Pros: Board worked out of the box, install was easy, with good layout. Running with a 1090T and dual HD 6870s. 4x PCI-e is nice and allows you to have space in between multiple GPUs to help temps. Included documentation is good. I have not utilized overclocking features but the options within the BIOS seem expansive. MSI website and update utility are nice, however, the update utility did not auto-install eSATA drivers... If you want to use eSATA drivers, make sure to install them off of the included install disk, as I could not find those drivers on their website.
Cons: The board comes only with SLI cables, which are useless to me(although obviously useful to others, and it did come with three)... I had to purchase a long Crossfire cable off of an online auction site in order to place the GPUs with a 1 slot spacing. I/O panel that attaches to your case was a bit weird, with some metal tabs that I had to bend. But it works fine.
Overall Review: Sometime I'll upgrade to AM3+ when AMD finally decides to release it... I decided to just up and buy this motherboard for future compatibility with Bulldozer after the latest delays were announced. I like the board layout and it does look pretty cool. Will edit review if needed down the line...
Pros: Runs quiet and cool, has all the cables I need, looks cool
Cons: Wish it was modular but obviously I could have bought one of those if I wanted. Huge blob of cables hanging out in the bottom of my case as a result.
Overall Review: XFX's website is super easy to use for support, which is part of the reason I bought the product.
