Stopped working after two weeks.

Eric B., Newegg
23 February 2016
  • Summary: - I didn't have time to really work on it for about 7 months and ended up swapping it out for an MSI board I had purchased previously and all my components work great. - I have always loved ASUS products and was excited to get a high end ASUS board but it just wouldn't work.
  • Pros: I liked the look, assembled well.
  • Cons: - Ran for about 2 weeks then stopped booting up, no lights or anything. Tried everything I could think of to get it to cycle but never worked.

Terrible Customer Service

Kutter R., Newegg
15 January 2015
  • Pros: Nice specs on paper
  • Cons: Asus Customer Service and issues with support. This model board has an issue with Power Supplies. Asus refuses to attempt to duplicate the problem. The issue is with power supply specifications. According to Asus, this board will work with a version 2.1 or higher power supply. What I have found i...

ASUS Bad RMA Service

Darryl A., Newegg
4 August 2014
  • Pros: Good product if it works for you
  • Cons: Awful support. I had a problem with my ASUS Z87 Sabertooth motherboard and went through the horror of ASUS advance RMA service. I filled out the first batch of forms, sent them in and got an acceptance email. I had to call 5 different rep's to find out what was taking so long to get the board shi...

  • Pros: At this point none.
  • Cons: This is a follow up on an earlier review. Initially I had issues with the AI suite III and mobo software issues. More recently started getting blue screens and was forced to go in to the bios and disable all the memory bells and whistles. This curred the blue screeds for about a week. All seems o...

  • Summary: I do want to keep an open mind about this board, because I have friends that have this board and rave about it, and I know their expertise about computers and hardware, as they all have theirs overclocked at 4.0+, perhaps I just got a bad board, hopefully I will have some good news from ASUS soon
  • Pros: thermal armor, very ridged board, added fans for air circulation
  • Cons: I have built 75-80 systems and never had happen to me, what happen with this board, I installed the cpu and fan, the two fans that come with the board and memory, I installed the first video card into the first PCIe slot and tried to install the second video card into the second PCIe slot, the vi...

  • Pros: sturdy construction
  • Cons: horrible software glitches in proprietary AI suite III software which is supposed to give you easy access to motherboard settings including thermal radar and fan management. If you buy this board do not, I repeat DO NOT install the AI suite III, as running the thermal radar and thermal optimizati...

unstable

James F., Newegg
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Should not have been released.
  • Pros: Good layout. Good instructions, Excellent features. If you can get it to work, it is really fast.
  • Cons: If you like the blue screen of death you will love this motherboard. They are random and Microsoft provides no help. Usually they cannot be cured with a restart. The clock does not work - shuts off when not actually in the operating system. Has problems recognizing mice and keyboards after booting.
