Summary: I am actually still using this board paired with a i3 2120, 16gb of 1333 ram, and a GTX 660 for a budget build. The problem is with the voltages and turbo. According to hardware monitor and CPU-Z the voltages fluctuate a lot and fan speeds for my CPU and chassis fan register as 0 a lot of the time. Turbo is also stuck on so my i3 2120 runs at 3.3ghz all the time and in some games the voltage has spiked to the intel max spec of 1.5v.
Summary: Got this board as part of a bundle. Errors out of the box. Thought it was my setup, so I tested all the parts in other computers. Everything else worked but the board. Returned and installed the computer on a new (different brand) board and everything worked without a hitch.
Summary: This motherboard came as part of a package. I cannot tell if is good or bad because it would not boot. I found that the CPU socket pins were twisted and as a result the CPU may also be fried. Of course this happened over a weekend so I have to wait until Monday to contact anyone. Also, the UBS socket on the board is smaller than the one on the cable that goes with the case.
Summary: I installed this motherboard with ease in my wife's computer thanks to the excellent documentation. It's been years since I installed a motherboard and was surprised to find they no longer support IDE components. I installed a new SATA DVD and now my wife's old computer now runs great.
Summary: Board arrived with DIMM slot problem; system would not boot when both DIMMs inserted. PCIex16 slot (used for video card) not operational (card tested, worked fine in other systems). Initially system booted up with only DIMM installed. Eventually died completely. Never received any response from Support. Website issues made it impossible to register board. No response to additional emails, unable to reach by phone to even get an RMA.
Summary: The Board came in and was DOA on arrivial, and thier's no RMA on the motherboard; anyways this just sucks but hopefully when i order this board again hopefully they make sure this board works, like with all there products, its really cool if you can get it to work, and please test your product before you send them out come on get it together.
Excerpt: Глючные понтовые поделия от ASUS уже достали. Берёшь почти топовую модель, а в ней запредельные закидоны, невнятное поведение. Может, пофиксят в новой прошивке через полгода, а могут и забить. Не рекомендую никому.
Pros: недорогая, относительно производительная
Cons: Быстро сгорел порт Ethernet, всего один слот PCI при двух бестолковых PCI Express
