Perfect on board OC tool for plebs!

One feature this board has that blew me away was the 5 way optimisation, this feature basicly over clocks your CPU to a desent and save level.
Got my I7 6700k to 4.6mhz!!! with one click of a button!
The days of going into the Bios may be nearly over with this feature alone!

Other software is also good, the Fan Xpert3 is a little bit harder to learn / understand, from other fan tools such as "cosair link," which has it very well layed out, (these two programs can / will conflict!) But you can achieve more on the Asus Fan Xpert3 program from what I can see.

I suggest people interested in this board please watch "Pauls hardware" youtube review on this board, as he goes into all the pros and very few cons this board has to offer, and shows off some of the ASUS features in windows.
