"Its A Motherboard"

Insane motherboard. Got it with a healthy rebate + sale. Very satisfied with all aspects. This is the new standard for 970 mobos.

Great value and easy to setup. Included Ai Suite software is fantastic. The chipset has ASUS' AURA RGB lighting. If you are using one or two large video cards it will block the RGB lighting form being visible. Has official SLi certification as well. The 970 chipset only has 20 PCIe 2.0 lanes (GPUs in CFX or SLi utilize 16 PCIe lanes at 8X). Still more than sufficient for most anything you throw at it but antiquated for todays standards. That said it is a value board and I knew that going in.

Its a motherboard... but with lights. M.2 on a 970 chipset is a +. Also lots of fan headers for good cable management.

I like this boards style and functions, it is also very easy to install components to.

I love Asus! That's probably why they get a nice 4 stars.. But I know that they make good boards and that's why I chose Asus, this board is beautiful and has nice RGB lighting but one thing about that is the RGB lighting near the logo at the bottom right is covered by my GPU which kinda disappoints me. This board has dealt with my punishment because I am a clumsy builder as you can see in the CPU review I dropped it. But otherwise great board.

Works well, would love another PCIE slot but who needs 3 GFX cards? Looks nice, easy to install my AIO on, bargain high performance Mobo. Highly recommended!

I chose the Asus 970 Pro gaming because, and I cannot lie, i am a sucker for LED. The board itself is not bad, however. I will warn people that the software for the LED's are... shall we say...minimal. I have as of yet been able to control the sound LED's.

It does, However, have a good number of system fan headers, as well as decent BIOS software.
