Pros: Reliable, high performance, layout is convenient for most cases.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Board gave me 0 problems during install and initial fire up. Has been working well for 5+ weeks with Windows 7 - 64bit OS. Applications and entertainment have been fast and trouble free so far. Board temps with Cooler Master CPU cooling and high air flow case have been lower than previous dual core set up.
Comments: I dont mind flashing a BIOS totake care of small problems and I don't mind having to play with BIOS settings to get hardware all playing together nicely BUT having to change memory voltage because they are speced wrong to begin with and a safe BIOS setting that doesn't allow the system to boot consistently are design flaws! Together with inept Tech. support gets this MOBO a 2. If tweaking for 8 hours to get a system to boot consistently is what you live for then go for it. The replacement board from Gigabyte booted right after assembly and gets better with tweaks instead of progressivly unstable like the ASUS. Good luck.
