Summary: 1. had stability problems despite latest bios flash. it sometimes drops connection. 2. this is the second asus board i'v had with stability problems but have kept it because i didn't want to go to the trouble of teraing down the computer again.
Summary: I love this motherboard never used anything faster, no need to over clock here, only found 1 con not enough fan headers. but an easy fix for 10.00 bought a molex fan header. xmp in the uefi is great for setting your ram simple and works very well.
Summary: This board is solid and let me get to a stable 4.6-4.7 on my 4700k cpu by simply increasing core voltage and multiplier with everything else set to the optimized default (use the bios, not ai suite III). Turning off hyperthreading can also get you higher OC and keep temps down.
Summary: This board hasn't been out long, but there have been at least 6 BIOS updates thus far and many driver updates for the on-board features. Unless you really want the controls for over-clocking, etc., I suggest you look elsewhere.
Summary: One thing I've learned over the years building gaming PCs is that ASUS parts never let me down. Putting your cash into ASUS is a safe bet that the product will last and you'll get your money's worth. But enough about my love of this brand, I'll tell you about the board.
Excerpt: This is the second of these system boards I have bought to upgrade some old kit. This one has given me some grief, but not by its hardware, but by the dreaded UEFI firmware. I am trying to install Linux using the Raid 5 features of the PCB with 5 2TB drives.
