Pros: top mATX board on the market. Intel LAN with GameFirst. Extreme Engine DIGI+ II. mPCIe Combo. Onboard buttons (power and reset) + UEFI Bios..
Cons: none for me because I wanted this mATX board, I knew what I was getting. For others running dual double slot GPU's might need to fabricate spacer and
updated BIOS first thing after successful boot cycle. red LED's and illumination is a big change from all my blue themed set-ups, so it's staying on the 'test bench' for now.. this board is non compromising (good way), it just runs fast period.... watch and 'auto' settings. I also have the second best mATX board from ASUS the Z77 M-Pro and you can tell that this the Gene V is a step up from that and I love that board as well.. not a Virtu user.. cheers.
