3 Comments to Asus P9X79 Pro Motherboard Review

  1. No one routes for the evil villan who’s run off with the hero’s beau, same applies to a site that’s been stuck in Google’s naughty corner.
    This will allow you to answer only those calls that come in on your forwarded toll free
    number and route other calls to different locations.
    The only tab of your concern is Public Templates, and no actions
    are necessary as it is already on the screen.

  2. It sounds like this “reviewer” has none of the credentials or knowledge necessary to write as a reviewer of a product like this. His “review” consists of an almost picturesque version of an ad man’s brochure.

    ASUS has been the top dog in the realm of PC components for a long time
    now, and it doesn’t take a genius to see why, especially when you look
    at their motherboards. Take the P9X79 Pro – when you pull it out of the
    box everything about it just screams “elite”. Just look at the huge
    heat sinks on this bad boy – it easily looks like it should belong in
    the upper echelon of mobos.

    Implying that LOOKS has anything to do with performance is just such a bush league statement. I wonder if this “reviewer” has a clue as to how any of this really works.

    Another statement that just REEKS of technical wizardry (heavy sarcasm) is:

    I was quite impressed with what all the P9X79 Pro was able to do with it.

    What did it do – juggle? Tap dance? OHHHHH – You mean something like RUN PROGRAMS – PLAY GAMES. Not one TECHNCIAL DETAIL – maybe some bus bandwidth specs as measured using state of the art equipment or at least fastest available COTS parts?

    People like this ought to stick with what they know – NOT MUCH.

  3. ASUS “USED TO BE” one of the top tier manufacturers, however, their quality control has hit the skids.

    I had an ASUS Rampage II Extreme with USB that would lose power after just a brief period of time. That meant I lost mouse and keyboard and therefore all control. Sure, a new motherboard from ASUS solved the problem but I essentially lost 2 weeks of time during this process.

    Not deterred, I tried the ASUS Rampage III Extreme motherboard on my next build. Lo and behold, this one did not come out of reset unless I hit the Q_Reset button on the motherboard that temporarily interrupts power to the CPU. I often have to do this 10-50 times before the motherboard will spring to life. So I got in touch with ASUS and had them send out a replacement. THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENS WITH THIS ONE !!! Once it’s booted, it will stay alive for weeks, but getting it booted is a royal pain. I contacted ASUS and they said they would send out another one. I can understand SOME hardware problems, but when they send out one motherboard to replace one you’d think that one would be a KNOWN GOOD BOARD. But NOT WITH ASUS!

    Anyhow, the more I talk to people in the industry the more I hear these tales of ASUS dropping the ball on both QUALITY and CUSTOMER SERVICE. Most people think their customer service department doesn’t even exist!

    So, ASUS – the ride was good while it lasted, but I’m off to another vendor and ASROCK is looking to be pretty good right about now – young, hungry, great products – probably where ASUS was 10 years…
