Reason not to buy this board?

Just looking for opinions as why one would go for any other board in this category/price range. It seems like it's a steal, which makes me think I'm missing something. Anyone have alternatives around the 200$ price point or reasons why I shouldn't get this board?

Requirements:
- Socket 1155
- >= 7 SATA connectors (Minimum 2xSATA3)
- >= 6 USB connectors
- SLI/Crossfire Compatible with decent slot layout
- At least two available PCIe slots available with 2 double-slot gpu's installed (Wifi card and sound card)

I've looked at the new UP5 and UP7, but the UP5 costs more for less and the UP7 (which I'd love to get) is just too expensive. I've checked other brands, but they all seem to be in the same category as the UP5; costs more for less or equal.
