Summary: Board runs great - it is just when it boots up you can hear growling and popping noise coming through the speakers. I checked all the connections - something is just not grounded in the audio jacks.
Summary: I was nervous at first ordering computer parts from the web...but man, was I pleased when my stuff arrived...First off...the bios interface on this is unlike anything I had seen before. Very Slick design. There is so much you can do. It is designed with overclocking in mind and helps the user balance out speed and performance based on his / her needs. It is really good looking too... a plus, seeing as a have a transparent acrylic window on my case.
bad board, mixed feelings, returning it for the deluxe

Summary: This board looks great but it was a pain in the backside to get it running stable. Overclocking is supposed to be simple within Win 7 OS but for me this never worked and always froze my system. Anyway is is always better to manually overclock so you can increase voltages more aggressively. But even this requires a stable board and I think I got a bad one.
