Pros: Purchased this board despite reviews due to a good history with EVGA products. Immediately updated the BIOS upon arrival and I have not looked back. My overclocks are on the mild side, but I have had no issues with it doing anything I have asked it to do. I will note that I am only running it with two sticks of Corsair Platinum Dominator RAM and that many of the issues seemed to manifest with all 4 slots in use from what I saw in the reviews. I had no problems seating my heatsink flush to the chip (EVGA Superclock), and the board worked great with my original GTX580 TriSLI and my current GTX680 SLI configurations. For what I paid, I got a great motherboard.
Cons: I still paid too much. This board hit the pricepoint of $99. Driven down by all of the negative reviews, I guess. I bought it when it was $199. Wish I had paid less.
Other Thoughts: EVGA has been good to me. I wanted to buy their product as a result. They continued to work hard following the release of this board to address its issues and as of this point in time, I feel like they have done so. I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another one if the need arose.READ FULL REVIEW
