Summary: Went through two of these MOBs, each of them fried out as soon as power was supplied to the board. Zotac replaced the first board but when called for the second they couldn't find a record for the replacement so refused to provide service. Will avoid their products at all costs now. Really disappointing.
Summary: I purchased this board since my old Gigabyte H55n board was malfunctioning and is now discontinued. Compared to the old board, the overclocking capabilities is atrocious. Since with the new Sandy Bridge CPUs, you can count out any firmware updates to this board. HOWEVER, this board works, and I've had no problems with it thus far. I has enabled a decent OC on my i7 875K around 3.2Ghz vs. the initial 2.93Ghz. It is feature packed with a ton of sata ports.
Zotech thinking ahead, but falls slightly short in some areas - keep it up.

Summary: brand new ... I broke the connecter on one of the antenna to the wi-fi card. too damn small for failing eye sight. other than that, good mobo ... more than enough SATA ports, too many USB2.0 ports, not enough USB3.0 ports - make all the USB ports v3.0 backwards compatible. get rid of the PS2 port and add three more USB ports in that area. I order a 10-port USB2.0 hub for the number of items that are USB oriented, along with a 4-port USB3.0 hub.
