Was a great motherboard until the sata port died. Still worth a look.

Bob Smith "Bob", Amazon

  • Summary: After owning this motherboard for a year or so, I still like it, but it does have it's issues. Pros: 1. Great for overclocking. 2. Good compatibility with a large variety of memory modules. 3. The dust covers are a nice touch. 4. The spacing for a large video card is JUST right. Cons: 1. One of the main sata ports died within the first year or so. Not very good quality. 2.

Mobo fans

  • Summary: The 35mm fans sound like crap after a year ... drives us nuts with noise. I pulled them out and put a couple of 120's in to increase bottom to top airflow. Otherwise mobo has been good.

Good Motherboard, HORRIBLE service

Derek B. Francis, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: Bought this motherboard for a home server build. Worked like a charm until something went wrong with it. Now it power cycles about 4 seconds after startup in an endless loop. Thought sending it back to ASUS would get it fixed but VERY wrong. Their group said they fixed it 3 times (yes, I sent it off 3 different times due to the same (broken) motherboard would be returned).

Five Star MB with One Star Support

Uptime Service, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used quite a few of the Asus Sabertooth motherboards and like them a lot. Very rugged, good looking plus how can you go wrong with a five year warranty? Only had one major issue (out of about 12 builds using this board) - a defective PCIe 3.0 slot on one that caused boot issues and crashes.

DOA

Steve Williams, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I received mine DOA. So, why give it 3 stars? It is an excellent board. I have helped 2 friends build with this board and it is feature packed and of good quality. I just drew the short straw this time. When you build as many computers as me, you learn that is part of the game. If you buy enough components, you will get a bad one occasionally. But, that has no bearing on the value and quality of the board itself.

Made a video of the unboxing and was glad I did.

V. L., Amazon

  • Summary: Was very excited about buying this board. Heard a lot of good things about it. Figured you can't go wrong with a board that has a 5 year warranty. I also read about people receiving this board and right of of the box, the pins were bent. But, it seemed to be a rare occurrence overall.

Be careful of BIOS version 1206 and 1304, use 1708 or later

D. Coral, Amazon
10 June 2012
  • Summary: Update: BIOS v.1708 works without the VGA LED error, finally this Asus bug is fixed! Update: Asus responded to try the newest BIOS v.1304, but that resulted in the same failure to start with the VGA LED. I have an Asus EAH6850 video card and it is odd that Asus can't make their BIOS updates work with their own Asus branded card. I flashed back to BIOS v.1015 and only that version works to bring the PC back to life.
