Summary: i would love to give it 5 stars, but i get the impression that the hardware guys know there stuff, as for software and bios updates well i have had allot of issues, going back and forth for bois versions and having to install another boards software to use with this for a time, over all i expected more refinement from a ROG board.... on the software side. but as for today they worked out there software issues and it is in fact a rock solid board.
Summary: This board probably does more than the average user will ever need and I am in between a power user and average. The extras though that I will use, such as usb 3.0 and onboard HD audio make this a great gaming and htpc board that requires very little unexpected add ons to be necessary.
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: Now, in fairness, I originally ordered this board as an open box special from another site. However, the board wouldn't boot with RAM in dual channel mode. Looking up the error code, this isn't unheard of, so I'm going 4 stars instead of 5. Still, I immediately placed an order for a new board, this time from Amazon, and couldn't be happier. Feature loaded in a small form factor and stable as a rock at 4.8.
Summary: I had a Micro ATX computer case lying around for almost two years and had my eye on the Ceton Quad-Tuner HD card since it came out. As a Maximum PC subscriber I keep up on the latest in computing and when I saw the Z68 chipset come out I was really interested. I started researching and comparing in pursuit of building an HTPC with the Ceton card as the cornerstone.
Summary: Well well well... This is a great motherboard still using it havent had any problems for now (2 month since purchase). It is a powerful motherboard but there are better out there for around the same price. I had previously bought the Asus P8p67 which customers had a 50/50 chance of getting a faulty. However if your looking to buy a motherboard I would wait around for the Asus P9X79 as this is going to be awesome.
