Great board for any use, be ready for a longer post though

Summary: I purchased this board so I could alienate myself from Dell. It works great but does run a tad warm on the North/South Bridge. Reapplying thermal paste to them cleared that problem, however, it was difficult to re-seat. Make sure if you get it from a vendor or eBay buyer to ask if it comes with everything in the picture. Some vendors are overseas and will not list everything or will use the generic description from the ROG website.
Summary: I bought this wanting the best and from a user it's great. From a builder, big. You need a large case. I had to send back my Armor case and get the large Cooler Master to house it. But this bad boy has every option you could want. Plenty of fan connections, comes with a good sound card, a LCD remote display for info, too many to list.
Summary: Very good for beginer Over clock the computer. Now, I set my cpu voltage to 1.2v, YEAH, JUST 1.2V, my cpu frequnecy is reach 4.11ghz now. And I have been using for play the games, and 3d mark vantage, and there is no crash, pretty good!
Summary: First of all, let me start by saying this mobo is great, I was able to OC an i7 950, which is supposed to be locked, well, not with this MOBO, by playing with the voltage I've been able to OC my CPU, no problem. Now, about he design flaws: very tight, not much space which limits how much freedom you have to install components, one being a decent sound card, the Intel Chip heat sink gets in the way of full size sound cards, so you are forced to keep the PCe sound card...
Summary: This is a very well constructed motherboard. Documentation in my opinion could have been a little better, and I had to go online to look for reviews with photos to satisfy some of my questions. Overall, it's a good board for gamers and overclockers. Layout is clean, but I would recommend this for a case with a removable motherboard tray, unless you have exceptionally long and thin fingers -- unlike me.
Summary: Okay i bought the package deal with this awesome Motherboard, Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB 3 x 2 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Core i7 Memory Kit, and Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz 8M L3 Cache 4.8GT/sec QPI Hyper-Threading Turbo Boost LGA1366 Processor. Question is that the CPU with the alignment brackets it seems it doesn't fit well did anyone else have this problem, i double and triple checked if i had the right or wrong cpu to MB.
Excerpt: Ich bin mal so unverschämt und behaupte dass es zurzeit noch das Beste Sockel 1366 Mainboard von Asus ist. (Abgesehen von der P6T WS/ Supercomputer Reihe und dem noch nicht erschienenen Rampage 3 Extreme) Auf der einen Seite war das Board so wuchtig wie ein Hummer H1 und auf der anderen Seite habe ich es in den Händen gehalten wie ein Chirurg ein Herz wie bei einer Organ Transplantation.
