Summary: I received this item and it was defective and had to send it back. It was a dead motherboard I got it peoffecionally intall in my new pc and they told me it was defective and needed to be replace.
Summary: I had issues with the board all throughout the year it actually worked. I should have replaced it off the get go but as problems with motherboards go they were intermittent and hard to pin point. I am done buying Asus products. Lately their Q/C has become inconsistent.
Summary: Bought this brand new board from Amazon, it was delivered on time. I have used Asus manual that was shipped with board and assembled my computer. Since day1 I was having problems booting into my machine. CPU_LED is always red and motherboard is turns on for a few seconds and goes off, this cycle goes on for about 20 times and If I am lucky at that point, it will POST and I see my windows screen, a lot of times it doesn't POST. I have experienced BSOD couple of times.
Summary: Recently I purchased two complete specs. for two computers, one for the wife and one for me. Completely identical systems. Only problem? One system runs fine and the other wouldn't even output from the GPU. After trying to resolve the GPU not displaying, I sent the board back. Instead of a new board, I was told I could only receive a refurbished, yet tested, model. Assuming this was the best course, I took it.
Summary: I bought this mobo hoping it would be the foundation for a good gaming machine, many websites have featured this as one of the best boards to have. Lo and behold, when my board arrived in the mail, in arrived sans I/O Q-shield, Q-connector, SATA II and SATA III cables, and USB 3.0 adapter bracket. I didn't even know I was supposed to have those items until I read the book.
Summary: So we get this motherboard through amazon, we install it into computer checked and recheck everything, we boot up good, we get windows 7 up and running...now it comes time to stop running the monitor through the onboard VGA that on the motherboard and instead connect it to the gtx 560 ti video card we have...guess what the motherboard can even see it...we thought at first it was the video card, so we put another video card in there and same thing.
Summary: I have had sound problems with two different boards. The first board I received had no sound. The second one worked for about a month, but then went out and would only produce a high pitched whine. Would not recommend.
Summary: I don't have the energy to write a long diatribe. Suffice it to say I went through 3 of these boards. 1 worked for a week and burnt out. The other 2 never worked. I had all the appropriate pieces for this build. In the end, I returned all 3 and went with an ASRock P67 Extreme6 board. How ironic that AsusTek's lower quality brethren booted up the 1st time, and my memory for this mobo isn't "supported", but I had no issues. This z68 mobo is a POS.
