Can cram a lot into Micro-ATX with this board

 

I needed to cram a lot of computing power into a small desk space. After failing to make a full size ATX system work in a small case, I had to go Micro-ATX while still supporting seven SATA devices, Firewire, a GTX 760 graphics card, and a regular PCIe...

Windows 10 support practically out of the box. Good drop-in replacement for Z87 or later chipset boards. Loads of SATA connectors, and supports RAID arrays from other Intel RST-based boards ; Contrary to an answer to a question posted here, yes, an...

Mini-PCIe slot has no mounting bracket for cards and may not have worked with a mini-PCIe to Firewire card I bought ; A simple 'stable, no overclocking' option was missing; it defaulted to 'turbo' mode for my processor, and the auto-tuning application...

*PLEASE READ*

 

Solid board with a minor manufacturing defect. It happens.

I have been building gaming computers for over 15 years. I wanted to build my first micro ATX rig, and chose this motherboard because I like ASUS quality. Long story short, I put 16 GB of fast, good quality RAM in the board (I won't mention the brand...

If you are having memory troubles, examine the CPU interface and make sure no pins are bent. One bent pin can make your entire rig not work, and it is faster to fix yourself than an RMA, if you know what you are doing. If you are not familiar with...

minor annoyances

 

I haven't tested all the features or used the onboard audio so far, but this seems like a solid product. I hope asus can add more temp sensors for future iterations of this series.

Easy to use bios with ability to adjust numerous esoteric values ; Bios is regularly updated ; Intel Nic ; Beefy vrm heatsink ; Premium looking io shield

I do not trust asus warranty support at all after reading stories online. It is disturbing to know in the back of your mind there is a chance you will get a nightmarish experience if you do have to use the warranty service ; Temperature monitor probes...

Super unprofessional customer support

 

I like ASUS products, I still do, and I also have confidence that not all representatives are so low level. But with over one hour of time wasted with some guy from asus, I can't and won't give this more stars. ASUS, check the recorded phone call see...

Great and super smooth while it's working ; Of Why I rated one egg, please read on

Purchased on the beginning of May this year, after two month, it suddenly not working, I have tried unplug all the unnecessary components leave only CPU and one stick of RAM. The start led light up, but Q code is not. CPU fan and other fans not...
