Summary: If you are still shopping for this old x58 boards for some reason as I did, do not get this model. Don't get me wrong, this board is fabulous...It is very stable, has alot of good options, connectibility, and performance.
Summary: I opened the box to see the motherboard sitting on the bottom while the bubble rap was on top of it. ??? At least put the bubble wrap underneath it as well. Not like these UPS or FedEx drivers take caution when "putting" (more like throwing the package in their trucks).
