Summary: 1. had stability problems despite latest bios flash. it sometimes drops connection. 2. this is the second asus board i'v had with stability problems but have kept it because i didn't want to go to the trouble of teraing down the computer again. 3 i am running win7 and planned to have dual boot with a win xp drive. the board will not recognize win xp. 4 customer support was not at all helpful.
Summary: This board hasn't been out long, but there have been at least 6 BIOS updates thus far and many driver updates for the on-board features. Unless you really want the controls for over-clocking, etc., I suggest you look elsewhere. The USB 3 function wouldn't work until the latest update to the drivers and BIOS was installed. Support is very slow and shallow - the assumption is that the customer doesn't know what he's doing.
