Pros: NF200 (x16/x16), VRM management, ASUS, quality, BIOS update - Ivy

Cons: P67 chipset so no SRT or Virtu like newer boards

I got a deal on this last year and considering the price I got it then and the price it is still today, I win..
Updated the BIOS and this thing runs so smooth I can't wee myself getting rid of it not even for a Z77 mobo, not right now.
The BIOS in this board is wicked and has so many controls that you can get lost.
Overclocking is wicked and I boot @ 4.8GHz ON AUTO before I tweaked it out, I was just testing.
Massive cooling with fully extended heat pipes and massive mosfets, do not worry about clearing for most CPU coolers.
Diagnostic card that I leave in because of the tricky case I have and the front USB 3.0 header, my issue not the boards (I think)..
Runs flawlessly and cool, AI Suite also has monitoring tools but I do not use that service.
Thinking of trying my IB in this unit..
