May need some updates in the future, having issues clocking the RAM higher than 2799MHz. Can perform auto-bios updates which is nice and cmos reset button on the back is convenient. Now that I have it set up it's working perfectly, just a matter of keeping the clock speeds in range. So far 4.15GHz is the peak stable bootup speed but under load is around 4.05GHz, hopefully updates in the future will help increase CPU and RAM stable speeds.

So far, this board has had some trouble. ASUS was rather quiet about this motherboards backwards compatibility with AM3 coolers. RAM speeds are not what they should be. My RAM is 3000 MHz out of the box, but the board wont clock the RAM any higher than 2133 MHz, yet the board supports 2666 MHz. Optimization takes time but it is very aggravating knowing you're only using 1/3 of your speed.

I will not dock any stars over the delay to receive this.

Easy to install, the locations of the port & connections are good. BIOS updates are coming out and as of today was able to get my ram to run @ 3200. Planning on getting 2x RGB LED strips :)

Looks nice in the case.

Little pricey compare to Intel, but great motherboard overall. Asus is quick on new BIOS.

This is one of the best motherboards for a Ryzen build. A bunch of apps to add, and it illuminates well when the PC's on AND off. But, if you're going to use an AM3 bracket for this, use a AM3 backplate that you have, or buy one ASAP at either Amazon or eBay, cause this only has an AM4 backplate. I'm docking one star off, just because ASUS doesn't provide you with an AM3 backplate, if the motherboard is compatible with AM3 brackets.

Overall:
Being a long time ASUS ROG enthusiast, the Crosshair 6 was the natural fit for the Ryzen CPU. The early adopter issues have been quite frustrating to deal with, and that's coming from someone who's built PCs for 20 years and often gotten in early on new releases!

Pros:
1) ASUS / ROG brand, utilities and quality
2) RGB Auro sync / board looks great

Cons:
1) AMD rushing the Ryzen out, Asus had 2 weeks to get the boards ready! Stability issues, should be sorted within a few months.
2) Availability early on, makes RMAs very painful
3) Overclocking / AMD / DDR4, all very immature and unknown how it will pan out
4) Would love to have been able to wait for the ROG Code / Formula / Extreme, where are they? :)

I don't really want to knock any stars off this motherboard as it truly is a great motherboard, it's just AM4 is a newborn but lots of updates and stability will come to pass eventually.
