Pros: Good feature set, stable, broad processor support (including 45nm), SATA RAID support, Intel VT-d support.
Cons: Cannot overclock at all.
Overall Review: As soon as I flip the BIOS settings over to "manual" the board develops boot-up problems. It appears that I have ZERO overclock capability as a result. It's fantastic otherwise. I have none of the power-off/on issues that others describe.
Pros: No dustbuster fan, faster than my 6600GT was (unlike other people's experiences), lower power consumption (see nVidia site).
Cons: May not be suitable for cases with poor airflow. Speedfan cannot monitor VPU temps.
Overall Review: A Zalman FB123 with the fan at a quiet 5V works great for circulating a little air near the card, pushes the temps down 10-15C.
