Pros
Easy to overclock. Great temps. More features than I can use.
Cons
BIOS is a little complicated. Probably wouldn't use the H2O cooling on board.
Summary
This motherboard is fantastic. I'm running 4G of the cheaper OCZ 1600 Platinum and a q9550, and within about 4 minutes of entering the BIOS i have it at stable 3.6GHz (fsb 1700) with fairly good temps.
I got it as an NCIX open box, and i figure the components other than processor will be switchable with a nehalem board.

Pros
The overclocking on this board is nuts. There is enough voltage in the bios settings to immediately fry the board. The board layout is awesome and is meant for some good cable management. There are so many plus's that it is hard to name them all.
Cons
The stock cooling is not the greatest and I just replaced it all with EK Waterblocks all around. Makes for even higher overclocking.
Summary
This is by far one of the best damn motherboards I have ever bought. It's performance really rocks and the tweaking capabilities are almost limitless. You could spend hours...hell even days just playing with all the settings to get the optimal performance you want if you don't want to use the automatic functions. If your just a casual gamer then this is not a board for you. But if your a hard core enthusiast who loves to tweak and do benchmarks and play games at retarded screen resolutions then this is the board for you!

Cons

Summary
I bought that mobo for my Q9450 based rig. Gonna wait for 4000 series to come out so I'll think about a 4750 crossfire. The board is great with 4x1 gb ddr3 7-7-7-20 from patriot. The board have water cooling on chipset but will require fittings if you have 1/2 tubingthose fittings are included in the package. Also there is a nice lcd that give you informations about post sequence. I just receirved my box with only 1 optionnal fan while there is 2 heatsink to cool, don't know if it is normal but I'M fully satisfied, would buy again... in another life!

Pros
Asus Quality
Ease of overclocking
Lots of flashing lights
Cons
Really tight with the PCI slots, but thats to be expected with three PCI-E slots, theres barely room for any airflow to the video cards if you use two or more.
Summary
I'm using this board with a QX9650 and Patriot DDR3-1333 2x2gb ram and it just FLIES. I have my system running at 4.0ghz rock stable 24/7, but this mobo could easily handle more. The northbridge cooler is sort of a gimmick, I threw some leftover watercooling parts on it just to see what sort of temps I get and they are better than just using passive, but not by much. The bios is very easy to use and there's just a load of features on this board that make it a great overall package.

Comment: "ASUS is back at it again; this time in the pole position of X38-based motherboards with its Maximus Extreme edition which has more bells and whistles on it than a circus side-show."
