Amazing motherboard! The Rgb lights look better in person than in pictures trust me, and it's built in wifi is even better than some specialised WiFi Cards' ! It does come at a cost however, at the premium cost of 360+ Aud.
I went for form over function for this one. Silver to make the NZXT case and white theme stand out.
Looks amazing, works well with a white/black build. I did not like how little USB 2.0 headers were put on this board. Also, the rear I/O is really lacking in USB, but overall, Solid Mobo
Has everything I need, supports all my hardware and no issues whatsoever!
I wish it had more LEDs, other than that this MOBO is great. It could use a few more USBs in the back panel.
Wi fi, Bluetooth, great oc ability/utility. More than enough fan headers. Built in rgb headers, rgb lighting on the io. Can't say enough about how good this board is.
No LLC vdroop kills high load overclocks. I have it running with my 8700k and all of the settings 1-7 don't do anything (strange considering i had an asus z170 mobo without this issue)
watched this video and it seems like a known issue
Went asus/corsair for this build. That mobo does the job, it got wifi and bluetooth and tons of tweaking things for overclocking etc.
It is also on the white side to match the white theme of it.
Stylish, great heat-sinks, on-board WiFi, easy to update and use BIOS.
Attaching the IO shield and getting this set was a major pain, and I don't like the default multicore enhancement setting being on, as this was hiking up my temperatures. Needed to set my RAM speeds also from their default 2133MHz, but that was part of my OCing process so no complaints. Also needed to disable the pump control and use CAM for my Kraken and radiator fans to properly work.
Settings to overclock were simple, especially with how many guides there are out there. This mid tier board does exactly what I need it to do, may upgrade to a Maximus later on, but for now it's perfect.
Heard some issues with Vdrooping, but I haven't experienced any huge voltage changes or clock dropping. OCs my 8700k to 5GHz no issue on version 0606.
1 Word: OMG :-D, btw, that nag about M2 disk taking up speed, it only blocks 2 usb ports (5-6), you have plenty inside :-D
