  • Summary: Mixed bag for me here. The motherboard worked great for the first year. After that it would start back up on its own when i shut it down, and would only start one in five times when I was trying to turn it on via the power button. Through trial and error I replaced the CPU, PSU, Memory and Case.

Solid build but Two RMA's were enough.

  • Summary: Between the two broken BIOS clocks and the above mentioned issues with the plastic coverings I requested refund so i could get a different board. So for the second time I'm out of my computer for a week or two as Newegg refuses to cross ship. (despite broken clock it worked fine otherwise).
  • Pros: -Very Solid build with back plating. This is a metal plate that covers most of the back of the board and makes it feel sturdy. -Lots of connections (USB/SATA and such) -When used with ASUS Thermal radar, the prodigious number of temperature sensors make detailed system control a snap. (you can cu...
  • Cons: -While it is billed as being "dust defender" and "thermal armor", i have to ask these questions. How does covering and sealing the board in a plastic shield lower temperatures? How does said covering protect from dust? In other words, how does the cover not just trap warm air near the board, and ...

  • Excerpt: Мат плата достаточно удобна, широкие настройки в биосе для разгона, контроль скорости вентиляторов по напряжения, защита кожухом от пыли. достаточное расстояние от слота для видеокарты, для установки большого процессорного куллера. Но все перечеркивает брак.
  • Pros: Настроики в биосе, фан контроль, защита мат платы и разьемов
  • Cons: Брак таймера в Биосе. Несовместимость с блоком питания Enermax
