Edited Review: Awesome Mobo WHEN IT WORKS
6 August 2017
I would have gave it 5 stars but one usb port is randomly not working. When i use my mouse on the usb 3.0 port next to the Ethernet port the mouse behaves extremely sluggish and slow like a game running a very low fps. I have tried other mouses and does the same thing. Strange thing is the other port next to it and the remaining usb ports work fine. I contacted asus they stated its the port itself, i contacted amazon spoke to a very nice lady whom sent me another board. Hopefully this will work, and will give another review, overall the performance on this board is awesome, looks great additionally the AI Suite 3 that comes with the motherboard does not work as attended the ram information within the software throws a error and this is known bug with asus. Overall happy with this board shame that usb port does not function as intended since the usb ports on this board are very limited, if this board had around 8 or 10 usb ports I would not have really bothered but since it has only 5 ports and one does not work as it should has annoyed me.
Edit: Received my replacement only for the same issue. I do not understand how two motherboards can have the same issue. It makes no sense. Third time lucky I hope, Amazon should really check the batch of these motherboards
EDIT: The third board works great no issues so far everything is running perfectly. No idea why the other 2 boards had these issues strange really to think two boards with the exact same issue. Anyways works great, looks great and functions well.
EDIT: 7 around 7 months later I started developing a issue with this board, this is my 4th BOARD!!!! ASUS WTF. I do not install dodgy or bloatware on my machine this pc is strictly for gaming NO DOWNLOADS FROM BROWSER unless it be from a KNOWN WEBSITE SUCH AS AVAST, ASUS, CORSAIR, NVIDIA ECT.... This board was perfect until i developed a issue. The issue was at the login screen my resolution kept changing when the monitor was completey off and i had to restart the pc every time to fix it when i turned my monitor on. Googled the issue no HAD EXPERIENCED SUCH BEHAVIOUR and i was stuck. So i contacted EVGA thibking right its my GPU. EVGA told me to take the GPU out and test on another machine. Which i did i found to my suprise the GPU WAS PERFECT NO ISSUE. I was then informed to text another GPU IN THIS MACHINE, WHEN I DID the issue was there. EVGA concluded its the motherboard or ram. I found out swapping the ram temporarily fixed the issue only for it to return. This BOARD IS GREAT WHEN IT WORKS.
