Pros: Well appointed board, great overclocking potential.
Cons: Problems with DIMM Slots, not thrilled about SATA port locations on internal connections
Other Thoughts: First board went in fine, but PC wouldn't post. After a lot of screwing around, it turned out that there was a problem with the DIMM slots and only one stick of memory, in one slot, would work.
Exchanged through ASUS...very, very annoyed about no advanced return option, even if secured by a c/c.
Second board, no problems, runs like a champ.
