    I've used this Mobo in two builds this year, and have been impressed on both occasion. Great all round features, 2x M.2 slots and the high end Realtec audio codec (1220) are a bonus. Probably bordering on being expensive for what it is, but I do live in Australia where everything costs the Earth.

    Very happy with this board. Bios has a lot of options. Nice and easy to use. One M2 slots shares bandwidth with sata 1, the other one with sata 5 and 6.

    This board came with everything I needed and matched the color scheme. The m.2 was a must for me and it has 6 SATA ports but if you are using a m.2 port, it will disable one of the SATA ports. On board sound card is decent. The bios has many options to choose from and auto OC tools too.

    An ideal mobo for those happy with a single GPU setup. Great features all round

    from completed build Behemoth V2.0

    Good: Excellent motherboard, so far I have had no issues. Corsair LPX 3000MHz ram had its XMP profile recognized immediately for frequency and timings. Fan control options seem pretty extensive and there's an option for water cooling. 2 M.2 ports, 6 SATA ports. Decent and isolated sound card. Good looking board and the RGB LED's are a plus.

    Bad: Only 5 USB ports total (not including USB-C port), had to add an expansion card.

    Overall a great purchase!

    from completed build Upgraded Existing System

    Love the bios user interface, very self explanatory and intuitive to use, especially since this is my actual first build doing everything and picking all the parts myself. Used youtube tutorials for all fine tuning in the bios (i.e. boot drive, fan speed settings (needs to be turned off for cpu fan to allow for Corsair Link 4 to control the cpu fan speed and to customize speed curve), DDR4 Ram speed, enabling/disabling turbo boost for CPU, etc.). Also, love the RGB Aura Sync ability; never thought I would like colors so much, but matches well with my other RGB components (i.e. LED case light strips from Phanteks, Drevo Calibur 71 Key Mechanical Keyboard, Logitech Prodigy G403 Wireless Mouse, Logitech G933 Headset).

    This motherboard is SO good, the BIOS look amazing, and it has RBG lighting, at first I was a little annoyed that I couldn't make the LEDs just red, but I actually like it.
