Summary: I received this motherboard, hooked everything up and found out that there was one dead memory module on the motherboard. Gave Amazon a call, they asked me what's wrong and immediately send out a replacement, thanks Amazon! They even set up a prepaid pick up with UPS to pick up the product at my house, how helpful of them! A+ for customer service. Though I was curious about them sending me an email about not receiving the returned product.
Summary: This board is working great. Comes with good S/W (two CDs). Auto updates for BIOS. Good instructions. Has all the interface/connectors I wanted. Running with 6 DDR modules for 12 Gig. Hasn't crashed yet (Had it for 1.5 years now, most reliable of the two dozen Computers I've owned).
Summary: Overall, I give this product above average. There are few things that needs to better, such as: 1. Yje IOH/northbrige chipset get hot. The stock heatshink is inadequate. Solution; aftermarket like thermalright HR 05/IFX did a great job in bring it down to 42 C. 2.The layout for the two motherboard fan connector were in poor location. If you are using Dual slot video card like Nvidia gtx 280 or ATI 4870x2, this connector are impossible to connect.
Summary: I was looking for a motherboard under $[...] to use with my new Core I7 920 CPU. I read a review [...] that gave me the answer I was looking for. They gave it a great review. I was able to purchase this board for [...] because I got a [...] rebate for using my Amazon.com credit card on my very first purchase. That made this deal even sweeter. Great board, with a great price!!!! What more can you ask for? Thanks Amazon.com.
