Aaron,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great board the UEFI is FANTASTIC and easy to find your way around.
My Advice is that you prepare and get the latest UEFI(BIOS) update files and pretty much on your first boot flash it with EZFLASH USB utility. otherwise you might get the USB overvoltage warning and shutdown as I did. just switch off machine, unplug PSU and reset the cmos using the jumper.. leave for a few minutes.. put the jumper back into default position and get back into the BIOS and use the EZ flash as i said.. follow the instructions in the manual for which USB to use.
Remember though make sure you either have an up to date windows 7 disc with USB 3 drivers with it or have the driver disc to hand and the windows 7 Ultimate SP1 i had didn't have usb 3 drivers.. no biggie as i lobbed in a PCI usb card and problem solved.
That is purely a windows issue and not this board.

not a biggie though.. with a fresh install of windows 7 on this with an i7 4770k and OCZ Agility 3 240GB ssd
8GB Crucial Ballistic sport and my trusty HIS ICE-Q 6950
and using the ASUS fast boot settings in both BIOSD and the drivers and utilities supplied... boot to desktop in 11 seconds!
also if you are using an SSD for a boot disk visit this link for further optimisations you will NEED to do
http://www.thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/optimization-guides/the-ssd-optimization-guide-ultimate-windows-8-edition/

these are tweaks that are easy to do in both windows 7 and 8 and will know a few seconds off your boot time AND extend the life of your SSD.
all in all a GREAT board and i highly recommend it

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Convenient layout, good spec, comprehensive BIOS options, lots of display outputs.
Bad points:
Not much clearance for RAM if large CPU heat sink installed. Couldn't get my 1.7v memory to work on the board, but then 1.7v is outside the recommended range for Haswell. Interestingly only 6 mounting points.

Good points:
Good basic board. Purchased this to replace Gigabyte Z87-D3HP which would not work with HIS 7950 IceQ Graphics card. I now have a stable system. For a change tried different brand but went back to ASUS as they are reliable and of good quality. I should have stayed with ASUS in the first place.

H, Livingston

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Asus motherboards are always good.
The Asus manual is very comprehensive.
Worked first time as always.
Bad points:
The board only covers 6 of the 9 ATX fixing points, so the board overhangs at one end. This makes fitting some of the connections slightly awkward.
