Summary

Experience: 50 Days

Pros

Overclock, bios options, little post screen, built in sound
Cons
Heat
Summary
The people who are saying that the sound card doesn't work should make sure that they RTFM because it has to go into the black pci-e slot otherwise it won't work. The northbridge on this motherboard, as it says in a few different reviews, does run a little bit hot but it's roughly the same temperature after an overclock. It likes living it large around 52-55 degrees. At first I was going to look into other cooling options but the system is very stable.

Pros

Lots of features, looks good.
Cons
NB runs hot despite all the copper, mine doesn't overclock well.
Summary
I'm really disappointed with the overclocking of this board. Went from a DFI Blood Iron, Q6600 and Ninja Rev. B stable at 3.4 to this, a Q9450 and Thermalright Ultra Extreme. The cpu temps are down but the NB temps on this board are way hotter than on my DFI despite the crazy heatsinks. Maybe I got a bad chip but I expected better overclocking. If I still had it I'd swap this into my DFI to see if it's the chip or the board.

Pros

overclocking options
stability
package contents
Cons
price
bios version
Summary
i'm running this mobo with a q9450. asus did not update the bois of this board so it would not recognize my cpu. therefore i had to flash the bios. for the price, i kinda expected to get updated bios. other than that the overclocking options are great, the package content is very good and the board works perfectly! if have ati gpu this is the board for you eventhough i use with nvidia but i don't like multiple gpu usage...

Pros

-Professional overclocking board
-Great sound
-Asus Quality
-Great positioning on the board
-Easy Bios
-Clearing the CMOS is crazy easy
Cons
-Absolutely none so far.
Summary
Just built a new comp with this board. Went from an AMD 3200+, Corsair 2GB w/ an ATI 1650. To a Asus Maximus motherboard, Intel Q9450, Corsair 4GB DDR-800 (4-4-4-12), 150GB WD Raptor HD w/ a 512MB eVGA 9800 GTX. And all i gotta say is wow!. Spent $2k on this new comp, but after 4 years of not upgrading, i'd say it was worth it. I Absolutely love this board, Asus is by far the best.

Pros

Awesome overclocking board.
love the clear CMOS and RESET buttons, very nice.
Capped capacitors look very nice!
Great sound quality.
Don't have any problems with location of Plug-Ins.
Cons
South bridge is capped which is inconvenient.
Summary
Wicked board, Love it, Would buy it again. my q6600 works great! with ocz 2x2gig ram. 3.4ghz, with 1133 mhz ram. like the bios. good options relatively easy to use.

Experience: 3 Weeks

Pros

LCD Poster, crossfire support with full 16 pci-e lanes on each slot, comes with Stalker game and full version of 3DMark06
Cons
bios update needed for 45nm cpu support, finicky with Crucial Ballistix RAM
Summary
I've had this motherboard for a few weeks now... overall it's a good motherboard and considering the prices of the newer x45 and 790i motherboards this is a pretty good price.

I expected it to be a better overclocker though... I haven't been able to get over 500 Mhz FSB.

Also it's been really picky about my Crucial Ballistix RAM... I've had 2 sets of Ballistix die on me with this mobo... the second set dying while running everything at default, stock settings.

Pros

Look, Temp, Price, Performance
Cons
Overclock
Summary
I love this mobo, however, I can't seem to overclock very well with it.... maybe it's just mine since reviewers say it's pretty good at it...
