Summary: Issue #1: I see plenty of people on here have complained about USB stability. I've been having similar issues with devices disappearing, failing to initialize, etc. In some cases I've completely lost my keyboard or mouse connection.
Summary: I just purchased 2x P9X79 Deluxe motherboards after having a perfect experience with the P9X79 board. As always I check the compatible hardware list from Asus and follow their recommendation stringently, therefore I’ve never had a bad experience until now.
Summary: The ASUS P9X79 DELUXE is a cool board with a lot of features. I've put together several CAD stations using this model. But, the last one (not purchased at Amazon as they were out of stock) has been a disaster. A memory slot is bad and will not recognize any module placed in it.
Summary: I don't recommend this board. I built a high end computer as the basis for a flight simulator only to have the motherboard fail, requiring me to dismantle my computer. The computer repair shop confirmed my fear and so now, the hunt for a reliable MB continues. Very disappointed.
Summary: I have had memory peroblems for months. I even swithced from Corsair to GSkill, and the same problems persist. BIOS is totally updated, but the board will only recognize 3 SIMMS. Either brand, same problem. Memory was bought to satisfy ASUS' QVL list. Their web site service is A-W-F-U-L.
Customer Support is 100 times worst than the product...

Summary: My Bluetooth and WiFi module is not functioning as it is designed but realized that the ASUS Customer support is the worst thing you can have in this world. After opening the case, they should have sent me the forms for XShip (meaning they send me the replacement motherboard and I will send mine...
Summary: this late review is because amazon refuse to replace the missing cpu(intel i7-3960x), as such i had to purchase another one. here's the review: its what's in the inside that really counts. i was attracted to the packaging of the asus p9x79deluxe, it has the features of a hourglass shaped female.
Summary: Well, this motherboard is a piece of trash, I bought two of them, one online and the other one from local store (microcenter) I had to return the motherboard to them too, then they told me that those motherboard were defective, and they recommended me the rampage instead, Don't go for this instead...
Summary: I ordered this board because I really liked the features it offered. When I got it, I thoroughly read the installation instructions and carefully installed the motherboard with a new Intel i7 3960X CPU and 32GB of memory into the system.
