Pros: The q-connect (a standard asus feature) made connecting the case speaker, power switch, etc. much easier. Has connection for a switch (possibly your standard reset switch, if you like) that restarts the computer and launches the BIOS interface
Cons: A severe shortage of USB ports, making a header bracket (not included) a necessity Bios has crippling lag with keyboard or mouse, which makes it incredibly frustrating to use. (several seconds to respond to a keystroke, including using up or down to move through the list of settings) Included software won't install if you used a previous Asus board (possibly only for AMD-based boards) until you do a system refresh (in win 10) or clean install system is unstable when using included xtreme tuning utility
Other Thoughts: Ships separately (and days slower than) any other items you've ordered. I've built and upgraded several systems of the years, so I know there's always some pain and hiccups with a major upgrade like this one, but this is the worst experience I've ever had with an upgrade, and that includes a few dead-on-arrival items.
