Summary: The performance is fantastic,once I had my components installed I was able to get my i3770k stable at 4.6ghz on the first try using mostly default bios settings. However, I use a Noctua nh-D14 cooler and my R280x video card in the first pci-e lane sits very close to the edge of the cooler (so much so that I have to use a thin ruler to depress the release switch to remove the video card).
Great Board with many features and great for the overckocking enthusiast, but be aware of ram compatibility....

Summary: As I said Great Board with many features and overclocks like a dream, but purchased this along 32 gb 8x4 corsair dominator LP ram and had nightmares with a dreaded code 20 and code 55 with the dram red light on.... My board sometimes would post and sometimes it wouldn't, Im not 100% sure its a compatibility issue but I came to the hypothesis by searching google for the codes and seeing the common denominator...
Received a dead board, but my replacement is flying
12 March 2013
Pros: This is a board that I consider to be on the bleeding edge (ahead of cutting edge), in terms of what can be offered with a motherboard. Now that I have my replacement board (first board was a dud), this thing is the best board I have ever owned. This is my first ROG board, and all consumers should at least consider ROG products from ASUS. This board should win the major awards.
Cons: I knocked an egg off for receiving a dead board, and having a tough time getting an expedited RMA through ASUS. I actually had to wait three weeks (for more stock) to get the board from ASUS and now that I have it, it's great.
Summary: Love the board. Very easy to OC. Lots of options in the UEFI BIOS. Lots of options on what you want to do with this board. My one dislike is the AsMedia controller. There are no RAID options so only RAID with Intel. Yes limitation of Intel spec. But other boards got around this and from ASUS too. So why not here? Afterall this IS an Extreme. I so wanted SSD RAID 0 onto Intel 6gb and HDD 6GB RAID on Asmedia. Still fabulous board. Worth the money.
Summary: Nice motherboard, however: It is quite small compared to some of the others making fitting aftermarket air cooler impossible as the heat sink (by the cpu slot) interferes with the docking mechanism only allowing the stock cooling air cooler to be fitted. Only a main concern if overclocking is the goal, Liquid cooling most likely won't have the same problem. Also fitting the wireless adapter took longer than normal due to its incredibly small attaching leads.
Summary: This motherboard has it all, Bluetooth, wifi, thunderbolt, usb3..... Very easy to overclock! My only criticism is that the additional 4 sata3 ports on the separate marvel chip cannot be used for raid, limiting you to 2 sata3 and 2 sata2 ports run by the the intel chipset for raid. With SSD's and max performance that really leaves you with just the 2 intel sata3 ports to play with.
Summary: "Comprei a antena para instalar em uma área externa, ligado a um access point. Meu sinal estava em 14% com a antena normal. Subiu para pouco mais de 40% com a troca da antena. Uma solução simples que vale o preço que custa.
