False Advertising. This is 8x8x PCI
15 February 2012
Summary: This board was advertised as 16x16x PCI in SLI. It is not. The wording on here is vauge to lead you to believe it is 16x, but when you read the manual that came with the board, it is clearly only 8x. The performance is still ok, but why lie about it?
Summary: I'm running this board with an Intel 2500K @ 4ghz, Gskill 16gb DDR3 1866mhz, Crossfire Sapphire 6950's, 2x Corsair SSD 120gb sata 3, 2x 640gb Western Digital Black's, Creative X-Fi Titanium HD, Sony Mutli Card Reader, LG Sata 2 DVD-RW, and a Corsair AX850 watt power supply. Everything is running without a hitch. Pros: Dedicated Intel Network cards. NF200 chip. Excellent build quality. Great overclocker. Dual, tri, and quad SLI and dual and quad Crossfire.
Summary: Two of the memory slots were defected, number 1 and 2 slots to be exacted. The funny thing is even the tech. from Asus does't know what he was talking about. He said that it is normal to populated number 3 and 4 slots first or slot 1 and 2 won't work before populating slot 3 and 4. I don't think that is correct because I built computers before, and even on their manual states that the board should be always populated slot 1 and 3 or slot 2and 4 if installing 2 memory...
Summary: EDIT: This motherboard failed within the warranty period and was returned under warranty. The replacement was DOA, but Asus sent a new in box retail P8Z77 WS (upgrade) to replace the defective product. I am using a core i5-2500K with this motherboard and I had no issues with the installation at all on a fresh hard drive.
Summary: The audio doesn't work. Windows 7 64. Had problems with the board not booting after shutdown. I installed ram in the blue ram slots as recommended. When I installed them in the black slots the problem disappeared. Still having trouble getting the on board audio to work.
