Exclamation Asus Crosshair

I have reciently seen the ASUS Crosshair, read reviews and here is what I got...

Expert reviews- good
User reviews- lights of lights and nothing good

Does anyone know the truth,
I want to build a system around that motherboard but I do not know if the board is good or if it just had alot of bells and whistles.

hmm, i am not sure, as tough Asus makes better boards for Intel platform on Intel chips, but for AMD, MSI makes better boards. even though I myself use ASus for AMD. so in that case i'll stick with opinions of users == lights and lights and nothng good

I think there needs to be more than just saying it has lights and lights, there needs to be a reason behind why it is not good, from the reviews I read it has better Bios options then most boards, it has all the extra stuff, and True sli support, ect. I need a reason not to buy this board, I need a good Reason
