First Mobo broke down in 24 hrs, but Amazon.com replaced the same without any hazzles.
Now working fine.
Advisory: The 'supported Memmory module' chart on ASUS.com website mentioned that this board supports upto 1866MHz of RAM spd, but when i tried to tweak my RAM it shows 1600Mhz Max in BIOS. So I had to return my 8 GB RAM (1866 Mhz) speed & replace it with 16 GB(1066Mhz) with $10 difference.
I love the sound quality as I am v old fan on Creative products.
Good performance while O.C. CPU
Supports for variety of other peripherals.
This motherboard is very good quality and was manufactured using high quality components. I'm happy with the layout and had no space issues when installing the peripherals. One thing that I really like about this motherboard is the on board LED's that indicate whether or not the components (RAM, video card, CPU, LAN connection, etc.) are being recognized. This takes away the guesswork of troubleshooting potentially faulty components, something that can be extremely frustrating when the computer doesn't start up on the first attempt and you don't know which component might be faulty. Fortunately, this system loaded the first time I fired it up and I didn't have any major issues.
The BIOS menu is very user friendly and offers a host of overclocking options. I'm not really into overclocking since it can shorten the life of the components, but I highly recommend this motherboard to those who do want to overclock. The only option I changed was adjusting the RAM speed to 1600mHZ instead of the default 1333mHZ. I might tinker with the overclocking options later, but for now everything is working well. The system is stable and I'm really pleased with this motherboard. The SATA 3.0 components are all lightning fast. It's also an ideal motherboard if you want to use multiple video cards. The Corsshair V supports up to three PCIE 2.0 video cards. Also, the onboard HD audio means that you don't necessarily need a separate video card. As soon as you plug you audio cable(s) into the sound port(s) it should automatically detect.
On problem that I did have was that I had to reinstall the LAN driver from the CD that was included with the motherbaord. Not sure why it didn't work the first time, but when I installed Windows 7 and loaded all of the drivers from the included CD there was no LAN network present. Reinstalling the LAN driver fixed it.
If you're looking to build a top end gaming system, or if you work with resource heavy applications I highly recommend this motherboard.
