Experience: 1 Years
Easy installation, good cooling capabilities, nice design and SLI 780i is great
FF error issues if you play to much with board setup, locations of some of the audio connectors and IDE connectors
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.

Experience: 90 Days

Does what it should, good size, looks great
had an issue where hitting the reset button while videocard was failing would require me to reset the CMOS before it would boot properly
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.

Experience: 45 Days
Good layout and Reliable. No crashes or problems.
Runs a bit hot
Memory controllers dont accept 4 sticks ram???
Great motherboard on thw whole.

My main concern is how hot the northbridge gets. After it's been on for about 30 seconds, the NB gets to about 55'C on idle sitting in BIOS, and that is with the "optional fan". XFX says the fan is optional but I'm too scared to remove it and see how hot the NB gets with just the heatsink. Also the fan is a bit loud.

Good overall layout,not bad amount of sata plugs and usbslots.
needs better motherboard cooling or setup diff so more cooling was available.Onboard cooling fan in a bad spot.
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.

-Lots of nice features
-Runs very stable
-XFX support site (Hard to find different bios versions)
-Default Voltage for memory was set too low by default (This caused C1 post errors)
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.

Since then it has been running amazingly stable with my two sticks of ram. I got 2 8800GT cards and I am running SLI. I am really amazed at the FPS I get on games. Good board overall, a little twitchy at first with my memory but it is now very stable. If you want a 780i board, the XFX or EVGA are good options. If you ask me now, I would probably lean more towards the EVGA since they have fantastic user forums and a better support website.

- Tons of features
- Comes with tons of goodies
- Good Overclocking features
- 3 way sli
- 780i
- Good support, web ticket system easy to use.
- LED readout with error messages for overclocking
- Nice and thick instruction manual
- Northbridge fan is loud
- Northbridge with fan on runs really hot, 55-56'C at idle
- No metal solid-state capacitors like most other mobo's
- Onboard optical SPDIF sound is hard to get to work with 5.1 surround.
This motherboard is the best one I've ever owned. XFX offers good support on their website with easy to use ticket support.

My main concern is how hot the northbridge gets. After it's been on for about 30 seconds, the NB gets to about 55'C on idle sitting in BIOS, and that is with the "optional fan". XFX says the fan is optional but I'm too scared to remove it and see how hot the NB gets with just the heatsink. Also the fan is a bit loud.

Other than that, everything is good. It comes with all sorts of goodies including the 2x sli and 3x sli bridges. Everything right down to the packaging was impressive and I was happy with all of the stuff that came in the box. It even came with a "Do not disturb" door card that can be hung from door handles. On the back of it is the Mobo s/n and service info for quick and easy access. I will update and add more once I play around with the mobo.

I was upgrading from the Gigabyte 965P-DS3, this board is way nicer.

Everything Overclocking, over-volting, performance, looks, quality, ease of use, stability, feature, everything!
None worth every penny! (slightly noisy NB fan)
This mobo is BY FAR! the best one I've ever had, it's a dream!
It took my E4400 to 3620Mhz with ease (on liquid) & I'm gonna try to push it even further a 1620Mhz OC with just FSB, nothing else is just Amazing!

The North bridge's little fan on it is an annoying bugger, but easily fixable, chuck it for a 120mm silent fan and U're set.

This thing is just absolutely the BUSINESS!!!

If U're an extremist or want the best mobo with the best Modder friendly warranty, Look no further than this baby, mam oh man! it was worth the wait (and soon 790 with ddr3 is coming as well for a double whammy!)

Did I mention it overclocks like a Demon?! >:]
