Has issues, can't put 48GB or 64GB of RAM b/c it won't boot, even at stock clocks, only 32GB or less works. This is unacceptable for a motherboard of this price bracket.
Sure, it's the coolest piece in this build, or maybe not considering the GTX 980 Matrix. It's a very beautiful motherboard, and it offers very good performance. In the UEFI BIOS, there is the Mouse/Keyboard support, which is very nice. Also in the UEFI BIOS, in advanced mode (by pressing F7) there is alot of overclocking feature, some of them are too specific and I don't even have an idea of what is it for, but for the part I understand, I think it's very well done. On the motherboard, there is alot of keys to make your overclocking experience easier, or safer. Cons, alot of driver issues, needs alot of update.
Has issues, USB ports not working once in a while, took a few bios updates to get this thing to stop hanging on boots.
Two of my fan headers were DOA and the on-board audio quit working after a little less than a year. If not for the fact that is has 6 other fan headers and I have a USB Amp/DAC, I would have RMAed it a long time ago. Now I'm struggling with the decision to remove it from this system and try to deal with Asus' customer service department before it's too late.
Very temperamental bios; often forgets drive settings.
