Price History (Excluding Tax & Combo Deals) History:


This board was only intended for the Optical out. Everything else on it was a bonus. The reason why I chose is only I support Asus and their products. So far im happy with this mobo....OH and I must say the BIOS is great for OC VERY user friendly!!!!

from completed build First Build (aka Broseph Stalin)

Has pretty much everything I need on it. Didn't want to go with a cheap-o mobo, and wanted a full size one as well. No issues so far.

from completed build Ripley

It worked right off the bat. I appreciate having a power button so I could test bench my system. The BIOS is easy to use.

from completed build R5 Define asus

Best motherboard at its price range. Wish however the build quality and robustness was better.

I'll admit I always have the second thought that I've spent too much on this board and that it's overkill for my setup, but it's a really nice board with lots of features.

from completed build The Thing (aka "PCH")

Scouted around for good deal, managed to find a bundle with this mobo, i7-4790k and the WD 7200 Blue and figured why not. Also, I read that this is a decent board to get some over clocking on. Plus its got the Easy OC feature to allow me to auto overclock, and as i haven't OC'd before i thought it would be worth a shot. Only down side to the whole build was the ASUS mobo has a CPU_opt and cpu_fan header. The cpu_opt doesn't allow for control via bios. Doing some research people had mixed opinions on whether the CPU_Opt runs at same voltage as the cpu_fan. So i ended up taking the pump and placing it into a different chassis fan control and set it to max and direct current. I wanted to make sure the pump was @ full power at all times ad that the 2 fans on he Rad could be controlled based on heat.

from completed build Quiet SLI Ready Gaming

Zero problems with this board so far. It has everything I need and nothing I don't. Able to get a 16% overclock on my i7-4790k.

from completed build Perfect Storm

Works fine. Bios is tricky for a first time builder

Great Mobo, has everything I needed plus much more, bois is great, not much more I can say!

from completed build Black/Gold Devil's Canyon 970

Really great board all around, can't go wrong with Asus quality. Have everything you need for a normal build, and more. The only complain I have is for the I/O shield which is plain silver and feels a bit weak and cheap.
