This motherboard is all I can ask for, Looks awesome with the ROG logo RGB feature and performs well with an i7.

This motherboard looks outstanding in my opinion, and was purchased for this reason. I haven't had any issues, and would recommend it to anyone with a side panel window.

Great MB. You just have to go down the rabbit hole to make it work.

Super cool motherboard I have ever owned (though I may not need the bells and whistles). Hey I just gave $500 profit to Apple, why not $100 to Asus? :D

3 stars as i did receive a DOA unit and the 2nd one was very fickle until updating the Bios via the flash tool. It appears to have settled down a little now. I also had a hard time figuring out where everything went by just reading the manual, admittedly it is my first ever build so inexperience played a part there. May be a tad unjust with 3 stars.

Has all you need for a top build with the new Skylake CPUs.

This motherboard is great and very easy to learn in the bios. The EZ mode in the bios is very easy to use because you can have it automatically overclock the CPU and manage the case fans very easily.

Great motherboard with plenty of sata connections and a great red and black color theme.

Fantastic board, looks amazing and the heatsink can be removed and soraypainted via the screws in the back. Rog logo led is fully rgb customizable. PLENTY of fan connectivity, and high quality componentry.

I bought this mobo because it had every feature I could want and has fantastic looks. I really like the Bios so far while OCing also which is a huge plus. If anybody has bought Asus products they know how well this company packages their components. Before even using the product it makes you want to order more parts from them(Maybe that is just my addiction to building PC's).

So far I don't have a negative to mention.
