Pros: cheap, overclocking ability
Cons: fan control system
The PCI slots on this board are perfect. I have SLI and a PCI usb card, and still two PCI x4 slots for a sound card or something. They actually thought about what kind of components the end user would be installing. (Hint to boards with no legacy PCI: we still use it).
Overclocking is good for me, although i'm not that educated when it comes to power phase design. It got my i7 to 5.0Ghz and has been running at 4.5Ghz for a few months now. I love the clear cmos button on the i/o, it's in a good location and still hand to press accidentally.
One feature that really brought me to this motherboard was the onboard power and reset buttons. For a custom case builder, this is perfect. The only disadvantage is that now i'm to lazy to actually install a real power button.
As for sound, i'm not an audiophile but there's nothing to complain about.
Some things you must know if you plan on buying this motherboard:
-Fan control is crap (no fan curves). I just use Speedfan, and even then some of the headers are always at max.
-Great for SLI as it has triple slot spacing.
-It is thinner than most boards and will only use 6 standoffs. It's about a cm shorter than the last column of standoffs for ATX.
-Power and reset buttons with a POST indicator. Very helpful.
