Pros:

Everything. Great Value! Love the bios, feels weird to use the mouse in the bios.

Cons:

PITA to get up and running.
My comments below will save you the PITA part if followed correctly.

Other Thoughts:

Heres how to save your self hair loss and hrs of screaming at the Mobo.
1: If you get the CPU light or Mem Light or any other light on the mobo lit, prob just need to update firmware. I had CPU and Mem light no post no beeps. D/L latest bios update and flashed, instantly resolved those issues.
Be sure to read manual, you will need to rename the update file name, make sure psu has power but do not have power on to update bios.

Make sure when installing windows from USB you do not use the 3.0usb port. Install will drive you crazy for drivers and you'll be left stumped. Use 2.0 ports. (don't forget from ports are usb)

Next headache is raid. Be sure to set raid in bios but do not install more than one HD unti windows is fully installed. Be sure to use driver " Version 3.5.0.1092&3.5.0.109 " from asus website. 3.6 version has known issue (per asus tech rep)
When windows shows no hard drive to install to, click "load driver" and point to 3.5 driver you copied to your thumb drive.
(if installing 64bit OS, 64 bits raid driver may not show drive and you may have to use 32bit) After choosing 64bit driver, wait a few seconds and see if hard drive appears, it does not show up instantly after completing load driver. If it doesn't show after 15 seconds then use 32bit driver again wait 15 seconds HD should appear)

After windows installs, install additional hard drives and setup raid in bios (ctrl+i). Should be good to go from there.

Don't forget to format all your drives, especially SSD's before trying to install windows.

Auto Tune feature for me and others I see likes to hang.
When you run it it will OC things very stable and restart pc. At windows login the Autotune will reappear and give you a choice to do further test for more OC'ing. This is where it seems to hang if you do more testing. If this happens and the pc doesn't restart with-in a mins or so, STOP it. You HSF guys could fry your cpu.

Other than that I think all else is business as normal.
