Summary: Could never get the USB 3 ports to work, even with 3 different sets of drivers. If I set the BIOS to do an auto overclock, which is supposed to have the system test itself and set best overclock for stable, the system will Blue Screen after a couple of hours. ASUS tech support is a joke and offers no real solutions. Stay away from this board if you need a high end workstation that is stable and works. This one isn't it.
Summary: I've been a long time customer of Asus since I bought my first laptop. I've since bought the new IPS 27", the RT-AC66u router and now the P9X79 WS motherboard. My motherboard came without the I/O shield, but I went ahead and installed it anyways. I always figured I could just get a part sent to me. I contacted Asus support and the only way to get an I/O shield is to return the motherboard or pay $20 dollars plus shipping for it.
Summary: Built my computer with an i7 and the mobo worked for about 2 minutes. After installing the video card the mobo decided the boot decide and cpu led light wanted to flash constantly and chain reset. Replaced it with an ARock and it's running smooth.
Summary: After spending a day attempting to the mobo to pass the dram post test, A call to Asus tech support ended in the advice that the ram controller was bad and to send the modo back. I attempted to use brands PNY 4GB 1333, Corsair 4Gb 1333, Corsair Vengance 4Gb 1600, G Skill 2gb 1333, and Patriot 4gb 1866 non passed post DRAM test
Summary: Motherboard was crushing down the whole computer. It was freezing everything and I wasn't able to use a mouse or keyboard. It took me some time to find out that that the couse of problem was motherboard and not the other parts or software. I wouldn't buy Asus motherboard second time I had too many problems with it.
Summary: Hallo, nachdem ich meinen PC in Sachen MB + CPU aufrüsten wollte, fiel meine Wahl auf dieses Mainboard + den i7 3820. Alles eingebaut und schon ging's los. Diverse rote Leuchten auf dem Mainboard leuchteten, der PC machte keinen Mucks. Nach ewigem Googlen fand ich heraus, dass das Bios des Mainboards nicht aktuell ist ( und das standardmässig ), man solle zuerst die Biosversion Flashen.
