Pros: The Bios that this board came with worked fine and so far F8 is working ok with 1 blue screen over a week ago. 3.0 PCI Express works great with Nvidia 760 & 770. The 3.0 USB's work great with external drives without disconnecting. Great Realtek 7.1 digital sound.
Cons: Bios version F3 caused a lot of blue screens and F7 worked fine for a while but then came hang ups. eSata's only work if Sata's 6 & 7 are not being used.
Other Thoughts: This motherboard came with the new socket size LGA 1150 and was made for the new 4th generation Intel I processors so most of us who purchased this board was used for testing so you'll find most of the fixes in the Bios updates. If everything is running find then don't bother with new Bios updates. The Bios that my board came with worked fine until I upgraded to F3 so if it isn't broke then don't fix it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've got nothing good to say about it. This system started crashing on 10-20-2013 and I've replaced everything but the motherboard. I tried running it with only the onboard graphics for 5 days with no crashes. I took out a Radeon 7850 12-14-13 with 2 crashes in 2 hours. On 12-19-13 I tried a EVGA Geforce GTX 760 brand new out of the box and it crashed within 2 hours of install. You can't play games with just the onboard graphics so I guess I'm just going to replace the motherboard with a different model.
Cons: Can't use the external esata's while using sata 6 & 7 on the board.
Other Thoughts: I hate this motherboard!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super fast processor!
Other Thoughts: Tried overclocking at 4.1Ghz and it blew 16Gbs of 2133Mhz ram so for me no more OC. It's more important that my computer runs than risking anymore un-needed crashing.READ FULL REVIEW
