Summary: So, foolishly I figured a better power running board would in theory help me to increase my OC substantially on my 2600K... well it didn't. But! It is rock solid at 4.5GHZ and this board is feature-rich! Have no need or desire to upgrade to Haswell, or Ivy at the moment, but if the time comes, Ivy is plug-n-play in this late to the game board.
Summary: This is an excellent motherboard. Fast with numerous options. I would give it five stars but it will not boot with Corsair 8 Gig Vengeance memory modules. Worked with tech support but they never helped resolve the problem. Works fine with four 4gig modules for a total of 16 gig. Bios options are may and boot is quick. Works great with both major OSs without edits.
Great board, but watch out for power supply compatibility

Summary: I'm running a Hackintosh build with this board, and it overall works fantastic. There are a few things that you should be aware of about this board, though, both in general and Hackintosh specific. One of the most important things to know, both for Windows and Mac, is that this board is picky about what power supply it's paired with due to its "all digital" power management.
Summary: dual booting windows 8 and mac mountain lion works great for both. I had a little trouble with the board keeping the correct time replaced the cmos battery and reinstalled the bios and no problem after that.
Summary: This works in my Hackintosh pro but there have been two problems that I am not getting any help with. First, the USB 3 front socket is missing pin number 10. Second, the lower Thunderbolt port is defective and I am not able to plug a Thunderbolt cable into the port. Other than those two problems and the lack of support the thing is great. Update!
Summary: a good board,easy to configure,just loaded fail-safe optimised settings and was up and running. would have liked to see more usb3 ports to the rear or a rear fitting back plate to facilitate the use of the usb3 headers found on this board.ended up buying two usb3 back plates from amazon only to have them fail within days of fitting.
