Pros:

I was looking for a board with room to upgrade. For this, I wanted:
1. 2 PCI-E slots running at x16
2. Plenty of overclocking headroom

This board supplies both of those things. The UEFI BIOS is both sleek and detailed, and overclocking this thing was a breeze, with plenty of unlockable features that give you lots of headroom, while also down-clocking CPU cores not in use to around 1.4 GHz when the applicable setting is enabled, saving me on my power bill.

The audio is also pretty slick. Once I started listening to music on my new PC, I haven't been able to go back to my laptop.

Cons:

Do note that when you tell the BIOS to automatically set RAM frequencies, it sets them to 1333 mhz regardless of the RAM. Was a simple change for it to properly run my 1600 mhz sticks.

Also, this is just a really minor OCD complaint, but the plastic sheet/outline thing that goes over the plugs in the back doesn't completely lie flush, and sticks out just a tad bit in the center. Doesn't effect anything in the slightest, just annoying in the most minimal way possible, and felt like mentioning it.

Other Thoughts:

A great and solid board for the money. Only time will tell how long it lasts me, but it's well built and competitive with higher-end boards for a great price.
