It's a motherboard. Does everything I need it to and in fact may be overkill for me as I'm not overclocking or doing any other "nonstandard" stuff that this board supports. Well made, and the ASUS BIOS control is the best in the business. For my purposes that mostly involved configuring BIOS control of the fan speed for my AIO cooler, which was quite easy: set the pump unit to 100% all the time using one of the chassis fan connectors and the fan to PWM control using the CPU fan connector.

I really like it, it's got a clean bios and a great manual, and won't stuff up your color scheme!

Overall good board and very good for its price. Given it's the cheapest Z97 board I could find, it has a lot of features. I am not particularly digging fan headers locations. Also the top right screw is pretty much out of reach unless you have rubber fingers 1/4" wide and/or weirdly angled screwdriver. I had to give up on it and left with 5 mounting points. Not a biggie, but you do need to be a bit more cautious with the cables. There's basically no mounting on the upper right side at all.

It hasn't died YET, which is all I could ask of it.

I never have problems with Asus motherboards. I use the AI suite to dial in the fans.
