My first thing to say about this is, it looks badass. GB did a very nice job making sure all the ports were visible and accessible, installation of the IO shield was a breeze, and connecting the front panel IO could not have been easier. This is super easy to work with, comes loaded with features, and looks awesome.
The BIOS is also great! It supports Intel XMP and is easy to navigate, but also offers an "expert" mode if you get tired of the BIOS for 5yos.
I've docked a star because on a gaming mobo of this price, I would have expected to see support for 4-way both CF and SLI. Nope! Only supports 2-way SLI and 3-way CF. Oh well, guess upgrade potential's just a tad limited...but in all fairness, >3 SLI or CF configs are downright unreasonable for the scaling you get.
I was impressed when I opened the box and saw this beautiful board.

The BIOS is easy to understand and navigate, a LOT of options. Already enabled intel's XMP for my RAM without a hitch!
this MOBO has all the bells and nobs and leavers you could ever want (too meany).
its also a "killer" looking mother board with red lights and heat syncs and is also a great value.
so what are you waiting for, BUY IT!
Purchased off of /r/hardwareswap. I originally was happy to get this for the price, but have quickly learned the BIOS is not as friendly as Asrock or Asus and the fan controlling is terrible. While the motherboard looks great and the on board sound rocks, I would not recommend this board at anywhere near full price.
Got this motherboard to replace one I accidentally fried. Tasteful red accent lighting for my build, but may be a problem with other color schemes.
