    Excellent motherboard that incorporates great aesthetics with good overclocking capability. The two RGB headers are very useful for anyone looking to incorporate RGB capability into their build while being controlled through the motherboard's software. The red accents can be easily covered with vinyl cutouts to accomidate different colour schemes

    Incredible motherboard! Very, very nice BIOS/UEFI which makes controlling everything very easy. Logo is RGB.

    Has everything I need, really easy to OC, no issues in the hardware. Only one odd bug (BIOS?) is that sometimes when shutting down the LEDs and fans stay on while the actual system is shut down.

    Overpriced for some flashy bells and whistles, but I got it mostly for the (buggy but functional) integrated RGB headers. Upgrading the BIOS wiped my settings, which is annoying. Lots of control options though.

    I've seen this motherboard lineup time and time again in people's builds so I started researching about it. It comes with plenty of features and programs, lots of PWM fan headers, extremely friendly bios etc. Overall, its just a really solid motherboard and I had no troubles overclocking.
