5 out of 5 eggs Best Mobo for Ivy Bridge and any LGA 1155 08/29/2012

This review is from: ASUS Maximus V EXTREME LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Lots of features, including excellent connectivity and versatility with ASUS AI Suite, easy for newbies and overwhelming for pros to use. Looks great also, with ROG cole scheme and tall heats inks around the CPU socket. Another minor plus is the excellent wireless adapter, which is a pain to install in a case but provides great range and connectivity!

Cons:

Without an update in the BIOS after you shut down your PC for the first time (at least mine) became very unstable and laggy. I tried everything until I updated to the latest BIOS and it got better and sexier! Another issue was that the first PCIe lane was not working properly with my GTX-670, and the LED on the mobo would display the code for that. Simply switching to another lane solved the issue, and I can play all games perfectly!
