ASUS Striker II Extreme LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
  • LGA 775
  • NVIDIA nForce 790i Ultra SLI
  • 4×240pin DDR3 2000(O.C)/1800(O.C)/1600(O.C)/1333/1066

Pros:

I've only had this board for a few days now, but I've got to say... I've never owned a board with so many features. I experienced none of the problems that other people are talking about with their initial setups. I've got a formal education relating to computers as well as ~10 years of job experience, I would still only give myself 4/5 on tech knowledge though. my old motherboard died on me a week ago and I needed a replacement, after I hooked up all of my old hardware my computer fired right up and after minor driver changes I was up and running on the first attempt. I still need to check and make sure that it's getting everything it can out of my memory, but all in all this has been a very smooth experience.

Cons:

I have no complaints about the board, the sound card that came with it didn't work right away and rather than messing with it I just put my old Audigy card back in there. If you don't have an extra sound card lying around though, this might be useful for you to know.

I ordered the Intel processor along with this board as part of a combo deal. he processor is great, leagues beyond my old one.. but like others have noted, the heatsink is a real junker.. I would strongly recommend buying an aftermarket cooling solution, even if it's a cheap one.

Other Thoughts:

The back panel cover glows around the ports, pretty spiffy. I also like that this rig is water-cooling ready, though I am not using that feature yet, it will probably be the next thing I do to my computer. If you are going to watercool make sure to thoroughly leak test these pipes.. I read more than a couple of people complaining about them.

Ordered this equipment on Sunday night and got it in on Tuesday. Newegg is the best!
