Terrible Board

Bryan B., Newegg
26 June 2015
  • Summary: Asus has the worse Technical support. They are Naive.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Terrible Sata controller, Bus from GPU to Memory is terribly slow. This workstation board runs slower than my 600 dollar i5 dell with windows 7. I ordered 3 of these boards for rendering both 3D and Open GL 4.0. Absolutely terrible. Even at 8.0 GT/s... never using ASUS again. wasted $2000

DOA

theodore d., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: This board was 100% DOA on arrival. I was forced to pay shipping both ways, which seems unfair. Afterwards, I purchased an Asrock EP2C602-4L/D16, which has better features for a far lower price, and it worked perfectly right out of the box.
  • Pros: Good feature set Supports ES chips on older bios versions
  • Cons: DOA board Paid shipping both ways for defunct product Very pricey

Doesn't work with UEFI, numerous problems with setup (0E, 0D errors)

DAVE M., Newegg
21 July 2014
  • Pros: Could be a great board and a supreme dual-CPU board for desktop, but has an incredibly bad BIOS and options for UEFI support.
  • Cons: May seem to be a great board, and I can make it work, but purports to be a UEFI supporting board and its support and BIOS are awful. With the latest BIOS, using approved processors and RAM (from the approved vendor list) and an ASUS video card also with its latest upgrades, the board loses its ab...

DO NOT USE THIS FOR CRITICAL SYSTEMS

ISAAC J., Newegg
14 April 2014
  • Summary: Do not buy this motherboard. The support of a server board is just as important as the board itself. ASUS' support is the worst I've ever dealt with. I am rebuilding this machine around a different board.
  • Pros: This board worked for about 13 months.
  • Cons: The board died 30 days after their Rapid Replacement policy ended. ASUS does NOT care about their customers. They would NOT issue me a new board in under 2 weeks. They did not understand that this machine was not my son's game console. This is a server board and was purchased by a business counti...

Solid, Stable, Fast

Kyle G., Newegg
5 April 2014
  • Summary: Use this Memory for this board: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBZL I see people complaining and writing bad reviews, this will save you the trouble they had
  • Pros: Was the smoothest computer building experience I ever had! Absolutely no problems. I just stuck all the parts together, turned it on and now I am in business. Loaded it with: 2 Xeon e5-2680 v2 (10 core @ 2.80ghz) 32 GB of g.skill (See other thoughts below) Samsung 250 GB SSD 1 EVGA GTX 780 Ti Cor...
  • Cons: Not even one. No BSODs, or Issues whatsoever. Everything worked and quite frankly It was the smoothest computer building experience anyone could ever hope for.

Great board, not for novices

Nick G., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Summary: This is now my 4th build using this board. I have not had any problems with any of the boards I own. The latest configuration has 256GB of DDR3 1600 Samsung memory, dual 2697 v2's, 1 Quaddro card, and 3 Tesla cards.
  • Pros: This is a great board for both desktop, workstation, and server users. It allows up to 256GB of memory, way more than what most people could ever use. 4 way SLI / crossfire support, dual xeons.
  • Cons: Expensive, could use more ram slots (other companies with dual cpu boards often have 16 slots). Needs a lot of power.

Excellent board

Matthew M., Newegg
15 March 2014
  • Pros: Dual socket LGA 2011 board. Expansion to the moon if you wish. More bells and whistles then any would actually use.
  • Cons: Not for the novice. If you are looking at this and wondering why you need it, then you don't. Save your money and time and look elsewhere.
