Pros
Solid Build
Lots of expandability
no problems
Cons
a little tight to fit everything in
Summary
This is a great board and has delivered excellent quality for home movie making computer. the only bad thing about the board is that it is a little small to fit everything in together but that is to be expected from an 1155 mobo and all i did to help was buy a EATX case so i could fit my hands in better

Pros
Great Board, great when it worked....
Cons
ASUS RMA, Support
Summary
As long as you don't run into any problems with the board it's great and has a lot of features. Recieved a dram led and would not POST. Been dealing with ASUS RMA for a month and just sent in my 2nd board for repair... frustrating.

Origional board was a ASUS P8Z68-V Pro, Asus sent me a ASUS P8Z68-V Pro GEN 3 - Still would not work.

Happy with NCIX

Pros
- has all the bells and whistles, great for overclocking.
Cons
- finding and updating drivers for Win 7 was a bit of pain.
Summary
Bought it around Dec 2012. I coupled the motherboard with i7 2600K and Noctua D-14. As a result - a stable 4.8Ghz overclock, no issues so far. I am quite happy with the performance.

06/05/12
Experience: 4 Months
Pros
Onboard power & reset
Pretty solid
Comes with internal USB bracket
Uses a LOTES CPU socket
The Intel LAN is great. No need for NIC.
Black SATA cables
ASUS UEFI is actually pretty good.
Q connector for front panel
Easy overclocking switch.
Cons
No PS/2 port. Had to buy a ps/2 to USB adapter for my keyboard.
Onboard sound is not the best.
SATA cable locking system is extremely cheap. I broke two of them.
VRM heatsink mounting is not ideal. Uses push pins instead of screws.
Glossy PCB.
Onboard Power & Resent buttons light up.
Summary
This a great motherboard. I've used ASUS products for a while and I will continue to do so. All the cons are little things not worth docking a star. Just to note that the on board power and reset buttons light up when computer is plugged in. Even when the computer is powered off. This is annoying because I have a windowed case and when I go to sleep those lights are bright. But this is not much of a big con because they light up to remind you that your computer is being powered to prevent you from working on it with power on.

Pros
- Build quality
- Features
- Cost
Cons
- None
Summary
Bought this originally for my new build, but returned it shortly thereafter since I switched to an ivy bridge processor and didn't want to bother with using a bios update  to add support for my new cpu.

great board all around, just wasn't what I needed after.
