Summary: This product is currently not working with two RAM sticks in dual channel configuration. After the third call to Asus support, they agreed to RMA this board, but I need to take photos and jump through more hoops because I do not have the serial number, which appears to have only been on the box. To be clear, this board was a problem when first purchased in Nov 2013, but Amazon exchanged it without issue. Great customer service as usual.
Didn't last a year and Asus support is full of bull, it's a gamble

Summary: I gambled by bying this mobo and I lost. It lasted about half a year and then started going down. First, at some point, the system refused to boot. I opened the case, found out the red light on the mobo next to RAM slots was on. WTF, I didn't change anything! I reset RAM and got the system going. Then the BSODs came: with increasing frequency. Now I can't even get to the POST setup, it ignores "Del" and "F2" keys and goes straight to booting into the system.
I have never been so frustrated by a motherboard in my life.

Summary: OK, to be fair, this was an open box buy, so there may be something wrong with this board other than the obvious design flaws and awful software. I think ASUS is going the way of ABIT. It used to be a really good brand, but they seem to be busy burning up their brand name by selling low quality junk so they can make a nice fat profit. I spent 3 whole days trying to get this thing to work correctly.
Summary: Turned on my PC but had no video and was getting a red VGA LED. Tried a different video card and still nothing but both video cards were fine on the other PC. I had a P8P67 motherboard from Asus that also died in less than a year though I had bought this one before that happened else I wouldn't have purchased it. I didn't even bother with the warranty repair on this one as the experience with the other Asus motherboard was terrible.
Summary: It only last 6 months and then suddenly stopped working. When I turn the power on, the pc tries to start for a couple of seconds then everything powers OFF. It stays OFF for a few seconds then tries to start and so on... I sent the unit back to Asus and guess what: it came back in the same state! I am so frustrated! My computer is down for about a month now! At the moment I am at the second RMA. We'll see...
Summary: I've brought most of my motherboard from Asus, and this has been the worst so far in terms of reliability. Not sure what the deal is with this board, but this is not the quality i expected from ASUS. I brought this during Sep 2012, now is April 2013. Last month the onboard usb-3 sockets failed, but wasn't critical so I ignored it, this month the on board sound card has failed, this I cannot ignore, so now I have to order a separate sound card until I figure out what to...
Summary: Please be aware that the item description as of today (May 7, 2012) is wrong. This is NOT the z77 chipset. This is the H77 chipset. The H77 does NOT allow for CPU overclocking so if you bought a K series chip (like I did), you will be out of luck.
Summary: Just like to thank the person who returned one of these boards to Amazon, having damaged the pins. I'm sure you were delighted at Amazons customer service and got a replacement or a refund. Thanks to your deception and self interest I've lost a days work when I received the ripped manual, some of the accessories.....the only bonus was that one of your chassis pins was still attached. Send me your details and I'll return it!!
Summary: When I finally received my item after it getting lost in the post, I was quite chuffed to be honest. About a week later I opened it for the first time and had discovered that there was no protective case for the processor slot and two of the pins were bent. I emailed the seller for the second time about the second issue with this motherboard and I received the reply "I will see if I have any more on the shelf" to which I have heard nothing back since.
