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: 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: Funker utmerket på det meste, men nettverkdriveren crasher ofte. dette fører til pc crash og restart. ikke morsomt når det skjer værtfall 1 gang om dagen. Fant en løsning på problemet, installere et eget nettverkskort... men det koster ekstra osv. forventet bedre.
Excerpt: Первая не запустилась ее поменяли. У второй отказал встроенный звук, тоже заменил. В гарантийке предположили, что я ее неправильно эксплуатирую, но разгоном и заменой напряжения я не занимался, так что вот вам и Асус.
Pros: Цена, поддержка булей без танцев с прошивкой, русский биос.
Cons: Сата разъемы это fail, подключение к ним новых устройств, превращается в квест, как бы так поставить чтобы было удобно и не сорвать уже стоящие. Возможно те у кого большие корпуса этого не заметят.
