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: 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: Fantastic looking motherboard with everything you need in spades. Problem: The BIOS chip included with this motherboard is outdated and will not work with an Intel i7-3820 chip. The motherboard will show error AF. Good luck solving this problem via google!
