Pros:

I own this awesome motherboard. If you go any higher on the price tag, you're not going to buy an 1155. You're going to go for the 2011. For this price bracket, this motherboard is the king. My i7 Ivy Bridge 3770k runs at 4.6 GHz overclocked with pretty close to the factory overclock settings programmed into the BIOS on this board. They're pretty accurate,t hough a little "conservative" toward the higher voltage side. It comes with 4.6 GHz programmed at 2.30, but mine will actually run at 2.05. I run at 2.15 for guaranteed stability, and temps only 73° at the absolute maximum with a Corsair H100 cooler. I have a RAID10 configuration working marvelously. Please be aware that with RAID10 you are using two SATA II ports and two SATA III ports, so you are limited to 3.0 GB/s. I get all of that with my platter HDDs. If you put SSDs on the SATA II ports, you won't get the maximum out of them so be warned in that respect. As for the rest of the board, there are plenty of fan plugins (8), but one of them is taken up by the built-in mosfet heatsink/fan. (Awesome!) The PCI 3.0 slots are well spaced. Any graphics card on the market will fit on this board of course - it's Extended ATX after all. Lots more features I didn't even mention here.

Cons:

Limited to SATA II in bootable RAID exceeding 2 drives.
