Pro Good built in sound
The board supports 7.1 digital surround sound with great clarity, which is great for games that support it as it is can be helpful to gameplay when hearing sounds in certain directions.
Pro Easy to optimize the CPU
The board has a built in optimizing tool that will allow for easy overclocking as well as control for power consumption. It will also allow for auto adjusting of the PCs fans as well as set per app settings. While some may want to do all of this manually, for the uninitiated it is quite easy to click a single button to get better performance out of their setup.
Pro Good USB options
This board supports USB 3.1 type A and C meaning it is pretty future proof as well as versatile due to all of the options USB C connections allow.
Con Mounting issues
The I/O shield on the board tends to be in the way, is quite flimsy and also is to be avoided as it can cut your hands. This makes installing the MOBO troublesome and maybe a bit dangerous.
Con Third party tower coolers may not clear RAM
The RAM slots are pretty close to the CPU, which means if you are using or plan on using a third party tower cooler, it may not install due to the RAM positioning.
