Did you find this review helpful?
Pros: Nice beefy heatsinks, durable solid capacitors, triple SLI/CFX capability, great price for 990 chipset, plenty of USB ports, muted gray color scheme allows for more diversified color options in my build without the board dictating the usual blue or red. Very solidly built board overall.
Cons: BIOS is a little quirky. I did manage a pretty easy 4GHz OC of my FX-6300, but there are options in the BIOS that I haven't seen on other bios' and the manual isn't much help as far as explaining. ECS' site and a google search were negative for explanations as well. Some of the original options to this board were removed, such as the on-board power and reset buttons as well as the digital code display. I would have deducted more than one egg for the removal of these functions had it not been for such a great price reduction (I bought this board on sale for $113)!
Other Thoughts: I have read the other reviews with RAM issues. I have not experienced any of these issues myself, but I have yet to run more than 8GB. I have used both the Patriot Viper 3 (2 x 4GB) 1600MHz and the Crucial Ballistix Sport (4 x 2GB) 1600MHz without issue.

Pros: Price isn't bad, considering some of the features. The BIOS is just amazing, it really blew me away.
Cons: - The SATA ports are all facing the front of the case, which can make connecting devices tricky, especially if you have rather large hands.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very pleased with the board. Part of a budget build to replace my 5 year old box. Using my Antec Kilowatt PS and 1TB RAID 0 array from previous build. I've done no OCing yet, but the BIOS leads me to believe that it will not be a problem at all to manage that.
