Summary: I purchased this motherboard to overclock my i7-2600K CPU to 4.4-GHz, which it did simply with the press of one button in the AI Tool found within the on-board UEFI. The V PRO line has proven to be the best bang-for-buck in Asus's product line-up for some time now and this motherboard has not been a disappointment.
Summary: I have always had pretty good luck with ASUS motherboards, so when it was time to build a new rig this was my first choice for a motherboard. It has run flawlessly for two years of daily abuse running an overclocked i7-2600k. The USB 3 ports are coming in more useful now that there are so many external hard drives out there that take advantage of the speed, which makes it easy to backup my machine and to hold my media collection.
Summary: I received this item and it was defective and had to send it back. It was a dead motherboard I got it peoffecionally intall in my new pc and they told me it was defective and needed to be replace.
Summary: I have this board installed on my new computer have had it up and running. I bought this board as a spare.

Summary: I had issues with the board all throughout the year it actually worked. I should have replaced it off the get go but as problems with motherboards go they were intermittent and hard to pin point. I am done buying Asus products. Lately their Q/C has become inconsistent.
Summary: I could write paragraphs on paragraphs for you, but I won't The UEFI is beautiful, amazing, spectacular The ASUS AISUITEII software package is awesome, comes with your mobo drivers and lets you do just about everything but burn your toast (edit: I take that back, you could stop active cooling and slowly use your CPU to toast bread, in theory) The manual is your best friend, it has tables to translate all the beeps and lights The chipset is powerful, I've yet to have any...

Summary: I purchased this MB and built the computer around a year ago now and am very pleased with it. I have an I-7 Sandy Bridge 2600K CPU with 8 GB of Kingston Hyper X DDR3-1600 CL9 240-Pin DIMM, a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler with 2 fans, WD Caviar Black 2 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache, OCZ ZX Series 850W PSU, and a Lite On BD Writer.
Summary: This is my second ASUS board and the first Intel for a few years. It has everything I wanted, including an onboard USB 3.0 header. I have used the Blue Tooth to connect with my smart phone to transfer files, work great. This UEFI/BIOS has many options for over clocking, which is one main reason for choosing this board.
