Summary: Product worked as expected. Daughter was delighted. Did lots of research & comparing before purchase. Read lots of review, both good and bad. Great functionality and technology for the price. Read some complaints in other reviews. They seem to be based on expectations.
Summary: The board itself has a really nice look and lots of overclocking features however I did run into a few problems with it. With customization and all those options for the overclocking, there are also a lot of drivers that must be installed properly as well.
Summary: Awesome board but if you're going to stick to an i5-2500K then don't go beyond BIOS 2302. This board easily overclocks my i5-2500K to 4.6ghz offset (-.030) and even 4.8ghz! the only reason I don't stay at 4.8ghz and even attempt higher clock speeds is because I only have an H50 cooler.
Summary: When I received this board there was a post it note on the board that said please test this board. Aparently it was not tested, when I got it, the board did not work. The power supply would dim and Asus said after troubleshooting that I needed a bigger power supply.
Summary: If you like to overclock, and you are a real gaming enthusiasts, this is the board for you. I am using a i7 2700k sandy bridge stock at 3.8 ghz, but jacked up to 5.2 gHz. With the right cpu cooling I think I can get 5.7 out of it.
