The long story:
My motherboard failed (it no longer went to post when providing power) just barely outside of the return window with Amazon - a little over 30 days of moderate use. I had to initiate an RMA with ASUS to warranty the product. The process works like this: You send the board to a repair center in Indiana, a technician runs diagnostics to see if it can be fixed, and is then either repaired or replaced with a "recertified" (refurbished) replacement to return back to you.
I had to ship the motherboard at my own cost - about $20. It arrived about 5 business days later, and within a few business days upon receipt of the board, the repair status updated in the 'repair status' window of the RMA online tracker that the repair center was waiting on replacement parts. After about 8 business days upon their receipt of my motherboard I was notified a replacement was shipped. 5 business days later I received the "recertified" board.
I want to note that ASUS assures customers that their recertified product is not the same as what other companies might call refurbished. To become an ASUS recertified product, the repaired devices require extensive testing and quality control checks before they are sent to the customer.
I received a motherboard from the ASUS RMA center completely missing the on board WiFi/Bluetooth module. It's a component that is emphasized in the product's included features. Instead, where the WiFi hub should have been, was an empty PCI-e port. I called the repair team and went through three tiers of technical support explaining how ASUS sent me an even more defective product. I was told that I had to initiate a new RMA, and was given an expedited shipping label as compensation for my inconvenience (after I demanded for one). They still refused to send me a new in box product. I asked for an advanced replacement (a ready to ship "recertified" board at the warehouse) but they had no stock to do so.
I asked to be escalated to a higher level supervisor. I spoke to someone who was clearly in the United States (I'm not so sure everyone else I spoke with previously was, even though ASUS claims their customer support line is based in Indiana). We had a very professional and polite conversation. She explained that despite all of ASUS' failures, she had no ability to compensate me with a new in box motherboard. She mentioned that it is not until the *second* time you are given a replacement board from the RMA center that the company can consider a new in box replacement. She was "very surprised" of everything that had happened to me, but also seemed all too familiar with customers having issues with repairs...
I once more shipped a defective product back to the repair center in Indiana. Two business days transpired. While at work I received two emails from the courier notifying me that the repair center rejected my package with the reason being that the business was not open. I called the customer service team and again had to go through three tiers of technicians to determine that the agent who drafted my shipping label provided an address missing pertinent information. They offered to contact courier to update them with the correct address. I said, "Thanks but no thanks - I'll do it myself".
As of this review I'm one month into, now, my second RMA for a product failure I had no control over. ASUS customer service is so embarrassing that it has broken my trust with the company. I have happily used their products for over 15 years, and sought out their product over any other. Now that I have had this experience, and seen their apparent disinterest in keeping my brand loyalty, I see no reason to champion them over the myriad of other attractive options in the future.
My MoBo would light up, fans would come on, and that was it(aside from the HDD humming a bit) and no visuals from hdmi, display port, or vga( had a 1080 hooked up) tried both integrated graphics and the 1080s options. I found a bunch of articles saying try unplugging everything EXCEPT the MoBo power supply, cpu power supply, and cpu fan. WELL... that didn't work. on to the next test.
I hooked the MoBo up to my wifes desktop power supply(an evga 750W) still same results. Hooked up my psu to her desktop and it fired right up. So no issues there(Mine is a "Beast 700w" or somehting like that)
Well finally after several hours of unhooked rehooking, trying everything i found on the webz. I finally came across an article that said a kid had dead ram slots. saying the LED on built onto the board was constantly lit, meaning there was an issue with ram. Well sure enough, i turned mine on, and there it was just as ORANGE as you please bright as the sun. I have ordered a new one and requested a return label for the old. I will update this review if the new one performs well, But for now i have to give this a one star for D.O.A. Sorry Asus
So after getting the new motherboard in, all I really had to do was plug in the cpu, ram and cables. It fired right up. I'm guessing the other was just defective as I assumed. Now that that is over. I can give a quick rundown of my first impressions. The RGB on the shroud is very nice, not too bright so no complaints there. All of the components on my case( the Cougar Evolution) plugged right into to it and work properly including the top fan control. POST took no time at all, installed windows 10 using USB drive and was up and running in a matter of 15 minutes. I'm really impressed with this board so far.

A couple of minor flaws - the ISU (the part that fits over the rear ports, has a minor flaw - the USB-C connection slot is to small, in that there isn't a enough room for the cable plastic surround on the cable - which means you can't connect a USB-C Cable, without trimming this ASUS cut out - which I only discovered after building the entire PC = very fiddly.
The front USB-C motherboard connection slot, is unique, some cases advertise as having a front USB-C Port on their case but I have found some are wired, to be connected to the standard USB 3 port on a motherboard. Something to bear in mind when buying the computer case - not sure if this is an Asus or Computer case manufactures problem.
Build quality is very good and I updated the BIOS to the latest version, early on in my build and didn't experience any build issues.
Overall very impressed - the minor flaws mean its gets 4 stars from me.
Aesthetics.. lacking. could have used another LED board for RGB aura near where the M2 slots located or adjacent to the PCI-e. RGB aura does work well with it though and the LED located on the i/o cover is very noticeable and pretty.
installation, easy BUT.. time and time again with ASUS the actual screws for the board that mount it are poorly threaded. GET SOME BETTER SCREWS!!
BIOS. this has the ROG EZBIOS and it is extremely easy to use. the overclocking features and AI tweaker are very user friendly but if you have no idea of their contents then i wouldnt recommend using the 5ghz overlock feature just because its there... unless you want to burn out your rig.
The EZFlash utility makes BIOS flashing super easy which leads me to next..
Support.. its OKAY.. but if you have no idea between the difference between.cap and.rom files then ASUS and the BIOS support page do little to help you, but this isnt a reflection on the board itself which as mentioned, is extremely easy to get along with.
