Extremely user friendly BIOS. Fan connection placement leaves a bit to be desired. They are all clustered at the top of the board for the most part.
This board when released had many issues and I personally have the Asus x99-A II so I know how it feels. It needed a BIOS update to get to version 1401 before it really started becoming stable. Since this was ordered at least a month after that final BIOS update was released I was a bit perturbed it didnt ship with it but that is the only reason it is 4 stars and not 5...
This motherboard, had some bad press off the go with users complaining of DOA arrivals and other problems. I've had a lot of skeptical buyers ask me how it is running over the last 6 months. In my own experience the motherboard has been great, and still is running smooth. I run a lower overclock and a reasonable voltage, that overtime has been very stable. The motherboard has more than enough connections, and I still haven't utilized the m.2/u.2, thunderbolt connection on the motherboard, and the many PCIe slots. Overall- would recommend!
For me the best 'bang for the buck' X99 'cringy rgb overkill' board on the market. I like the bios, its overall build quality and the customizable leds. I don't like the slow Aura software and the fact that many people have RMA'd it. I hope mine will last forever.
