Summary: two different things in this case). If you want to RAID 0 a pair of SSDs, and have that performance last, you have to get the TRIM working. the RAM is causing the issue and save a boat load of time. Power and Reset buttons that are built on to the motherboard - makes testing components in your build very quick and easy.What a supprise! Install and setup a piece of cake and, board runs very well.
Summary: the board is really really cool... sli ready, overclocking both mb and mems... lots of nice features like fastboot... digital Dolby was a surprise... has some probs installing linux on crossfire/sli.... had to install linux on 1 graphics card and resit the 2 graphics card to crossfire... but it's an amazing mb...
Summary: lots of room for expansions, it only has 7 plugs for standoff so dont freak out. Only issue i had with it is that the main 24-pin power doesn't clip all the way in with so much pressure that it looks like it would just break in half. Not sure if that's a testament to the corsair PSU cable maybe. Overall would recommend it.
Summary: The motherboard seems dope so far. There are small things that I love about it. I will agree with the previous reviews that the board is a little flimsy. When I put the ram in I had to hold below the board so it didnt creek. All of the USB's and what not are beautiful. Its works great with my case.
Summary: This is a high quality mobo for the price, just dont expect to get very high overclocks, do to a poor vrm. The diagnose LED works wonders for figuring out why your pc wont start. Looks very attractive. Highly Recommended.
Summary: paired this with an i5-3570k and after 5 days of use the board failed. Amazon was stellar as always. Sent out a replacement which I received the next day. the second board has been running fine now for over 2 weeks and I ordered another for a build for a friend. 1 Month Update: both boards are performing very well. very pleased.
