This is a very busy board. It's impressive how much shenanigans Asus has put into a 6.7" x 6.7" square: full 8+2 power phasing using quality components, mPCI-E + M.2, a dedicated sound board, plenty of USB ports, and all the fun ROG features you could ever hope for. It's a fantastic foundation for anyone wanting to make a big impression in a small package. I was even luckier to have picked this up as part of a clearance sale, with the only thing wrong being the bent HD Audio headers on the sound card that was very easy to fix.

My only caveat was getting it to work properly with the 4790K. At first, Prime95 would cause Windows to crash even on failsafe settings; after updating to the latest BIOS, I was able to push my 4790K to 4.4GHz.
