2 June 2010
Summary: Great overclockable board,took a 2.33ghz quad core to 2.8? on air with 2 9800 gt cards in sli, 5 raptors in raid 0, with 4 gig of ocz 1066, had to take everything apart and change the case dew to HEAT (this board will get hot) but you can not go wrong with this board. GREAT GAMING BOARD!
Summary: CPU INIT error on start up...just hit the reset button on back edge of board, duh. Download latest bios from asus.com web site on to a flash drive. When the bios comes up you can upgrade off the flash drive without even starting windows. Excellent planning on Asus part. A bonanza for Overclockers. FSB, RAM, CPU, voltage, or any combination of overclock settings you are brave enough to try. OC directly with bios or through the easy to use software that comes with it.
Summary: I bought this origianlly knowing it would be good from the beginning - I have been using Asus boards in computers I have been building for the last 5 years now - and they keep getting better. Quick history of me for a second. I own a small computer company hand building around 8-15 computers a month. I have tried all the brands out there - and the two I have always been proud to work with were Gigabyte , and Asus.

I soon discovered the problem ...
