Easy BIOS menus and more failsafes than a spaceshuttle, highy recommended.

Summary: This was a case of get a Motherboard to fit the CPU (as I already had 2 x E5504's), I also had a requirement for multiple PCIe x8 slots so this guy was the pick. On first boot I had a USB stick with the firmware update on it - Hit F6, chose UFI and it booted, auto-detected the USB and the firmware update on it and simple asked "Would you like to update the firmware [y/n]?" - I hit the Y key and it did it's thing; that easy.
