I've had about 5 different builds over the years with Asus motherboards, including the one I am currently using. It's the Z68. They've all been very solid, although the Z68 seems to forget which drive is my boot drive. Other than that, it been just perfect.

My first DIY mobo was an ASUS back in 1997. Been using them in my personal builds ever since and have yet to have one die on me that wasn't my fault. :D

I won't say that every board (or any other component, for that matter) I've ever owned or recommended has always been ASUS. After all, without trying something else I wouldn't have a means of comparing ASUS products against others'.

But I will say that every board I've ever liked has been an ASUS, and that I can't and won't recommend anything else to others.

For years, I have built every system in our house, including my wife's and kids' machines - no matter what I built for my wife, she managed to kill it (and of course get mad at me about it) - if i used cheap parts ii died quickly, if I used expensive parts she managed to kill it spectacularly. Or at least she did until I built her last one - I decided to go for my first ASUS motherboard, a ROG Maximus, because everyone said how reliable it was. That machine has not even hiccuped once since I put it together. Now I can game in peace and my wife is happy. Thanks for having a motherboard that not only is long lasting and stable itself but help keep my marriage that way too.

ive been an asus user since early 90's.. I think 1 board out of the 100's i've owned ever failed on me. Asus is usually light years ahead of the competition :D

I built my current pc on a ASUS P8Z77-V LX a few years ago and it still holding up and giving me solid performance. I was gifted a new Asus R9 290 for 2014 christmas and the first 2 were had bad connectors. asus built in testing LED's into the card so you can tell right away if the card is bad. on the 3rd card, I got all green lights. not ASUS's fault, the retailer is abusive to they're products. card is solid too, I can play all the games i have on ultra high at 4k. I would like to have a new mobo to force me to update the cpu. :D

I rebuild my PC every 12-18 months and from the start I have always preferred Asus motherboards. For the price/performance/reliability you really can't beat them and every time I experiment with another board manufacturer, I end up invariably coming back to Asus.

Bought a P6T back in 2009 and it's still rocking the original i7-920 while my wife games on it with me. Been overclocked that entire time too!

Currently sporting a Sabertooth z77 and I love the thermal armor!

My current motherboard is my first asus product and it has been rock solid. Definitely will be buying more asus products in the future.

Started with a P8Z77-V Deluxe, which was my first foray into both Intel and $200+ price range on a motherboard. I recently graduated to an X99 Deluxe so, needless to say, it was a positive experience :)

Long time ASUS fan here, still rocking the TUV4X with a 1.4GHz Tualatin S running linux as an audio server here.

That rig's replacement is the X58 Rampage 3 formula I am typing on.

Got a TUSL2C in working order hanging on the wall...lol

Got out of pc gaming/building pcs when I moved away to college and bought a prebuilt Dell(blah).

Fast-forward to 2011... I decided it was time to build a pc again. I had always had Abit boards and decided to give ASUS a whirl. I picked up a Asus Sabertooth 990fx, Phonom x6 1100t, 16GB ram, a Sapphire 6950, and a new fangled SSD drive.

Well that setup lasted me until BF4 came out... at that time I bought a R9 290 and sold off the 6950 during the mining craze. In the following June I retired out the old Phenom for a FX-8350, new case, and a watercooler for the FX-8350. I saw no issues with the Sabertooth 990fx so I didn't replace it.

Now it is driving 2 290x's and the FX-8350... with no issues and all the overclocking abilities I could ever want. So the board is four years old and with it's recent upgrades has no problem driving my 4k monitor on ultra in BF4, Crysis 3, etc...

tldr; If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I've used several Asus boards in the bast 15 years or so in various builds. Never had a need for RMA. Always had great performance for the money spent.

I have been a loyal ASUS customer for many years. Currently have a P4B-266C with Pentium 4 combo in a family member's rig for many years now. Have a P8Z77-V Pro waiting to build with a 3570k. Getting the Sabertooth Z97 Mark-S and the Strix GTX 980 would be a life-altering event.

I've been running Asus boards exclusively since the T2P4 days. I've yet to have a bad experience with them.

Been using Asus mainboards for longer than I care to remember. Now that they have expanded their product portfolio so much I'm beginning to use a lot more than just their mainboards as well and will continue to do so as long as the quality remains high.

I've used almost every board manufacture out there...some of which are now gone (Abit, DFI). I always ended up with an Asus in my machines though. While some would tout all the fancy bells and whistles, they have not provided the same quality and stability. I still have my old Celeron 300A running on a P2-99 @ 450!

