Summary: The Motherboard has excellent features set, rarely found in this form factor, and it looks pretty too!

Excerpt: Completely fantastic board. But I was 1st shipped a undesirable board. The 1st board shipped was really unstable and had issues with the BIOS, Ethernet, and memory slots. Get in touch with the 1st board a fluke. I'd give 5 stars, but the 1st board was wrought with flaws.
