Now with that out of the way. I love this board! Looks great, Lighting is Awesome. Fast and the bios and tweaking you can do is great.
The long story:
My motherboard failed (it no longer went to post when providing power) just barely outside of the return window with Amazon - a little over 30 days of moderate use. I had to initiate an RMA with ASUS to warranty the product. The process works like this: You send the board to a repair center in Indiana, a technician runs diagnostics to see if it can be fixed, and is then either repaired or replaced with a "recertified" (refurbished) replacement to return back to you.
I had to ship the motherboard at my own cost - about $20. It arrived about 5 business days later, and within a few business days upon receipt of the board, the repair status updated in the 'repair status' window of the RMA online tracker that the repair center was waiting on replacement parts. After about 8 business days upon their receipt of my motherboard I was notified a replacement was shipped. 5 business days later I received the "recertified" board.
I want to note that ASUS assures customers that their recertified product is not the same as what other companies might call refurbished. To become an ASUS recertified product, the repaired devices require extensive testing and quality control checks before they are sent to the customer.
I received a motherboard from the ASUS RMA center completely missing the on board WiFi/Bluetooth module. It's a component that is emphasized in the product's included features. Instead, where the WiFi hub should have been, was an empty PCI-e port. I called the repair team and went through three tiers of technical support explaining how ASUS sent me an even more defective product. I was told that I had to initiate a new RMA, and was given an expedited shipping label as compensation for my inconvenience (after I demanded for one). They still refused to send me a new in box product. I asked for an advanced replacement (a ready to ship "recertified" board at the warehouse) but they had no stock to do so.
I asked to be escalated to a higher level supervisor. I spoke to someone who was clearly in the United States (I'm not so sure everyone else I spoke with previously was, even though ASUS claims their customer support line is based in Indiana). We had a very professional and polite conversation. She explained that despite all of ASUS' failures, she had no ability to compensate me with a new in box motherboard. She mentioned that it is not until the *second* time you are given a replacement board from the RMA center that the company can consider a new in box replacement. She was "very surprised" of everything that had happened to me, but also seemed all too familiar with customers having issues with repairs...
I once more shipped a defective product back to the repair center in Indiana. Two business days transpired. While at work I received two emails from the courier notifying me that the repair center rejected my package with the reason being that the business was not open. I called the customer service team and again had to go through three tiers of technicians to determine that the agent who drafted my shipping label provided an address missing pertinent information. They offered to contact courier to update them with the correct address. I said, "Thanks but no thanks - I'll do it myself".
As of this review I'm one month into, now, my second RMA for a product failure I had no control over. ASUS customer service is so embarrassing that it has broken my trust with the company. I have happily used their products for over 15 years, and sought out their product over any other. Now that I have had this experience, and seen their apparent disinterest in keeping my brand loyalty, I see no reason to champion them over the myriad of other attractive options in the future.
*Edit* I received my new board and sent back my new one. Working like a charm and have a stable OC @5Ghz-1.30v. I'm sure i can get it tuned lower but it's fine the way it is now. 5 stars now because amazon has great customer service.
Very nice looking board with a tasteful color scheme. Overclocks my 7700K 5.2GHz easily at 1.392V. The on-board audio is alright I guess, a step down to a $30 Creative sound card in my old system. The only real problem I had was memory compatibility. As this time of writing, the latest BIOS is 0607 which is just the first release version + optane update.
So I was getting the RLOD and the system would not POST. ASUS Customer "Support" had no clue and was slow to help so I did a lot of testing/tinkering myself. I currently have 2 sticks of Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz 16GB (CMK32GX4M2B3000C15W) and it's listed in the QVL. No matter what I put for the timings/speed, manual or XMP, it would not POST from a cold boot (sometimes it boots, most times it wouldn't). When everything is on default it works fine. I decided to run this at 14-16-16-31 2400mhz @ 1.2V (Corsair sells a kit with this config) and passed a standard 2-hr memtest, 0 errors. Bummer, but I'd take a working PC at this point. I'm expecting a BIOS update in the near future though I might just stick to this config. The system runs cooler and haven't had POST/cold boot issues since. A quick google search about the problem would tell you everything from "loosening screws from your motherboard" to "bad display port cable" but nothing about your RAM. Hopefully this can help someone out there with similar troubles I had.
EDIT 7/27/2017: The motherboard died due to BIOS 0808 update. Never solved the XMP issue that's plaguing this board. I now have the Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5 and has zero issues with XMP (15-17-17-35 @ 1.35v), no crazy high temp spikes like before. BIOS 0808 had since been removed from ASUS' website. It's a shame that everything else about this board went right but cannot get the BIOS to do the same.
*Stay away from the STRIX line and ASUS in general.*