We have been using Asus boards from about the time Intel stopped making mobos. They have hit the spot in terms of price performance, while still meeting expectations in terms of support and rma. We also use Asus monitors and routers.

I don't have a great Asus story to tell, but I have used several Asus motherboards in past builds and never had an issue with their quality.

Cuurently running an ASUS board in my main rig now. Still have an old dual-socket Pentium board with 2 - 233MMX's in it which is still operable with Windows NT4 installed on it. Used to be a Quake II server back in the day. Most of my boards have been ASUS and I've chosen ASUS boards for many systems I've assembled, probably in the hundreds. Only ever had to RMA one and the process was painless. Good stuff

First and last personal Asus board: Crosshair IV Formula. Worked great, no problems. Loved all the ROG features.

Cousin's experience (which I had a share of): P8P67 Pro stopped working after a few months. RMA'd, replacement arrived defective. RMA'd again, replacement worked for a week before quitting.

I'll take an Asus for free, but I'm not going to spend my money for them, not until their RMA issues are cleared up.

Asus rampage III extreme still powers my main system today; given a bit of a boost with a Xeon CPU. Because the r3e has sata3 and usb3 (not native but better than not at all) I really haven't felt the need to upgrade.

Rock solid.

One fine day many years ago my friend had acquired the Asus P5Q Pro Turbo and I believe it was an e8400 processor. We had the wonderful idea of trying out water cooling for the first time, and in our haste of putting together the cheapest loop we could, forgot to put a hose clamp on one connection. About 45 minutes later after running, the tubing detached itself presumably from the heat and shot water all over the inside of the case. The Asus P5Q was no more. This was also one of my first intros into watercooling, and a great learning experience (luckily with someone else's machine).;)

Been using Asus motherboard since Pentium 2/3 socket 370 days TUSL and CUSL model mobo's with the Tualatin Pentiums. Then jumped jumped on the A8N lineup, then the Commando, Striker 1/2 Extreme, 1366 Workstation Revolution model (can't remember exact model ID), Rampage Extreme 1/2/3 and now 4 on 2011. Never had any problems as I always found the higher end Asus mobo's to be excellent overclocker's and had nice aesthetic heatsinking and PCB colour matching to boot.

Did have 1 issue with one of my old Rampage 2 Extremes but that was because it was a $50 ebay purchase that it was too good to be true, heck spent retail on another one after because I liked it so much.

Never had to RMA any of my Asus mobo's, Gigabyte a few, EVGA a few, but never Asus.

I purchased an Asus board to replace an MSI board that died on me. The Asus board worked great for everything except overclocking. If I adjusted the voltage at all, the board wouldn't post, even at stock frequencies. The rma process took about a month and Asus replaced it with a functional board.

I got my first ASUS board back in 2008. It was a P5Q Deluxe I used to house a Q6600. That board took my CPU to 3.4ghz and has kept it running strong to this day.

When I decided to make an upgrade, I knew my best bet was to stick with ASUS. I picked up a Z87 Pro and added a 4770k to it. It's been rock solid for me for the past 18 months :)

He wept. His bargain motherboard has failed him and he did not know why. "What have I done wrong?" he asked himself. The answer was undoubtedly nothing.

"Why did they deny my RMA?" he thought. The answer was simply because they do not care about their customers.

He had done nothing to cause the inevitable failure of his motherboard and nothing to cause the RMA to be rejected. He walked over to the garbage can and disposed of his terrible motherboard while wiping the tears from his face.

Out of the side of his vision something caught his eye... a glimmer of hope in the darkness that was brought upon by his ill-fated motherboard. "Oh, what is this?!" he exclaimed with excitement. "Is this what I think it is?!" he asked himself with great delight.

Yes, it is. The fabled Asus in the Stone! He knelt down and wrenched the legendary motherboard from the rocks below as hard as he could... holding it over his head with one arm while beating his chest with the other; he roared loud and fierce!

I will use this motherboard to slayith thine terrible dragons in the land of Skyrim! I will use it to slayith thine putrid enemies in Battlefield! Lastly, I will use it to bring happiness upon the ill-fated motherboard purchasers of the [H] land! Hoorah!

Asus has always been my MoBo of choice and I love the ROG ones that are out. My x58 board from Asus is the best I have ever had to deal with and it was so nice to use and setup. I recommend Asus boards to all my friends and enjoy the features and abilities of the boards since the late 90's.

I am still using a Rampage 2 Gene that I recently upgraded to an x5650 and it works as good today as it did when it was new.

My daughter is using, daily, an ancient G41 board that just keeps ticking.

Thanks ASUS!!!
