Good "bang for the buck" Motherboard, while it lacks some asthetic things like an IO cover and on board wifi this board has many of the same components as it's $100 more expensive brother the Asus Crosshair Vi
Good board. If it were to have small things like a clear cmos button or a multipler Overclocking instead of FIDs and DIDs. It would be great. Just update the Bios right after you get the board and it would be running stable and can use higher ram speeds.
Solid motherboard - and only a single strip of RGB along the side (on the audio circuit). Has an RGB connector so you can connect the stock heatsink fan to it, or drive an LED strip; watch out for the awkward location (right above the M.2-2280 screw hole).
Would love a clear CMOS button (the battery lies between my two GPUs) but it seems to correct itself if it can't POST anyways.
I feel I am too new to this stuff to have a grasp on what makes a mobo great or not great. However, from my own exp putting this thing together, this board gave me a tool that helped me tremendously - that little front panel connector thingy. Instead of having to hook those very very small and confusing front panel connectors to the header directly on the mobo, this Asus came with an adapter which was clearly labeled and easily held in your hand. Put the connectors on the adapter, then put the adapter with everything already hooked up to it onto the mobo.
No, my 3200 memory isn't running at 3200...but its running at 2933. And honestly, that does everything so well, I don't even care.
Excellent audio specs, too...which is important to me. All the ouputs I need.
Tons of USB 3.0 and above.
Neat but subtle RGB on the bottom left of the board, which u can use the Asus software to coordinate with other stuff.
