Won't boot :(

Stephen C., Newegg
20 November 2015
  • Summary: I haven't yet RMAed this board yet since I'm not positive the MemOK! button is defective or that the board is defective. I'm giving it 1 star pending revision to a higher rating if I can get this resolved quickly with Newegg or if it turns out to be operator error.
  • Pros: None yet.
  • Cons: Won't boot. The "MemOK!" button does nothing. The button itself has no tactile feedback - it feels like it has "bottomed out" and could be defective. I've never pushed a button, even a tiny one, that didn't move at all. Even flat membrane switches move. See questions in Comments section.

Ram problems

Ronald H., Newegg
4 September 2015
  • Pros: The board takes the LGA 2011 - which is rare.
  • Cons: This board has known ram issues and Asus should do a recall, but hasn't. This means when you go to upgrade Ram later, you will likely experience big problems.

USB 3.0 does not work on these

Matthew H., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Pros: Upgrades to 64 GB of Ram (which is more than you'd really need, but still cool)
  • Cons: On boot up, it tells me my fan is not working, but I know for a fact it is, even when I nearly max out my 20gb of ram and rendering. For a while I was manually going into bios to get around this and then choosing which hard drive to boot from until I just turned off the notification. USB 3.0 DOES...

Poor Quality

Mohamed A., Newegg

  • Pros: Good price.
  • Cons: We received the Motherboard and the Ethernet port wasn't working. Called customer support they confirmed the problem and requested the return of the MB for replacement. I had to pay $17 for the shipping.

Seriously?

PAUL S., Newegg
28 May 2014
  • Summary: Great delivery time - truly impressive New Egg! Thanks new egg for offering extended replacement plans - think I will be using mine.
  • Pros: Connectivity, Company name.
  • Cons: Had to flash bios twice but one ASUS tech was fantastic and patient on the phone. Still having problems, I later had to carry out two complete re-formats to solve program lock up issues where I finally got some good advice from a friend to check the bios date which defaulted several years in the ...
