  1. MLO

    Did a computer upgrade and a new motherboard was part of it. Chose this one to go with a I5 8600k cpu. Got it, put my system together and system would not boot up. Got the Ram warning light on motherboard. Hit the Ram button which is supposed to reboot it to more compatible memory settings but it didn’t work. Called Amazon and was on phone quite awhile troubleshooting. The troubleshooting proved difficult cause I had also replaced CPU, video card, and Ram. Yeah, I was thinking, “this might not end well for me”. Amazon tech agreed with me it was most likely a bad motherboard. This was Saturday afternoon when I had called. They express shipped me out a replacement motherboard and I got it the next day Sunday morning! No kidding you say. Well that’s what I said too. Built system again with replacement motherboard and this time booted right up and I’ve been cruising ever since. Motherboard turns out to be good but I did have to have it replaced once cause the first one was defective. I could easily knock a couple of stars off since I got a bad motherboard the first try. Or I could leave all the stars on cause of such good support from Amazon. You be the judge.

    Fantastic value for Intel 8th gen Z370 chipset. Has similar features to the Hero line of boards at a reduced cost. Was able to overclock my i7-8700k to 5.2ghz stable using this board. Lots of fan headers, and even an RGB header. USB 3.1 support is outstanding with even a type-C connector on the back. Included M.2 heat sync is a great feature at this price point as well as a VRM fan mount. The one very minor tiny complaint I have is I wish they would improve the I/O shield as it looks kind of cheap for a motherboard of this quality.

    5 Stars for what it is; an excellent budget board.Caveat: I always build with ASUS, Intel, Crucial and nVidia so I cannot compare this to other brands of components.I was going for a smaller, budget build so I stayed away from full sized motherboards and Z390 chipsets. When I narrowed my search down this is what was left. I coupled it with the following pieces:–Fractal Design Define C Silent compact ATX case (a step above budget level)–Intel Core i3-8100 CPU with stock cooler–2x4GB Crucial DDR4 2400 RAM–Samsung 970 EVO NVMe 500 GB M.2 SSD @ PCIe x4 (NOT a budget piece, this little guy is premium)–MSI GTX 1050 video card–Seasonic Focus Plus 650W PSU (80+ Gold) (Also NOT a budget piece, 10-yr warranty. I like quality PSUs)This was my first NVMe M.2 install. After getting conflicting advice from every source I opted to go with the stock “Optimized Default” BIOS settings. Then I flashed it up to the most recent BIOS (v.1402) from within the BIOS and shut it down. Inserted my Flash Drive with Windows 10 Home v.1903 and booted up.It all went very smoothly. The BIOS and motherboard recognized the NVMe M.2 without any trouble and the Windows install started right up. I created a medium-sized boot partition for Windows and it was off to the races. About 10 minutes later I was dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.When I finished the project the result was a computer that boots up and runs very quickly and it has been up and running for a couple of weeks now with zero problems. Compared with my own computer, built last December with an i5-9600K CPU, a Z390 chipset and a regular 2.5 inch SATA SSD, this new i3 machine with the NVMe M,2 drive is booting up a couple of seconds faster. Both machines are running the same version of Windows 10: 1903, 18362.267This one was for a close friend who needed to move on from Windows 7. I liked it so much that I’m building a twin for my spouse who also needs to move up from Windows 7. (Hers is getting an MSI GTX 1650 video card)I recommend this mobo for what it is; a fine budget board. If you need more horsepower faster RAM and more features, go with the Z390 chipset, an ATX mobo and an i5 or i7 CPU.

    I could have got a z370 for not much more. However, I don’t overclock, I won’t ever overclock, and I wish there was more focus on features and stability instead of making sure “gaming” is in the name. Good stable board that “games” just fine.

    After building past PCs with Asus motherboards with good success, I opted for another Asus motherboard, this time the Asus Prime Z370A, a middle of the road motherboard with a great price from Amazon. I paired the motherboard with the Intel i5 8400 CPU and together these are a good combination.The install went well but when I turned on the new PC build, I was met with no beep sound and the system refused to post and the monitor stayed dark. The case fans and the CPU and graphics board fans all turned on as well as the LEDs. Close inspection showed the orange motherboard DRAM light was continuously on.The manual recommends pressing the MemOK button until the DRAM light starts blinking. Pressing the MemOK button with a pencil eraser causes the DRAM light to begin automatic memory compatibility testing and it goes through a cycle of blinks for a couple of minutes but every time it would return to the continuous light state. I suspected the problem to be either with my single 8GB DDR4 memory stick or with the motherboard A2 memory slot required for a single stick of memory. Having only one 8GB DDR4 memory stick, I was unable to swap sticks to determine if the memory stick was bad or whether the motherboard A2 slot for a single memory stick was bad. I bit the bullet and purchased a second stick of DDR4 memory ($90) that I hoped not to have to buy. The second memory stick yielded the same result as the first and after spending days investigating the problem, I resolved that the problem had to be with the motherboard.I phoned Amazon customer service about having the motherboard replaced. I was first handed off to Amazon tech service where I explained the steps I had taken to try to resolve the problem. I was told that I had already done all the steps they would recommend and I received immediate authorization to return the board.I’ll have to give kudos to Amazon for the speedy resolution of the problem motherboard. I phoned them in the morning about 11:30am and my replacement motherboard was delivered to my door about eight hours later on the same day about 7:30 pm. I was impressed with the customer care I received.The next morning I hooked up the new motherboard to my new computer build and when I turned it on, the process went flawless this time and I’m typing this now from this new computer. Dealing with the first motherboard was a hassle I could do without but sometimes…….how to say this delicately……Stuff Happens!…. but Amazon did a fantastic job with problem resolution.

