Review Date: 12/30/14
Cons: - Drives are not very well designed- Not enough SATA cables

Pros: - Solid and reliable hardware- Compatible with many peripherals
I was planing to buy another model of Asus mobo. But that one ran out of stock, so I have no choice but to use this one instead. As usual, this model does not fail me. NCIX staff were so nice to help me to do the pin check. Good service by NCIX, I would say !The worst thing about this mobo is the drivers. Some drivers require admin access during log on. It is very annoying to see the popup every time you signon. And that is for every driver (that require admin right), which means you might see multiple of them. Very bad design ! Because of that, I can only 4 stars.

Review Date: 09/04/14
Cons: DOA like many other reviews on other sites

Pros: Great motherboard
On paper this is a great motherboard for the price with a nice three year warranty.I went out and bought another one locally since I needed this computer ASAP and it works like a charm.
