Decent board, but buyer beware, many on-board issues 8/24/2017 3:21:20 PM

Pros: -Red and black design matches my case/peripherals. Looks sleek.
-Tons of rear USB 3.0 ports
-Boots very fast on an SSD even with Fast Boot option disabled.

-UEFI BIOS: The UEFI BIOS for this board is pretty mediocre. While the style is nice, the menus aren't at all intuitive and are very difficult to navigate even with the manual (which itself is ambiguous). Settings for things such as CPU options, graphical interface choice and SATA connection options are all found under areas that you wouldn't be able to figure out unless you systematically went through each section and memorized their locations. Loading simple tings like XMP profiles is fine, but attempting something such as overclocking can be a nightmare and the board comes with very few helpful options in that endeavor. Overall the UEFI BIOS is a mess and could use a complete overhaul.

-Sometimes unreliable front port connections.

-Board Size: Board is slightly smaller than standard ATX boards. This can be good or bad depending on your case/situation. In my case it makes the board location somewhat awkward in my ATX full tower, but the size allows an opening in the back more for cable management, which is convenient.

-SATA ports in awkward position. The SATA ports are directly across from the first PCIe port. With the length of most modern gaming GPUs, once you have installed a GPU it is basically impossible to reach or tend to your SATA port. If you want to change out a cable you will have to remove the GPU first. Very inconvenient.

-Killer e2200 LAN NIC: I am sure you can tell by from the other reviews from this board and others using this LAN that the Killer LAN is pretty terrible overall. The included software suite is very unreliable and buggy so it's best to disable it at startup. For the longest time I had a very unstable internet connection, which I eventually resolved by changing a registry value related to the LAN NIC. If decent LAN NIC and metering software is a given for you, then this board is probably not for you.

TL;DR: Decent board, but buyer beware, there are MANY issues associated with it.

Overall Review: I personally would not recommend this motherboard, but if you are willing to deal with several issues, then this board may be for you.

Purchased 4/25/2014 Died 2/3/2016 2/4/2016 4:07:38 PM

Pros: -no lag, great quality, pure performance

Cons: -Mysterious Death in the middle of Idle use. It just died mysteriously. No blue screen, just straight to death. Virus? Chipset? Power Surge? EMP? It just silently died while browsing YouTube... I thought it was a power outage before I realized what happened :(

Awesome UEFI bios 4/16/2015 6:40:54 AM

Pros: A plethora of SATA3 ports, supports the latest and greatest tech at the time of purchase. UEFI settings can be configured for really fast boot times.

Cons: The ethernet port / NIC. Spent a day or two trying to figure out why large file transfers over my intranet at home were so slow (8kbps). I have a gigE router, wireless AC all that good stuff. Transfers between other PCs on the network were full speed; any transfer through the NIC on this board was unbearable. After some research, it's the drivers that were performing QoS to allow for lower-ping in games. Fair enough, it's a gaming motherboard, but I had no way of turning it off without installing their software (from what I read on the net). Instead, I uninstalled the Killer e2200 (if my memory serves correctly) ethernet drivers and installed Qualcomm Atheros drivers which were compatible. Been running smooth ever since, but that initial hiccup with getting it setup really left a sour taste in my mouth.

Overall Review: If I didn't have the ethernet issue, I would give it 5 eggs.

Awful board. 11/10/2014 12:26:00 PM

Pros: Cheap board for what it offers. If the board lasts its a great deal. Neither of the ones I have did however.

Cons: Second board, both have failed. The first board never worked properly. The second one worked for a few days and then stopped working all together. I'll never buy this brand again.

Great mobo 11/9/2014 5:29:48 PM

Pros: -LOTS of features
-Has overclocking programs

Cons: -Smaller than ATX. This makes the balance of the board off, so when putting in the ram, I heard constant creaking
- only 3 PCI-e slots. this limits some PC fanatics to SLI/CF-ing from 4 cards to 3.

Overall Review: Some of the red components on this card is UV reactive.

Works great so far - the usb 2.0 10/27/2014 6:55:59 PM

Pros: Board supported what i want to do with it , easily manageable OC settings stock on the board with some really cool features

Cons: Pain to install and get running. Ive had the board for about 1.5 weeks right now and when i first recieved the board it wouldnt boot. So on a random pc site i found taking out a piece of RAM and putting in GPU would work , Voila couple hours trying to figure that out oh well onto the next issue. The usb 2.0 ports charge items but dont recognize anything, and not saying on screen they just wont be recognized at all, even on device manager . The only port that detects anything and works properly is the Killer fatal1ty mouse port. Buuut you cant do much with 1 port so im stuck :(

Overall Review: Would love the board if it worked properly
