Pros:

Was very easy to install in my first build. Started right up. Liked the way the CPU cover is designed to pop off as you close the lever. BIOS was super easy to deal with. No problem with loading drivers, etc. Included software is kinda cool, but a little clunky and weird. Haven't played with it that much yet, but automatic OC function seems to work perfectly. Don't think I've scratched the surface yet of all this board can do...looks like a lot of upside potential is built in.

Cons:

Aluminum I/O shield is almost foil thin and has annoying prongs that make the board a bit hard to insert. Board is short and has only six mounting holes so it hangs over the middle row of MB stand-offs about 2 inches...not a big deal except that the power connector is on the overhanging portion so you need to be careful to support the board while connecting power. PCI-Ex slot seemed slightly crooked versus the case mount, but that seems more likely to be a case construction issue...went right in anyway with just a little torque and works perfectly.

Other Thoughts:

Was initially a little disappointed that this board only has 2 SATA III connections, but I knew that going in. The price of this board was low enough that I couldn't justify upgrading to one of the fancier boards. Poking around the Newegg site I found I can add a PCI-Express card with additional internal SATA III ports, so that's a nice option for future expansion to a very nice and reasonably priced basic MB
