Pros: Everything, very nice and easy to handle and use.
Cons: Just like many other reviews, everything seems to work fine, but every 5-10 minutes or after trying to download any drivers or trying to surf the web it will randomly freeze and reboot. The hdd led will turn off, but the actual computer and all the fans will continue to run, and then it will just restart. I am very disappointed with this product so far.

Cons: ITX, lack of more than 2 ram slots, lack or more than 1 pcie slot (kinda), WIFI ANTENNAS DO NOT MOUNT CORRECTLY!
Other Thoughts: Biggest problem is the wifi antennas DO NOT mount to the I/O shield. You can open where they go and put them through, but when you try to lock them in place with the nuts they screw 100% tight and do not hold them still. The I/O backplate is using thin punched-out metal that is too thin for them to grip onto. I had to use jbweld to hold them still. If you don't secure them they can spin as much as they want and possibly damage the cables that attach them to the wifi card.

Pros: Board worked fine for a year and a half, and then one day one of the buses burnt up. Power supply is fine, the board was simply faulty and ASUS will not cover it under their warranty.
Cons: I will never do business again with ASUS after this encounter, their customer support is extremely sketchy. They will do anything in there power to keep you from speaking to a manager. The phone number that I received with my email regarding the RMA has been continually unreachable. I cannot express my disgust with this company and wish that I would have never given them my money in the first place.
Other Thoughts: My recommendation is do not do business with this company they will do anything possible to avoid covering the warranty.

Pros: I have been building PCs since 96, and overclocking since the Celeron 300 up to 450. I have some experience. This is a great board for the price.
I have used it with a Pentium 2 core K type processor and a i5 4590 unK type. Except for the following problem which you should check out before buying to make sure the clearance isn't too close.
This board has the smallest clearance at that point b etween the connectors of all I have seen, so just check if your case's usb 3.0 connector is slightly larger than usual, and as well the width of your power supply connector 24pin.
Cons: The power to the motherboard thru the 24pin rectangle connector is too close to the USB 3.0 front connector to use with "SOME" Cases. I used an ANTEC 302 case along with an EVGA 500W power supply. It does not have enough room to fit well, I bent the pins in second row of the USB 3.0 connector to the point of being unusable. Luckily, I had a PCIeX1 USB 3.0 board that fit into the small slot connectors in back area of case, and it had a USB 3.0 front blue connector just like the motherboard had, and was able to connect the USB 3.0 connector from the Antec 302 case into the board easily. IT also added two usb3 ports.
Other Thoughts: Everything else great for price. Seems pretty stable for mild overclocking, not an extreme board of course, but has a lot of options to use to get a stable speed. I used a 3 pipe CoolerMaster cpu cooler which worked well with the 2 core.

Pros: The latest and greatest chipset from Intel meant to host the super awesome Skylake processors!!
Cons: This motherboard came in the PC I bought from iBuyPower. This board caused frequent crashes to desktop and black screens. At first I thought it was the drivers for my video card (R9 390) however after trial and error it was in fact this board. Luckily updating the BIOS to the latest firmware version remedied the issue and it was rock solid after the fact. However, I'm disappointed in either GB or Intel for allowing defective mobos into the consumer channels. As a long-time tech enthusiast and IT admin I know what I'm doing but if someone non-tech savvy had to deal this this.... *shudders at the horrific though*

Pros: Not really any . . . Has some nice control over fans and stuff, but Corsair Link, which could be the only thing more unreliable than this MB, was supposed to handle that aspect.
Cons: Everything runs slow, starts slow, motherboard loses its setting all the time and I have to reset in CMOS. I have 128 GB of RAM running at stock speed, so it should be stable, but it is useless, so a terrible waste of money. I have never owned such an unreliable _____ as this motherboard is, and it was way to expensive to be such a troublesome _______. Buy something else, anything else.
Other Thoughts: Just sooooo sorry I bought the MB. Way too much maintenance just to keep it running . . .

Pros: Good motherboard, design is good and performance is better than expected.
Cons: You need some technical skills, it's more of a DIY motherboard, I ran into a few problems but managed to fix them myself.
Other Thoughts: Good motherboard, I tried installing it over an existing Windows 10 but it kept crashing so I just performed a clean install of Windows 7 and reinstallation which took some time but eventually all worked well.
The only concern I had was that after plugging in the power supply and attempting to boot up the PC, it starts the computer and turns it off immediately for a second then starts it up again and continues the boot up process (only happens when PSU is turned off and back on). I heard that it is doing so to check for faulty PSU but I'm not sure if that is the case, perhaps someone else can confirm that for me.
