Summary: The first motherboard they sent me was broken on arrival, however it took them two days to get me a new one. After that (I had to disassemble and reassemble my entire PC and that sucked haha) the product worked great, I've had no more problems, it's easy to install, clear labeling on the motherboard so it's easy to know where to put everything. The part that holds the CPU seems extremely secure.
Summary: I purchase this systemboard for a build I've named "The Beast." Let me tell you this board is nothing less that stellar with all the options and ease of overclocking. Pro: Lots of features and scalability. Supports the latest socket 2011 Intel chips 4820, 4930, and 4960. Con: Make sure to upgrade the UEFI bios to the latest version. My "The Beast," PC specs Intel i7 (4930) running at 4.4Ghz comfortably I might add.

Summary: Had to replace the first one that I bought as it did not function properly and was tough to diagnose as a problem when building a computer from scratch. The second replacement motherboard (same identical make/model/manufacturer) worked as expected.
Summary: I was hesitant to get this board because I hadn't heard of it before. I'm very glad I gave it a shot, as it has been great. The ability for 3-way SLI is great although I haven't needed to add even 1 extra card yet because the EVGA GTX 670 i have powers through any game I've thrown at it so far.
Summary: EDIT: Updates are at the bottom of the review! Hey All, So I have just finished up building a new desktop PC and this is the second motherboard I went with and I have to say while I am overall happy (note the 4 stars) I am a bit disappointed as well. I want to start out with what to be aware of: 1) This board is not capable of running TRI-SLI because of component clearance issues with the last PCIe slot.
Summary: I got this along with a 3930k, and waited a few weeks to test stability and whatnot before posting a review. I got it for the right proce, and so far I'm happy with it. It's my first non-budget-but-still-budgeted board, and I say that because I'm used to being stuck with AMD's platforms, but couldn't justify double the price just for brands with a couple extra features.
Summary: GREAT MOTHERBOARD, GREAT PACKAGE, THIS IN THE ONLY X79 MOTHERBOARD IN THE WORLD THAT HAVE`S 8 MEMORY BANKS AND 2 PCI CONVENCIONAL SLOTS, I ALLWAYS BUY ASUS BUT ASUS DONT HAVE THIS SPECIFICACIONS, BUT THIS IS AN GOOD BOARD AND GREAT PRICE, GOOD PCI-E CREATIVE SOUND CARD WITH AN EXTRA GIGABIT LAN.
Summary: I have had no issues with any DOA boards and have used this board in most of my LGA 2011 custom builds these last few months. It's my favorite sub $300 board as far as features vs price (don't go with the Extreme4 version which is pretty barebones in terms of features). Don't treat this as an economy/budget build component either.
