Summary: This is a replacement board of my Crosshair IV Extreme with built in Bluetooth which is still running I built my wife a desktop and installed that board in to a Raidmax mid tower case it fit really tight I had to force it in to fit. I put this new Board into my Cooler Master HAF 942 for about 3 weeks then I just bought the Thermaltake Level 10 GT "Snow Edition" In both cases the fit was Great plenty of room and lots of great features like my old board.
Summary: WOW. Spend a little money for a huge return. Tons of features, good documentation, nicely (protectively) packaged including all the bells & whistles; with extra bells & whistles available for download. I've never had a bad ASUS board and this one is keeping that trend going. I've heard stories about poor interaction between AMD/ASUS/ATI etc. but never experienced them. I'm using 2 older ATI HD4870's and running them Crossfire; so I'm using all 3 and have had no issues.
Summary: I have been an ASUS user for some time now, and I have purchased a number of ASUS CrossHair motherboards over the last few years. And while many view this line of motherboards as a gamer's dream board, I on the other hand do not purchase this line for that purpose. I like robust computing, and the CrossHair series has provided that for me, and since I am an AMD fan, I have not been disappointed.
Summary: I was told these run hot? I will be posting after the build. The board came early and looks new. I do not foresee any problems. I will post later on the build! I learned that Intel builds are able to use G. Skill Triadent 2400MHz Dual Channel DRAM more efficient and AMD's will have to down clock to 1866MHz! Sucks and if I had known this I would have built on a LGA motherboard! Live and learn.
Summary: This motherboard is well built. The manual covers everything you need to have a build up and running in no time. They give you more cables than you could possibly need. But let's face it, if you are looking at this motherboard it is because of its capabilities. This motherboard will handle CrossFire or SLI and the bridge for both is included, USB 3.0, 32GB of RAM, and the built in audio is surprisingly good.
Summary: One of the best motherboard out there. Its robust and loaded with features. Everything you want and more. My one and only criticism on the design is they should have moved the mem slots just a little bit farther from the CPU as a large CPU sync crowds the closest ram slots. but its only an issue if you are using 4 sticks.
Asus ROG series sets the bar really high for motherboards.

Summary: Pros: -UEFI Bios -Convenient CMOS reset button -Diagnostic lights/ Digit display to see if there is anything wrong with a particular component. -Easy to overclock the CPU through the Ai Suite software -Nice Solid design Cons: -None so far Overall, I do recommend this product to computer enthusiasts that like to do overclocking in general.
