Pros: I received the box, sealed from the factory. It comes in a plain white box. There were no IO shield or sata cables included in the box. The CD sleeves are wrinkled and look used. This was disappointing. I will be contacting Asus.
Cons: Was just running Facebook when all of a sudden it stopped working. The fans were running the light were on but no display. Could not do a soft shut down. Could not shutoff at the power switch. Had to turn off at the back. Put in a different video card, cleared the come, pull ram down to one , tri...
Summary: Got this to replace my old Asus board which had a bad DIMM slot.. Just to find out the replacement has two bad slots. Also looked to be 3 bent pins on the CPU socket, but that didn't cause any issues.
Pros: Great design, easy to install.
Cons: Bad DIMM_A1 and DIMM_A2. Video card was not detected on PCIE port 1.
Cons: Have to RMA the board again. Will no longer post. Also, if you use an OEM CPU cooler it may overlap the first RAM slot. As of now I have not had good luck with this board, But I'm hoping the third times the charm.
Summary: Annoyed that the refurb center did not catch this - whilst I have a failure analysis background and have worked in MoBo FA for years prior (am now in Semis) - this is basic stuff. Someone didn't do their job.
Pros: 3x PCI 16x slots as opposed to the LX
Cons: Would not POST upon installation; Mem_OK DRAM LED illumination tipped me off. Verified my RAM Sticks were still good - channel A2 not functional.
Summary: I've been using ASUS motherboards in all my builds. However, the ASUS motherboard in my previous build wasn't perfect either. Every once in a while it would fail to POST and I'd have to clear to the CMOS to get it working again. I trusted ASUS.
Pros: This was a good motherboard while it lasted. I started out looking at some of the higher-end Z77 motherboards from ASUS (something with a better audio solution) but settled on this one. The analog audio output was better than I had expected. It's features and versatility made it a great value unt...
Cons: Totally unreliable after a few months of use! I bought this motherboard for new build in April of 2013, along with an i5-3570K, a Radeon HD7950, 8GB DDR3 2133, etc. Nothing is overclocked. My new rig didn't get a lot of use (just some occasional gaming) until a few months ago when I started using...
Summary: Pretty flimsy construction, and LAN port is inop, trying to install drivers was confusing. Continuously trying to reinstall chip set drivers. I guess you have to spend big bucks with Asus to get anything worth having. Too bad.
Pros: inexpensive, the UEFI Bios is sweet.
Cons: Been an Asus fanboy for years but this board is pretty lame. I've always purchased their upper level boards. This is my first experience with an Asus "value" board and I can't find any value in it at all. Will have to RMA due to LAN port is inop.
Cons: Ordered 2 of these boards for new system setups. Both systems are identical. One works, one doesn't. After reading the other reviews, it is clear that this board is DOA. Now, I have to do a replacement ONLY (because newegg doesn't allow refunds on motherboards), send this thing back at my cost, a...
