Works for me 08/02/2013
It's been running for two months now. Works great. OC'd CPU to 4.6GHz. (1.3V) Absolutely stable!
I installed Mushkin memory from previous triple-channel system. I had 6 sticks of 4GB each, 2000MHz rated. I took 4 sticks and OC'd them to 2400MHz (1.6V). 11-13-13-31. Absolutely stable!
Temps idle around 40C and max out around 65C under Aida64 stress test.
MSI Control Center is a neat piece of SW. Will be useful to newbies.
I'm using a RevoDrive X2 as system drive. Works perfectly with this board.
All in all, couldn't be happier.
UEFI BIOS is cute, but for my part, it just adds a layer of complication to an already complicated exercise. Documentation sucks (nothing new there, of course). Spent couple of hours on internet figuring out that if there is no input box, you just start typing anyway.
You should plan to spend some time getting to know this bios.
