Easy to overclock, Runs DDR3 1600 very well. Well built. my 6th and 7th gigabyte board. This is the 1st gigabyte board I have owned that can run the trial version of Windos 2008 server. All others have hung on the bootup.
If you are not going to mirror 2 drives it only has 8 sata ports. 2 are mirror only. or 2 drives can be connected as 1 drive to the os. If you really need 10 separate drives, this board cannot do it you will need an add on card.
All the drivers on the CD are old. I had to download newer drivers to make the Windows XP and Vista stable. The CD is enough to get you up onto the internet to get the newer drivers otherwise they system is jerky.
Your case will need to have room to connect the sata on the end. Many cases that have the hard drive cage turned sideways on the inside, may not have enough root to connect the sata connectors at the edge of the board.
