Makes for an easy first time build 02/26/2014
Well made, great looking, and with a lot of great features for the price. I like the "ok" lights on the board; even though none came on, it was reassuring to have them there during my first build. It may be a little thing, but I love that q-connector Asus provides. Lastly, I have to say that the UEFI bios is fantastic; sure beats the older style I'm used to messing with.
While it may have been the Gskill ram I used in my build, the board reported it at 1333 instead of 1866 and with incorrect timings. Easy to correct in the bios, however. And the I/O shield is, let us say, a step above junk.
This board and it's features made the build really smooth with the exception of the I/) shield. The bios is a dream to work with for just the basics as well as stuff like overclocking. I'm sure more expensive boards have things to offer for more extreme builds, but there's absolutely nothing lacking for myself.
