Pros: Looks nice, LED Q-CODE display... you WILL need this ( read Cons), every fan headder is PWM, Easy BIOS Updating, 3 way xfire/sli ready, Start/Reset/Go/Boot into BIOS/Clear BIOS buttton a assett, 8 SATA 6G ports, 1 year free Kaspersky AV
Cons: Comes with free GREASY FINGERPRINTS on CMOS battery and PCB (indicating VERY POOR QUALITY CONTROL), No security tape or sealing process for box-no guarantee someone was not already in the packaging before you get it. As others have reviewed BIOS is buggy at the best of times, somewhat got better after BIOS update, 10%+ BIOS fails to load mouse or keyboard or both upon boot from full shut down; reboot or manual replugging necessary, if you leave a controller plugged in during boot ROG firmware update loop will occur, 80% wake from sleep mode success rate with WIN 8.1 (fast boot makes these symptoms worse), BIOS freezes or goes blank screen occasionally, USB 3.0 Charging stops during sleep mode... even my Budget Giggabyte UD3 supports sleep mode chargeing. Thermal paste stuck to board upon receiving, included windows BIOS software is buggy and useless. Newegg raised the price so they could call it a sale. Free Kaspersky AV software has to be DL from ASUS website-should have been included on software Disk
Other Thoughts: Really, really dissapointed with this "premium board".
ASUS has dropped the ball regarding Quality control.
This is my 2nd and last ASUS board Guaranteed.
probably great for overclocking but certainly unreliable as a stable bootable pc with win 8.1 (advertised as 8.1 compatable)
visit ASUS forum for more reviews about how buggy their BIOS really is for this board and all the incompatability issues before purchasing this board; you need to know
