Great motherboard for a newbie overclocker and inexperienced builder. Great assembly guide and manual -- except that the specs on the video card slots are misleading. There is only one slot that works at 16x and therefore only one that can run a high end video card. The specs on the web and even in the manual say there are two 16x slots. But the fine print on the diagram of the motherboard makes clear there is only one. ASUS confirmed this in emails with customer support, and so far has not explained to me their misleading specs. Other than this, it performs as promised and has great features such as Q-fan control and a Bios which is well suited for newbies and experts. And there are custom lighting control options that mainly I don't use -- but I do like the built in LEDs. Overall great experience! I have wondered however whether a cheaper "Strix" model would have been sufficient for my need -- take a look at both.

Looks great. Lots of options. Lots of tuning On board sound card caused many issues of no-sound. Disabled it and bought a Sennheiser GSX 1200 Pro instead

I'm gonna be honest I really only bought this board because of the look, it's a wonderful board none the less. Unfortunately I don't use all the features on it but it is a easy board to hook everything into and looks great too.

The bios was very easy to navigate through and had all the features I could possibly need. The RGB lighting is very interesting I usually will keep it Red or Black or I will just turn it off because its very distracting especially when I am trying to sleep and I see my computer flashing all over the place!

This is a great all around mobo at a very reasonable price. It performs well and handled my overclocks with ease. The RGB lighting on it looks very nice as well. I was slightly disappointed that the board only had a single USB 2.0 header on it, especially since it seems targeted toward RGB gaming builds with its RGB lighting and multiple RGB headers on the board. The one USB header is taken up by my AIO cooler, so I had to buy an additional USB 2.0 internal hub to add in my NZXT Hue+. This could just be a personal preference though, so this otherwise great motherboard still gets 5 stars from me.

No problems so far. The manual is easy to follow and had no problems updating the bios via usb before installing win10.
