I purchased this Mainboard with Building a reasonable upper middle range computer in mind without busting out too much $$ for it.

This Mainboard is Awesome, More of a Mainboard than I expected for the money, it performs perfectly, overclocks and runs smooth with no system hang ups and has great bells and whistles like the WIFI and Bluetooth that at first I figured ya ya ok neat I'll never use em ..... well I now have it configured to update my Ipad,Itouch,Smart phone and Mac book Pro to auto transfer files to and from them and control my sound system in the house .... it is a private well behaved Cloud system.

Ok so I installed the Intel extreme - i7-3960X LGA2011 Processor along with 16 Gig of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory and running it on Windows 7 Ultimate all this went into a Cooler Master 932 HAF full tower case being powered by the Corsair HX1050 Power Supply and the Processor is being cooled with a Corsair H100 Liquid cooler.

Cons? becareful once you start a build like this it will be hard to stop.

I built recently a system using this motherboard. I haven't had issues with the dimms like many other people do, but the issues I currently have are regarding the USB 3.0 ports. This board uses the Asmedia 1042 and VL810 chipsets for it's USB 3.0 ports, right now both chipsets have many problems, a good example is that when reading data through the USB 3.0 it works perfectly fine. The problem comes when you want to write data (transfering data to a External Hard Drive or HDD Dock using USB 3.0), basically after minutes the PC hangs and the USB 3.0 devices get undetected. After searching a lot it seems that it is a common problem with the Asmedia 1042.

If you plan on using your USB 3.0 ports to transfer data, then either search for a motherboard that doesn't have the asmedia chipset or consider going to lga 1155 with the Z77 that has usb 3.0 chipset done by intel.

I'm pretty disappointed that the USB 3.0 ports of my x58 motherboard work better than the ones on this x79 motherboard.

With luck Asus will release updates of the firmware of the chipset and drivers so the port get to actually work as intended. The board was released on November of 2011 and Asus hasn't released a fix yet...

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

This motherboard is capable of USB 3.0 Turbo and UASP modes which can significantly improve transfer rates. Can you try using AI Suite and set USB 3.0 Boost to Normal mode to see if the external drive / lock continues to hang on transferring data? We haven't had heard reports of problems of the Asmedia 1042 controller. Can you email me about them at cl-benson@asus.com? Thank you.

I never thought I'd have to troubleshoot memory as much as I did with this board. I'm just a humanities professor trying to future proof a system with as much RAM as possible for editing and transcoding HD Videos from my 1080p/60 camera. Bought this with an Intel 3930K and Vengeance and Komputerbay memory modules, also other banks from working machines.

I googled extensively, and learned a lot more than I was willing to do to make 64GB, then 32GB work with this board. Basically some memory banks are faulty. You can't just follow the recommended banks to populate them.

In my case, the only way to use 32GB was to populate B1,B2 and D1,D2 banks. And then only boots at 800GHZ, not 1600. It overclocks easily to 4.1/3.9, you choose, but memory gets underclocked heavily, or it won't boot.

Also the memory banks A1 and A2 simply won't work for me. They worked at first, but even after resetting bios, clearing CMOS, they stopped doing that.

I googled too much and wasted too much time trying to make this work. First I got disappointed with my Transformer Prime, now this. Asus, please, get your act together. I spent hours on this, it's a lot of money, plus the hassle of returning this.

Note that 4, 8, even 16GB works fine (as long as you don't use a1 and a2...). Asus QVL list doesn't list a single bank vendor capable of filling all slots, so THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS. They test with 2 and 4GB banks mostly, you don't see QVL with fast 8GB banks each: you see only Corsair with 4GB modules qualified for 16GB max - WHY? Go ahead and see for yourself on the ASUS website/manual.

But why would you buy this board if that's all you really need/want?

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issue you had with the motherboard.

We recommend using modules from single manufacturer and matching part no. and specs for best compatibility. On our memory QVL, we have ADATA SU3U1333W8G9-B and Samsung M378B1G73AH0-CH9 that we've tested and are known to work on this motherboard (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_2011/P9X79_DELUXE/#MSL).

To run 4x8GB (32GB) memory, please install memory in A1, B1, C1, and D1 for dual channel configuration. Try swapping memory in these slots. If you believe that A1 and A2 slots are defective, please consider RMA the motherboard by completing the form at http://vip.asus.com/eservice/usa_rmaserv.aspx or call 1-812-282-2787.

My Bluetooth and WiFi module is not functioning as it is designed but realized that the ASUS Customer support is the worst thing you can have in this world. After opening the case, they should have sent me the forms for XShip (meaning they send me the replacement motherboard and I will send mine back when I received the replacement) but even though I waited a week it never happened. I then emailed to the support and then they emailed me the forms. I filled in the credit card information and faxed them back on the same day but no news for another week. I then sent another email and got the response with new revision 2.1 forms. Why in the world they sent me the wrong forms in first place and why this process is taking so long? Because I paid lot of my hard earned money behind a reputed brand motherboard and now when I am in trouble that reputed brand is just ignoring my problem and trying to get away?
Alright, I then faxed the revision 2.1 forms back and after a week I get the email from the same guy asking whether or not I have faxed the new forms back or not!

This was my first purchase of ASUS brand. I was about to buy Gigabyte MB but thought ASUS is better than Gigabyte but not anymore, both the product and customer support. Right now I talking to David from support over the phone, he took my RMA and went to check the status. What is the world is this? Is this really a tech company? To check the status of the RMA, he has to put me on hold to check the paper work or something? I don't get this all..

So beware, when you buy anything from ASUS and you have to use their customer support then be ready to face the delays. By the time they process your RMA your product will be out of warranty!
