This lil puppy is performing well! Admittedly, I could have sprung for a i5-6500, but when you can get this mobo/cpu combo $260, it was hard to pass up, and allowed my budget to go from a GTX 960 to a GTX 1060.
I haven't tried any gaming as yet, but this this chomps through any video that I have thrown at it without breaking a sweat, even at 4K.
I did have a bit of a heart attack when the ASUS GTX 1060 Turbo arrived. Before installing the card, I installed nVidia's 368.81 driver into the Win 8.1 OS and after booting with the 1060, it was like there was no driver installed.
I tried reinstalling 368.81 but ran into the 'no compatible hardware' issue. Same results for 368.95, 369.00 and 369.05! So WTF!?! Let's check ASUS site.... NVDriver_Vista_Win7_Win8_64_VER368_81WHQL.exe installs fine.
I believe that this is the first time that I needed to install a manufacturer's drivers over any from the nVidia site.
