Cons: The specs on this MB read really nice. Asus generally has a good reputation imo. But, this board is a fail. While not everyone is having issues there are far too many people with near identical issues for it to be acceptable. CPU pins bent on arrival, memory issues which for me was half the dimm slots inoperable. RMA'ed it to Newegg and bought a Gigabyte Z77-UD5H which worked right out of the box no questions asked. Saw all 32GB of RAM (sorry Asus).
