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.
I love this Board!!! but don't buy from this seller

Summary: You can see and feel the quality! It just looks like a hard worker. The bios is very easy. The board was easy to install. Looks absolutely killer and it runs so fast!!! I put a 3.4 I7 in it and 32 gigs of viper. With the 6,0 sata drive it takes about 10 seconds to be in windows and surfing or gaming. The book is good the drivers installed easily, and there was plenty of youtube videos on it for review. I would endorse and buy this board many times over again.
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: 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.
Summary: Great motherboard for those who need less than an e-ATX. Pros: Easy i5 2500k overclock to 4.6 (literally 2 settings in the BIOS). This overclock allows the processor to drop to 1.6 Ghz when at idle/non-demanding tasks and then throttle up to 4.6 under load. Great entry level board, Intel Gigabit LAN, Realtek audio drivers on the Supreme Xi Fi chip, easy overclocking (CPU and RAM), on-board display allows for easy troubleshooting, beautiful design, price should be...

Summary: I discovered this board after a review by Tom's Hardware and their OEM liquid cooling article. A number of other enthusiast sites use standard ATX in most of their reviews, so this caught my attention. The premise was; if you don't need a dozen expansion slots, but a few slots for high quality items, this board gives you everything. The added bonus was all the freed up space to run a liquid cooling setup all on the inside of a Mid-Tower.
