I have not personally worked with this particular motherboard - but I just replied to another user on this site who is having thermal issues with the same model. Check out:http://www.geekstogo...rd-t193659.html
If you go to the post above, you'll find links to another site that documents thermal issues with this particular motherboard model.
As someone who personally hasn't worked with this motherboard - I won't go on record as recommending it or discouraging you from purchasing it. All I know is what I've read from the user on this site as well as the linked site that is within my other post.
I can say that I've personally had good experiences with ASUS motherboards. They tend to cost a bit more than other boards out there - but I've consistently had good results when building systems with ASUS motherboards. This is ONLY my opinion - so take my advice for what it's worth. If you're interested in researching/comparing motherboard offerings out there - I would recommend checking out:http://www.tomshardware.com/us/
For several years - I've found this site to be a GREAT resource when it comes to comparing & evaluating the latest & greatest PC hardware that's available.
Hope this helps.
