Summary: You're not looking into overclocking. This motherboard has just about everything you need. USB 3.0, 2.0, DIGI VRM, etc. Bought it and then switched out for an Asus P8Z77-V LK. I would also suggest that if you're not into overclocking to stick to a non-K processor. Ex. i5-2500k vs i5-2500. Save money and get the same specs!
Summary: I feel this motherboard is well worth the price. The motherboard was very easy to install. The wireless adapter works well. The AI Suite software that comes with the MB is much more reliable and useful than previous versions for older ASUS motherboards.
Summary: I bought this product a while back with a I5 3570k they both work together well. The motherboard was a bit of a tight squeeze when i put it into my areocool strike-x gt had to move the wires out of the cable tidy because the board blocks it. The bios is easy to use and there is a advanced option for if you want to change anything.
Summary: I decided to upgrade my 6 year old Core 2 Duo system, and to give Intel Ivy Bridge processors a try. I chose this motherboard mainly because of the integrated Display Port. My new configuration is as follows: Core i7-3770K, a pair of Intel 520 series SSD's (set as RAID0), two Western Digital HDD's (2TB + 3TB), two optical drives (Bluray + DVD-RW), Asus 27" 2650x1440 + Philips 27" 1800p I am not an over-clocker nor am I a gamer.
Summary: this board includes the best features such as pcie-express 3.0,crossfire for pci-express 2.0 cards and ultra fast usb 3.0.... buy any mid range processor of i5 3rd generation and your system is OUTDATE proof for the next four years... performance is also good and ram support is 32gb dual channel....
Excerpt: Покупал плату ещё летом в июне 13г. Захотел обновить драйвера, но решил залить свежие с офсайта. Столкнулся с проблемой, на офсайте в разделе "драйвера и утилиты" (Driver & Tools). Так и не смог понять, что эти разрабы пытались там намутить.
Pros: USB 3, Русский биос
Cons: Проблемные драйвера и утилиты, отсутствие поддержки IDE и LPT, мало слотов USB, мало проводов для соединения дисков и двиди-ромов, мало слотов для подсоединения вентиляторов (куллеров)
