Watch the return policy 01/16/2013
I was happy with the board for a couple of days. I had all the features I need and it ran very well when paired with a couple of SSDs in a RAID array.
I bricked the board on day 3 when I used the windows utility to upgrade the bios (it was a year old). Even the recovery method, via removing a jumper would not work. I'm knocking an egg off, since I've flashed many BIOS (HP) and never had a problem.
I was eager to get a replacement board and Newegg's policy on this is rather strict - they won't cross-ship (send a new board immediately, when backed by a credit card) so I had to wait for them to receive and inspect the product). Then, it took another another two days them to do that. I should have gone through the manufacturer, who, I believe, does cross-ship.
