Summary: I teamed this board with an i3 530, Corsair ddr3 memory and an antec 310 case. Everything fits and works perfectly. Had to make some minor mods to the internals of the case to have everything fit properly but it worked out better than expected and really lovin the small form factor. Performance wise the board is a champ. The bundled software is abit buggy but I don't use it much. Updated the firmware with ease with the provided utility.
Summary: Using this motherboard as an open "caseless" pc. Works well with core i7 875k (using hyper tx 3 heat sink; there isn't a lot of room on the board and the h50 liquid cooler wouldn't fit), XFX 5770 in the only PCI-e x16 slot, 8gb Patriot Sector 5 G series filling the two RAM slots, Cooler Master 700w mod ps, and Win7 x64 Ultimate on Intel 80gb ssd. Tested the USB 3.0 with a Diablotek dock. Average is about 4-5 times faster than USB 2.0.
