The 3, yes that’s right 3, PCI-E x16 slots will support 2 GPU cards at x16 and a physics card at x8 speeds.

There is one ATA133 header and 6 SATAII headers for drive connectivity. Four back panel and 6 headers give you up to 10 USB 2.0 ports and there are up to 2 FireWire ports (1 back panel and 1 header). Two gigabit LAN connectors provide maximum network access.

Mediocre MOBO

Pros: Booted up flawlessly. Had no problems with old bios and had no problems flashing it to the new bios. Very nice overclocking capabilities. Very good motherboard layout.

Cons: The northbridge runs very hot. Make sure your case has good cooling. It's very picky on the ram you use.

Other Thoughts: Becarefull of the ram you use. The ASUS technical support, well I meant "lack of technical support" is fantastic. Both memory configurators state I can use Crucial Ballistix tracer 1066mhz ram and you can but it will only run at default 800 mhz. I have tried to set the memory to run at 1066 but the PC will not boot and when it does boot it freezes up. So just becarefull of the ram you use.

Unlucky?

Pros: 32x SLI, PCI-E Sound Card, Room for large aftermarket heatsink...

Cons: Not many cons, but major ones. This board destroys memory! I don't want to scare anyone, it's unlikely that all of these boards do this, but mine does. I've gone through 3 brands and 6gigs of memory trying to get my system stable. I'm not sure what the actual issue is, but after about 2 weeks running this board non-stop, memory errors start to appear. This turns into BSODs and random restarts. Memtest86 shows 935 errors on my Crucial memory, 56 errors on my Corsair, and 12 on my OCZ each of the brands running for less time than the previous which implies the board destroys memory over time.

Other Thoughts: I am a system builder, I know boards, I know memory. I've done as much troubleshooting as I'm willing to do because each time it becomes more costly. Unfortunately there are no refunds for mobos so I will eat the cost and go with a different brand. Sorry Asus, your memory issues recently are unacceptable. I will not buy Asus as a default brand any longer.

5/ 5

Pros: Excellent mobo! I just installed Ubuntu 7.10 64bit, and everything works great! I had another brand motherboard which has JMicron SATA drivers (not supported in Ubuntu). I'm sure an IDE HDD would work, but I have all SATAs. ASUS to the rescue. The nVidia nForce 680i chipset works great for Linux installations. Rock on ASUS!!

Cons: There is a sticker warning about RAM compatibility on the box, but the Newegg Memory Configurator assured me that my OCZ Platinum DDR2 sticks would work. They do!
