Summary: The construction and speed is worthy of the name "Gamers". My only tiny issue is it tops out at 24 gigs of RAM. I got a super deal on a 1366 hexcore chip so this board seemed the best bet. I process and render lots of video and it works great. Maybe down the road I will tinker with overclocking but at this state its a perfect buy to performance ratio.
Summary: Starting using become some problme blue screen in windows 7 damm!! well I have to set some options in the motherboard about standard option talking abour overclocking and stuff like that, after thar star works fine :d
Summary: If you know enought about Computers, and looking to Overclock and tweak, this is hte board for you. Not the easiest thing to work with, but will give the best performance if you know what your doing.
Summary: Overall, a nice motherboard. Tons of features for overclocking. Using the ASUS Turbo feature, one-click overclocking my i7 950 from 3.06 GHz to 3.3 GHz. Installation was easy - POSTed first time and haven't had any problems. The Marvell 6Gb/sec controller is kind of crappy. If you want to RAID it, my understanding is the speeds are very slow - better off using the Intel RAID controller. Bottom line, the SATA 6G feature is overated and useless on this board.
Summary: For a long time I figured I'd buy a cheaper Gigabyte motherboard but in the end this just seemed like too good of a package to pass up. Here's the build I put together (my first solo build): Asus Rampage III formula Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600mhz Intel 950 I7 Cooler Master 690 II Advanced Cooler Master 212 CPU Cooler Crucial C300 128GB hard drive Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000 I haven't picked up a video card yet as I'm waiting to see how the AMD 6950/6970 compare to...
