Is not cheap but worth the money Easy and intuitive UEFI Bios Very good WIFI If you not going to OC that one of the best bords out there Careful with aftermaket coolers ex: Hyper 212 EVO block pci slot and ram with tall heatsink
This is a very impressive board. Works brilliantly in Windows 7, the wifi is perfect, haven't tried overclocking but it doecps give you that option, and at this price range I expect it will be quite capable of overclocking haswell cpus, although its worth noting that haswell cpus can get very hot with even modest overclocks, so its worth buying a good cooler to keep them down. Also the i/o shield has thick aluminium foam on the inside, which made installing the board trickier than expected, you can probably remove it but I didn't think of it at the time. I installed it inside a Bitfenix Prodigy, which I would also highly recommend along with this board to anyone looking to build a small rig without increasing the cost at the expense of performance.
Everything works fine after the network drivers are installed. Wifi antenna is magnetic so it easily sticks to the back of the case, a nice touch. The IO shield is very high quality, it has good labelling and is black, which makes it look really nice in a black case.
