Pros: VRMs, Memory Profiles/Overclocking, Onboard Wi-Fi
Cons: Buggy BIOS, SSD issues, Dead sound chip
My first issue was with flashing the BIOS, I had a couple of issues with unsuccessful flashing or flashing and my SSD would no longer work. I tried multiple SSDs, the solution was unplugging all the SATA drives while flashing the BIOS. I never experienced this on any other build so I thought it was quirky.
When overclocking the CPU I would set everything in BIOS and then 90% of the time I would get to windows and my CPU would be running 3.8GHz no matter what I set it to in BIOS. I tried the 3 most recent BIOSes and they didn't fix the issue for me. The only solution was setting the frequency in Windows with AI Suite II. Kind of disappointing.
These first two issues I thought were just bad luck, I encountered a handful of people on this Forum with the same issues. Very disappointing for an almost $200 board.
After about 40 days my sound chip died on me and I had to use a dedicated sound card. At this point I had enough and RMA'd with ASUS. When I get a replacement, hopefully these issues are fixed, but I will likely just hold on to my ASRock Extreme6.
