Pros: Very Upgradeable. Up to 8 gigs of memory and 6 sata ports along with a dvi port which you don't find on very many motherboards.
Cons: Make sure you have your info from your hard drive backed up because you will have to wipe it clean. The chipset will not allow you to boot the drive if you don't. You will not be able to load any drivers. You will get a stop error. Also overclocking stability isn't very fantastic. I overclocked my black edition from 2.8 to 3.2ghz and it shut down the cpu. I reduced down to 3.0ghz and I've had no problems since. Just be careful don't challenge it too much.
Pros: Arrived in 3 days
Cons: Having a lot of issues with it. Getting a stop error everytime I try to boot up Windows XP. Tried safe mode installation of ATI Chipset Driver because the driver cd won't boot up that did nothing but get me yet another error. I put my hard drive back into original computer and it works perfect so it's not the hard drive. Once all these issues are hopefully solved I might have something positive to say.
Overall Review: Very disappointed considering I bought this motherboard because of the high praise of others. If anybody has any suggestions please let me know.
