Great little motherboard! Hate the sticker though. Once removed, the motherboard looks a lot cleaner. Managed to achieve a 4.8 GHz OC on my 6600k using the AI Suite OC Utility.

i choose this mobo as it has what i wanted and needed and a lots more. bios its very easy, allsuite is superb to monitor/overclock and set up fans i give it 4 stars as there are some minor flaws (in my opinion) that product in the price range and line should not have. otherwise happy so far.

Was happy with my MSI z170i pro gaming, but I bent the pin while removing the CPU :( Decided to get the Asus z170i board because it was the only one available at microcenter. So far everything has been good. USB 3.1 does crash my external hard drive though for some weird reason.

Great little motherboard, only complaint is that it's black and red, like 90% of other motherboards in the market.

Easy to work with, used the ATX version a couple times in builds. BIOS is easy to navigate, and I haven't had any issues with them before and it's pretty feature-full for an ITX board, so I figured I'd just get the ITX version for my build.

Great so far - Love Asus Mobos. The only thing this doesn't have is a USB-C connector which is a shame. But didn't want to get the comparable Gigabyte 170 Gaming as it get terrible WIFI reviews.

from completed build I promise it's only small because it's cold.
I needed a board that was cheap but good for overclocking on & settled for this. I was nervous at first because all its reviews on newegg are terrible with some even saying that its m.2 didnt actually support pcie without a hyper kit. I got scared when the mobo wouldnt detect my 951 & neither would the windows installation software. I scoured the net for days looking for a solution, all the tech sites and youtube but nothing that they suggested worked. I got the solution by accident by reading an amazon review of the product. Turns out, all i had to do was get a usb boot of windows 10 which would recognise the drive, install on that which would make the mobo recognise it to. How odd. (A good way of getting people to upgrade to it though i suppose).

Great motherboard. Only complaint regarding installation was the thickness of the IO shield, which made it a bit tricky to set the motherboard directly against the standoffs. Even after installation it still sticks out a bit far for my preferences.
Feature-wise, the motherboard has been great. Overclocking is a cinch and everything about the motherboard is very easy to customize.

I had a nice economical motherboard picked out, but then I found out that M.2 hard drives are pretty much the same price as standard SSDs. Then the hunt for a reliable mobo with proper M.2 support was on. Turns out this was the least expensive one that I trusted. It comes with a lot of neat features and has been working great so far. The WiFi was actually great to get the computer up and running until I was able to get an Ethernet cable for it.
