Pros:

I chose this board for my very first high-powered gaming rig, and I'm well over satisfied with it. Runs very cool, fast USB 3.0 and don't get me started with the UEFI BIOS.

Cons:

After about a week or two the PCI slots started to act up. I had my AMD Radeon 7700 in and when I'd boot up it wouldn't even detect my monitors. To get it to work I'd have to mess with it a little bit. Like pull it out and put it back in a few times.

Other Thoughts:

I love the board, but the PCI slot problems are really aggravating me. I'm debating, and possibly going to switch to a new brand for a new motherboard.
