Summary: Pros: Awesome performance. Many options to work with. Nice color scheme. Easy to set up. Cons: Memory slots too close to the CPU. Makes it difficult to use a high end air cooler solution. Had to remove two sticks of memory to fit an air cooler on the CPU. Not good! Now have brand new memory I can't use = wasted money. The drive connectors in my case we so close to the drive bays I had to use needle nose plyers to connect the cables.
If you're a gamer looking to build a beast PC I'd get this.

Excerpt: In my opinion the Crosshair IV Extreme is one of the best motherboards on the market. You definitely get your moneys worth when you buy and install this motherboard. It's perfect for gaming, media, and pretty much anything else you can think of. It's what I like to call "future proof" in that I can later on put in other optimal parts without having to buy tons of other parts.
Pros: It's a builder's board . It can handle anything . It's 'future proof . '
Cons: Only issue I had was with the Intel Gigabyte LAN port, but that was fixed with driver updates .
