Summary: I did not buy this board from Amazon, but so frustrated at the board I wanted to comment everywhere I can. This board got my attention due to the number of hot swappable SATA ports, although I don;t overclock I prefer boards that do, and the easy overclocking Genie seemed easy enough to do light overclocking. Be sure to read several forums on this board and the problems people are having. I had to RMA mine after 30 days and no longer under exchange days.
Summary: Bought one of these from Amazon as I really liked the specs and features. Tried all the usual tricks - using known good ram, known good CPU, resetting CMOS etc etc but the board never did POST. Sent it back. Received another one from Amazon today...same problem!! This time I individually tested EACH component including every memory stick, the CPU, the video card(s), even the individual power cables from the PSU on a "known good" board - guess what? They all worked fine.
