Summary: I am quite impressed with this board! First my specs 4th gen I-7 intel processor geforce gtx760 video card 16GB of corsair ram 1TB hard drive along with a 265 GB SSD! This board has been running like a beast and I am truly loving it. If you have the budget I would definitely recommend this board!
Summary: Motherboard is near perfect in every way except for the faulty wireless adapter. From what I could gather on forums this piece is faulty for a LOT of people. The only way to know if it's faulty though is to install it, and once you get everything set up see if you can power it on. If you can't, there's a 90% chance that if you remove this part and try to power it on again that it'll power up.
Great board, needs a list of acceptable peripherals

Summary: Board works wonderfully, but rejects RAM from PNY that works just fine in other boards. Not a major flaw, but it would be nice to know what hardware it accepts and does not accept when purchasing.
Summary: I don't even know where to start talking about this board. First, it looks astonishing. I opened the box, and instantly I was in love with this thing. I can't tell how much the armor really adds to cooling, but for looks, it makes this look like a jet plane. Not only that but even tough the front side of the armor is plastic (the back is metal, what is even better), both sides make the board feel extremely solid and high quality.
Summary: I love this motherboard. From the moment I opened the case I knew that it would be a rewarding experience. There are so many features with this board that I won't even go into all of them. I really like the shielding that is covers the surface. I think it really improves the look of the board. The potential for tweaking and OC'ing with this board is great.
Summary: Awesome in many respects. Bad thing: Their little wifi card gave me/is giving me a hell of a time. No way to really get it securely in here (one screw to hold it in place but its located right by the part of its that already plugged into the motherboard? not at the back end..) It fits in there pretty well but apparently if its not JUST SO you'll be able to see all of your wifi networks but you can't connect to any of them.
Summary: I can't wait to get water cooling system and case. Need RAID 10 SSD array and Raid 1 Hybrid drive for backup.
Pros: I've used Asus products for a long time now, they have made a gorgeous looking mob with a UEFI Bios that is like a fully loaded BMW w every option under the sun. The ROG armor is beautiful to look at and runs at very low temperatures and can over clock everything, except the space time continuum. I am running a 4770K OC @ 4.6, Corsair Dominator Platinum @ 2666MHz, 1.65V and OC 7970 @ 1200MHz GPU, 1600MHz RAM, Hybrid 1TB and the temperatures w air cool are running at s...
Cons: None. This is a good price for the features that you get. Plenty of options for pro RIG builders.
