If you do not mind the lack of a USB 3.1 gen front io port connector or the wifi thingy then this is a good alternative. The E Gaming went on sale for cheaper than this which was unfortunate since I bought this 2 days before the E gaming went on sale but I have no complaints.
BIOS is a little sluggish, overall a nice looking board its kind of silver in pics but more of a gunmetal in person.
Would've gotten the E Gaming which is essentially the same thing with Wi-Fi Support and USB3.1. However, if you are torn between the Strix series or the Maximus, get the Maximus if your budget allows for it.
I chose this motherboard not only because it supported the 8th generation i7 processor, but it had a nice gray and black color theme, USB 3.0 ports, and RGB LED settings.
Easiest BIOS I've ever worked around, has more than enough features I could ever dream of using!
looks great and even has an inbuilt pre set for 5ghz clock on 8th gen intel cpus with no issues
Great mobo really nice RGB settings. Good looking clean monochrome color pattern
Great board! Wish I got the one with WiFi/Bluetooth support though. After first post the LAN would not work, even though I had installed the drivers from a USB I had previously made just before build. Very frustrating! Finally decided to try the included DVD. Viola! The LAN drivers were on the disc. I really do not know what people without disc drives in their rigs would do, to be able to get online! Very grateful I had the disc drive!
One extra chasis fan header would be awesome, otherwise well made motherboard.
