Summary: Arrived dead; would not post. Did some web searching and found other people as well who would only get a 0x00 post code and no actual boot. Removed everything to troubleshoot, except CPU, and still wouldn't proceed past the first post code.
Summary: I purchased this board as an upgrade to the earlier version, the DX58SO. I liked the 6 RAM slots, USB 3.0 and other advanced features. I pulled all the peripherals from the older board and would then upgrade to 24 GB of RAM to run VM's and take advantage of the 6gb SATA interface.
