Pros: Nice looks, stable power, SLI capable, mATX, ROG board
Cons: Price, whir sound when psu shut off
This is an awesome mobo. I paired it with a 770 and a 4770K, and I couldn't ask for anything better! I got it from NCIX the day it came out on the shelves, and since there was no image, I was a little skeptical, but couldn't wait any longer, and it was totally worth it. The ONLY (I mean the ONE single thing) bad about it is when all power is cut (not just a shut down), the board makes a sound that sounds like a dog whistle diving for like .5 seconds. It personally doesn't annoy me, and usually people don't cut all power regularly anyway, so I didn't even take a star off for that. The heatsinks are also very good looking, and I personally like this design better than the previous maximus series. Good job Asus, I would recommend this product to anyone that is making a high end compacy rig.
