Pros: New BIOS, Sata III, z68 chipset, great SSD support, Plenty of Sata prots, SLI/Xfire support. PCI/USB 3.0
Cons: no cons at all.
I used this board to upgrade to an i5 2500k at the suggestion of a few OCN.net members. Very glad I did. This board has been great! I was slightly worried about the new bios, and it took some gettings used to. There are tons of feature's in the BIOS, more than I know what to do with! So far with the help of this motherboard I was able to get a total clock of 4.7Ghz 24/7 stable with ease! One of the best mobo's I have worked with, it was even kind enough to auto set the proper RAM freq,voltage and timings! I would recomend this board to anyone looking for a high end 1155 mobo that dose not want to break the bank best part is it's ready for IB!
