Separate num keypad

Pros: -Air & water cooled MOBO options
-Sleek looks with LEDs, lighted ROG emblem; superb looks
-Accepts higher MEM clocks
-WiFi & Bluetooth
-Multiple inputs; USB 3.0. 2.0, eSata, Audio, HDMI, DisplayPort, etc...
-Everything seemed to work perfect when installing and connecting to my Thermaltake Level 10GT, no unused connections in case with this MOBO like other builds I've done...
-FIRST TIME BOOT!!!
Cons: -Instructions did not advice to install WiFi/Bluetooth BEFORE installing MOBO in case...I completely forgot about this and had a hard time installing after. The instructions go into this AFTER it explains installation of everything else and MOBO into case...
-Can't think about anything else...
-Tried to OC a couple of times but did not suceed, haven't really gone into it as much but will.
Other Thoughts: This is a great board that looks great too. First time boot to install Win7. Will try OC'ing my Ivy Bridge CPU which I'm sure I can and can find info on forums about how-to...
Pros: -Good looks
-Separate numeric keypad
-Ability to turn off Windows key (not tested)
-LED Light accents nice
-Keyboard feel good (have had better)
Cons: -Forward slash with question mark key not working!!!
-Backspace is too small to what I'm used to
-Did I mention one key is not working (question mark, question mark, question mark)
Other Thoughts: The keyboard is nice and went with my computer theme (kinda); had not tested because I was AWAY...as in Far East away and so I built my PC in the last month or so...so I had no idea which parts would work...so far this is the only problem I've had...(crossing fingers)...
One egg for product because non-working keys in a KEYBOARD is highly unacceptable!
