issues from day one
Pros: Great price, got this unit when it was on sale for 299.99.
Cons: Received the board on the Friday and had to wait for a local vendor to order the intel thermal solution for the cpu's. mounted everything last night and went to turn it on. would post turn on and then complain that the intrusion detection was tripped and the system would halt. Had to clear BIOS to get around this issue, now the machine turns on once and you get into the bios and make sure that all settings are correct and when it reboots it turns on for roughly 10 seconds and then turns off. tried to turn it back on and it won't, I had to clear the bios settings again for it to turn on. If you load the defaults and save and let it reboot the cycle repeats. CPU's are supported under the current bios version and am using registered ram that is in the HCL for that board. Something is wrong with the board.
Other Thoughts: I've purchased asus motherboards for all my desktops that I build and I've never had a problem before until now.

Ignore the other poster
Pros: Solid server motherboard.
Cons: None really, runs a little hot, but not to the point of making me worry.
Other Thoughts: The other poster seems to be mistaking this for a desktop motherboard, which it is NOT.

Pros: Awesome capabilities if you don't care about high end video
Cons: The design doesn't allow for big heat sinks. I had to send mine back because my video card (EVGA nVidia 9800GTX+) extended to the top of one of the processor. This really sucked!!!!!!
Other Thoughts: i didn't get it from newegg because it wasn't available at the time.
