Highly recommended, large QVL and 2 on-board NVMe (M.2) slots. Also has RGB lighting and simple controller software that also helped control the CPU cooler lights.

Great MB but the USB connector in bad spot and it was hard to use

This motherboard is a beast. It has support for dual graphics and triple graphics setups, two M.2 slots, and always-on USB ports. It looks very nice in the case and the RGB is amazing.

The black-on-black theme of this board looks nicer in person than it does online. Fortunately, the RAM support has gotten much better after recent BIOS updates. However, the ROG audio manager still does not allow the use of both desktop speakers and headset simultaneously. Asus' audio manager cannot properly detect input jacks: the system shows "connector retasking" and constantly switches the audio output back and forth between speakers (front-panel) and headset (back-panel) yielding NO sound. Automatic jack detection must be off to set these manually, or only have one unit plugged in at a time.
Additionally, the monitoring options in the BIOS could be better as the CPU header does not allow for fan off and all headers will forcibly pick an arbitrary “minimum duty.” The fan profiles aren't great, because the CPU fan header cannot be set to monitor fluid temps. This means that it is very difficult to take advantage of the heavy water cooling, when during light web browsing the fans likely aren’t needed whatsoever.
All things considered, that's a ridiculous amount of troubleshooting for a "Gaming" branded motherboard in it's price range. It must be mentioned that Ryzen XFR works well with this unit, because the CPU will reach near it's automatic limit of 4.35GHz.

This board looks and works fantastic. If you don’t have enough for a Crosshair this is the next best thing.

Really nice motherboard, simple to use and the bios was easy to update with the asus software. It was really easy to overcloack the cpu with it. My only concern was the style, personnaly i like the decale they put on it, but some people may not like it. On another idea, Asus put a little piece on fabric on it. I don't know why, it's not really ugly but really not conventionnal. I give 4 star for those thing.
