Wow, I just got this today. The first thing I have to say is the quality of this board is just ridiculous! I upgraded from an asus m3a79-t deluxe popped in a 8350 along with G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB 18666. The UEFI BIOS is just wow. I can't believe I thought the old BIOS was cool. Overclocking the memory and proc is a breeze. This BIOS give you ULTIMATE control. PCIe 3.0! I highly recommend this to a power user/gamer.
The only problem I can possibly see is depending on the case you have - the heatsinks on the board are just so massive that it may interfere with after market cooling systems. (i.e liquid coolers.) I fit my H80 no prob.
This board will keep you in the loop for the next couple years, until they come out with DDR4 or some other outrageously fast tech. In all honesty this thing is a power house, I highly doubt you will burn up the board. BUY IT!!!
On a side note don't use the ASUS PSU calc - it's junk. It reccommend that I get a 1200w PSU. I'm using a 750w and its perfect.
