Pros:

Very, very nice board. You don't really do any better than this. Tri-SLI plus an extra x8 slot for a SAS controller (or quad-SLI), LGA 2011, Xeon friendly, runs ECC memory without complaint. The onboard POST readout is a nice touch.

I suppose a second NIC would have been nice, but I can see how they may not have had any PCIe lanes to spare... still, the absolute best LGA2011 board that there is.

Cons:

Docking an egg for it's lack of granular controls - the last board I had was an Intel Siler, I miss being able to define fan behaviour with total flexibility per port, and the Intel tuning utility was a lot cleaner and easier to deal with.

Also, I wish that the board was geared a bit more towards stability than O-M-G UBERCLOCKING. It's running $2000 worth of chippery, Intel knows what they are doing and if it was possible to make this stuff *reliably* faster they would already be doing it.

Other Thoughts:

My board shipped with the "Liquid Nitrogen" jumper enabled, and it would hang on POST quite often before I caught it. I mean, really. LN2? Sounds like a totally insane way to torture very expensive kit to death to me.

The POST readout is in a bit of an awkward spot, most top-mount PSU installs will have cables running over it; would have been nice to see some kind of remote mount for this.
