Great looking motherboard , lots of features that I still have to use if I ever need it . Love the vertically mounted dual M.2 . AURA Sync RGB lighting is really great. You can overclock the hell out of everything which I'm gonna try in the near future .

Great and interesting looking motherboard. It has more features on it that I will ever get to use. This was my first RBG lit motherboard .... actually RGB anything. It is a little bit longer than your typical ATX motherboard so keep that in mind. I put this in a Corsair 400c and the power supply shroud was difficult to get back on. This is no fault of the motherboard though.

The two main things that gave me a problem was the placement the chassis fan and full speed fan headers that are very close to the two CPU power connectors. You will likely need to remove your rear fan to get to these pin headers. The other complaint I have is that I could not move my graphics card because the first slot is the only one to support x16. I would have liked to see the second PCIE slot to support x16. I wanted to move the graphics card down one to have less stress on the hybrid cooler lines.

Incredible board. It does exactly what you want it to do without much issue. However, with that being said when I was building with this motherboard I noticed that the pins in some places were very flimsy and couldn't handle much stress or any stress. I was constantly checking for bent pins whenever I was plugging or unplugging things and when the board was already in my case that added to the challenge. Other than that I love the board and look forward to a long life with a board that can handle my current needs as well as my future needs.
