Received a dead board, but my replacement is flying

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: 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.
Excerpt: Pour machine de jeu pour des jeux solo, pourquoi pas du wifi pour le reste de l'utilisation. Pour les lan, non. Reste que j'ai joué pas mal avec le wifi (+ 5 ms de ping par rapport à un rj45), et j'avais moins de latence que d'autres en rj45. Donc bon, pourquoi pas mais bon pour jouer en wifi sa ne sert a rien je n'en vois pas l'utiliter surtout si on l'overcloke mais malgre sa tres bonne carte mere haute gamme
