Mid-priced over clocking mobo w/ nice features & software. No worries.
5 November 2014
Summary: I've used 6 of these. Seems some have bad ram slot, main reason for RMA. The return I bought tested a-ok with i5-3570k, 4x4Gb ram, HD 7950. Tried pci & pci-e slots too & all worked. I bought this board new for my main rig w/ i7-3770K. Running more than a year no worries is why I've used 5 more for clients, friends & family.
Summary: great MOBO overclocking made easy, i have my i5 @4.1 GHZ has everything i needed to build a great machine. i would recommend it to anyone looking for a MOBO that supports LAG 1155 intel chips! intel i5 3570k Cooler Master Hyper N520 Asus P8Z77-V LK corsair vengeance 16GB 1600 MHZ EVGA GTX 780 SC kingston hyperx 120 GB SSD (os) segate 1tb 7200 RPM HDD (storage) diablotek Cyclopes mid tower case (5 case fans)

Summary: I bought this to try an Intel processor and have always used Asrock boards but after getting 2 bad boards from them and hassle about returns I went with this Asus. I have always been an AMD person and thought Id try Intel. The board works great got all the options that I was looking for for building my first Intel gaming rig.So far the performance has been good. I have no complaints about this board as of yet. I have only had it for about a month so we will see.
Summary: Ordered this as a quick replacement while waiting for an RMA of another one elsewhere. Decent enough for it's price given a rebate made it more better value. Didn't realize it didn't have IDE so no DVD drive for me.. I ended up scrambling to do a USB boot. Minor issues trying to get the thing to finally recognize with a USB boot but once you get past that it should be smooth sailing. Bios is somewhat bothersome to navigate.
Summary: I wish I could say that I was gentle with this as I built my PC, but alas I gave it a good roughing up as I fumbled my way through my first build. I might've gotten a resilient little sucker, but here is a list of things that it survived: -Over ten tries to mount it to the case which failed because the back panel plate's bent back metal teeth were in the way -Sticking the wet hair on my dumb head next to the backside (by the CPU, naturally) -Tightening the mounting...
