Summary: This MB has some a problem with SSD drives when setting up Raid configuration. I tried to contact Asus for help but they were completely useless as they would not even admit there might be a problem and to refer to manual and it was something I was not doing right. not to happy with costumer service.
Summary: I have been trying with this board for a couple days now with no luck. The board does look good, but, first off it does not have an IDE port only SATA, my fault i guess for not doing proper research. Got a SATA optical drive, installed it, but it keeps getting stuck at the windows logo. I tried the bios flash over thing, dont think it worked because the bios name remained the same and it still has the same problem.
Summary: i have had 3 of these in my new build...first one wouldn't post second one posted but the audio jacks on the back would not work the 3rd one seems to be working but i just installed it yesterday so we will see what happens. The after hour asus support is as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle and to think about it so is most of the north american support aswell..
Summary: This worked fine until recently the USB ports disconnect and reconnect every minute. It's a very annoying problem. Tried everything from total wipe of my entire cpu tried to buy usb 3.0 for the card slots nothing... I went to fries to ask the techs and they tell me, "That's the first thing that goes out...you shoulda got the warranty" For a above average MOBO this isn't so hot.
Summary: My first of these boards worked well at first, then failed after 2 days. Returned it for a replacement which has been working well for about a week. Amazon' replacement procedure is awesome. I had a replacement board in just 3 days. So far it functions well. It's fast and the 6Gb/s SATA interface appears to be reliable with my Vertex SSD, which wasn't the case with my previous mobo (not an ASUS).
Summary: It's a great motherboard; however, I really wish that the version number of the board had been listed. At the time I was in the market for the newest version of this motherboard for it's added features which were not included on this one. Suffice it to say this product still satisfies my requirements but I do feel a bit jaded that the price was listed what it was considering that it's a REV 1.0 motherboard.
Summary: The pro's: - Looks amazing. I love the aesthetics of the motherboard. - Feels very sturdy. - Comes with a lot of software you can optionally install. - Has a fantastic feature where you can download BIOS updates (more on this in cons). - The manual was very well done (one of the best I've seen). The con's: - I had to RMA because it wouldn't work well with the AMD 8350. It worked okay for a couple of times booting, but would repeatedly fall asleep and not come back.
Summary: This Mobo was purchased by my Son for Me as a present along with a 8 core AMD , 8gb Ram and Graphics card. On first using it i noticed that my previous AMD Quad core and Asrock Board appeared as fast but i suppose that both being 4.3gb that should be the case anyway ?, I digress . I went to start up the computor one morning in the usual fashion (by pressing the momentary button for 3 seconds), the cooling fans ran briefly and stopped . Did all the usual fixits and more .
Summary: Kortet fungere veldig bra. Har koblet pc`n opp mot forsterkeren, så jeg kan se på film. Da bruker jeg hdmi kabel fra skjermkortet og henter lyden derfra. Kjøpte meg nye øretelefoner, Tritton 720, (7.1) får ikke de til å spille DTS eller DD, ASUS vil ikke betale lisens for DD, å derfor får ikke jeg bruke øretelefonene mine, 1500 kr i dass. Har alltid kjøpt ASUS, dette er siste kortet fra meg. Å har noen råd, si gjerne ifra.
Summary: hadde vært greit om det gikk an å få noe lyd ut av dette kortet da, har sett det er veldig mange andre som har akkurat samme problemet med kortet som meg. realtek audio manager registrerer når du kobler til et headsett men det kommer ikke noe lyd, bare en veldig svak skurrelyd. er ikke headsettet som er ødelagt heller. istdenfor å sende kortet tilbake bestilte jeg meg heller er asus xonar lydkort som jeg håper kommer til å fungere.
