Reviews

My first thing to say about this is, it looks badass. GB did a very nice job making sure all the ports were visible and accessible, installation of the IO shield was a breeze, and connecting the front panel IO could not have been easier. This is super easy to work with, comes loaded with features, and looks awesome.

The BIOS is also great! It supports Intel XMP and is easy to navigate, but also offers an "expert" mode if you get tired of the BIOS for 5yos.

I've docked a star because on a gaming mobo of this price, I would have expected to see support for 4-way both CF and SLI. Nope! Only supports 2-way SLI and 3-way CF. Oh well, guess upgrade potential's just a tad limited...but in all fairness, >3 SLI or CF configs are downright unreasonable for the scaling you get.
