Crossed my fingers and tested the board out, it POSTed! However, sadly, it took further testing, for me to realize the U.2 ports weren't working, no matter what cable, or device, I hooked up to the u.2 ports, there would be no detection.
Also, the fan headers weren't working properly, not all fans would turn on, and each reboot had a different outcome, in terms of which fan would actually run, if any. This was a motherboard issue, the fans are working on other systems, and the bios simply showed different fan detection with each reboot (adjusting settings did nothing)
Based on the poor reviews, I cannot say whether my issues stemmed from amazon's poor shipping (for such an expensive, and sensitive piece of equipment) or if these issues are due to Asus's poor QC with this board, maybe a mixture of both.
However the board comes well equipped with features, and accessories, and was manufacturered with good quality components, you can really feel and see it... If only the board was 100% functional
Later will provide pictures as well
I just built a monster with this board.
~1.5TB RAM, (12x 128Gb sticks DDR4 2666)
2x Xeon Gold 6138T (80 threads)
4x Nvidia TITAN XP.
24TB HDD (2x12TB)
Samsung NVMe 970 PRO SSD
8 High Volume 4.5A Server Fans air cooled (but noisy in this case)
Cooler Master HAFX super tower
We run it at 100% CPU and 100% GPU loads for hours
I modified the chasis so the air system keeps the GPUS temps below 75c and CPUs below 56C)
It gives me about 82 TFLOPS (we needed for AI, and ML) for ~US$ 30K
Good enough for this year...
Next year I will built a PATAFLOP system using 13 of these systems in parallel for < $400K (I hope)
Come back later for more
Having said that, if you decide to go with this board DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT BUY IT FROM AMAZON! Buy direct from ASUS!
First one I got was DOA. Second one did not read all PCIe slots. Third one read all PCIe slots but only read DIMM slots for one CPU socket! Then I decided to RMA the third one myself directly through ASUS instead of returning it through Amazon, and sure enough the fourth board I got works great! I don’t know if ASUS repaired the board I sent them or just sent me a brand new one, but all that mattered to me is that it worked, finally…
Major problem for me throughout this whole ordeal is that I have limited time to work on my builds, and due to the complexity of this one I had to install everything just to test the board, including dual custom water loops (would've used air cooling initially if I had any kind of inkling this would happen because this is the first faulty board I've gotten from ASUS, not to mention three). So long story short I had to completely disassemble/rebuild the whole system four times essentially, although on the second and third ones I spared myself some time/effort by using a single GPU and only a single DIMM stick for each CPU just to get to BIOS to make sure everything looked right. All-in-all it took almost a year to build this system due to said limited time, and even if I had unlimited time to work on it (like the good ol’ days) I’m sure it still would’ve taken at least 1-2 months to finish just because all else aside, that’s about how long it would’ve taken just to get a working board.

I use it as a dual workstation/render node for high quality 3D visualizations including 3D rendering, animating, video editing, AR/VR development, and maybe a little extracurricular gaming after hours :). I might have gone a little overboard on the RAM and the PSUs, but either way this thing is an absolute monster! Although never as beastly as this one, this is the fourth similar dual CPU machine that I’ve built for myself and my team of 3D designers/specialists (this one’s mine), who all share a render farm with 12 render nodes totaling 320 cores/640 threads for CPU rendering and an expansive array of GPU’s for GPU rendering.
In other words, very low gas/heat bill during the winter, very high electric bill all year.
May sound like overkill for 3D visualization, but we work at a very fast pace and are rendering in the background just about 100% of the time. With this build I can have both CPU’s rendering in the background at 100% and still use the machine and all the software we use with little to no loss in performance.
Lastly, before buying this board make sure that your case is compatible! At original purchase date I could only find four cases that it would fit in without any modding, two of which looked like spaceships, and I do not think any of them had ALL the holes required for mounting. I’m not sure it was necessary because the board felt like it was secure, but I went ahead and drilled the two holes that were missing in the Corsair 1000D case just to be safe because the 4x GPU water block array is VERY heavy!
I gave it 3 stars because I couldn't decide whether to give it 5 stars because the board itself is awesome or to give it 1 star because buying it from Amazon turned out to be such a hassle.
