Firstly it's very solidly designed, clean and tidy, with loads of features - you can read the list as well as I can; everything appears sensibly placed and accessible. The LED status is very useful, as are the power/reset buttons (if only for when you're assembling the PC).
My first board was DOA (wouldn't recognize any memory), the second was dispatched quickly by amazon and I got it the next day - it had no problems.
The issue is with the the RF shielding on the back, which sticks out quite far; I bought it to go in a Corsair Obsidian 750D. It's in, but barely - held in place by only three screws. This case doesn't use the usual motherboard posts, instead having stamped raisers instead, which are mounds rather than pillars - the mounds are wide enough that they catch the RF shielding and stop the board from sitting in place for the screws. I haven't tried the board in any other case, but I assume you'd have similar problems with any case that has similar raised mounts for the board; if it just uses posts then you're probably not going to have the same issue.
The motherboard has a power and restart button, which was useful when I was breadboarding. It is also quite nice that I has two 8 segment displays that display an error message which can be looked up in the user guide.
The ram slides in on one side and click into the other, this meant that I didn't have to push very hard and I knew when the ram was clicked in.
The wireless is a separate module that also allow you to attach a M.2 SSD module onto a "mPCIE Combo II" The antenna has to be then attached to the wireless module and is placed outside the case. Usefully it is has a magnet inside and I like to stick it to my metal case. Sadly it is a bit fiddly to screw it on when the motherboard is inside the case.
When installing the cpu fan, you may find some difficulty with the screw/clip closest to the crosschill cooling armour.
The advanced bios is very easy to use but comes with many options. It is also helpful that the motherboard has a reboot to bios button because normally it startup up before I have time to press a key. It is very useful that the bios can be navigated with a mouse and keyboard and ability to create and save notes to a memory stick is very useful when debugging.
Most of the features like Fan Xpert, WiFi GO, 3.0 Boost and Sonic Radar are for Windows 7/8 only. This is a shame because I am using Ubuntu.
Also sadly the VII Formula and x99 came out, which means this board may drop in price sometime soon.
its bios is easy to use very similar to asus's standered z78 motherboard, the build in sound card, has high qaulity sounding, the armor that helps keep the motherboard getting hot from other harware thats plugged in does the trick nicely, i was easy to install into my zalman z11 plus (i know not the best case) but the only thing i wasnt impressed was that it didnt come with its own screws, but other than that its one amazing board and you wont be dissapointed with it :)
Oh yes, and avoid AI Suite III like the plague.
If I had known this I could buy any other card for that price.
