Summary: This board is awesome. It's Micro ATX but pack a punch! I have a CrossfireX configuration and the cards don't get too hot (just one of them maxes at 70 or so, in a tropical climate). This little board have great overclocking capabilities and everything you could want on a modern motherboard.
Summary: I'd recommend staying away from ASUS. Their quality is in decline, and their customer service (which used to be excellent) was eerily similar to every Dell CS encounter I have had. My motherboard died after 3 months of good use. Asus said they would send RMA form, but it didn't come. I called and they said to wait a bit longer for it. It still never came. Called again, and they told me they messed up and would be sending out the form within the hour.
Summary: I have had this board about 7 months. The first board Amazon shipped to me was not DOA, but shortly into the build it wouldn't post. I was never sure if it was the power supply or the Board so I did an RMA of both and Amazon was happy to help. 3 weeks ago I went from a HDD OS to a SDD OS. The install went very smooth until I decided to update the BIOS from AI Suite as part of the upgrade (BIOS 3402). The BIOS supposedly flashed ok and on restart the real trouble began.
Summary: Nice, very nice... One of the more powerful Intel chipsets with the most powerful Intel processor series all have been merged onto a small 24x24cm mATX motherboard (this form factor fits perfectly in any chassis of course). The combination of the two together with the ROG GENE build are incredible. Say you wanted to build a tiny small carry around LAN party box... well that's where this puppy comes into play.
Summary: Everything went smoothly with the installation and I've had no issue since. I'm not sure the Virtu GPU "visualization" does much and the software from Lucid seems buggy but that's a minor point. I've had no problems with component compatibility nor any issue with drivers for the integrated peripherals. I'm very happy with this motherboard.
Summary: This mobo is a blessing. It's so easy to set up everything, it literally does it for you. Not only is it easy but I really gotta say I love the performance of this mobo. It looks amazing, well designed, and the overclocking setting are supherb! I'm so glad I did research and read review after review and finally came to this one because it has worked flawlessly so far.
Summary: I am bumping up my rating, because to be fair the motherboard does look great and has many interesting features such as game first and allows you to easily OC the processor, they also have replied promptly to my thread on their forums. However it doesn't look like I am the only one having problems, and looks like there are some problems with at least some of the boards from what I gather looking at the forums, which I understand is normal on electronic parts.
