Summary: This motherboard was a good buy for the money. I was able to flash its bios and use a six core I7 processor on it . It has lots of cgood o/c features and has truly sped up my gaming rigg 3 fold
Summary: It may not have all of the bells and features of its bigger brother, like USB 3.0 and SATA 6G, but for an entry into the world of i7 CPUs where you want to spend the money on hte CPU and not the motherboard, it's still a great way to start. The board support 3-way SLi from nVidia and paired with my HAF922 case, I have plenty of room for pairing this board with a seriously huge cooling CPU fan.
Summary: Unless you are starving for Nvidia SLi, you should go for this one without hesitation !! I have been using this Motherboard for my i7-920 build with Windows 7 for more than five months now with no single problem... Highly recommended ...
Summary: If you don't need SLI then this motherboard is a great option and value. The default settings are find for most users who don't plan on overclocking the cpu. This is a good motherboard for a good price - highly recommend.
Summary: I actually don't own this board. I own another ASUS board. But this is relevant. ASUS tech support is ASTOUNDING. The best I have ever used by far. They answer quickly-- I've never held for more then 3-5 minutes-- and when they do, oh boy. They hire people with real, serious tech training. They listen carefully and know problem causes by heart-- they're not using an automated troubleshooting system.
