Pros: Overclocks the 2600K like crazy. 5GHz on stock air, 5.3GHz on Coolermaster V8 air, 5.6GHz on LN2.
EFI BIOS is great and easy to work with.
Runs cool, stable, plenty of features.
Cons: I bought the old version way back in January before the SATA flaw was discovered. Haven't decided if I'll RMA. It has 4x unaffected SATA connections.
Takes a little time to get used to working with all the BIOS bells and whistles, but once you do, the board flies.
Other Thoughts: I tried the ASUS P8P67. It's an ok board, but not even close to as good as the Max IV extreme. It would barely take a 2600K to 5GHz on LN2 - unstable; whereas the Max IV hits 5.5GHz - 5.6GHz with the 2600K on LN2.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got this card to see how well it would bench compared to other cards on Hwbot. Upped the voltage to 1.3v and pushed the clocks as high as 1025/1425, but could run any 3DM benches there. Backed off a little and ran 3DM06 @ 988 / 1404 and then had to back off to 977 / 1375 to run 3DM01, 03, 05.
Didn't get much over 40 degrees.
Cons: Than two fans @ 100% are loud. Though, you could probably back them down to 80% and be fine.READ FULL REVIEW
