NO COMPUTER after 15 MONTHS of a 36 MONTH legally promissed "Warranty" PLUS $1,000 +++

John A. Leo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the ASUS card 19 months ago. It died after 15 months of the 36 month contractual warranty. I have been trying to get an RMA replacement that works for -- 4 months -- MONTHS (NOT TWO WEEKS mind you)-- and ASUS -- keeps returning to me DOA motherboards according to 7 senior repair technitions in 4 different computer repair shops. I woundn't be surprised that they get their DOA Motherboard and then resend the very same board back to me!

There maybe an electrical defect with this board

Glenn Walker, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I replaced a P9x79 deluxe board with the P9X79-E WS board. 45 days after purchase, on boot, there were two big sparks with a puff of smoke. One spark was near the video card and the other near the cpu. Had to act fast to stop the board from catching fire. Still can smell the burned circuits. No overclocking, just turned on the computer. Just emailed tech support and waiting for a reply.

  • Cons: 1. Poor RAID support with built in SATA

Great board, could be better.

  • Pros: - Support for up to Quad SLI
  • Cons: - Everything is packed a bit too close together, wasted 100$ on a Phanteks CPU heatsink and fan set that couldn't fit with my Ram.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOARD!

John R., Newegg
13 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this board for WS capabilities but ultimately realized it makes more sense to either go full on ws or full on consumer parts. the idea of making a hybrid is a bad idea.
  • Pros: Asus customer service was pretty good, so thankfully I was able to get ahold of techs when I needed.
  • Cons: All the negative comments I read on here from multiple other users indicating problems with the bios, DOA boards ect were real. I made the mistake of buying this board before reading the reviews, but thankfully I did read reviews so I knew to update the bios, which was at least a four hour process, very painful.
