This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Supports PCIe 3.0, USB 3.0 and ECC memory. Works with Windows 7 and 8 (upgrade the BIOS for Win8) pretty well. Virtualization using Hyper-V with Windows 8 is awesome! Much better than with Virtual PC in Windows 7.
Cons: This board kept loosing my USB devices (including my keyboard and mouse) and PCIe soundcard. I upgraded the BIOS and this helped.
Other Thoughts: I'm a software developer and wanted a system that was stable. I am using an Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 processor (liquid cooled) with 16GB of ECC memory, AMD Radeon 7770 (with three monitors), 500GB HDD and 250GB SSD drive powered by a 750Watt power supply. Its definately is a small power house but the issues with the USB ports not working properly was a BIG setback. Upgrading the BIOS helped tremendously. I would do this right away if you purchase the board.READ FULL REVIEW