    You can pay vastly more for ASUS’ ROG line of motherboards (or similar from Gigabyte or MSI) but if you look closely, you will find that this Prime A board has 98% of the features for a good deal less. I am currently using this board to overclock my 8700k chip and it is running at 5.2 GHz on all cores (adaptive mode) under a custom water loop at 1.41 volts. This Prime A board has the same 8 phase VRMs that the more expensive ROG boards mainly use, which is why this board will do just as good in the overclocking department generally. It does not have the Clear CMOS button at the back that I like on more expensive boards, but everything else is well done. My one gripe about this board is the measly 6 USB ports on the back I/O plate. I use my main rig for flight simming and VR use and have 19 USB devices that need to be hooked up. ASUS, fast forward to 2018 and get with the picture. 6 USB ports might have been fine back in 2003, but come on…… (I ended up buying powered USB hubs and 2 Innateck USB 3.0 expansion cards, which both work fine). When I first laid out my rig, I considered buying the ROG Maximus X Hero or Formula. However, I feel this board has 98% of the “guts” and “goodies” of those boards without the bling over charge. YMMV, but I have been very happy with this Prime A board.

    I’ve been building computers for myself and other people since the the late 80’s and I have build many different brands over the years such as A-Bit, MSI, Gigabyte, Asrock, and Asus. But the last 3 personal builds for myself have been the Asus Brand because of reliability and ease of setup. This motherboard was no different and the quality of the motherboard looked to be superb! It’s quality through and through. At about $165.00 this board is a bargain, the Intel i5 8th Gen CPU cost a hundred dollars more! The only issue I had was a tight fit around the back connector plate, and I had to remove a chassis cooling fan in order to not force the connector cover under it. Still that wasn’t hard to remove the fan and re-install it after that. It does fit well, but tight. Again, this was on my Corsair Brand Case, yours will probably be different? Other than that, I had no “Murphy’s Law” happen. Probably the most difficult thing to do was install the CPU bracket, and you should go to YouTube to see how to do it. If you don’t do it correctly, you could damage the MB, and the CPU won’t sit evenly on the heat-sink. You also need to use the plastic spacers on each the 4 jack-screws or you won’t be able to screw them down. The MB also comes with very good thermal grease, so don’t waste your money buying the Arctic Silver, the Asus supplies thermal grease is fine and there is enough to do 3 CPU’s. After a week using this motherboard, I’m more than happy, it is extremely fast! My system has the Samsung SSD MNVe M2.1 500GB, Samsumg EVO SSD Drive for the other drive. I use a 1TB Seagate Disc Hard drive for backup up only. I have the 8th Gen Intel i5 8600K 6-core CPU that is faster than a 7th Gen i7 CPU. This system is blistering fast, it boots from stone cold in less that 20 secs. and a warm boot (reset) is faster than that! I’d recommend this board highly for graphics use and video editing and it is also a good gaming MB too although it is not considered the top Asus gaming board. This MB also has 4K video on board, although I use an after market GTX Nvidea Card that is a faster and more powerful card instead of the onboard video.

    I just used this board for the following build;I7-9700KEVGA RTX2070 XC32 (4×8) GB Corsair LPX 3200 MHZEVGA 750 GQ PSUWD 500 GB m.2 PCIE, sata (boot drive)WD black 2TB HDD (Storage)2 120MM fansH60 liquid coolerI have been able to successfully OC the CPU to 4.8 with no thermal or stability issues. Also I OC the GPU with out issue but found it was completely unnecessary as PUBG was running at over 144 FPS stock. I have been able to play and stream from this single PC setup with out any issue. All ports work perfectly and easily identify the peripherals that are plugged in. There are tons of FAN headers to allow for cable management and an arsenal of fans to be added. The PCIE slot reinforcement is an extremely noticeable touch and it’s one I appreciate. After running a UserBenchmark test on this PC all components tested WELL above the 100% rating.While it has a lot of basic features and some advanced it does lack some more advanced features like, WIFI, thunderbolt 3 (can buy the card though), and there’s a few USB 3.0 gen 2 on I/O. For most though this board is PLENTY.I did dip around in the BIOS and found the presets are good “starting” point but tweaking is still needed after. It tried pushing the CPU to 5.2 and I saw thermal issues almost instantly. The options that are available in the BIOS however will allow anyone who takes the time to learn how to OC the ability to do so with ease and comfort.
