Pros
Fast and with a lot of features.
Cons
Not a lot of space between the CPU and RAM SLOTS.
Summary
I had the same problem as Marius_S, I ordered the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 LGA2011 and it's too large with RAM that is to high like the "Corsair Vengeance Black CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10".
I had to switch back to the Noctua NH-U12P and install it with the screws in the Noctua NH-D14 kit. I still had to move the fan 1/4 of an inch up to make room for the 2 sims close to the heatsink. Lucky I have a big case!
Since this board is a quad-channel i did not want to put my RAM on the far end slots on each side... and I did not want to return the RAM since it was at a very good price. I also had 4x4GB DIMMs out of 2 Kits of "Corsair Vengeance CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9 12GB" that I wanted to add with the 4 DIMMs of 8GB I just ordered. They are the same height...
Conclusion, make sure your RAM is low profile or that your hearsink is not too large.
I checked and maybe I should have bought the "Noctua NH-L12 LGA1155/1366/2011"

Pros
Asus Quality
Room for expansion
Excellent Bios
Cons
LGA2011 prices
Summary
Using a mouse at bios level is so nice.
New bios interface is well set up.
Coupled with an I7-3930, H80i, I installed this into my old rig with everything that I had. I now need to get more ram, but it is still super fast even with only 4 x 4Gb ram. My SSD went from a Windows index of 7.2 to 7.9 with this board. The ability to run up to 6 fans on this Mobo should work for any system.

This board is built for performance. No Bottlenecks.

Cons
none
Summary
Very good board for a 2011 system. It is very reliable (like every ASUS products).

Pros
Works OK so far, it started from the first try.
Cons
A big CPU sink (Noctua) will prevent use of some DIMM memory slots.
No standard PCI slots.
Summary
It works fine. I used a Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 LGA2011 and as consequence there was no space to mount the 4 memory DIMMs as recommended. The slots B1 B2 D1 D2 could not be used.
Fortunately the 4 memory DIMMs work fine in A1 A2 C1 C2 slots.

Pros
easy to update  BIOS. Fan Xpert. CPU BCLK works great(for my 3820)! SSD caching! really amazing RAM overclocks! good quality MB heatsinks!
Cons
a little bit of a learning curve finding certain settings in the BIOS... but thats kind of a given for any overclocker.... takes forever to load the intel Network adapter driver.... so im unable to use internet right after boot up.....
Summary
I have had the P9x79 for over 6 months now, I still love it! ASUS is still doing a great job of BIOS/driver updates. boots super fast in W8 as long as the settings in the BIOS are right and no disc inserted in my BDRw, takes less than 5 seconds befor it starts to load Windows, something to do with UEFI, I'm a little confused by it honestly, but its FAST is all I know... I love the smart fan feature, 6 fans controlled by software. The GUI in the BIOS is awesome too. decent onboard audio and Intel network cards are awesome!

Amazing new BIOS interface, work perfectly
Cons

Summary

Pros
Great price
Full array of features
Lots of sata ports
8 Dimm slots
Availability
Great overclockability
Cons
Color (planned a black and white build using a different mobo)
BIOS not compatible with i7-3820
Summary
I waited a month for the Asus Extreme4 motherboard, but after a month of no stick, switched to this board.

It is a solid board, with a lot of higher end features. It was however giving me horrible stability issues with my i7-3820, but a quick BIOS update  fixed it like a charm with no issues since.

My CPU is OC'd to 4.6GHz and never gets over 61C with Prime95. My only complaint is the butt ugly blue. The rest of my system is a black and white color scheme, as the other motherboard was supposed to be black. Oh well, this does what it says it does, and is cheaper than most other boards.

I cannot remove a star for CPU compatability, as intel released the CPU after the board, and a quick BIOS update  fixed the issue perfectly!

Pros
Great features, well-planned layout, value per dollar spent is high.
Cons
Does not work out of the box with i7-3820 and 1st-2nd release BIOS.
Summary
I bought this board 2 days ago for the following build:

Corsair 650D
i7-3820 w/ Corsair H100
Asus P9X79 Pro
16GB Mushkin Redline Frostbyte DDR3 2133

I installed everything, powered it on and...... nothing. It sat there with the rather unhelpful QLED code of "AF", and occasionally "65". After reseating, checking for back-posts, swapping RAM, I was about to give up on this board. Then I found a post on the web about adding support for i7-3820 via the latest BIOS.

The redeeming quality of this board is the USB BIOS flash feature. It is immensely useful in these types of situations and proved its self quite handy. Once I had flashed the BIOS with the latest version, things were up and running.

If you're on the edge about this board, buy it if you can find it around $300. It has great features and longevity for the money you're spending.

Pros
- Feature-rich ASUS motherobard
- No silly PCI slot
- Lots of fan headers
- 8 DIMMs for upto 64GB of RAM
Cons
- None and hopefully it will stay that way
Summary
- So far, very happy with the motherboard.
- Though for ~$10 more you can have the Saberkitten board, I did not care for silly armour and especially for the silly fan over the heatsink, just one more thing to go wrong on the mobo.
