Summary: Unless you are one of the lucky few, the MB will probably create extensive frustration. When it works, it is the fastest MB I've ever seen. It is picky about what is used with it; of 7 PSUs, only 2 worked with it, older DDR3 memory isn't liked either.
Summary: Obviously the other two reviews are from inexperienced builders. This is a very fast, powerful motherboard, when it is equipped with the right cpu, video card, memory, cooling, and high cache HDD,SSD drives. Using Windows7, it will boot to desktop within 15-20 seconds, and shutdown within 10.
