Bad to the Bone 02/18/2014
This motherboard is absolute perfection. Everything from the look, BIOS, drivers and software installed perfectly on Windows 8.1. The BIOS options are vast, but very easy to understand. They can also be set from the ROG Suite inside of Windows. The amount of control over your CPU, RAM and Fans is unbelievable.
The ROG Display interface is a very nice touch. Great for a quick glance to see where to with your CPU Temp, CPU Fan Speed and it has the ability to override the current settings on the fly.
The only real complaint that I have is the placement of the SATA Ports. In the Corsair Carbide Case the bottom row of ports is completely blocked. I know that this isn't exactly a motherboard issue, but it seems that it would probably be a common issue on most cases.
The ROG Game first while looking pretty is pretty well useless.
Definitely a highly recommended motherboard if your willing to spend the money. You won't be disappointed.
