I'm very happy with my recent purchase with this motherboard.

ASUS has a longstanding reputation as a quality producer of motherboards and this one surely does not disappoint.

The board itself: The board and all of its components are sturdy (quality materials) and fully functioning. It has more than sufficient options with PCI 3.0/2.0/2.1, 4 SATA 6.0 gb/s hookups (2 RAID capable), 4 3.0 gb/s, and more than enough I/O options. It has two USB 3.0 ports built in and a second front attachment that provides two more ports. I actually use those two ports as internal hookups for my case and strapped it down inside my case. From an aesthetic standpoint, it is a rather sharp board though blue is a difficult color to match. I've owned it now for two weeks and am fully happy.

The BIOS: ASUS has one of the more intuitive BIOS systems. For those who are novices, there is a graphical "easy" mode that will allow you to choose if you want your processor to achieve faster than average speeds, have a relatively normal operating dynamic, or wish to go in a more power saving mode. While those who enjoy tweaking the "finer" aspects will have access to an advanced mode with everything you could desire.

For those interested, my CPU is an i7-2700k and I have it OCed at 4.6 ghz with about 1.28 vcore and 10 hour prime stability. With a basic hyper 212+ (a relatively lower-end aftermarket cooler) and push-pull configuration, my max core temperatures are only 65.

I've been building gaming systems for 6 years and have used a few motherboard companies (Gigabyte and EVGA). Asus is the latest that I've just used because I was so fed up with EVGA and their customer service.

When I bought the x58 EVGA motherboard I was experiencing some issues. The GSKILL ram i used which was on the approved list wasn't showing the correct timings as well as correct RAM speed. No matter what you did to change either issues; you would get Blue Screens of Death aka instability. To keep from this happening, I just had to let the system set it's timings and this resulted in underclocking. Non gamers wouldn't care but gamers might give them headaches. Im anal, so it bothered me every time I turned on my system. Another issue was the malfunctioning USB ports. It didn't matter whether it's the front USB ports from my case or the motherboard ports on the back; I sometimes expierenced freezing if I plugged in ie. charging my phone, plugging in my printer. I registered the board and had some back and fourth tech help with EVGA's tech service. When things seemed to be running fine, I again was experiencing some issues. When I contacted EVGA they claimed that my motherboard was registered under another person. After thinking about it, I explained to them that I only registered it and it's probably under my old earthlink account that I since closed when I switched to FIOS. I even told them my old email address. They emailed me back asking for a receipt. I emailed them my receipt (from a online retailer I can't mention here). Then they requested a picture of my motherboard in my case showing the serial number. I did that. Then I get an email stating that it's registered under someone else. After pressing them; then they had the guts to say that the board was never registered.

My reasons for buying this board:

PCI-E 3.0 support
USB 3.0 ports
SATA 6 GB/s support
Used ASUS for my past 5 builds

Really, the only difference between the PRO and the next version down from this board is the SATA 6 GB/s connectors on the board. This is worth the extra dollars if you plan on using one of the newer SSD's that support this.

The board itself was an easy install (well, easy in terms of installing a motherboard, which can take an hour or so with all the components), and I feel the quality is excellent. I had to position my Cooler Master CPU cooler towards the side of the case to avoid covering one of the RAM slots, but I was fortunate to have it pointing right at a vent anyway (Hyper 212 Plus cooler and Cooler Master HAF 912 case). Paired the board with Intel i7 2600K and Patriot Viper Extreme Division 4 1866MHz 16GB. Working well with both, no BSOD's. New BIOS is great, love the fact that you can use a mouse and the interface no longer looks like an old DOS program.

Built my dream computer over Christmas holidays using this board w/i7-2600k CPU, 16 gigs Corsair Vengence memory, OCZ 120 SSD Vertex 3 boot drive. So far no problems. I plan to overclock from 3.3 mhz to 4.5 mhz in next week or so now that I know everything is stable. Installed in Antec P280 case (quiet). Using a Zalman CPU cooler and ATI HD5870 graphics card. Runs cool and quiet. Went with OCZ 850 Gold power supply - overkill, I know - but got it on sale & w/rebate. Very efficient PS. I'm a graphic designer and don't play games on computer (yet)... Running Win 7 Pro 64bit to take full advantage of memory.

Didn't really need the /Gen3 model board but was only $20 more - I've found that after about 3 yrs, enough has changed that you might as well do a new build. The Gen3 makes the PCI slots upgradeable to the faster PCI 3 standard which is not available yet. I'll probably never use it prior to new build, but for $20 got the Gen3 model anyway.

Also didn't really need the Z68 version. P67 would have been fine since I am using a dedicated graphics card. Z68 lets you use onboard cpu graphics & dedicated graphics card. Again, price difference wasn't that great, so decided to go with the newer board. P67 model allows for easy overclocking. H67 model allows for onboard graphics option, Z68 does both. I assume if you are buying a MB that you have a graphics card. So if you want to save money go with P67 board.

Manual seems better than most... good details. I haven't read too much yet. Nice to have 4 Sata 3 (6gig) drive capability. Right now I have all drive 8 drive connectors full (only 1 Sata 6gb drive) - but plan to upgrade drives with new hybred Sata3 6gig drives when drive prices come down. Would like to have 10 drive connectors, but 8 is still good (4 Sata 2 & 4 Sata 3s).
