Pros: Easy to overclock with most settings on auto (latest bios) Vdroop can be massaged via bios a bit without a risky pencil mod.
Cons: Cant use TRI sli with dual slot cards and sound card. Price isnt cheap if you don't overclock OR use at least two video cards.
I recently upgraded from the 775 platform and have been bewildered with excitement at the ease of overclocking with this board. It has so many tweaks you can use to get temps and power usage down whilst maintaining a steady OC. I didn't have the issues some have had hence the bias opinion. THis SB motherboard was well worth the upgrade. THe new chips dont hurt either.
