Summary: I bought this mobo back in April and was very hesitant even though the first revision (B2 version) was highly regarded among many tech sites and had glowing reviews on many websites. This board was in high demand when the SATA ports issue got resolved and Intel reissued new chipsets.
Summary: I purchased this motherboard in conjunction with an Intel Core i5-2500K Processor 3.3GHz 6 MB Cache Socket LGA1155 . I wanted a good motherboard with a lot of features that include the new SATAIII and one that would work well and fit dual video cards for when I upgrade down the road. I use this with a EVGA 580 GTX SC video card and a 1.5 TB HDD.
Summary: This board was purchased to be the basis for a near high-end gaming rig I was building. I say near, as I did not want to spend for the cost of bleeding-edge performance. After a lot of research I ultimately chose this board over the Asus P67 Sabertooth (wasn't sure about the need for the thermal armor) and a Asus P8P67 deluxe (did not need the extra LAN port or additional USB 3.0 ports).
Not sure what's giving me the problems...looking like it may be the MOBO

Summary: Pros: Feature full. UEFI Bios 3 year manufacturer warranty Cons: Still has a buggy bios Experiencing occasional post errors and multiple boots. I like the board and all the features it comes with, not bad for the price and Asus is generally a reliable brand. However, my build is having some obvious issues associated with the motherboard (the multiple cold boots and failure to post) but I'm also running into some BSODs while running windows.
