Pros:

So far so good with this MB. It performed well right away on the first powerup. It idetified my processor correctly but didn't set my RAM up (set it to lower freq)... No big deal this, this is to be expected. Once I entered in the values and saved, this took it.

Cons:

PCIe clip release next to NB cooler is very hard to reach if you need to remove your videocard. You'll need a pencil or something to stick in between the card and the cooler to push the release clip in.

SATA III controller takes about 3 seconds to ID my single SDD during a reboot.

Onboard sound didn't work out of the box with my 7.1 speakers. I had to re-assign the audio outputs to get 5.1 sound. Still working on getting 7.1 up. Realtek software isn't the best...English translations in the software are...odd.

Other Thoughts:

Make sure you update the BIOS !! Versions prior to v.82 have a bug that will power off the machine when doing a soft reboot if HT is enabled.

MB does have a CMOS clear button on the board. Had to use this once because I was experimenting with a QPI setting. Well, ahem,... My setting was wrong it left me with a machine that would not POST. Opened my case, hit the button, powered up - she POSTed fine and re-entered my CMOS settings. Nice to have this.

I did have to make contact with EVGA support once so far. I had a reply solving my issue within 24 hours. Good customer support is hard to get nowadays, so I'm happy to maybe pay a little more for this.
