See, tech specs... Everything about this board is awesome. It has everything you can ask for in a high end mother board and it's mITX!!! Over clocking is fantastic. love the ROG colors and BIOS interface. Boots insanely fast with my samsung 830 pro SSD. RAM Disk! BRAVO ASUS, well done!
Sata port placement, they're behind the memory and pci-e slot so cable routing is not as pretty as it could be. The wireless/m.2 daughter board doesn't feel solid after mounting. It has one screw to mount to the mother board and one screw to mount to the back plate. With both in place it still doesn't feel stable. I won't be using the wireless or the m.2 port for at least a little while so I won't dock an egg.
One other thing I don't like about the wireless is that it has wires that need to run along the back plate which adds more wires inside the case. While to some this may be a benefit by being able to run it to a different location inside the case I don't like the look so I will not use this card until I decide to upgrade to an m.2 SSD.
I have water cooled mine with the red bitspower water block and it looks fantastic.
