5 out of 5 eggsGreat, and easy to setup

Pros: Great sound and system setup.

Cons: Don't know if PCI slot has an issue as I can't get an answer from board or PCI card manufacturer, or Newegg. Due to issues with wireless card, I would suggest buying the board with built in wireless.

3 out of 5 eggsgreat board, REBATE IS A SCAM!

Pros: great board, went together and worked on the first shot. everything is very intuitive and the things runs fast

Cons: i took the time and effort to fill out the rebate info. filled out the online form, printed a form, put my ups, invoice andevything asked for, sent it cerified. THEN I GET AN EMAIL STATING THAT THEY NEVER RECEIVED ANY OF THE 3 REBATES I MAILED IN. THIS IS A SCAM!! AND MANUFACTUERERS LIKE ASUS AND THERMALTAKE DONT CARE ONE IOTA THAT THERE CUSTOMERS ARE GETTING RIPPED OFF BY A REBATE SCAM COMPANY IN TEXAS

Other Thoughts: THE REBATE COMPANY HANDLING ALL THE CLAIMS FOR ASUS AND THERMALTAKE IS A TOTAL SCAM

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice, well-built motherboard

Pros: I thought the BIOS settings and utilities were great. The board was very easy to set up and use.

Cons: None so far, it's very good.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely purchase this again. It's a great motherboard and is another great product from ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsClearly a higher-end product

Pros: - Plug and play LAN with Windows 10, nice not to have to bootstrap that with a drive.
- Impressive BIOS and tweaking utilities.
- Dead simple overclocking. My mother could probably overclock this system without frying it.
- Front panel block! I love these things. Great for sausage fingers.

Cons: - The SATA ports. Oh dear, the SATA ports.
- Board arrived bent, concave. Was crossing my fingers during install.
- Boot error LEDs are nice, but not terribly visible nor intuitive in my rig. I'd rather have a seven-segment display in a corner or even speaker error codes.
- I/O shield didn't fit great, but are there any that really do?

Other Thoughts: I don't usually buy the higher-end motherboards but this one was on sale plus had a mail-in rebate. I didn't know system tweaking had gotten to this level of detail--if Newegg still did reviewer tech levels I would have docked myself a point. To give you an idea of how impressed I was, this is the first motherboard install I've done where I needed to connect my mouse for the BIOS. Power saving features in the software are also neat. Maybe this board will pay for itself in electricity costs in 20 years.

I'll cover my primary complaint, though, and that's the SATA ports. For whatever reason, they aren't vertical. They face away from the end of the board, opposite the I/O. If my hard drive bay was just a couple of millimeters closer, I'd be shopping for special angled SATA cables right now. One of my cables had a connector that was too long, but fortunately one of the included cables fit. Quite the challenge getting them installed.

Driver installation wasn't bad, though. I laughed at the provided disc, as this is the first mobo I've bought without an ancient IDE port for my old DVD-R drive. Maybe some day flash drives will get cheap enough that we can get drivers on a USB stick. Fortunately, I didn't have to bootstrap my system with LAN drivers as the adapter was functional on first boot. Grabbing the drivers from the ASUS website is easy enough, though I found it odd that the MEI drivers weren't included with the utility suite.

In all, a smooth setup. I'm not an absolute optimum performance guy, so overclocking with provided utilities was a breeze. Finished up in less time than I anticipated.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mobo!

Pros: Has all the bells and whistles I needed for my rig.

Cons: The booklet was wrong when telling me what slot to put the 2 sticks of ram in to get to a post. It said to put the ram in the grey slots. But that didn't work. So after testing it in the black slots I got it to post. For that -1. But still a good board.

Other Thoughts: Does what it's needed. And Asus has the best boards on the market.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent quality & features, could have better voltage settings

Pros: Excellent feature set, good price. The board is fairly attractive and professional looking and makes no egregious errors. BIOS is VERY easy to navigate and very well made. No quality issues with my unit so far, asus also provides a handy DVD to install drivers, software, etc.

Cons: Voltage settings could be a bit better. Offset and adaptive voltage modes (after setting an overclock) tends to have some voltage spikes that makes me uncomfortable.
