Summary: Bought this board to fix a water damaged Alienware Aurora R4. This is an amazingly sturdy board that screams quality. The BIOS is top notch, easy to navigate and has very detailed overclocking abilities. The built in power and reset buttons are very handy while troubleshooting. To save yourself a lot of frustration, if you're installing windows from a USB device, make sure that the USB device is formatted to FAT32 as NTFS will not work.
Summary: I had to flash the BIOS to accommodate my i7-4930. If you need to do this it should be done BEFORE installing the CPU. Instructions can be found on the internet. I opted for 32GB of quad channel RAM for my machine. I have had it a few weeks now and it has been a great motherboard with unexpected performance by using the included AI Suite clocking utility. The utility suggested I set my system at 4.5GHZ and one click later that is what I have.
Summary: Could not get this to post at all. It had power, and the lights on the board were all illuminated, but would not start. I checked everything, re-seated everything and nothing. I sent it back and got a Sabertooth, and it works perfectly. I love Asus, and this was the first faulty board I've received from them after over 20 mobos.
Summary: Fitness for DDR3 is poor and the PCH cooling is so bad that it would be 60 C when I play watch dogs. The PCI-E slots are not well set. U cannot have a PCI-E wireless together with a Sli or CF.
Summary: This is my 30 build with BX80619I73820 Intel Core i7 Quad-core i7-3820 3.6GHz with this model and only Qty: 01 had to return back to Amazon due the pin contact at CPU damage, not design problem or else. Handling issue So far all of them work well and no problem so far.

Summary: Wickedly fast and runs cool to boot. How can you not give a motherboard that let's you overclock your CPU to 4.5 on air without any effort! Just stuck it in my new Asus Rampage IV Gene microATX 2011 mobo and stuck a cooler master Hyper 212 Evo on it and let ROG's CPU Level Up go to work and instant 4.5 on air! And even at this speed the cpu speed still only get's up to 38C!

Summary: I bought the ASUS card 19 months ago. It died after 15 months of the 36 month contractual warranty. I have been trying to get an RMA replacement that works for -- 4 months -- MONTHS (NOT TWO WEEKS mind you)-- and ASUS -- keeps returning to me DOA motherboards according to 7 senior repair technitions in 4 different computer repair shops. I woundn't be surprised that they get their DOA Motherboard and then resend the very same board back to me!
