I like the uefi bios, very intuitive and easy to use. Easy to overclock ram and cpu, both automatically and manually. The power button header and reset button headers are positioned so that if you put them in the wrong way, it doesn't short your board, only connects the wrong GND pin, very good problem prevention there.
The CPU power header is a bit far away for a bottom-mounted PSU, but i'm guessing that's just the length of my own CPU power cord.
Also, using right-angle sata cords to plug into the board presents a space problem after the first one and you'll have to switch to straight or just reverse the cord if you have a hybrid.
