The list of features on this motherboard is as long as the name; five PCIe 3.0 16x slots, the Game Boost overclocking knob, 10 SATA 6Gbps ports, one each of SEx, M.2 and U.2, 13 USB 3.1 ports including a single Type C, WiFi and Bluetooth … all it is missing is a game fowl in a fruit tree. [H]ard|OCP did have problems with XMP settings, but nothing they couldn't overcome via manual settings and the issues they had with the Core-i7 6950X turned out to be caused by the PSU and RAM and not the motherboard at all. If you need a plethora of storage and add-in cards then check this board out as it can handle almost anything you want to stick in it.

I just figured out that my brand new Corsair AX1500 PSU is causing my system to slow down. Maybe my Asus MB will work again.
