Summary: Well, i got My Motherboard in but i noticed a few bent pins in the right side of the mother board( if you look at the picture you can see near the bottom right a green port). I bent it back then it worked great.
Summary: I use high air flow cases and due to the amount of dust that I'm constantly battling, this MB is just what I needed. This board is the ultimate in dust defense, every port has a plastic slot cover and the thermal armor helps with dust a bit..
Summary: This motherboard was great and everything about it made it very pleasuring to use on my system but it is not very compatible with cases like the 400r as the motherboard standoff place is hollowed in which made it difficult to install.
Summary: Had trouble in the beginning. Could not get past the memory test. Took 1 hour to troubleshoot the problem. I found 1 of the Processor pin was bent. Lucky for me I was able to bend it back. Since then, it has worked without any incidents.
Great performer, but has a weird issue with some keyboards

Summary: This motherboard definitely preforms well. That's where the pros end. Since I got the motherboard I was never able to boot directly into Windows (secure boot on/off, UEFI install of Windows or not, GTP or MBR) which was annoying considering Windows 8 by default likes to reboot all by itself.
Summary: I like this motherboard because its got plenty of room for SLI and fans. I just think the whole "Armor" thing was a bad idea. It takes up more space in my case than it should, making some connections (cpu water cooler) difficult to pull off.
First Board was DOA, Replacement has been flawless

Summary: Ordered this board to go with my Core i7-4771 CPU. Honestly the looks and the fact that it comes with all of the dust covers to keep all of the dust out the extra slots/ports was one of the reasons I chose to go with this board.
