Pros: Everything works as expected. No issues setting it up and getting things working.
I like that it has Intel LAN and USB 3 components, not 3rd party chips.
Easy to use 1-click overclocking.
Support for M.2 drives (although I have not tried it). Future proof.
Cons: Only 2 case fan headers. Fixed with a simple fan splitter. It does have an OPT CPU Fan header (which I used), and an EXT Fan header (not used).
Only 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back. You could add an extra bracket if really needed. Plenty of internal headers.
The BIOS is kind of old. You should update to the newest one.
Other Thoughts: I use my PC's for desktop use (no gaming or overclocking). This motherboard works very well for me. Highly recommended.
A lot of good features without extra fluff.
I did not use the CPU installation "tool". It installs like any other CPU from the past.
The 3rd SATA port is labeled for OS Drive. I'm not sure what that means. I installed my boot drives on ports 1 and 2 "SATA Express" with no issues.
So far so good.
Pros: Works as expected.
Easily clocked to 2400 with my motherboard (Asus Z170 Pro), although I generally do not over clock.
Tested with Mem86+, and no errors.
Looks kind of cool.
Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this memory.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works. Very quiet video card.
Getting 7.4 on Windows Experience Index for both Graphics and Gaming Graphics.
I'm not a gamer so probably overkill for my needs.
Super fast shipping and delivery by Newegg.
