WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER ASUS PRODUCT AGAIN! NOTE: 5 EGGS FOR NEWEGG AS ALWAYS, NOT THEIR FAULT!!!

thomas m., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: No i don' recommend this product
  • Pros: fast shipping from newegg
  • Cons: ASUS Support is ridiculous. This board has known issues with it detecting multiple keyboards and mice when only having 1 each connected however, no bios fix for this. according to ASUS, we are just supposed to deal with it as it doesn't really affect anything. ok yes i can agree to that however t...

Defective board out of the box

Evangelos T., Newegg
23 June 2015
  • Pros: Can't say anything since i wasn't even able to make it work, looks nice thought. Newegg told me they would send me a new one, that's a positive even though it was inconvenient to take everything apart and ship it back.
  • Cons: The board was defective out of the box, had to return it for an exchange.

ASUS DRM driven motherboard

John H., Newegg
15 May 2015
  • Summary: As soon as the new non-ASUS board arrived and was installed I no longer had any of the DRM issues I was having before. I threw the old ASUS board in trash when I found it was the problem. I have been buying/using ASUS mother boards since 1995 and have never had a complaint until now.
  • Pros: Motherboard has lasted over 3 years, easy to over clock, nice suite of options, good performance
  • Cons: BD Audio Layer Content Protection, also known as Cinavia, is built into the heart of this motherboard. What that means is that let's say you just bought Avengers on BluRay and archived it to your PC so you don't risk scratching the disk and can stream it to your home network for every TV in your ...

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.

works fine til u need to rma it

douglas f., Newegg
23 March 2015
  • Summary: i just wish corsair made motherboards...at least with them u get free replacement. i was nearly broke after saving up my money to build a system i was hoping it was to last 5yrs at least. now i had to borrow money to find an alternate brand of motherboard.
  • Pros: decent speedy motherboard, hyperduo works like a charm holds 64gig quad channel memory just fine.
  • Cons: but if u plug in a 2.1 TB hd or larger into the marvel sata 2.0 ports..the motherboard may die on u, it happened to me. rma service is a joke, they misplaced it for 2 weeks, had "worked" on it for 2 weeks. then returned with damaged cpu socket pins and voided my 5yr warranty after 1.2yrs of usage...

"5 Year Warranty" Is Useless, Buyer BEWARE

Timothy B., Newegg
16 January 2015
  • Summary: I got this mobo 2 years ago and had absolutely no problems with it. A few weeks ago, Windows installed some updates and wanted to restart. I restarted my computer and I got no video to my monitor. After much troubleshooting, I found out it was the mobo that was causing the issue.
  • Pros: Excellent mobo when it was working.
  • Cons: ASUS's warranty is useless.

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...

Won't touch this - thanks Mark

Seth B., Newegg
23 November 2014
  • Pros: I WAS an ASUS fanboy and have thrown literally thousands of dollars there way both personally and professionally. (I've worked in tech in education for nearly 20 years.)
  • Cons: but I will not purchase a product with drm or that has decided what kind of media I can or can't use. This is like net neutrality for hardware.

Board had problems. Only got worse

Sarah H., Newegg
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I used to be really loyal to Asus, but this board and the support team completely turned me off.
  • Pros: Neat BIOS interface.
  • Cons: Wouldn't see all 4 sticks of ram no matter how I mixed/configured them it would only see 3. Didn't matter which 3, all sticks worked, but the 4th one would sometimes show in BIOS, sometimes it wouldn't. RAID controller randomly forgot about 4th drive and then on reboot would see again triggering ...
