Solid Board good features

I bought this as part of a OC'd bundle and I am very happy with it.

Very straight forward settings in the BIOS, the manual is clear and concise.

There's a very theatrical review on YouTube from highlighting the many positives of this board and covers more than I can talk about here.

Its connected to:
CPU:Intel I7 2700k OC'd @ 4600 MHz
CPU Cooler: Corsair Corsair A50
Memory(RAM):Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey 8G @ 1600 Mhz
Graphics: 2x 6950 CrossfireX OC'd @ 940 1350
PSU: Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000W Modular
Hard Drives: OCZ SSD, 6gb/s HDD, 3gb/s HDD
TV Tuner:Pinnacle PCI TV Tuner
Case: HAF-X

All components above are compatible with the Motherboard and run well.

The reason for the 4 Stars is the layout of the boards PCI x4 Socket at the top is restricted by the heat sink on the board a different layout would be preferable.

I do not use the software that comes with the board but is useful for updating BIOS
