Motherboard keeps shutting down

p margliotti, Amazon
22 August 2013
  • Summary: From the first day I installed this board, it kept shutting off my computer randomly with the frequency increasing as the board aged. I had to order 1 component at a time to troubleshoot this new computer and eventually ended discovering that the motherboard was the culprit.

Worst decision ever

Yevgeniy M., Newegg
27 August 2010
  • Summary: Don't buy ASUS. Ever. The absolute worst company to deal with or own.
  • Pros: It... looks pretty? The box was shiny.
  • Cons: ASUS tech support is bar none the worst agency I've ever had to deal with, and that includes the DMV and BCIS. out of four calls that I had to make to ASUS, all 4 I was hung up on after about 3 minutes on the phone. I could feel the agents rolling their eyes the minute they picked up the phone. M...

Onboard network adapter died after 8 weeks

Brian Kincaid, Amazon
24 July 2010
  • Summary: I have had the same problem mentioned in a previous review. The network adapter on the motherboard died. I have ordered a PCI-e network card, it's much cheaper than getting another motherboard. Also, who knows if a different motherboard won't have the same problem?

UNRESOLVED ISSUES - HORRIBLE ASUS TECH SUPPORT

Thomas K., Newegg
3 June 2010
  • Summary: RMA'd twice so far...working on the 3rd -BOTH times they sent it back to me, it had a dead BIOS battery - they did NOTHING but replace the battery and run their standard tests -I did not check if the motherboard forgot its BIOS settings -ASUS does not check forums -Don't waste your time contacting...
  • Pros: Had the right I/O for the right price (when on sale) Worked right out of the box - sort of... RMA service was pretty fast (~1 week turnaround)
  • Cons: Design issues (nothing serious) -Power connectors not near screws/standoffs - PCB flexes and could easily crack -Q-panel header (bundles LED, power/reset switch connectors together) is very loose -The 8-pin processor power connector needs a really long cable since it is at the top of the motherbo...

nothing but trouble

michael A., Newegg
14 May 2010
  • Summary: As for the people who say there are raid problems, thats horse manure. This was easiest raid array i have ever had to set up. I am not saying to not buy this board. Just dont buy this board AND an xfx 4850.
  • Pros: It turned on? After like 10 tries of modifying stuff. The raid was easy. I dont know what other people are saying about this but i was able to easily put 2 ssds in raid 0 and have 2 hdds as non raid members who were put as storage.
  • Cons: You have to oc memory to get it above 1333. You have to take out all but 1 memory stick just to get w7 installation, The memory only locks on 1 side. The user manual is so arbitrary about what you need to plug in. Cant go more than 30 MINUTES WITHOUT THE VGA GOING DOWN TO 1 FRAME PER 30 SECONDS. ...

Bad choice for Win Server 2008

Leon B., Newegg
23 April 2010
  • Pros: I use this same board with Windows 7 with NO problems
  • Cons: This MOBO cant load Windows 2008 server. It is a driver issue! Have worked on it, both on line and off, for 16 hours. If you are thingking of Windows 2008 server, Windows Home server, or any of the other MS server products, this board wont work!

Onboard network device failure

Mike Power, Amazon
22 April 2010
  • Summary: I have had this working in my computer for about a week. I assembled a computer from all new parts built on top of this motherboard. It took me about three weeks to get all the parts together and put the OS on it. Think standard 30 day return policies.

Arrived Defective

Kalimuthu V., Newegg
2 January 2010
  • Summary: Bought a new mother board (MSI X58). It works just great.
  • Pros: Nothing
  • Cons: Arrived defective. Took me a long time to figure out the issue. There was no display after completing the installation. Assumed that it was an issue with video card. But it worked fine when I tested in another machine. It turned out to be an issue with RAM slot. But there was no error indication ...
