INSANE SLI AND OVERCLOCKING
Pros: GREAT MB! I purchased this board to try and overclock my Lynnfield i7 2.93 quad core CPU. Well what can i say. I ended up over 3.8 GHz stable with little effort. I was so amazed i just cannot beleive it. My CPU is water cooled and didnt even really register a heat increase. get this at the current price. It comes with OCing CD that has 5 "button" options for u to try outside of bios (V3, V6, V9. V12 V15 and AUTO). I was considering an extremely expensive CPU and new MB but this is all i needed and i cant be happier. Best FPS over 100 and even 200 in COD and JUST CAUSE 2. Nvidia 460s in sli for video as well. A WINNER FOR SLI AND OVER CLOCKING! BUY BUY!! WIE 7.5 7.6 7.8 7.8 6.7
Cons: NONE! well made me wanna cry to see better CPU speed then u can buy anywhere.
NOT FOR WIN 8
Pros: Works well on win7 even though i get messages saying that i need an update when i dont.
Cons: I went to upgrade my desktop and laptop to win8 because i wanted to take advantage of the upgrade price while its initially what i can afford. The ONLY program that i have installed on both systems that windows 8 tells me that wont run its this software. After asking Corel support what they have planned I was told they have nothing in the works to migrate windvd pro 11 to windows 8!? however they have many other products that are compatible, just not the one that i just purchased TWICE in the last 2 months.
Overall Review: I cant beleive that while the windows 8 release has been pending for over a year Corel is currently selling a product that will not work and have no plan for it to ever work. Now i have to either buy a new product or never actually upgare my PCs to anything other then what i have now if i wver want to use my 2 blu ray players.
