... Mobo was used to build one of the most fun computers I have done in a while
16 October 2014
Summary: This Mobo was used to build one of the most fun computers I have done in a while. Small, fast, loaded with features. I used Corsair Vengeance Pro memory. Working well for me. Would buy another in a second. Really nice feature set.
Summary: I have had this board since late April. It performed beautifully. This week it quit working. Problem is pretty bad. It will go into UEFI but cannot go from there because all my SATA drives have been destroyed. My SSD, my DVD burner and my HDD. Never experienced anything like this. Tech support was useless. By the way, the power supply tests just fine. Corsair CX450M. If ASUS can get this resolved, I would be happy to give it 5 stars.
Moving to a smaller form factor was critical for me ...

Summary: Moving to a smaller form factor was critical for me but I didn't want to give up gaming quality and features that I had grown accustomed to in Asus Motherboards. This board is so advanced that I don't really have to tinker with too many settings to get what I want. The only down side that I have with this board is no 1x or 2x slot for my TV tuner card and I'm looking at my options for that but it's not a deal breaker for me.
Summary: This evening I knocked over a beer on my desk which caused most of its content to pour directly into the 120mm fan ontop of my case, which, like some sort of unholy sprinkler system, coated my entire motherboard with beer. I cut all power to my computer and spent about 15 minutes cleaning my motherboard off with paper towels and Q-tips. After all was said and done it still overclocks to 4.6Ghz on water like a champ.
Summary: This motherboard is only motherboard received in great condition. I have not installed in a computer case yet. It had no accessories as cables, screws, or CD for system driver software. I will have to buy a few items later here on Amazon to complete my build and get my software drivers from ASUS. The motherboard was a great buy so I'm not complaining.
Summary: This board is awesome. I can not say enough good things about it. It is rock solid and has an amazing array of high quality features. It is unbelievable that everything fits onto this board and it is not a mess of a layout. Everything has been carefully thought out and considered. There is plenty of room a heat sink, especially if you are going to use a closed loop cooler, which lets face it in this segment you should strongly consider it.
