Very sturdy and reliable. It's got a bunch of features that I'll probably never use, but it's nice to have.
P.S. It does have a big red number at the bottom, so it might clash with some builds. It wasn't nearly good enough of a reason to drop a star though.
Very nice features and good Interface.
Very happy with this board, looks great and has all the features I was looking for. No problems so far, happy with the purchase.
Love the features, hate the aesthetics. Unfortunately, the pursuit of a visually impressive board has created problems for ANYTHING placed directly above it. Fans, CPU cooler, Etc. The plastic I/O Audio cover is bulky and unnecessary and gets in the way. Otherwise, it is a wonderful addition. The one real plus for this board is its onboard bluetooth and wifi capabilities over its Z170 family counterparts. The wifi is equivilent to an $80 expansion card and it works pretty damn well. With the exception of the AI Suite 5, the Asus software that comes with it is pretty standard, but neat nonetheless. Having been formerly unfamiliar with the AI Suite 5 and others like it, I find myself impressed. All the information about your computer is easy to access, including fan speeds, current temps, current overhead TDPs, cpu frequencies, and more. Recommend this board if you do not have a wifi card, however, the Z170-A is a good alternative.
Used the automatic overclocking feature to overclock my CPU to 4.6 GHz. The built in WiFi/Bluetooth is really nice so I don't have another board taking up a pci slot which also keeps the inside looking clean.
Still figuring this mobo out. Issues with RAM and XMP profile even after updating BiOS. Otherwise, Solid board with everything you want to include mass USB and built in WiFi/Bluetooth. Would recommend.
Excellent product, certainly a bit overpriced for the functionality though. Wifi integration is amazing, and I have had no issues.
Careful putting it into your case though - my case is very tight around the external interface bay, and the plastic cover over that made it challenging to set properly into my case. Once it's in though, it looks fabulous and is highly functional.
Little tinkering needed during install, but works well now.
You pay for the best, you get the best.
This mobo has loads and loads of features making OC'ing and customization very easy and I have yet to discover them all. If you're looking for LED's, ASUS has better boards for that (now with RGB as well).
I have to take off a star (was debating taking off two) because one or two of the rear USB ports will randomly decide to not work on bootup, so I'll find that my mouse or keyboard doesn't turn on. Funny thing is, it's never the same port and it seems very intermittent. I just have to keep rebooting until everything works. Normally I would just RMA but since it's a mobo, that is way more hassle than it's worth
