Summary: I'm a huge fan of Asus and I still have an Asus mobo that is over 20 years old now and still working. As a matter of fact, I have more than a few pieces of Asus equipment over 10 years old because their stuff seems to never go bad.
Summary: I built the computer in June 13 using this motherboard. It Worked perfectly until mid December 2013 when it would not boot. The problem was the VGA LED remained on so there was a problem in this area. I first started a Chat which went on with 2 individuals. No one had a "fix" for the problem.
Summary: Well, this was a 'gaming build' and i had high hopes to have this for some years...some months about 4 months and it's down. First problem occurred with the headphone/mic jacks-they stopped working, so i said fine, i used a keyboard with headphone/mic jack.
Summary: Currently sent email to Asus to get help on my home computer now down 1 month with no "light in the tunnel" as far as help from Asus. I will file in small claims court next week, getting no where with Asus.
Pros: This is my third board, had two previous RMA's. Takes too long to RMA, many phone calls to get a result, now this board has worked ok for one year.
Cons: See pro's---works ok, if it quits under warranty, do not expect a easy result. Their service sub contracter appears to want multiply phone calls, an ex employee said they were paid for each call and wanted users to call multiple times.
Summary: Would really like to use the ASUS utility to see what my temps are since I'm running a water cooled system.
Pros: Great board, fast, and gives me the options I wanted to do. kinda....
Cons: Just installed the MOBO yesterday. Installed server 2012 and the cd isnt compatible with server 2012. Couldn't install anything off that disk. I had to use a different computer to download the NIC driver so that I can continue to search for the rest of the drivers that I needed.
Summary: I've built two computers in my short existence (34 years), and both were built this month. I used this board on my second build. I used a cheaper, less featured AMD AM2 Gigabyte motherboard in a PC I built for my parents. The Gigabyte build went together smoothly. It was surprisingly easy.
Summary: Not sure what to do. Is it a bad CPU ... motherboard .... disk (SSD) virus? So, I went to find what the current high end is - looks like this is still it :(
Pros: The feature set seems good. It has the things I wanted (USB 3, SATA 6)
Cons: Seems to be self-destructing. It ran windows 8 preview fine for 7 months. Then RTM ok for a few months, then one day bam, reboot loops. I went back to windows 7. Then bam, reboot loops. Back to win 8 - ok for a day or two - now sometimes will not even get a bios screen, but if it can, reboot loop...
