Pros: Pros: The Motherboard is loaded many great features like PCIe 3.0, Fast charge USB (it actually works), Stable, Fast, Cool, 4 SATA 6.0's and I very nice BIOS interface
Cons: The first Mobo was DOA. The RMA process worked but now the second one has died also. Other cons, the second board was recertifed and sent in a box listing 3 yr warranty whereas my original board came with a 5 yr warranty. I hope the RMA goes well and that I get good mobo this time otherwise I may have to explore other options which would be unfortunate as the feature set for the board is really nice. Feature wise the only thing that could be better is if it had more fan headers to spport all the fans in my case.
Other Thoughts: Intel Core I5 2500K
Corsair Vengence 16 GB RAM
Corsair Hydro H60 Cooler
Thermaltake "Black Widow" 850w PSU
EVGA NVidia 570 HD
Samsung 470 SSD
Seagate Baracuda 1 TB drive
Samsung Blu Ray DVD drive
Pros: - PCI-E 3.0 and Ivy Bridge compatibility
-UEFI BIOS is well layed out
-Excellent overclocking capability
-Heatsinks are compact and don't get in the way
-Comes with expansion USB 3.0 bracket in addition to the integrated ones for 4 total ports.
Cons: All these great features are of little value if the board does function. As many people have posted good reviews I suspect that I got one of the rare bad boards. My board keeps powering on and off and never posts. I stripped it down to just the mobo, psu and heatsink fan and also swapped out the psu and fan with the same outcome.READ FULL REVIEW
