Who is QUO?

In 2009 QUO made news by opening the first retail store to sell custom built computers. We have been featured in CNET by Macworld Editor, Jim Dalrymple as well as OSnews, PCWorld, a podcast on MyMac, Wired, Ubergizmo, Zdnet andEngadget.


QUO was built on the premise Your Computer . Your Configuration . Your Choice.


Now we are breaking new ground with the unique Z77MX-QUO-AOS motherboard. This one-of-a-kind board has a selection of high quality components not available on any motherboard in the market.

The board along with UEFI allows extremely fast boot up times in to the OS of your choice.

The motherboard is built on Intel® Z77 chipset for Ivy Bridge CPUs.

As a customer you have the option of using any method(s) to install the software you choose.

Hardware Production

Through testing and design we have perfected this motherboard. We have also tested the BIOS/UEFI with developers in Romania, England, U.S. and China. We will continue to support the BIOS/UEFI. This exceptional hardware/motherboard comes with a 3 YEAR WARRANTY.


Our motherboards are stamped AOS (ANY OPERATING SYSTEM). The first 100 pledges will receive the first batch of boards to be completed in 6 weeks.

So you don't want to build your own PC.

We have you covered. We are offering Limited Edition complete models.


With aluminum chassis that you fall in love with at first glance, this chassis will be engraved your your name and the serial number of the Z77MX-QUO-AOS installed. This is definitely the ultimate collector's item.


The Future

We embrace challenges. This Kickstarter is a stepping stone to creating graphics cards, and more motherboards; such as ones 2 CPU and miniITX configurations. With community support and the spirit of Kickstarter we can accomplish this and much more.

The motherboard is created by a very reputable company, Gigabyte USA as an exclusive OEM project. The prototype and UEFI BIOS has all been completed. We just need to go into production. The first 100 boards will be sent via air freight in 4 weeks the remainder via sea freight.
