It's beautiful, has onboard wifi, 2 m.2 slots, plenty of sata ports, and the HD audio is superb. Only complaints come down to the high price, lack of a 3rd m.2 slot (like its z270 counterpart), and lackluster UEFI, especially at its current price.
Bios is friendly and easy to use once you understand it.
This is a solid board to overclock Ryzen with. There are guides using this exact board to OC with which made it really easy to follow along. Included dual band wifi meant I didn't have to spend $50 on an ethernet as well. Make sure to update the chipset and bois before trying any memory and CPU overclocks!
Very good solid motherboard, decent layout, runs memory at 3200mhz with out a problem.
Things missing, would be nice to have an IO block for the powerbutton and hdd light and so forth as they're a fiddle to fit.
Wifi is broken, apparently the wifi module can become attached during transit. I can't be bothered to take the rig apart to fix this.
A personal bug bear, during sleep mode it flashes the power LED and there is no way to turn this off. Apparently this is quite common among motherboards. I have disconnected the power LED.
Good looking, Extreme Value, Feature packed in UEFI and in Windows. 4 stars because of a lack of accessories and cables along with a lack of USB 2 headers I mean really 10 sata headers and only 4 cables!! Also if you have only two headers for USB 2 then give at least one splitter
A very solid motherboard. Lacks some of the comfort features that you will find on competing Asus motherboards, like Start and Reset Button. No big deal, although dual BIOS would be really nice. On upside it has VRM like miniature nuclear power station and high quality Japanese capacitors all round. RGB features are quite subdued for 2017, with only a few LED lights around the chipset. For me that is a plus. Wi-Fi is also nice feature.
RGB and fan controls are all in the BIOS. All the fan headers auto-detect 3/4 pin and let you set a custom curve. Also, the Wifi/Bluetooth is nice and it has tons of USB 3.0 ports.
I really like the look of this motherboard, although I could do without the gear aesthetic. I have updated the bios and installed all the latest drivers. I haven't messed around with overclocking so much yet so I cannot speak on it's VRM capabilities but I did change the XMP profile for the ram to 2933 to go with my LPX 3000 ram. The bios is a bit confusing and I think you have to use offsets for overclocking which makes things a bit more tricky so I'm going to have to do some more research before I oc my CPU. I do like the wireless network adapter included in the I/O along with the Bluetooth connection as well. My only complaint is that on the I/O shield there is a small prong that sticks out above the USB 3.1 Type A slot and if your not careful when installing the mb it can get bent down and block the port. I made this mistake and didn't realize it till about halfway through the build and had to pull everything out and try again. But I guess you could chalk that up to user error so I'm still giving this 5 stars.
Best board for AM4 period.
More than pleased with this MOBO. I wanted extra sata ports which led me to this, and it worked with my black/white theme. The built in WiFi works extremely well. Easy to install. Looks clean. Bios is great. No complaints!
