Pros: Good BIOS interface. Working well since I solved the problem discussed in the 'Other Thoughts' section.
Other Thoughts: I replaced the motherboard in my rig with this one, as well as a new Intel i7 4770k CPU and a EVGA GTX770OC GPU board. I moved over my memory sticks which were two G.Skill RIP F3-12800CL8D-4GBXM (2X2G) and two of the same type (2X4G) for a total of 12G. After Win 7 installation, I had constant blue screen crashes, programs and games freezing, not getting more the ten minutes before a crash. Switching out the GPU with my old 570, switching the GPU to another PCI slot, updating the BIOS and all drivers did not help. I ran Memtest on all sticks and got no errors. Finally I read a forum for ASUS motherboards and a poster said he had the same problem and solved it by only using two memory sticks. He claimed the the memory controller chip has to work harder to run four sticks. I pulled to smaller memory sticks out of the rig and the problem seems solved. I do not know if this is actually an issue with the motherboard harware, its drivers or the memory modules themselves. I had no trouble with these memory sticks in my previous rig for two years which used an ASUS P8 P67-M PRO motherboard, Intel i7 2500k and ASUS GTX570 GPU. Still I wanted to describe the problem and its solution so other users will not go though the grief I went through if they have this problem. Trying to get help deciphering the Windows crash logs through Windows Help was a waste of time.READ FULL REVIEW
