The board is great. The price is good and there are many features. The best part is that you can overclock and use integrated graphics. Some newer Z68 boards don't allow you to use integrated because they have no video ports and I think the whole point of Z68 is to be able to use the combined features of a P67 and H67.

The board has no fans on it. This makes my build silent because everything else that I have is quiet. The heat sinks keep the board cool with good temperatures without the need of extra fans.

This board, however, had some small annoying problems. One of the main problems is if you turn on the TPU switch so that the board automatically adjusts your setting for the best stable overclocking, I noticed that the system would shutdown 2 or 3 times before it boots into an operating system. This would happen every time I would turn on the computer. In other words, once you hit the power button, the system would start up and then shut off before it reaches BIOS and then shut off again and then restart and finally boot into windows. I wrote to Asus about this problem and they said it had to do with voltage settings in the BIOS. I turned the feature off and everything was fine once it went through the process of shutting down. I guess the shutting down has to do with the board adjusting itself for overclocking.

Another problem is that you can't boot into windows if you don't have a cpu cooler fan connected to the board. This is a big problem if you are using a cooler that doesn't use a cpu fan such as a water cooler. In my case, I am using a Noctua cooler and if the fans are connected to the cpu fan connectors, they will run at full speed and I can't control the speed of them.

I have not used all the features yet but the board is great. I have an i7 2600k Sandy Bridge with a Corsair H50 cooler. It oc to 4.5 mhz without a hiccup and runs at 30c, 38c while gaming. I have an ssd with Win 7 and everything loads lightning fast. The software that comes with it is nice. I'll be tweaking things in the future. Definitely one of the nicer and more stable boards I have owned. I love it.

Build: Intel I7-2600K, 8GB G-Skill Sniper RAM, crappy old video card, Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler

I have been a huge fan of ASUS motherboards, and this is the third one for me. It is probably the most disappointing of them all, and its very possible I will not continue with Asus line going forward. Here are my observations after the build and about a week of use:

Pros:
* Solid motherboard with nice heat sinks and is able to hold my behemoth CPU fan without any issues.
* Pretty solid on overclock, and an incredible amount of control given to the user via the Bios for tweaking anything we like.
* BIOS upgradable from Windows, no need to put on USB stick, etc.
* Ability to upload custom boot up image ... but I disabled it anyway to speed up booting.
* Built-in Bluetooth connection. Of course it barely works (which has been my observation with all BT) and I have not had too much luck getting anything useful accomplished syncing it with my android cellphone.
* Good number of USB3 ports.
* Power / Reset buttons on motherboard. This comes in handy if the case is not fully wired or has issues.
* Optical-Out for built-in soundcard.

Cons:
* The old ASUS was indestructible. No matter how bad the overclock was, powering off then on always allowed MB to detect my screw-up and reset. Not this one. After a bad overclock, it kept freezing on reboot without any possibility of detecting overclock problem. Luckily a tiny 'MemOK' button above the memory bays allowed a hard reset. This of course makes overclocking awkward. I am hopeful that this is due to certain type of failed overclock, and other types of overclock failure will be detected properly.
* The SATA plugs are at the edge, with the holes facing the side of motherboard as well.

A little bit expensive but the V-PRO is decent.

The board feels solid and looks great.

Works great so far.. almost a week with this thing.

Don't forget to INSTALL THE INTEL LAN DRIVERS from the provided CD or else you won't be able to access the net. Specially if this is the only PC you'll be having in your house for the first time.

Will update thoughts about this mobo later on.

I was able to use the built in GPU from the i5 2500k with this board.

Great OC feature as well: I just set the Turbo Multiplier to x43 and automatic 4.3 Ghz oc! The board adjusted the voltages automatically. Great for noobs like me who want a simple OC.

New learning curve, incredible MOBO. Using manually UEFI to OC is difficult for perfection; THATS WHY IT DOES IT FOR YOU!!!! Really cool(C/F) board. Has everything you could ask for. Allows you to upgrade to GPU later (wait for the good deal) if you wish since the k cores can be OC and use the IGUP. the 2600k core compares better than my old ati 3870 512mb ddr4 saphire @ 802 mhz. the EVO historically has the best balance for what you get, but can it really get better than this? 4 usb3 slots; which are able to super charge your peripherals due to something ASUS has done.
