a perfect motherboard for a gamer/overclocker. Not only does it run great it looks good. Crack open your pc and its gonna make the ladies look twice!!! hahah okay okay maybe not but it makes me really happy!! Right now the best value in my opinion is buying a refurb of this board.
Summary: The performance is fantastic,once I had my components installed I was able to get my i3770k stable at 4.6ghz on the first try using mostly default bios settings. However, I use a Noctua nh-D14 cooler and my R280x video card in the first pci-e lane sits very close to the edge of the cooler (so much so that I have to use a thin ruler to depress the release switch to remove the video card).
Summary: This is a rock solid, stable board built for the extreme overclocker (if you do that sort of thing) this has more features than any other board on the market. The packaging alone tells you what you are in for, high quality and lots of extras, thunderbolt, wifi, software from asus that make tweaking, overclocking, and fine tuning easy for the newcomer or the expierenced user. This board will blow you away.
