I upgraded the motherboard/cpu/ram in my build using windows 8, all I had to do is plug everything in and it all works! no reformatting needed :)
The bios is very extensive and is UEFI so it can use a mouse.
SSD speeds are good, and the audio is more than enough in my opinion (I am coming from a X-Fi titanium and I thyink the quality is just as good).
a stupidly large number of USB3 ports are there and theres plenty of SATA ports too (which plug into the side I might add, a much better layout).
I cant imagine any reason to buy a more expensive board than this one for Haswell, it does everything already and if your overclocking the money can be put towards better cooling (Haswell overclocks are more thermally limited anyway).
