ASUS P10S reviews

P10S WS Server Motherboard for DIY Workstation Build is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I was apprehensive about buying this motherboard but it had the best fit of features for building a Windows 7 workstation. I installed an HP N4M64AT wireless card, an Adaptec 1405 SAS controller, an AMD Radeon R7 250 graphics card. I utilize the onboard Realtek audio via an optical TOSLINK connection to an AV receiver. I know other users have complained about audio issues but the Realtek audio driver version works flawlessly. I installed 64GB of Crucial DDR4 ECC memory that was initially *not* recognized by the motherboard and prevented boot up. I used the ASUS USB BIOS Flashback feature to upgrade the BIOS after which the installed memory was recognized. I'm thrilled with this motherboard because at this point everything works reliably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good piece of hardware, worst compatibility. I bought this board along with intel 6600 cpu and geforce gtx 1070. Great features, many bios options to customize. Stable system. Except, This board is not compatible with Nvidia Pascal hardware. Crashes, freezes, even wont able to play simple web videos. Sadly I returned it back to B&H. Now waiting for the other brand...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way too buggy Pros: Great feature set BIOS is well organized and the flashing tool is super easy to use Cons: Could not get the audio to work without crackling/static despite many hours spent trouble-shooting. It can't complete a full format of an external hard drive from Windows disk management over USB 3.0 ports. Support has been very poor so far. Other Thoughts: I learned way more than I ever wanted to know about trouble-shooting Windows audio drivers. Bottom line: there's a problem deep in the board/BIOS. Audio ISRs are lasting around 75 microseconds, 3x higher than Microsoft's recommended max (while running a clean boot). This persists when running audio through HDMI to a (Asus) monitor w/ a sound jack and even in Linux Mint. I carefully confirmed that the hard drive problems with the USB 3.0 ports were not the drive's fault. I have two identical 4TB external drives (STEB4000100) purchased at the same time that exhibit identical behavior (semaphore timeout errors and the like). However the same two drives work flawlessly on the (single) USB 3.1 port and on another system. Asus didn't have an answer on why this was happening; they suggested there wasn't enough power from the 3.0 ports until I explained the drives are externally powered (wall warts). Support has been incredibly disappointing. I had a hard time even submitting a ticket at first (note: don't log in before entering your ticket; there's a problem with their web site that won't allow you to finish). Once I got the ticket entered I had to send a follow-up inquiry after several days and then finally log an actual complaint before I got a (non-automated) response. I got a total of 1 reply via email from level 2 support, and it was clear the tech didn't read my whole ticket. When I politely referred to the rest of my ticket I received no response after several days. So I spent about 1 hour on the phone either on hold or talking to a level 1 tech who shuttled back and forth to (presumably) higher-level support. He was nice enough but the answers I received were: For the HD problem, they assume it's a chipset compatibility issue and said it might get fixed in a future BIOS update. Given that it's a mainstream Intel chipset driving the 3.0 ports I'm going to pin that on the BIOS. For the audio issue they said it might get fixed in a BIOS update but otherwise they might need me to RMA it. I was told they'd make a decision within 2 days. That was 1 week ago and nothing yet. Even with Thanksgiving it's been 4 business days. I really wanted to like this board. But it's very buggy in ways that I cannot fix (trust me when I say I have gone to troubleshooting extremes for both issues; I've been trying to avoid tearing down the machine and possibly having to start over w/ installs, etc.). UPDATE: the latest BIOS results in my computer doing a hard freeze randomly. When I try to re-flash to an older version it tells me that that version is not valid. I think there' s way to force feed it but honestly if I don't get an RMA and/or they don't fix this w/ a new BIOS I'm going to give up. Asus, I hope you read this and can help me. I would be thrilled to update this review with a happy ending. FYI: Memory: No problems. I bought 2 sticks of this which was on the QVL for this board: Kingston Value RAM KVR21E15D8/8 CPU: Xeon E3 1275 v5 HDD: Intel 750 400GB PCIE SSDPEDMW400G4X1 (NvME) FYI: I tried running this on slot 1 and couldn't complte an install of Windows; I should've left slot 1 open for a possible future graphics card anyway and it installed the first time in the second slot and has run flawlessly with blazing speeds since PS: Corsair RM650i Video Card: None (the 4 on-board options are probably all I'll ever need for my scenario) OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit
