Overally a very good X99 motherboard for it's price if you compare it with other high-end ones. My only complaints are: only 2 fan headers along with CPU fan and only one reinforced PCI-E connector. You can clearly see that the second graphics card is bending more. I chose it because of it's ATX form factor and overall features.

Amazing motherboard, the UEFI BIOS from Asus is, as usually, amazing, and the whole board looks really cool. It has plenty of USB ports at the back, really nice connectivity all around the board, and once again, I couldn't ask for more. I used to have a Rampage V Extreme, but the red accents wouldn't fit my blue/white/black theme. And it was an E-ATX mobo, which wouldn't have fit into my case anyways.

For me the best 'bang for the buck' X99 'cringy rgb overkill' board on the market. I like the bios, its overall build quality and the customizable leds. I don't like the slow Aura software and the fact that many people have RMA'd it. I hope mine will last forever.

Extremely user friendly BIOS. Fan connection placement leaves a bit to be desired. They are all clustered at the top of the board for the most part.

This motherboard, had some bad press off the go with users complaining of DOA arrivals and other problems. I've had a lot of skeptical buyers ask me how it is running over the last 6 months. In my own experience the motherboard has been great, and still is running smooth. I run a lower overclock and a reasonable voltage, that overtime has been very stable. The motherboard has more than enough connections, and I still haven't utilized the m.2/u.2, thunderbolt connection on the motherboard, and the many PCIe slots. Overall- would recommend!

Great motherboard for my needs. I haven't done any crazy overclocking so I can't exactly ramble off choke and mosfet stats to you. It's definitely an older motherboard so the "STRIX" logo above the rear I/O and ROG logo on the heatsink are nothing more than stickers that you have to peel off to replace. The board comes with reddish orange ones preinstalled but there are green, silver, and pink ones included in the box. However, there is a strip in front of the "STRIX" logo, a "Republic of Gamers" heatsink, and all of the PCIe clips have integrated RGB lighting. I kind of would have liked to see more than 2 USB 2.0 ports on this board (one standard, one optional) but I can understand that USB 2.0's on its way out. A big reason I picked this board was because of its large selection of USB ports on the back. I have, however, had some issues with this board but it may be a one-off thing as I purchased this on clearance. There have been times when my PC would boot just fine from an off state, but for whatever reason, only the USB-C and USB 3.1 ports would be active. I spent like 3 hours once trying to figure out what was wrong and even got an RMA form from ASUS before finally figuring out that my USB ports were turned off in Device Manager? Very strange as this never happened with my ASUS Z97 board.

Don't buy this one, I had to RMA this board 2 times in a row and still didn't get it fixed! Asus service center is very incompetent when it comes to repairing their products. I'm still trying to get them to buy it back from me. Problems with the motherboard: Can't overclock, bios is just not letting me overclock, I put the settings in and it never turns back on? Its not stable, while playing some games, the computer just dies for no reason? 1 slot of memory is still not recognized. it has happened before and still is a problem Asus service center Asustek is one of the worst repair centers out of all the companies, they had my motherboard for 1 month of cumulative time, and I still can't overclock, and its not stable? Conclusion: Stay clear of Asus, even there new motherboard for the 8th gen coffee lake have bios problems, go gigabyte or msi!
