Summary: I have owned this motherboard for over a year, and I am somewhat sorry that I purchased it. One of the primary reasons to select this model was the extra two SATA ports (I run a LOT of drives). Sadly, I have been unable to make use of these.
Summary: TL;DR I have tried top of the line AMD ASUS boards for 3 years with nothing but bad luck. Customer service is bad too. I have owned two of these Asus motherboards since 2012. They both lasted an average of six months. Asus's customer support is horrible and it takes hours to get through.
Summary: I decided on this motherboard in my new computer build. I had used MSI in my previous build, but after looking over the possibilities I decided on this one. I read on several reviews that there were CMOS issues. I loaded windows 8.1 pro 64 bit with 32GB RAM AMD 990FX, and an MSI gamers video card.
Summary: Best motherboard I haver built or will (caner). Lots of PCI Express 3.0 slots. Has 64 G memory. Military grade. Just to name a few. I use AMD 4 Gh processor 125 watage. You can put 4.4 Gh CPU but watage doubles (220 I think). Not worth it in my book.
