The motherboard is fine so far

Nils L. Myers "gdi-guy", Amazon
17 April 2015
  • Summary: The motherboard is fine so far, but can not say that about Asus' support. I ended up purchasing this board in a pinch as Asus did not replace a faulty board under warranty with a working board as promised.

Would definitely not recommend. Please stay away.

Raymond W., Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: I would definitely not recommend others on this product. I ordered it on the October of 24th and about a week ago, the ethernet port already stopped working. This definitely questions the quality of this Motherboard since I've only started using this product for about a month and a half before the...

Completely broke in 6 months

MrPat, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: A quick note, I bought this from another source in new condition. Simply broke, won't go into bios, no video whatsoever and it claims it is a RAM problem(Even though I followed instructions and installed 4 different singular sticks of RAM).

Arrived DOA

Stem, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Got this board to build a new machine for my wife. I installed an I7-4930K, powered it on and then... nothing. I Google'd the board and found from the ASUS website that it may not work because the BIOS that the board shipped was not compatible with the processors.

Dead on arrival with no POST; VGA_led error

cudak888, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I didn't even get a chance to get past POST with this board - for it wouldn't POST, right out of the box. Board would stop working with a solid VGA red LED. The factory BIOS on this board was Rev. 4502, so the i7 4930k I installed in it was supported. Double-checked the CPU pins. Perfect.

Bad memory dimm, no global support.

Carlos, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: Bought this on Amazon, on a trip to US, found out there is a bad dimm, it only read 24gb from my 32gb corsair vengeance, i did all the mem tests, everything is fine, except for dimm C1 that always show Abnormal on Bios. Sadly i just realized Asus does not have a Global warranty as Corsair.

Great Motherboard and Features but not TUF as advertised.

Marlon Evans, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this board two months ago for my first build in preparation for the Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3 release. Although the memory specifications for the Sabertooth X79 were overkill, no game really requires over 8GB of RAM (not even that much), I wanted to make sure that my first build would not...

Defective batches

TipoMazon, Amazon
11 April 2012
  • Summary: I've never had a problem with Asus motherboards, and that's all I've been using for the past 20 years. This one, however, had faulty audio jacks from day one. Got it replaced quickly by Amazon, and the SECOND motherboard is defective.

ASUS RMA IS HORRIBLEEEEE!!

Gabriel Grisolia, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: Really guys. Really consider in buying ASUS products. If you have a defective unit, good luck in getting it up and running again. Their RMA and CUSTOMER support is completely the worst I've seen.
