Summary: This motherboard works great in my Media Computer using an OS of Windows 7 Ultimate and 8 GIG's of RAM. This computer is used only for converting auto books to MP3 files using Creator NXT (2013) .
Pros: It's a nice mobo and works extremely well. I love the directkey button...sends the shutdown signal to windows, then press again and BAM! right in BIOS! Also a displayport, which is why I chose the Pro over the normal one (for eyefinity).
Cons: None of the OC utilities would get me anything stable, and I turned off a lot of the advertised features because if you OC, a lot of the time, they'll just murder your stability. It can hold OC's like a mad beast, but expect high levels of col whine if you push it too hard (~4800MHz)
Summary: When I first started putting my rig together I wanted a whole different platform. So...this board stepped with my purchase of the 5800K A10 AMD processor. The board is awesome for tweaking and setting your system for all types of speeds and cooling options. I don't think I've gotten through all the buttons. This board is not for the light of heart in computers. You need to know what you are doing in synchronizing RAM to processor ratio.
