Asus: 30 Years Together, Giveaway April 29 - June 10 2019


Hey all,

Time sure does fly! To think that we have now had Asus with us for 30 years. I think a good many of us here have owned an Asus product at one time or another. I personally have owned a few of their motherboards and routers over the years. Asus have decided to celebrate their 30th milestone with a giveaway, see below on how you can get in on the celebrations.

Quote:
ASUS today announced 30 Years Together, a global campaign to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary with fans worldwide. Over the past three decades, user feedback has inspired ASUS to develop products that raise the bar for innovation and performance. During this anniversary celebration, ASUS is taking the opportunity to express a heartfelt “thank you” to loyal fans for their continued support and is also asking users to share some of their product experiences.

The campaign encourages fans to share a product story and/or to take a fun PC DIY quiz for a chance to win one of many exciting prizes. ASUS will be awarding prizes to 30 winners, including a modded, high-end rig, limited-edition motherboards with Intel® Core™ i9-9980XE processors, ROG Maximus XI Formula motherboards with Intel Core i9-9900K processors, ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ 2080 Ti OC Edition graphics cards, an ROG Swift PG27UQ monitor and more. The campaign runs from April 29–June 10, 2019. Enter now for a chance to win!

Been an Asus user for years. All of my motherboards, routers, my first android tablet and several cell phones have all been Asus. If I'm honest, I'm a bit of an Asus loyalist.

One of the main reasons was when I bought an Asus motherboard in 2000 that constantly blue screened on me. This was the infamous Intel MTH failure/recall. I contacted Asus for a replacement on a Friday. Monday morning, the board replacement was delivered. I couldn't believe it. I hadn't even sent that bad board back yet.

A few years later on another board, with an Athlon Thunderbird , I think, suffered from severe whine. It was high pitched and annoying, even at idle. As you loaded it up, it got louder and more high pitched. It was like nails on a chalkboard. Same thing as my first experience. Reported it and two days later, had a replacement board delivered, again without even shipping out the bad board. I've been an Asus loyalist ever since.

Typically, when I build, I never have any trouble with their products, but when I do, they've always taken care of me and quickly.

Happy Anniversary Asus! Now give me a prize!!!!

Sorry asus, the evga card was dirt cheap, but the old gtx asus one went threw a few cartons of cigarettes and beer and had to go after a decade or so of faithfull abuse.



Had to let it go as I got got drunk one night and fried the hdmi on the gtx, and the vga on the gt 710.



But hey, the MOBO still help up.

My GF has baptized my current setup as the "frankenstein"


I just leave it lying around all the time like this. don't even bother to clean it or f with it. The asus mobo has been going strong for 10+++ yrs. Always on, always boots no matter what stupid stuff I put into my man child brain.



Asus rocks in everything I ever bought. Never had to send any single product back cuz of manufacture defect. And trust me, I abuse my stuff. Just look at the 600w thermal psu in the above pic. I smoke close to a pack a day, a six pack of beer and I am a automotive technician to boot. So you know my fingers are not small and flaky, so the asus components bear well with a guy like me.



My gf\s current setup is there just because of the fact I think asus MOBO's are tuff like the tuff book I use at work. I threw in the old asus gtz 660 with the blown hdmi port. It work on her new asus socket 1150 mobo. I have been using asus products for more than a decade now, not much surpasses them. Some may always have an opinion, but that is much like arseholes, every one has one.


I just think asus really puts forward a philosophy much like toyota. They build their stuff to last. Period.



If asus made tuff book's I would like to win one.

The first system I ever built, a Pentium III system back in 1999, was with an Asus board. It was in the "Recommended" build in Computer Gaming World Magazine, that's why I choose the board and I've been using mostly Asus ever since...though I do have an Asrock MB in my desktop right now, Asrock did originate from Asus.

My most fun Asus board was the p4p800. I had a p4 2.4 Prescott core on it over clocked to 4.05ghz stable all day long. Had to solder a pot. to the motherboard to manually tune for the vdroop to get it stable.

I had an Asus K53TA Laptop that was as dependable and rock solid as they come. It was even overclockable and ran quite happily being boosted from 1.4GHz to 2.9GHz while undervolted to top it off.

This is where I learned how to mod a BIOS, and where I discovered I could use my knowledge to have a large impact on how well it performed.

I purchased my trusty companion in 2011 and after countless 14 hour days spent studying with it, I sold the laptop in 2017. As far as electronics go this was a hall of famer if there ever was one.

My first high-end motherboard was a Maximus VI GENE, which was also used in my first watercooled build, had some great fun with it!

I've had Asus P5Q Pro running E8400 then Q8400, Core 2 Duo CPU was the first one I actually licked overclocking topic with. I was really satisfied with the motherboard, and tampering with all these vcores, NB voltage, PLL voltage and other voltages was really fun. All this FSB Wall finding, checking which voltage does what for stability, which one can be raised to lower core voltage, adjusting memory speed... The nostalgy is real . C2D made 4.13GHz with 1.28V, Core 2 Quad made 3.65GHz with 1.3V I think, can't remember now. The first one was getting thermal limited, the latter was my brothers and he forbid me from doing any overlock at all . Bought 10 years ago, runs till today and doesn't want to retire, would like to play with it some more but it's 420km away from me. There was also some other P5QL/EPU but can't remember anything about that, besides that it was paired with C2D E4600 for more than five years already.


I also owned three ASUS' GPUs - 9800 GTX+, which was replaced by GTX260 and GTX 460 1GB TOP version. The oldest died after two or three years of using, then I've tried killing the 2nd one with overclocking but it just didn't give up. I remember it heating up to 82C in Racedriver Grid and that was the only game that pushed the card to the limit ^^. Nothing else was able to heat it up even to 70C and there were some more demanding games too. GTX460 was serving well for five years, I remember it being able to hit 920MHz on core but that was a time I was scared of overclocking the GPU at all and didn't really want to kill this one, so I just kept it at 850MHz without much voltage difference. Good old SmartDoctor times . Completely satisfied with each one of them - strong for games I played, quiet and little power hungry.


The most recent addition to Asus family was Maximus VII Hero, at first paired with 4690k. I was really touched by its soundcard but it also had issues I struggled to fix, the sound was distorted on a lot of tracks. After a few days I managed by trial and errors to find a culprit. Preamplifier had to be toned down a bit, after that fix sound was clear and nice. Of course, I didn't have my current audio device back then . I found the UEFI, lots of configuration options, fan control and voltage readings amusing, it was the first board I actually learnt proper CPU overclocking, tinkered with advanced power settings, disabled unused features, MAKE BACKUPS. Absolutely amazing board. Then 4690k was exchanged for 5775c and issues surfaced. There were TONS of compatibility issues with this pair, the only way to maintain stability and full performance was to untouch anything other than CPU clocks, XMP profiles and voltages. Touching anything else produced problems. It was sent for an RMA, it was replaced but the replacement had identical issues. They were also briefly swapped for Z97 Gaming Plus for the duration of RMA. It was solid too and didn't fall too far from M7H (for my needs) but it also had damaged socket, which resulted in insane temperature reading issue, where one and only one core temperature could skyrocket from 60C to over 95C without any reason for some seconds then it came back to previous reading... or it could not because it also triggered overheating protection twice so PC shut down.


So far that's my story with ASUS products. Updated with photos! P5QL/EPU got retired this winter after getting finally swapped with P5Q Pro. It's still working and kicking though!
