Summary: The cooling system is much better than any other 780i board on the market. It's a clean designed board. And, neat board with a good Raid system and good back connectors. This is the only 780i board that has solid caps, other than the A brand boards. however, their boards run horribly hot. Also, the board has lots of features and a X-FI sound card. but, the stock BIOS is a kind of weird and unstable. flashed to the latest version and everything work perfect!!
