UPDATING BIOS IS REQUIRED AND NOT EASY UNLESS YOU KNOW HOW

TWATripp "twatripp", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: BIOS update IS required before using the I5 processors. It is not straightforward and it took me several hours to figure it out. First - you can install the processor and it will boot to BIOS, but it will not install windows. Here's what to do.

Brian, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Good feature set, good price point. A friend uses this as well and likes its performance. Cons: First motherboard was dead on arrival, it showed power on the power indicator, but never budged a fan or went to POST. I am awaiting a replacement.

ASUS AND THE GOLDEN MOTHERBOARD

Jared, Amazon
5 June 2015
  • Summary: If their was one negative thing about this board it would be the fact that ASUS has an obsession with gold,you would think they were apple or something. LOL Jokes aside it is a great board that has plenty of SATA ports and plenty of USB ports.

DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT

Jon Harshbarger, Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: This product came to me with just the mother board and it refused to boot (turn on). I could not even get it to go to bios. The cpu red light just stayed on, and after help from a millitary computer expert, he said it was the motherboard to blame. I hope my refund is approved.

Meh

Phil, Amazon
19 May 2015
  • Summary: I keep hearing how Asus makes great products, but this is my third major problem with Asus. This motherboard kept creating blue screen errors. It was also very difficult to resolve some driver issues. Their website support is not the greatest.

Good

Gene, Amazon
12 April 2015
  • Summary: It was ok, I had some problems in the beginning though. The audio wasn't working, but after tweaking the audio settings, I managed to fix it. The LED's are very helpful, when I was trying to boot the computer, it was easy to tell if It was powering or starting up.
