Summary: The product seem to arrive in good conditon and this is the only good thing. The bad thing is I payed super shipping for this item to arrive in 2-4 days and it was a gift. To find out they kept extending the delivery date and I payed super high shipping.

Summary: Read so many great reviews and saw so many benchmarks on this board. I still recommend asus any day and will always stick with them. Just hoping this is one of those once in a lifetime things and everything will get resolved soon.
Pros: Fast and bios is great. Even though i could only get certain things to work correctly i really liked this board. This board has been deactivated by now though so i hope i can get a replacement newer version by this weekend. Newegg is amazing and have never had any problems from this company. Fast...
Cons: Would only recognize my memory in single channel or it would crash. could only use the b1 and b2 slots or it wouldn't post even with one stick. Tried different brands and everything but no luck. Could not overclock without getting the blue screen. great ratings in the windows score except for the...
Summary: I sent most of the items back and got refunded.. I'm tired of buying NEW items that are bad and having to dismantle the setup and wait for new parts.. sigh.. I doubt that I will ever build a new computer again.
Pros: I've been into electronics since 1968 and into computer builds since 1993.. I was really looking forward to this setup with Liquid cooling, but wasn't meant to be.
Cons: After installing Win7 the Asus software wouldn 't even install.. After narrowing down the the problem I d/led a free temp. program and found out the main CPU sensor was bad which caused the problem with NOT being able to O/C and not allowing the Asus software to install as well.
Summary: I've been into electronics since 1968, and building my own PCs since 1993.. I hate to put a system together, spend $1000 plus and get junk to have to return, then wait for RMA process.. I think I'll send everything back and buy a laptop... In case it's bad I won't have to tear everything apart...LOL
Pros: After setting system up. I went into the Bios to setup the O/C for my 2500k and G-Skill 8G 2133 memory. I hit the XMP option and the memory showed up and the CPU was suppose to be 4G. After rebooting the system then rebooted and loaded up a lower setting keeping the CPU at only 3.3G stock.
Cons: After I setup Win7 64b Ult. and tried to install Asus AiSuite software the software would not install because of a bad thermal sensor I found out later. I d/led a free CPU temp. tester and it showed the 4 processors were at 28C-31C roughly, but one sensor called CPU was showing a Minus -130C..
