Summary: for every one that is haveing the BSOD issue, you need to do this. goto asus website, go to the drivers section for this board and download the new lan driver, you need this one. Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Driver V126.96.36.1993 for 32/64bit Windows XP & Windows
Cons: not very meany games are supported for the hyrologix chip set. the game i play is not supported, and thus can not use 2 vids. i get a screen over lay flicker with two vids enabled.

Cons: Untill I installed the sound drivers something is wrong I have a 5.1 sound system all the speakers work fine except the back right one.I pluged it in the front port and it works fine so it's not the speaker it the stupid black headphone jack is only broadcasting on one side.
Summary: Well took this board out of the package and it looked like it was open. The heatsink was hanging off the Lucid and SB chip. I turned the board over and theres the problem 6 screws missing. Call Asus and they told me to RMA the board with Amazon.
Cons: IT WAS CRASHING NON STOP....Come to find out (not with any help from ASUS support) there is a INTEL gigabyte network adapter on the MB. It was the problem, and Some independent guy had to create a stable driver for the LAN. ASUS still has on their web page the driver that is causing the crashes.
Excerpt: В принципе - НЕ доволен. Ужасный перегрев при небольших нагрузках - это никуда не годится. :( Зато на их фирменном диске сразу идет ролик о "необыкновенно эффективной" системе охлаждения заместо стандартных радиаторов на МВ.
Pros: Хороший набор для оверклокинга. Красиво, стильно, гибрид Nvidia & AMD. ROG.
Cons: Полунедотоп - это не топовое решение. :(
; Ужасно реализовано охлаждение северного моста, легко взлетает 80+ при работе 1х580GTX 3Gb и 2х6850HD 4Gb(топовые решения прошлого месяца).
; Плохая поддержка игр. В библиотеке нету новых игрушек, как у СЛИ или Кросфайр.
; нельзя выбрать отдельно SATA 1,2...
