quad channel ram. I'm not sure if it was that or the cpu that saved my gtx 680 from getting sold, but it runs like a champ now. Either way it was definitely the AMD processors (fx8150 btw) and motherboards that were holding back the graphics capability of a slightly aged gtx 680. Don't get me wrong though, AMD has the best bang for the buck. AMD is fine if you're not nit picky about having the best graphics and fastest everything.
The UEFI bios is pretty cool, still confusing for someone like me though.
The design is pretty awesome, I like that assistant fan.
It took me literally 2 days to get this mobo up and running correctly. Ok, I was actually went to work and slept too. No showers though :p
Why did it take me that long? Well firstly I was admiring it for a few hours. After that, I installed it, and it was a perfect fit inside my case.
-The 'ez bios' is a pain in the rear since there's no sticker indicating the installed bios ver. You have to actually boot up to figure out what you got, and to do that, you gotta hook it up, not as ez as advertised (or maybe lazy in my case). Okay I didn't wanna hook it up so I just stuck in a cap file. Didn't work, stuck in rom file. That didn't work either. Renamed the cap file, it worked. Didn't bother to check bios version at all :D
-This mobo is like a high maintenance woman, very picky and demanding. Took me the whole day to fix the 'cpu fan error' oh my god. other mobos never had that problem. I see the fan is running fine, but still CPU ERROR OMGORZ!! I unplugged everything, and tried 1 fan at a time. Each one is CPU FAN ERROR. now I know all the fans run fine and they can't all go bad at the same time. I plugged every fan into every cpu/cha slot in all the combinations, didn't fix it. I thought it finally fixed itself. But that was only one boot. The next boot, CPU FAN ERROR again. Anyway I don't know what I did, but the problem fixed itself and I hope it stays that way. Maybe it was because it liked me talking dirty to it. There should be a 'ignore cpu fan error, biach' option in the bios.
-Now my next challenge is getting that 1866 ram to actually run at 1866 instead of 1600. Probably going to take another day.
-only has 6 sata ports, but good thing I got some pcie controllers lying around.
Other thoughts: Its working fine now, I hope I won't have any issues. I'm an asus fanboy and I love their products. I got an asus 3d vision 2 monitor, an asus netbook, obviously an asus mobo, asus router, asus headphones, and most of my past computer parts always consisted of asus.
I've had no heating problems, it took all eight sticks of RAM like a champ, the USB 3.0 works like a charm, it took my GTX660Ti graphics card with no problems. I'm definitely satisfied with my purchase. If you're not looking to use all 8 slots of RAM or you don't need the USB 3.0 but you're STILL determined to have an i7 processor, there are plenty of cheaper motherboards to suit your needs. Otherwise, this motherboard will take whatever you throw at it.
One other thing that I almost forgot is that this board has a Realtek soundcard built in. It doesn't play with 4 pin headsets on a cable splitter unless you uninstall the Realtek driver and use that base microsoft driver. Now that windows 10 bullies you into using the realtek driver, you will need to add a soundcard if you want to use a 4 pin headset.
I am using the board as it came out of the box with an i7 3930 CPU.
I was a little disappointed that it did not have a 1394 connection for the input for the front panel on the case. I also needed to get an adapter for the 2 USB3 connectors on the front panel to enable them to connect to the board. Although there is an input connector for a system speaker for warning beeps, the attachment did not come with the board or the case. I purchased that for a couple of dollars from a third party.
I found the user manual a bit difficult to comprehend regarding the BIOS settings and needed to get assistance from tech support - which was superb.
Regarding installation, the user manual was great.
I would recommend this motherboard to others.
