Pros: 2x pcie slots running x16 was the main reason i bought this mobo, also it being on sale with a rebate.
It looks great with all the gold and black.
I have had no issues with the bios or anything else yet.
Cons: The first pcie slot is blocked by the gold heat sink. This is preventing me from putting my sound card where I want. I have resorted to placing it in the third pciex8 slot, limiting my second slot to x8 also as I am running xfire 7950's. This also forces me to have the sound card very close to the lower gpu, limiting airflow to the second card which is worrisome.
Other Thoughts: I wish I had gone with an asus mobo, but am satisfied with this mobo for my first build.
If i was able to use an extender to move the sound card to a different location I would be very happy with my setup, but have been unable to find a solution that looks clean
