Pros:

Great motherboard, ATX, runs all my hardware VERY well. Could not be happier with the motherboard itself.

Cons:

I docked it 1 egg because one of the SATA cables that came with it was bad. This issue has been haunting me all month. Poor boot times, lag up the wazoo, apparent disk failures. I almost shelled out $100 for a new HDD, and blamed it on WD. Which wouldn't have fixed the issue. Tried a different cable, and it was awesome. Still had to reinstall the OS because of all the things i tried to fix it.

TL;DR The motherboard may be awesome, but if you cant use it cause the bundled SATA cable is messing with your HDD, it's a problem.

Other Thoughts:

I hope newegg has free shipping on SATA III cables. And it would be nice if the manufacturer shipped me a new one. But all in all, im just glad i found the problem.
