Extremely user friendly BIOS. Fan connection placement leaves a bit to be desired. They are all clustered at the top of the board for the most part.
This board when released had many issues and I personally have the Asus x99-A II so I know how it feels. It needed a BIOS update to get to version 1401 before it really started becoming stable. Since this was ordered at least a month after that final BIOS update was released I was a bit perturbed it didnt ship with it but that is the only reason it is 4 stars and not 5...
This motherboard, had some bad press off the go with users complaining of DOA arrivals and other problems. I've had a lot of skeptical buyers ask me how it is running over the last 6 months. In my own experience the motherboard has been great, and still is running smooth. I run a lower overclock and a reasonable voltage, that overtime has been very stable. The motherboard has more than enough connections, and I still haven't utilized the m.2/u.2, thunderbolt connection on the motherboard, and the many PCIe slots. Overall- would recommend!
For me the best 'bang for the buck' X99 'cringy rgb overkill' board on the market. I like the bios, its overall build quality and the customizable leds. I don't like the slow Aura software and the fact that many people have RMA'd it. I hope mine will last forever.
My Motherboard had some issues with Ram slots not being reconized and on bios 1.003 it was completely unstable, but asus took it and fixed the Ram and updated the Bios to 1.501 which is stable and I was finally able to overclock my ram and cpu to a point where I was happy with it.
Amazing motherboard, the UEFI BIOS from Asus is, as usually, amazing, and the whole board looks really cool. It has plenty of USB ports at the back, really nice connectivity all around the board, and once again, I couldn't ask for more.
I used to have a Rampage V Extreme, but the red accents wouldn't fit my blue/white/black theme. And it was an E-ATX mobo, which wouldn't have fit into my case anyways.
Overally a very good X99 motherboard for it's price if you compare it with other high-end ones. My only complaints are: only 2 fan headers along with CPU fan and only one reinforced PCI-E connector. You can clearly see that the second graphics card is bending more. I chose it because of it's ATX form factor and overall features.
