Absolutely fantastic motherboard for the price, great GUI interface, haven't had any troubles and it colour matches the build perfectly.
Looks great.Great for overclocking. Great fan settings. Overall easy to setup and easy to make everything work properly. A bit pricey though.
After stupidly buying a Gigabyte board to save money when I bought my 4790K which inevitably died on me (like every Gigabyte board I've ever owned) I decided to go back with Asus again as I've never had a problem with there hardware before.
The features on this board are excellent for the money and it handles overclocks well. Unfortunately this board isn't perfect though, it has some weird quirks such as wiping the CMOS when power is turned off to the PSU sometimes even though the BIOS battery checks out fine and nothing is shorting the board (though this seems to have stopped somehow) and now with my current overclock and BIOS settings even though everything is running perfect and stable if I power the system on from a cold start it turns on then straight back off as if the BIOS settings have changed or been wiped and then back on again. Yet it doesn't enter the BIOS it boots straight into Windows and works like normal but is a bit annoying on every boot.
Them 2 issues are the only reason it doesn't get the extra star to be honest.
