Plenty of ports, good layout, easy to connect all devices
Cons
none
Summary

Pros
Great Board
Cons
No Sata Wires
Summary
I could be wrong, but I don't think this comes with any Sata wires.

The board is great, isn't a power hog, like these video cards and I use the bluetooth on it to connect my PS3 controller to my computer. If you do that, you can't use any other bluetooth devices.

I wish it had more ram slots, but 4 is ok. Also it was 8 sata connections which is great. I have lots of hard drives, (you gotta buy more wires and connectors)

Pros
Great BIOS, Stable for OC, Looks great
Cons
Bit pricy
Summary
I've had this board for 8 months now and havn't had a single problem with it. OCed my 2500k to 4.5ghz with an aftermarket air cooler on the first go and it has been rock solid every day since. To top it off, it looks very nice with a black pcb and blue hardware.

Experience: 7 Days
Pros
Excellent Build Quality
Many SATA ports
SLI/Crossfire
Cons
absolutely none
Summary
Used this motherboard to build a computer for my friend. I have to say, this is the best motherboard I have ever worked with. The board itself is sturdy and you can tell that ASUS used quality materials. Everything is spaced out quite nicely, and the board is really easy to work with, even in a mid tower. I highly recommend this to anyone going for LGA 1155!

Easy setup, lots of clearance for RAM and CPU fans
Cons
None so far
Summary
Install was flawless, overclocking was as simple as a click in the Windows-style OC-settings. Running in Windows 7, 64 bit Ultimate edition, I7 2600K, 16GB DDR3

Pros
Easy to Overclock, build quality, nice UEFI, price
Cons
PCIexpress reduce to 8x per lane if in SLI
Summary
Over this is one of the best board I have ever work with considering I got it for under $200. Comes with lots of accessories and really easy to overclock. I have a i5 2500K at 4.8Ghz with very little effort.

Pros
Simply the best motherboard I have EVER owned! Functionality is incredible and outperforms some higher end mobos. ASUS has really outdone themselves.
Cons
None.
Summary
Like others have said... one of the best motherboard you will ever buy.

Pros
Very stable for overclocking
Looks great
UEFI BIOS
Cons
"Double boot" - long POST times
Summary
This board is wonderful for overclocking. I currently have my i5-2500k running at 4.5 GHz at just under 1.28 V - and required me to change only 2 settings in BIOS. Has lots of great features and the UEFI BIOS is a great step up from the old text-based BIOS.

The board goes into a "double boot" when you cold boot it but it seems from looking around the internet that this is a common occurance to stabilize the BCLK frequency, so can't complain too much about that.

Experience: 3 Weeks
Pros
- Most stable board I've owned in 20 years!
- Insane OC's (currently k 5.2GHz i2500k on water)
- SSD Caching!!!
- Nice heatsinks
- Functional layout
Cons
- Long POST's
Summary
I'm not kidding when I say this; this is literally the best and most stable mobo I've owned in 20 years of PC building/oc'ing. In the past I've had good luck with Asus, but found a few other brands like Asrock, EVGA to be more stable on insane overclocks with tons of voltage. EVGA has gone the way of cheap PCB's the last 2 years, and I've switch Video card & mobo brands after having a ton of failures.

I'm currently working in Windows 7 at a modest overclock of 5.2GHz on water for the i2500k and this board!!!! WOW. This is insane. The Vdroop on the board isn't too bad and I love the ability of this new chipset to compensate for it. I'm currently running very high on the vdroop correction. This board required NO pencil resistor mods for the first time in my life of owning Asus!!!! :D

The SSD caching feature on this board rocks. I picked up a 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 for $50 during the sale. Amazing caching and windows loads fully in 7 seconds.

Bar none the best feature rich board I've ever owned. I have a feeling I wont be upgrading my PC for a LONG time.

Comment: Wouldn't it be nice if you could roll the benefits of both the H67 and P67 into one enthusiast-friendly chipset? You'd have all the power and granular control offered by P67 and be able to use the tasty QuickSync video technology provided by H67. And it would be even sweeter if you could pro

Comment: This board from ASUS is a great all-round performer, compared to the P67 boards we have reviewed—space for tri-GPU setups, six fan headers with good OS fan controls, eight SATA ports, six with RAID 0/1/5/10, Intel gigabit Ethernet and it performs well in our benchmark suite.
