Experience: 3 Months

Pros

One of maybe 4 AMD motherboards that are able to run SLI.
Cons
It's dead already.
Summary
It's unfortunate that Asus and Gigabyte don't make more AMD cards that can run SLI. Asus has a couple, but they're quite old. Running this with Phenom II X6 1055T, GTX 460, Silverstone 1000W, 8gigs of DDR3 G. Skills Ripjaws. Stock everything, not overclocked then just died.

Experience: 7 Days

Pros

Tri-SLI support
on board HDMI
looks like an elaborate setup to cool the board
Cons
Sata ports are placed on the edge... kindof hard to get at.
only 4 USB ports on the back... Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, external drive... and you're out (although 4 USB headers on the board)
Floppy connector?? why :(
No sata 3 support
Summary
No issues with this board... seems to be chuggin along just fine. Although I did notice in the manual that it said there is a 15GB RAM limit. On board HDMI could come in handy in the future.
