Summary: I've always had good luck with Gigabyte boards, and this is an extremely well-designed one. All of the elements just seem fit without much finagling or forcing. I had a large high-end CPU cooler which upon eyeballing the uninstalled parts looked like it might render one of the RAM slots useless... but in fact it had just enough space all around.
Summary: Got this for my accounting, I went from a Q6600 Socket 775 to a i7 930, BIG difference in speed. I did notice the motherboard is fussy about the memory you install I checked the Gigabyte web site and am using Corsair, work well for me!
