Going strong since 2009

Jurgen S., Newegg
13 April 2015
  • Summary: I can't believe it's lasted for so long and works great! Definitely wasn't a cheap purchase, but it's paid for itself in the life it's achieved.
  • Pros: I've owned this board since 6/2009, it's been going strong since! I originally ran it with an i7-920 that I managed to push up to 4.3ghz, but ran at 3.8ghz daily for about 6 years. Earlier this year I upgraded to a Xeon 5650(6 core 32nm CPU) and plugged in into my Rampage II Extreme. Originally i...
  • Cons: Lacks some newer features, like USB 3.0 and PCI Express 3.0. I did compensate for that though by purchasing and installing a $20 USB 3.0 PCIExpress card.

Solid, no problems

Timothy T., Newegg
3 February 2012
  • Summary: Good solid board, I was a little hesitant spending this much on a board at first, but it has lasted and preformed well.
  • Pros: This is a solid board that I have used to first overclock an i7-920 to 4.3ghz and then later to overclock an i7-970 to 4.2ghz both with less than 1.3v. It also supports 24GB of ddr3 1600 at their specified clocks.
  • Cons: It does not really support 3 way sli unless you have a case with an extra pci slot.

Awesome as usaul Asus

John M., Newegg
3 April 2011
  • Pros: Once again the Asus team has come through with a remarkable MB. MB does as it was supposed to do as designed by the Engineers at Asus. This is my fourth from Asus and Posted up easy as cheezy. I have tried at least 8 different boards for building in the last 15 years including Abit which was the ...

AWESOME board with SOLID performance

Anonymous, Newegg
12 January 2011
  • Summary: A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for, you want quality, ya gotta pay for it.
  • Pros: You want performance? You want overclocking options out the wazoo? Pick this board! I've built my own PC's now for about 10 years now and I've always used ASUS boards. The board has a nice look, plenty of LED's to indicate the system status and performance, and a bios that lets you control every ...
  • Cons: Layout. I was a little unhappy to see that the PCIE x 1 slot that you have to use was located above the first PCIE 16X slot which was then blocked by a massive southbridge heatsink! Then, ASUS tries to get you to use some small little sound card that convieniently fits in that space and they try ...

Great Motherboard

Andrew S., Newegg
10 November 2010
  • Summary: A couple cons, but just me nitpicking. Now if I can decide on if I want to buy another 12 gigs of RAM or not! :)
  • Pros: Replaced defective Asus "Supercomputer" motherboard with this one. Have not been disappointed. I've owned it for quite a while now not having any problems. Bios is simple and easy to navigate through. Highly recommended board for those wanting to build a new PC.
  • Cons: Just minor complaints. I wish the RAM was a little bit further away from the CPU. I'm doing air cooling with a Scythe Mugen and it hangs over some of the RAM. Not a problem, just a nuisance for someone with case cleanliness OCD like myself. The supplied sound card was..lacking, and way too close ...

Sweet Mobo

Karl M., Newegg
27 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this as part of a set for a new rig: Thermaltake Spedo Advance Intel i7 930 processor (with stock heatsink) Asus Rampage II Mobo OCZ Gold DDR3 1600 2GBx3Sticks 850w Corsair Modular ATX PSU WD 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive Nvidia GT240 (Until my Sapphire 4870x2 comes back from RMA) Windows 7 Home...
  • Pros: So far so good. I don't have the issues that some of you other guys seem to have with this board. My pins were all the way they were supposed to be, my ram slots work (or at least the 3 I'm using, since I really have no intentions to go over 6gb of RAMS. Sound card worked. I really like the LED p...
  • Cons: Pricey...but you pay for what you get. I wasn't sure if I should put this in the cons or not, but the board is slightly larger than the standard, which shouldnt be an issue in most cases. However my case has cable management through the back, and heat partitions, which assumes the board will foll...
