Pros: Looks awesome.
Onboard LEDs are cool and helpful.
Multiple BIOS options allow you to pick which one works best for you (classic mode, advanced mode, etc., although it took me a few tries to figure this out.)
Cons: Some sata ports are difficult to connect to because of how it lines up with my case.
Had a few issues when first booting, hence the egg being docked. It had trouble detecting the correct SSD to boot from and when I changed the boot order it didn't seem to go through the order correctly the next restart. I did some reconfiguration in BIOS and restarted again and it is working fine now.
My CPU cooler blocks the 4th RAM slot because the RAM is pretty close to the CPU
Other Thoughts: Had to change the RAM Frequency from 1300 to 1600 in BIOS, it didn't automatically detect what my ram was supposed to be running at. It was very easy to find and change this in the bios.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as a great replacement for my old i7 950 bloomfield. No issues and I can't wait to overclock it eventually.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I had to purchase this because my old motherboard died and they didn't make the socket anymore. Went with the latest and greatest from Intel. Not disappointed!READ FULL REVIEW
