Chose this over the Gaming Plus mainly because of its neutral black color and the cover over the IO ports. Mine came with BIOS version 1.0.0, there were some issues so the newest version was installed and everything was fixed. Plenty of ports and headers, all anyone can ask for.
A good motherboard, bios is good and overclocking is easy.
Though I didn't build a gaming machine, this still works for workstations. Its got enough of what you need plus, allowing for proper airflow between parts (gpu,cpu, etc) With the type of giant cooler that I have, always best to use a low profile memory.
Plenty of fan headers, perfect for the amount of fans i have in my case, maximum of 64gb ram space, easy to understand bios and support. You may have to update the bios. Features a "EZ mode" in bios for overclocking. Perfect for those unfamiliar with it like i was.
