ASUS - bC Error - undocumented

Joseph D., Newegg
25 May 2014
  • Summary: When two Intel Xeon CPU's are installed with non-ECC RAM the system will not boot. If only one Intel Xeon is installed in CPU slot 1 with Non-ECC RAM, the system will boot up.
  • Pros: None at this time - Can't recommend this board
  • Cons: Won't boot on dual Xeon CPU's.

DOA

Daniel B., Newegg

  • Summary: I didn't bother calling support, after narrowing the possibilities down to the motherboard without any changes in error, I simply sent it back for a refund, which was approved with little effort.
  • Pros: features
  • Cons: couldn't get the device past Q-code 06, partnered with POST code beeps (one long, 2 short).

Great board, great price

Christopher O., Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought this to use as a workstation rather than a server. I didn't need multiple graphics cards, 8 dimm slots was plenty, and the ATX form factor made finding a suitable case much easier.
  • Pros: Inexpensive for a dual LGA 2011 board.
  • Cons: None that I can think of. A few more USB ports would be nice, but as this IS a server board, they're not really needed.

officially been scammed

William C., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I finally gave up on dealing with ASUS. I got my first RMA back from ASUS giving me qcode-00 and no pre-post, no different than the way I sent it to them. After ASUS wasted weeks of my time back in fourth blaming all the other components in the system I bit the bullet and bought a second Z9PA-D8 from Newegg. It pre-posted just fine running down the q-codes like it should. Really ASUS? Way to take care of your customers.
  • Pros: nothing
  • Cons: the is one of the only boards with these features in an atx size

Nice board when it works

Kathleen H., Newegg
5 March 2013
  • Summary: The cpu sockets are located too closely so I had to change my initial intel cpu cooler to an evercool (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835119169).
  • Pros: Decent board for the price. Plenty of upgrade potential with memory capacity and hard drive capacity. Also, supported WIN 2012 out of the box.
  • Cons: A little lengthy for a standard ATX 2U chassis so I went with a 4U (I used Logisys because that's what was available locally but probably could have found a better fit online). I ordered 2 boards. One is running like a champ for 3 weeks but the other is on its second replacement. This is the reason for 3 stars.-
