Summary: Ive noticed quite a few reviews around the net regarding this motherboard and figured I would share my experiences considering Ive owned one now for 11 Months and have used it non stop every day. Lets get started... Pros - Stability - This Motherboard has been extremely stable for me. Im still using the stock BIOS that predates the one available through ASUS Support (0903 5/06/2013) and have had 0 issues. BIOS is one of those things where If its not broke, Dont fix it.
Great motherboard that allows PCI expansion cards to live a longer life!

Summary: Very happy with this as I'm able to use my IBM & HP keyboards & Microsoft mouse and a Ralink dual-band wi-fi card with it. Excellent build quality and a very good manual. Great value for money.
Summary: This was a rare find, as it went into my server PC, and NOT a gaming PC. PRO: 1. Glad they were in stock, I was looking for this slightly older board. 2. The newer version is sold out, oh well, not what I wanted. :) 3. 32 GB RAMM. Sweet! (I only put in 16GB myself) CON: 1. Speaking of newer model, I was surprised that this was still this expensive. 2. Has only two PCI and two PCI Express slots, oh well, I needed the HDD hook-up, for 14.5 TB of HDD. OTHER: 1.
Summary: I damaged my Asus motherboard (my fault, not Asus') and replaced it with a Gigabyte to save $25. After a couple of months of frustration with that board, I bit the bullet and bought an Asus board (a later one and a new CPU). It's been great. I've been using Asus boards for 15 years and won't deviate again!
Summary: An amazing motherboard for my Intel 4770k they fight perfectly and the memory slots and everything are you great. no wasted space and no heat running around in the Computer case. The board has many emergency leds in order to recognize where a problem may be.
Summary: I'm quite amazed at the speed of this computer with the 787-Plus in it. I'm a gamer and most of the games I play are graphically intensive MMOs. I do run an external graphics card and will be dropping another one in at some point. I'm pretty happy that there is the option to do so. Assembly was a snap and the utility of the board is just what I needed.
Summary: I'm getting a CPU Fan Error! Press F1 to resume every time I start or reboot my computer. This is very frustrating and to top it off, getting in contact with ASUS customer service to resolve my issue is almost impossible. Currently, I'm debating weather to return this MB and try a different brand.
Summary: I have owned about 10 motherboards throughout the past 10 years. I normally go with Asus for most of my builds. Last build, i decided to try Intel motherboards. That was a mistake. The intel board failed on me after a year of light use. For my newest build i went back to Asus... and i could not be happier. The UEFI interface is a welcome improvement to the normal BIOS interface. The ease in which you can change settings is truly amazing.
