Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea! Maybe they will fix problems with a bios update later.I think it is a lot easier to manage smaller boards. I have not been able to get 19 gpus to work, only 11. If Asus will collaborate with Linux, Microsoft, AMD, Intel and someone like Nvidia and reduce the requirements and complexity of the board, they have a winner...of course...by then someone will have a 50 gpu board...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cdw ready to waist my timecdw was ready to take my payment for this product when i asked cdw chat rep if the item was available even though it is clearly listed for sale. the rep stated he has no access to availability and that i needed to call them.i called them and they stated this item is out of stock.they wanted a payment, they were not ready to ship item and they did not have item in stock. if i had not checked availabilty i would have needed to relied on these people to give me a full refund in a timely manner with no additional fees. something tells me this is a scam so that they can charge my credit card and issue a refund at thier convenience.this was listed as the cheapest place to buy even though they wanted a payment and did not want to send an item. carefull do not buy from cdw!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Worthwhile Hassle.I feel confident using these as my primary mining boards. I believe the cap for video cards on Windows 10 with Nvidia cards/drivers is 13, which I've had running in my rig. If I remember correctly 11 was the max for Radeon.These limitations, based on much speculation, are likely limited to graphics drivers and I believe some mining OS may be able to support the full 19. All of this I'm just trying to recall from when I was working on these back during the winter, so please double check my information if pertinent. I just wanted to address the concerns from the only other review.The amount of features in the BIOS/UEFI of this board is large and offers all the features I need when I end up troubleshooting from time to time. However, I end up missing the item I'm looking for as my eyes have glazed over after looking at the same menu full of random features I don't understand, for the third time (it's complicated).I tried to get Windows running from a USB drive, which the BIOS ended up not being much help on. This is another problem that is likely primarily due to Windows[OS] / Drivers rather than the motherboard. I'm not concerned with the form factor as it's largely irrelevant since all of these boards require risers anyway. With this many GPUs, however, make sure you buy risers with 2' cables, I had some 1' cables and they're basically unusable. This likely depends on your rig set-up, however. Honestly, I haven't had a problem with my CHEAP BioStar boards either (which I haven't ran near as much), I just stay overstocked on these and use them in rigs with less than 11 cards anyway. They are very nice boards, IMO, and the start-up screen that shows card connection status is helpful for monitoring as well.When I was researching boards, this really stands out to me as one of the best values for a high quality, reliable board that offers miners lots of features in the bios for tweaking which contributes to the long-term utility of these boards.I plan on expanding my infrastructure as well as continuing to refine my knowledge and the number of options in the BIOS/UEFI gives me plenty of things to tweak -- which is a bit daunting if you're unfamiliar to all of it.For me, it mostly comes down to price per card on the board. 3 power supply hook-ups make it incredibly easy to use standard retail PSUs with these boards, even up to 19 cards if possible. I may run Linux in the future, or there may be a mining update for Nvidia, I don't know. I even looked into using PCI-E splitters and running multiple cards off each port, but am not in a hurry to test that.
