Good Mobo pain to get working

Gene P., Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Summary: Other thoughts to my cons was if you like the board get it. I sure hope you don't have as bad of a time I did. But it sure is a nice board for a great price. When it's up and running it's seamless too. One other con is this board is very cluttered.
  • Pros: This motherboard works seamlessly once you get it setup and running good. - Great price for Dual socket
  • Cons: This is why I gave it -2 eggs. The first motherboard I got from newegg was not registering 2 of the dimms. It was suppose to read 12 gigs of ram and it only read 8. Moving them around did not change anything. So I RMA it and get a new one from newegg. I thought I was home free. I guess not.I get ...

Jocelyn S., Newegg
26 September 2009
  • Summary: Does anyone know where I can find a MIO audio card so I can free the pci card to add a working NIC?
  • Pros: Fast and affordable.
  • Cons: Not a lot of space and not a lot of connectivity. I had big problems woth the onboard network card and there is no PCI-1x slot (only a MIO audio card slot for an audio card that I can't find anywhere and it looks exactly like a pci-1x slot but the manual says it is compatible. The ram is stuck be...

  • Summary: Our machines are used for extremely large graphic design. We always add a 512mb or larger display adapter, while we always used on-board sound. While we understand that many servers only require minimal display capabilities instead of sound, it would be nice if ASUS left the standard on-board sound...
  • Pros: Price! Asus!
  • Cons: No PCI-X, no on-board sound. This board is classified as a server board yet it seems geared towards the gaming crowd. The only correlation to a server is that it can accept Xeon processors. There are many commercial applications where PCI-X cards are still in use such as SCSI u320 RAID. It seems ...

unstable

Ahammed H., Newegg
17 June 2009
  • Pros: ATX form factor
  • Cons: Unstable at full speed CSI(5.6GT/s) had to lower to 4.8 which has caused the system to slow down. Northbridge gets really hot and is half under my 2 slot video card. Too many things to squeeze into ATX form factor. No audio

Cramped!

John S., Newegg
11 June 2009
  • Summary: I ended up returning this board due to the tight, tight, TIGHT CPU configuration - I had a fairly reasonable sized (e.g., small) heatsink/fan that I couldn't install largely because it was actually pressing against the RAM... so I'm going with an SSI EEB board from Tyan.
  • Pros: *It's an ATX board and will indeed fit in an ATX case *ICH10R southbridge gives you a RAID option if you don't want to shell out for the Z8N-D6
  • Cons: *No sound (as it tells you) *INCREDIBLY tight fit for installing CPU heatsinks
