Summary: Asus support for motherboard is the absolute worst. My motherboard runs but will only recognize 8gb memory. Only 2 slots works. There are 6 slots. After contacting support, I got literally nonsensical responses. After much exasperation, I got a recommend for an rma and put in for it. I've been trying to get rma for weeks and can't even get a response as to whether or not the rma has even been started. No response to my many emails. Buy at your own peril.
Excerpt: NONE This motherboard shorted out after 4 months, what makes this worse is that ASUS consumer service keeps placing me on hold and ignoring me for hours until I hang up. What undesirable business practice. When I lastly asked for a supervisor, she said I'd have to wait for one particular to contact me, which of course never happened. This Mobo is supposed to have a three year warranty but they won't replace it so I guess it's useless.
Excerpt: Excellent-searching board in a clear-sided case. Random blue screens - machine_verify_exception fault. Making use of authorized ram - Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Ɠ X 2 gig). i7 - 950. PCPowerCooling 750 power supply. Re-seated all components and connectors, such as ram and CPU. No enable. Swapped energy provide - very same issue. Re-installed Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit three instances - similar thing. CPU temp = 36 degrees C, so it's not an overheating issue. About to go crazy!
Excerpt: lots of functions. apparently some of these boards have a warm boot situation (I've discovered a handful of other individuals who have this same challenge). also, in all probability because I've got a slightly defective board, I can't change a single thing in the bios devoid of it shutting down (not even the order of boot drives). So all the cool features? yeah I don't have access to 'em. asus support web page is a mess.
Excerpt: Looks greatUSB three.Built in XFi Installed my Pc, and this motherboard's PCi-E slots had been dead. I was thrilled.... PCi slot covered in SLI Hopefully I won't genuinely have to pay for shipping on an item that was shipped to me Defective...
Excerpt: Really uncomplicated to setup, loads of gamer attributes. Received defective board that would not let system to boot or post correctly as extended as the 8 pin energy plug was connected (same as several other individuals who reviewed this board). I RMA'd the board following about 1 week and was quite disturbed to have to pay Newegg a shipping fee to get a replacement board shipped for a defective board purchased below the normal warranty.
Excerpt: The function set of this board is absolutely great, the finest accessible mATX out there. ASUS tech support epic fail. The board I received from Newegg is defective, "f4" or 蔵" Windows bluescreen after booting from cold (thermal) state. I spent months debugging, only had limited free of charge time on weekends. Changed PSU, CPU, memory, Video, case and mounting which pretty considerably only leaves the board as the supply of challenge.
Excerpt: Functions in little size Asus utilized to make fantastic, solid boards. I just extracted a Rampage Gene II from a very compact install (so, it was a discomfort) in a Thermaltake Lanbox. It was put in mid 2010. About December, the BSOD circumstance began. It started with Delayed Create fails (I have an SSD). Intelligent information from the SSD was all great, and it tests fine in other machines and other drives/cables cause similar error.
