Summary: I have had the board sent back for RMA twice now. Each time they replace a component and send me back the same board. Two things with this that are just plain wrong. One is they leave a lot of flux residue in the workspace. Two is that the board still has issues.
Summary: While this has been pretty rock steady since owned the rating is based more on ASUS as a company. Reached out to ASUS with an issue today I had with my Nexus 7 that was 3 months off warranty. I have been using ASUS products in my computer builds for ages.
Pros: Motherboard works, but the wi-fi accessory stopped working.
Cons: The Wi-Fi Go accessory stopped working. I called ASUS to get a replacement accessory so that I can connect to the internet wirelessly again. For ASUS to complete this process ASUS wants to RMA the entire motherboard. I have a lot of important stuff to do on my computer. They want me to break down...
Summary: The Wi-Fi Go accessory stopped working. I called ASUS to get a replacement accessory so that I can connect to the internet wirelessly again. For ASUS to complete this process ASUS wants to RMA the entire motherboard. I have a lot of important stuff to do on my computer.
Summary: If there was a way to give them a lower star rating I would , customer sucks suck , all that want you to do is play the email game . They will not help you ,if your smart do not buy this board I promise you will be sorry . Don't learn the hard way like I have .
Summary: I had to buy a somewhat lower-end motherboard from another manufacturer with the same socket and chipset so I could have my computer back while I wait for ASUS to hopefully fix this. All of my previous components are now in that, and everything is working fabulously.
Pros: Beautiful, apparently solid board. Positive previous experiences with ASUS products. Lots of SATAs, 3 PCI-e x16 slots, 2 USB 3 internal headers and 4 USB 3's on the rear I/O. Everything ran quick and rock solid for 13 months. Prettty blue heatsinks and slots (not actually important, since I'm not...
Cons: Died suddenly at the 13 month mark. Shut down under light use with accompanying burning smell. No heat detected physically, all other components checked and were fine. Attempting to boot again several hours later yielded failure to POST and a "no RAM detected" beep code. After removing the board ...
Summary: Support through Asus has not been what I would have expected and I am disappointed. Created a support case and still unable to get through to support. Do not know if I can return as I did the rebate, which means the upc has been cut from the box.
Pros: Nice set-up, easy install.
Cons: DDR slots DOA - would not accept any memory (and I borrowed a lot of mem to test).
Summary: I read the bad reviews and good reviews, and I went out on a limb and bought it for my girl friends custom build. worked great for about a day then the problems started. And now it will not post at all. I have used Asus products on and off for 20 years now.
The only thing worse than this motherboard is the company that should be ...

Summary: I installed this motherboard in a new build and it failed fairly quickly. I worked with ASUS and they told me to send it in for warranty repair. I pulled the CPU and installed the plastic cover over the the socket and sent it in.
