Runs great, looks great, 4 years and counting

Summary: Rebuilt PC and used this board from another build, felt compelled to write a review. It has its limitations on specs when compared to 2014/2015 boards, and LGA1366 is what it is.
Pros: Still kicking after 4 years, not a single hardware issue. The Asus AI suite was installed long ago though - brought nothing but problems. Hardware is what I made the purchase for, so still 5 eggs.
Cons: LGA1366 is done, but this chip/board still holds its own esp with some OCing.
Summary: It will not. Only showed 16gb of ram when I had every slot filled with 4gb of the exact same brand new high-dollar name brand ram. Put exact same memory in a supermicro motherboard, and all 24gb shows. Running the exact same windows 7 ultimate 64 bit OS.
Summary: The construction and speed is worthy of the name "Gamers". My only tiny issue is it tops out at 24 gigs of RAM. I got a super deal on a 1366 hexcore chip so this board seemed the best bet. I process and render lots of video and it works great.
Summary: If you're looking for a customizable bios you've found one with this board. It's an over-clocker's dream board. Buy it already.
Pros: Solid construction, perfect amount and type of ports, cpu socket lets you get an intel bloomberg i7 (awesome cpu). The bios is incredible, with all the over-clocking options you'd ever need. POST is extremely informative and saves you a bunch of time when putting together your machine.
Summary: I've owned Asus products since the early 90's when they were an up and coming generic like Samsung used to be as well. I think my P2B-N with an overclocked Celeron is still running in a relatives garage. Their quality and support has dwindled over the decades and I have had the last straw.
Pros: tri-SLI, Triple channel RAM, easy overclocking, auto-resets to defaults after failed overclocking attempt
Cons: First: The drivers that came on CD and the drivers on the web site never worked for the X-Fi sound. The Creative Labs software said it couldn't find a supported chip. Asus support said I could RMA the board back. Okay, big disappointment but I'm not taking a working motherboard out of my best PC ...
Summary: This board was intended to replace an Asus P6T... The board was a beauty to look at and the various led lights to identify a POST problem were a nice touch. Have to returned because can't ready PNY XLR8 or any other RAM in all dims.
Summary: My Only Complaint: Almost a year since I purchased this board. After purchasing an SSD and attempting to install Win7 to try to reach the advertised 6Gb/s, I found after much work and research that it wasn't happening.
Pros: So far this motherboard has been working great! I've owned it for over a year and have not had any issues. I love the features it gives for over clocking and diagnosing hard ware issues, although I have not had any.
Summary: I have used Asus for 7 years now and nothing but good reviews. Their warranty is the best out there, but the tech support is a bit lacking. I just simply request an RMA fight out of the gate. ASUS FOR LIFE
Pros: WOW...This is truly an amazing board. The ROG connect is simply mind blowing. This board is so far ahead of its competitors its not even funny. Don't believe the negative responses, this board is pure win. ASUS FOR LIFE
Pros: Comes in a cool box with stickers for your sata cables.
Cons: Didnt recognize 5 different hdd and 2 ssd of 10 total drives. SATA III 6G does not exist on this board! I am reviewing it after deactivation, but in case you are thinking about buying this any way, don't.
