ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

Pros: The bios are extremely clean and the board looks amazing.

Cons: One thing that ASUS doesn't tell you is that the i7 4790 doesn't work with this board out of the box you have to upgrade the bios first. So if you are like me and didn't know that then you have to take your board somewhere to have them update your bios unless you have another processor that you can throw in your board. Also I have Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 memory and for some reason it will not run all 4 sticks (4 x 16) I got the board to run two of the sticks, but that leaves me with 8gigs instead of 16.

Other Thoughts: I had a gigabyte board before this one and it had some of the sata ports go out after a couple years....I wish i wouldve just bought the same exact board i had before. I can't believe the headache this thing has given me. If it says it runs the processor it should run it out of the box and i have never in my life not had memory be plug and play. I looked up their approved memory list and mine was on there with the only differenc being my model number had a b at the end of the number and it didnt have one in their approved list.
