Best motherboard I've used in years!

EVGA 141-GT-E770-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Best motherboard I've used so far. if you're doing 3 way SLI and still want a dedicated sound card this is one of the very few boards out there that has the right order and spacing of PCIe slots to do it (you can even add a dedicated physx card if you have a case with 8+ expansion slots too!). On-board power, reset , and clear cmos, switches are extremely useful if you are benching with this board and you even have an error code / cpu temp led readout. The bios is one of the friendliest I've used in a long while especially if you are doing any overclocking (it does the calculations for you as to your target clock and such). and to top it all off the aesthetics of this board are beautiful, the north bridge heat-sink has an EVGA "E" logo on it that pulses like a heartbeat with a red LED to go along with the red and black of the board. Honestly this is THE most stable motherboard I've used in years. Also EVGA's customer service is SECOND TO NONE....I never had any other company stand

Cons: There is a fan that is put on the north bridge heat sink that blocks you from putting a sound card in that PCIEx1 slot, however with proper airflow and the right case you won't need the little fan (I took mine off). The only other thing I can think of is that the audio header is up near the PCIEx16 slots and your case connection will be mashed down by your graphics cards (if you have a sound card with a header connection on it use that instead).

Overall Review: you get 8 profiles for your clocking, save your defaults in one of them and remember where you put it so you can always go back to it if needed. EVGA has a huge and extremely helpful forum community....if you run into questions or problems just head over to the forums.

Most Critical Review

Delayed shipping :(

Pros: good protein source, goes well with cheese and bacon http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16800996160 still waiting for newegg to get in 8U773r3d 70@$7 to complete the meal.

Cons: Eggs arrived 3 days after my bacon did. I was planing on making breakfast in bed for my GF...it was late and she saw the bacon...the surprise was ruined :( Takes too long to cook on an LED back-lit Skillet.

Overall Review: Next time I'll use expedited shipping, need to order a 460 FERMI External Exhaust Skillet with my next round of eggs.
