I've used this board for well over a year and it's been running an i7 920 v 4Ghz stock voltage the whole time. The board itself is also loaded with 2 video cards in SLI, 5 hard drives 6GB ram, and even one of the old PCI slots is in use all powered by a corsair 750 watt PSU. Everything runs great... honestly this setup is just as strong as it was a year ago. I see absolutely no reason to upgrade the mobo and CPU in the forseeable future. No games even begin to stress the CPU to its potential yet.
overall the build and quality of the motherboard is solid. Asus epu6 engine is a great little tool but I find that it doesn't set the right speeds for medium and max power savings. Why they bothered with a -50% adjustment when the most it will decrease speed is to 1425mhz is confusing. the increments don't make sense in my opinion, but still the gui is better than others i've used. Don't try to crossfire on this board unless you wanna use the 4x slot...which wouldn't make sense in the first place. The slots are way too close to allow good airflow. I would give 3.5 stars
I bought this for my first desktop. You could imagine how excited I was when receiving these stuff. Turned out DOA. Wouldn't boot up at all. Tried 1 ram, still same thing. Doesn't even beep.Had it rmaed, haven't heard anything from the deparment yet. This thing waste me a whole month. Thinking about getting another one, there're lots of reviews regarding it doesn't recognize 12gb ram and gives lot BSOD. Just check out the reviews before you pay for it. Maybe I'm just no lucky.
