Nice layout with plenty of expansion. FAST!
The first board died. It suddenly quit while I was loading OS. Next try did not get as far as the first and then, after several attempts, it shut down as soon as the boot attempt. Called NewEgg and found them to be very helpful and understanding. Gave me a refund so I could get another board on the way. Thank you NewEgg. This board is up and running perfectly. Could not ask for more. Let's see how it does after 3 months and I will update. SATA connects are on the side. Not really bad if you have a large case.
The I7- 3280 processor seems very much at home on this board. No problem with temps and it works like greased lightening.
