Works Great 04/09/2009
This review is from: EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Works great, smooth and easy to use. Have not done any OCing yet, but that is yet to come. The jacks bracket is padded, which is nice because less air is likely to be sucked in or blown out from it, a small nice touch. Plenty of fan ports, I've run out plenty of times on past mobos, and they are strategically placed around the outer rim of the board. Digital # on the mobo reads internal temps, and it has a start button on the board incase you need to test it before placing it into a case and hooking up the connections, which is always a hassle. SATA ports are angled out, away from a video/PCI card, plus a couple ports are placed around different areas.
Plenty of fan ports from the motherboard, but what is strange is that there isn't one near the West side of the board near the jacks, for the back case fans. It wasn't a problem for me, as my fan cable was long enough to travel under the motherboard and into another port.
I haven't had it for much more than a week, but it has worked well with everything I've thrown in it. Have not tried to OC yet, but I don't have any doubt it will rock my i7.
