Experience: 3 Months

Pros

Great Asus pedigree, ample accessories, feature rich, nice BIOS, very good and easy overclocking, stable
Cons
I could live without Bluetooth and Intel Smart Response, but it is not a big deal
Summary
I have chosen this board because I liked the layout, features and I trust the brand. I could have gone for a newer chipset design, but this one offers all the same valuable features and was a better bargain. Operates reliably, does what I want it to do with no surprises and disappointments. Just a solid performance day after day. Easy to recommend.

Experience: 7 Days

Pros

Stable, UEFI BIOS, quality components
Cons
None
Summary
I just paired this with an i5 2500k. Needless to say, I am very impressed. The UEFI BIOS is absolutely packed with options. Having the ability to use a mouse in BIOS is such a great bonus as well. Being a computer tech, I highly recommend this board. It is incredibly stable, and is packed with features for this price point.

Pros

asus dependable quality, good driver support, cpu spacing good for high cpu cooler tower (Xigametek)
Cons
Beware: Asus Support does not support bios downgrades for this motherboard. So don't upgrade to a current bios version as you can not go back to the original version. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this board does not have a removable bios and if you try to downgrade through forum advice, you may get a motherboard that doesn't boot.

Haven't tested PCIe ver 3.0
Summary
Beware: You can not downgrade your bios version to an earlier version. I went to a 64 bit bios and now I cannot go back to 32 bit bios and 32 bit OS.

Pros

very good build quality, works as it advertised and provides a lot of enhenced features such as PCIE 3.0, USB 3.0 and etc.
Cons
The auto OC tuning up software equiped with this board are not working very well, after running it, system went to blue screen.
Summary
So far so good, will consider adding another video card on it for SLI construction.

Experience: 10 Days

Pros

- Lots of options
- 3 PCI E16 is a big plus
- Solid board
Cons
Honestly, none so far.
Summary
I had the ASrock MB and I returned it because of the buggy BIOS. This board works like a dream. OC very well, goes to sleep without issues, and the BIOS is very easy and OC friendly.

Experience: 3 Days

Pros

well-labelled
looks cool
runs self-check to indicate hardware problem
Cons
back panel is not perfectly straight
sata ports do not point up
double boot (not a big problem)
Summary
as a first time builder, I found this board very easy to work with (all the ports are labelled). OC is easy

Experience: 8 Days

Pros

Great performance, quality build, tons if features.
Cons
Slow boot.
Summary
Was hoping my current computer could hold out for Ivy Bridge but it died. So I bought this board in preparation for Ivy and the new PCI-E cards which I plan to crossfire. So far its what you would expect from an ASUS board. Nothing but quality and performance. The BIOS is great and offers lots of tools for overclocking. Has some great features like TPU and bluetooth. Only time will really tell if this board will live up to its promise of supporting PCI-E 3.0 and higher end Ivy bridge processors.

Pros

- High Quality Parts
- Good Board Layout
- Built in Bluetooth
- Lots of features
Cons
- Needs more SATA ports
Summary
I usually buy Asus, but for my last motherboard I went with Gigabyte and that was a huge mistake, now I'm back with Asus and couldn't be happier. Great quality and great board.
