Pros: The board worked great for the first 18 months, it was fast, and handled many disk drives.
Cons: At 18 months the first of the SATA ports stopped working, as time went on more died. now only 4 of the eight function. Some time after 36 months the cmos looses all settings including the date if the power is removed.
Pros: Lot of features and overall solid build quality
Cons: If you have any issues, don't expect Asus tech support to be able to help you. They told me to "check if there is any specifically demands for hardware collection." The system has been very unstable for quite some time and will not run properly with all 12gb of RAM installed. I currently have 6gb...
Summary: I'm giving this board a 2 instead of a 1 since it at least runs in Win Vista 64 and Win 7 32 just fine. (defeats the purpose of having 6 slots of ram...) I have no problems with this board running Windows Vista X64, I had a raid 5 array with 6 samsung SSDs each at 128GB a pop and it ran flawlessly.
Pros: Somewhat decent value (Other boards with many more features cost marginally more. ) Received a gold award from HardOCP. Good features, tons of spare sata connections for a Vista gaming and file server.
Cons: Board does not run stable in Win 7 X64 with a samsung SSD. I came to this conclusion after checking the voltages the psu was putting out, trying two other SSDs (A corsair and a smaller 64GB samsung.) and even after a motherboard RMA. The machine seems to run stable only if I do not put too much l...
Summary: I still recommend ASUS MOB because I have used ASUS MOB in all the pc that I have built. Defective 1 out of 100 is acceptable.
Pros: Durable, reliable, very strong, OC easy, good BIOS. Can be handled roughly.
Cons: Asus MOB was the best in the market till yesterday. But for some reason they have been slided down to 2nd spot. I bought this MOB last week and the onboard audio failed to initialize. I contacted Asus customer service. They were superb. Troubleshoot took five minutes and gave me a case number to ...
bought as "new" but received as questionable "new" or "used"

Summary: I ordered the item as "new" but I received the item without any tape or original wrapping, it was just in the original box and placed in the amazon shipping box. It looked new to me so I used it, to avoid the hassel of returning it and waiting for a new item to come.
Summary: With a drive cage two inches in front the main board, the SATA cables have to contort to plug in. This has caused a heavy stress on these connectors and in fact they have broken on the top row making the connectors unusable.
Pros: Nice layout. Easy to install front panel connectors as they have a block that all of these single/double connector (speaker/power-reset switches etc.) blocks plug onto that you can hold in your hand where you can see outside of the case. Then, this single block plugs onto the main board. A nice i...
Cons: Here's the disappointment. Really two disappointments. First and foremost, it doesn't seem to hold the OC settings that I've setup. It runs fine for 3-4 weeks and then it resets back to default BIOS settings. I've updated the BIOS so this isn't the problem. This morning, it took me a long time to...
Summary: I bought a system with this MB and I couldn't get it to write DVD's. I tried 3 DVD burners, 3 brands of DVD, 3 O/S's, WinXP, Win7, MS-DOS, and 3 different programs without success. I finally bought another full system with a Gigabyte MB which ran perfectly.
Für 2-Way-SLI absolut UNausreichend wenn man genug RAM will
Glücklicher Kunde, Amazon

Summary: Ich hatte mir das Board gekauft und gehofft 2 mal 8800GT UND 8GB Ram zu betreiben - FEHLanzeige! Sobald ich den 4. RAM Riegel da zugesteckt habe war die Performance hinüber sprich Windows brauchte zum booten 40 Minuten. Dann habe ich 6 RAM Riegel (12GB) rein getan wieder nicht nutzbar.
