Summary: I did order from somewhere other than Newegg, I'll admit it, to avoid paying tax. So it's possible that the other vendor which-shall-not-be-named just has a bad batch or likes to play with magnets near their stock and that Newegg's are fine.
Pros: Simple enough design with good featureset - z68 is probably worth the investment if you're new to Sandy Bridge.
Cons: Mine arrived with a serious issue with the RAM slots. Only the top 2 would work, which meant that dual-channel was out. Tried 2 different kinds of RAM and every possible configuration (2 top, 2 bottom, 1 top 1 bottom, etc) with 4 different sticks and motherboard just gave me this awful, awful bee...
Pros: *Great Price *Easy To Install *Lots of software!
Cons: *I have a bad Slot #2 Memory Slot (Hoping Newegg or Manufacturer will send me a new one and i can send this back one I get the replacement!) *Going to lose money from my business if Im out of a computer.
