Never got past install
Pros: Looks to be great build quality, and fits the E-ATX like it is stated on their website.
Cons: Never got to install due to PCI-E 16x overlapping CPU-1 by about 2 inches with a Quadro 4000 graphics card. I don't see how any card would fit there in the first place as close as it is to CPU-1. Partially my fault for ordering this hoping things wouldn't be as tight as they looked.
Other Thoughts: Since the 2011 chipset has only a few boards out there I am going to try the next model up the X9DR3-F. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me I suppose...
