Love the 5x5x5 options, having a virtual hdd on the ram is ver convient. On paper this board was great
Got a defective board. The Sound would only output to the right speakers. I tried everything I could think of. Then noticed front ports weren't working either. Tried another board, front ports worked fine. Then did new drivers, no change. At that point I RMA'd the board due to the hardware sound chip not working right. Took it apart, all looked good and sent it back. Newegg declined my replacement due to what they say was customer neglect and pin damage. Kinda wish now I took pictures of the thing before sending it back but oh well. Just out the 100 dollars I guess. If the on board audio worked It would have been fine because it worked amazingly otherwise.
So yeah, really bummed I cant have my client's build ready till another week and having to absorb the cost of this board. Just going to buy from local dealer to save some time.
Will say the RMA process @ newegg is usualy great. But my main con is the audio not working right on the board. so beware this may be a common issue, reguardless of my experience
