unjustifiable price 04/09/2008
never arrived DOA, great chipset (do your research), heat-pipes keep the board nice and cool (as promised), excellent cooling options & fan headers, decent RAID, nice BIOS features (albeit flaky), Ubuntu (Casper) self-configures nicely.
the socket does not secure the processor into place as well as i'd like it to. the memory slots are in an inconvenient location (which has caused problems), or at least relative to the sideways motherboard HSF mount (which has ALSO caused problems), and i had to RMA this board one because of EZ Logo.
this is my third M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition, and in my humble opinion, it's a really average board with a lot of gadgetry - like a dollar store brand swiss army knife.
