Adrian, Mansfield Expert PC builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very nice, compatible, easy to install and ready for future updates. Supports SLI and CrossfireX so you can really go to town. Fan control and over clocking features are excellent and so is the sound. AS far as I'm concerned why would you ever need more from a motherboard. Finally it's by Asus I've had loads of their boards and they've always been brilliant, this is no exception. I'm looking forward to getting an I5 6600k for Christmas and teaming it up with my corsair H100i v2 cooler and see what I can do to overlook it as at the moment I'm using a Pentium G4400 and over clocking doesn't really improve it much in my opinion.

Roodoff, Bridge of Allan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy set up and install. Over clocks very easily and is stable. Has all the options you realistically need. Don't see why for gaming purposes you would look anywhere else and spend more money.
Bad points:
Nothing really. I would have liked an overclock to be visible in the first BIOS page, without having to go to the advanced. But that's me having to try and think of something I don't like. The board is excellent.

Gary, Dungannon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Came with the new Doom game for free.
The motherboards colour scheme is attractive once installed into the motherboard
Flashy motherboard lights would look good in systems with a window
Boot times were very fast with this movie
Feature packed with good over clocking utilities and a useful network prioritisation utility for gaming
Solid uefi layout
Bad points:
The led lights can be a bit of a nuacance as they remain on after shutdown however they can be turned off
SupremeFX is not as great as it could be, however at the price it's more than acceptable
