Summary: I bought this board for WS capabilities but ultimately realized it makes more sense to either go full on ws or full on consumer parts. the idea of making a hybrid is a bad idea.
Pros: Asus customer service was pretty good, so thankfully I was able to get ahold of techs when I needed.
Cons: All the negative comments I read on here from multiple other users indicating problems with the bios, DOA boards ect were real. I made the mistake of buying this board before reading the reviews, but thankfully I did read reviews so I knew to update the bios, which was at least a four hour process, very painful.
