I have had this board as part of my build now for over a year and am impressed with it. Other than the FF error that requires a bios reset and boot with minimal equipment to fix it has not given me any major issues. The bios give great access to the systems settings and allows for much control on OC. I have this in SLI and have not had any issues with this and it runs amazing.
I love this thing, even the box it came in impressed me. I've used ASUS boards up till now but nothing really did it for me this time so I though I would try this unit. I'm very happy with the decision and am now an XFX guy. The thing looks great, and the optional FSB fan is quiet and effective. I've upgraded the BIOS since and it went flawlessly. I'm only running one 8800GTX at the moment though so I'm not using any of the SLi capabilities. I'm using 8GB of OCZ Reaper ram and again, no issue at all. The included SATA cables are designed well and the front facing SATA connectors are very useful if you plan to hide your cables.
Good motherboard overall but its needs the motherboard chipset fan moved as video card can stop fan.Usb ports are well placed but it could use more onboard usb for attaching to computer case.This motherboard is great as you don't have to get ddr3 ram and yet has most of DDR3 features.
Overall I am pretty happy with my purchase. I had some issues at first running the Crucial Ballistix Tracer 8500 DDR2 mem stix I got since the default voltage set on the board was too low for them (1.8v) and it wouldn't POST. To correct it I had to connect one stick at a time and try restarting until it posted. Then I was able to change voltages in the bios to the recommended 2.2 for this memory.
I loved this motherboard dearly until i tried using 4 sticks of ram. That didnt work, got the board RMA'd new one didnt even boot if i used the second RAM slots! Not veryimpressed with this Mobo.
