Very Good Board

Pros: Very good board so far, everything hooked up fine (though see below). My old 2tb 5900 rpm drive now rates 5.6 vs 5.4 on old sata i mb. running 16gigs ram and phenomII x6 cpu and HIS 6950 radeon card bought at same time under win7. LOTS of connections and options. Don't OC things so nothing to report there.

Cons: A lot of stuff all gets plugged in on one side of the board so planning out cable management is a good idea. Put your vid card in last unless its a tiny $20 something. Also plan ahead with your hds. I have a largish case and it still took time and thought in a few places.

Overall Review: I see way too many reviews with high tech rating bashing a mb because it wouldn't support a full load very fast ram. Yet it's the CPU that sets the upper limits on the ram speeds for the most part. You can get ram that is faster than any cpu will currently support, especially in quantities of more than 2. If you don't know what is responsible for what in a modern system you DON'T have a high or moderatly high tech level.

Really Nice

Pros: Lots of fun, dock definitely worth it. works fine with home network and picks up more networks than phone or laptop with stronger signal. came with nice cleaning cloth. Plays movies and netflix fine. hulu plus available. combo deal with dock a plus.

Cons: you have to jump through a few hoops to install flash (google it). and the speakers are a tad quite (fair considering it's a tablet).

Overall Review: Recieved in 22.5 hours from order with default shipping due to being shipped from nearby state and ordering before 1pm central time.
