i nearly bought the pre overclocked bundle but instead i bought this and was absolutely gobsmacked with this board overclocking could not be easier using the software that comes with the board just overclocked to 4.5ghz @ 2.9volts and did not go over 53c core temp while playing bfbc2 and that was my second attempt at overclock, the first was straight to 4ghz.just read the reviews on this board you will be surprised at what this baby can do

Very Good

Nice and easy to install, board connections are in perfect locations and not had any issues with it in setting up and overclocking.

really good

The motherboard is really good , easy to tweak, i build this with a intel i7 sandybridge, in a corsair 650 case, and water cooled with an h50, all work super fast , i am really happy of this upgrade,bit high prize but there is a reason for it.

Bought to go along with my i7 2600k, runs great, very easy to use bio's for simple 'click-overclocking'. If buying this motherboard i recommend you buy 4/8GB RAM sticks as there are only 4 slots but other than that no complaints!

4 stars only because it was 3 days late due to OCuk being out of stock and not informing me!

Didn't no what to exspect after always going for the flag ship motherboards but this think is flying, just upgraded from a Gigabyte UD5 Extreme x58.. I'm running a 2600k @4.6Ghz with 16Gig of GSkill ram with no problems, also taken my H50 off my i7 920 and the temps are much lower around 30 at idle and 50 under load very happy. The bios is very easy to use just 2 clicks with the mouse and you can auto overclock to 4.8Ghz stable :)
