Summary: Works perfectly in my custom storage array. Got the ASUS because I found out the hard way that Gigabyte motherboards don't wait for RAID cards to start up properly, which buggers up the OS installation sequence. I needed something that would fit my NOFAN CPU heatsink, with a PCIe slot far enough away from the CPU. Make sure you buy a board with B3 stepping, otherwise your on-board SATA3 ports will be unreliable.
Summary: I see pa pattern emerging in my buying experience. ASSUS products appear to be getting excellent ratings by me. I really think they are doing something different from the competitors in the manufacturing and quality assurance.
Summary: I had my doubts about buying refurbished but it was worth the gamble. This motherboard has worked brilliantly and I haven't had a single issue with it so far. Anyone tryin to save some money and want a solid product I would get this.
Summary: Installation was a breeze. I was really amazed when it booted up on my first start without any problems. Its been awhile and it is still functioning to its potential.... I haven't had to do anything to it yet. I had forgotten about writing a review for this motherboard, time just slipped by. Out of sight out of mind. Great board.
Summary: Had no problems installing. The new BIOS is cool. The software that came with the board is awesome, although the blu-tooth has never quite worked. The ram is a tight fit if you buy a stock cooler and your ram has heat sinks, but we made ours fit somehow. I don't control my fans with the mobo, just let em' run, but only half of the power slots on the mobo can be specially controled, so if you are into fan controling, just buy a controller, don't use the mobo. btw..
Summary: I love this motherboard the speed is crazy. i installed a Intel i5 Coree with this and putting it all together was a breeze. The 5.0GPS SATA Ports were great to use for my HDD and Bluray drive plus the addition of the support for USB 3.0 so moving to the next level in that regard has been good only downside is that alot of devices dont have USB 3.0 support yet like printers but I have been able to find 3.0 support external HDD this will be great when i setup my own...
Summary: Good motherboard for sli and overclocking. I've got my 2500k @ 4.5ghz. the bios that come with it is very nice and sleek. The first one I received though had bent socket pins but don't let this be discouraging I sent it back and received a new one in 2 days. Overall a really good boards for the price and a must buy for someone building a pc around the p67 chipset.
First custom build and fired right up first time...

Summary: I am very pleased with this. This was my first custom computer build and was happy when I seen the power come on lol. I love the built in Blue-tooth. I haven't tried messin with the OC yet, but that time is coming very soon. Amazon would normally get my stuff to me faster, but still delivered quickly considering I ordered everything on Christmas day. I give credit to Newegg in helping me make the decision to pair this MOBO with the Intel I7 2600k.
