Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Large expansion capabilities, processor was extremely easy to install.
Bad points:
Ram slots very close to the 24 pin power socket. Input/output shield was a pain to fit - just a minor point though.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Overall this is a quality motherboard from ASUS. Reasonably future proof in terms of sockets, and compatible with the 22nm Ivybridge chips. The UEFI bios screen is great, and running from an SSD hard-drive I get boot times ranging from around three to twenty seconds (I haven't quite worked out what causes the large discrepancy). Still supports VGA monitors.
Bad points:
Could do with more USB ports at the rear, as I'm currently using all six - meanwhile PCIe ports seem redundant now that USB 3.0 is here, unless you already own PCIe devices. Firmware had to be updated to run Windows 8, as it ran only once after install, and then crashed at the boot screen every time thereafter. Getting optimal boot times was a bit counterintuitive for me - I got the fastest result by telling the bios to poll every USB device (which is supposed to be the slowest setting). Stupidly tried the fastest setting, which was still slow, and disables the keyboard at boot time, meaning you can't then access the bios.

Bad points:
it never worked. I tried every combination of memory 3 different cases and psus.3 cpus also. all worked with other boards at my disposal .this new asus stayed as dead as a doornail .I got frustrated after 3 days of trying, I eventually damaged the the cpu pins on the board. chucked it in the bin. £100 down the drain I bought an msi board and with original memory, psu case and cpu that I tried and worked first.go.

David, Wakefield

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to install
Good manual/quick install guide
Easy to overclock (just by using the included Windows App my 3.4Ghz i5 is overclocked to 4.5 - could possibly get more if I went beyond the one click overclock in the app)
Boots fast! (and you can tweak the boot settings to get it even quicker)
Useful software.
Lots of USB2/3 ports.
Bad points:
Minor point - the Windows 8 upgrade advisor said the mother board didn't support the latest SecureBoot settings in Windows. So if SecureBoot is a requirement you may want to check if there is a BIOS update to support this.
