YAY i got my asus motherboard!

rudy b., Newegg
24 March 2013
  • Summary: All in all, great motherboard i just think i got shafted on the one i got being faulty as all get out. Cant return my motherboard because i didnt have the, "original" stuff that was suppose to come with it. so now i have a expensive piece of junk :-(
  • Pros: It was nice... except the fact it wasnt in a non static bag and no disc, which doesnt matter because of the rog port on the back for the bios. The first 2-3 days i had it, amazing, didnt get close to over heating amazing oc ability, and great starting oc profiles.
  • Cons: where do i begin, well the first 2 days after i built my computer i had a no post, so i was like cool, bought the wrong ram, got new ram. 3 days later, restart loop, reset the bios and and everything then started to work for 15 minutes... then 5 minutes, now im down to 30 seconds or a failure to ...

Motherboard Issues

Michael G., Newegg
24 October 2012
  • Summary: Motherboard was working for 6 months then it was unable to find the HDD to start up Windows 7. Reinstalled Windows 7 three times due to a start up error.
  • Pros: Great for enthusiasts! LGA2011 for the latest and greatest i7 Processors. It has more items on it than I really need, which means upgradeability.
  • Cons: Hard to reach SATA controller when using a big video card like the Nvidia GTX series. The SATA controller itself sometimes will not find/read the HDD, so it will only boot up to the BIOS or it will give you an error message that there's no disk. Flashed the BIOS to the lastest version, but had to...

Frustrated

D. Fullmer, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: Okay, generally ASUS has done fine by me but I have to admit to being frustrated with this board. It has locked up three times and done the blue screen data dump. By the way everything on automatic. I have not even tried to push anything as far as OC.

No X-Socket

Victor Lopez, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: Im quite dissapointed by this product. I was confident on ASUS ROG series, but to my amazement & rage, when I opened the box to install it on my system WHILE keep on using my socket 1366 waterblock, I was surprised by the utter absence of the X-socket, so I wasted my coollaboratory ultra & was left...

  • Excerpt: В целом, изначально отличная плата, испорченная неработающими контроллерами от Asmedia.
  • Pros: Могучая оверклокерская плата, со всеми вытекающими: куча настроек, продуманный дизайн.
  • Cons: Не работающие в принципе USB3 порты. Даже с установленными последними дровами - внешний SSD Transcend просто отваливается от системы через секунду после включения. Поставил в систему дешёвый китайский pciex-USB3 контроллер - работает без проблем. ; Порты SATA, которые на контроллере Asmedia - про...
