Most Unsatisfactory reviews on this motherboard can probably be traced tothe inaptitude of purchaser. I bought one. Works Great.

Summary: It is hard for me to phantom why so many reviews for this mobo are so negative. A 3 plus Stars for a 5 Star wonder? I understand that the reason normally given is that it does not work as hoped and intended. So I spend quite a bit of my premium free time reviewing literally hundreds of the 3 or less star ratings and all the 1 star reviews to try to see if I could divine reasons as to why in many cases this board did not work properly or at all.
Summary: I've used Asus motherboards for many years. I've never had a major complaint. They provide reasonably timed updates on the firmware and the user sites are quite informative and useful. A quality product at a reasonable price.
Summary: This was my first build, and wanted to go with some of the best, everything went well until I installed the utilities, the pc would freeze on every startup after I installed the one untility from the ASUS disc. so I called them and was told I needed to download a patcher file and then download the updated utility from their website. The utility is AI Suite II (Couldn't remember had to look it up). But besides that it is Awesome I love my whole setup.

Summary: Ordered this for a F@H rig that was going to be housing a 2600k overclocked (4.8GHz) 24/7 and wanted the deluxe to help with the additional power phases. Everything turned out to work amazing and had no problems what so ever. Only difference I would have liked to do was get a z68 one instead of the p67 but this suits my needs. The EFI bios is new to me and I'm very impressed with how easy it is to navigate and overclock with.
Summary: Great product. It's big, so make sure you are buying a case that will fit it, or things can get difficult when putting your computer together. BIOS Software is fantastic. Allows for really easy setup. Fantastic fan control, EPU stuff, pretty awesome. Overclocking looks to be a breeze. I will update this when I ACTUALLY overclock. Been using it for about a month, no issues. RECOMMEND!!
Summary: Years ago I assembeled a computer using a motherboard from ASUS. Since then I tried other brands and did not feel they even came close to ASUS's quality. I will not purchase any other board for my yearly computer upgrades. KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK ASUS. PS. And thank You Amazon for the great service.
Summary: This mb isn't cheap but you get what you pay for, at least in this case. I was expecially looking for dual LAN, USB-3, SATA-6Gb/s, OCZ RevoDrive X2 160GB, and good customer reviews. Very stable. I'm using a i7-2600, 16GB Corsair Vengeance ram (4x4GB), Hitachi 2TB HD SATA-6Gb/s, and a GTX570HD graphics card.
Summary: This is a great board and it made overclocking incredibly easy. I also love the USB 3.0 accessory port it comes with. It's not the longest cable but it gets the job done (another 6 in would've been awesome). Nevertheless I love this board. I don't know how much you care about the look of your boards, but I weigh it in my decision. And this board is beautiful. The wave heat spreaders are awesome and with my blue RAM it looks really sharp. I highly recommend this board.
