Pros: It is all I wanted in a 2011 board. SSD Cashing is a major plus. No problem at all with G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB 2133 ram being recognized after changing settings in the bios.
Bios is convenient and easy to use. I like clicking with the mouse more than I like using function keys. All the tweak switches are there if you are so inclined, but the software provided with overclock for you. Works like a charm. Have a Intel Core i7-3820 OC'd to 5.2 GHZ at 42 Celsius with water cooling.
Installation was easy and it booted first try. Installed Windows 8 64 Bit and it installed enough drivers to get it into Windows, but then you have to upgrade the drivers that are easily available on the ASUS website or accessed thru the ASUS update tool provided.
All in all a very satisfying build. Fastest machine I have ever built....and I have built a few...
Cons: The Sealed box was missing the back panel USB 2.0, the USB 3.0, and the Digital out brackets (most likely they were all in the same plastic baggie I didn't get. Newegg is working on the problem. May come back and update to 5 eggs if/when I get those parts. Only worth an egg for the inconvenience. I have it up and running, so hopefully I wont have to tear it apart to RMA the board for some missing brackets.
Other Thoughts: Only worth an egg for the inconvenience. I have it up and running, so hopefully I wont have to tear it apart to RMA the whole thing for some missing brackets.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has plenty of room for future growth. Modular plugs to increase the number of connectors you need is a big plus. Quiet and provides power accurately for overclocking needs.
Cons: It's very long from face to tail. Had to remove my Hard Drive fan to fit it in.READ FULL REVIEW
