Works flawlessly, and charges your phone. Also, there are LED's next to each major component, m.2, ram, cpu etc. These will light in sequence, and alert the user if there's an issue.
Well how the heck are you supposed to know what error code you are getting if you don't own an expensive android smartphone? It shouldn't be a requirement to have a $300 phone just to be able to see the post errors on a $300 motherboard....-___-
Wanting to get one of these to go along with a 5960X and some corsair dominator platinum 2666mhz DDR4 but i was concerned about some reports of bad overclocking from reviews and now this too. Sucks that there's virtually zero pictures of the board in actual systems either, was wondering what it would look like in my caselabs SMA8 with my SLI EK waterblocks for GPU and Supremacy EVO CPU waterblock etc...
The motherboard has various LEDS throughout the motherboard that tell you exactly what the error is. Check out the user manual available on ASUS's website. Having a smartphone is not a requirement, but a mere perk for potential customers that do have one. OC from my personal experience is on point.
As for lack of pictures... I've seen plenty of builds online using this motherboard, but this is a relatively new board so these things take time.
