Love this Mobo and it has many options and a good look to it.
My only negative feedback which isn't really a big deal is if you use a cpu fan like the hyper 212 fan, the fan gets in the way of the 1st slot of your ram. I'm kinda forced to either limit myself to 16gb for the time being unless there is a short profile ram I can alternate.

Reliable overall, have one board loaded with 64GB on an i9 that is stable.
Unfortunately this motherboard is plagued with audio issues. On the board I bought for my own build this last summer, the audio output jack on the back of the board does not function,though the audio out on the front of the case still works, so I run my sound off of that. Wasn't a big enought issue to RMA the board as the system was already built when I discovered this deficience, and it is quite a complex build (plus didn't want the added downtime, etc.) Thought it was going to be a one-time thing so was willing to give the board another try. Bought for a customer build which is an i7-9700K, and to my disappointment not only the back audio is out, but the front as well! This was again after lots of work to build/setup a system, so we got a bit burned on it. Bypassed the problem this time with a spare PCI-e audio card I had in my shop.
In addition on that system we ran into a RAM compatibility issue with Kingston DDR4 2,666MHz modules. Shouldn't have been an issue, but it was creating incredible stability problems, with random BSODs, etc. Brought back into my shop & found the problem. Fortunately Gigabyte had released an emergency BIOS update to correct this very issue (version 12c), so installed this and afterwards it passes all the tests and is as stable as my other system. Yes we were screwed on audio, but at least the overall system builds work well. Will be going back to Asus in the future, as we've never had any major issues with their boards in the past. Funny thing is that the system we were replacing in the second example above had an Asus board with the X58 chipset, and it's audio has worked properly since 2010!
