Pros: High HTT (300+),3 x16 pcie slots, ProbeIT,Rog connet,Nice look,

Cons: Sata ports under Gpu,Vdroop at 50% LLC

Just a nice board. Works fine with my PII x4 965 @4.1 1.38V. Even at 1.65V VRM was doing it's job fine(no vdroop at 100% LLC).Allows crazy HTT (worked fine at 333mhz but i don't know what's the limit on this board).
Recommended for Phenom II x6(especially for locked multi ones) and Vishera (works fine on this board).
Only thing that I don't like is the fact that my sata ports are under my gpu (Hd6990) and every time when i reinstall my gpu my sata cables come off the slots mad.gif .

lol. my sabertooth has the same problem with the gpu and sata ports. its pretty much the only thing i wish was different but besides that, asus. besides that, asus is awesome. sounds like a nice board
i had that issue too but just get sata cable's with metal clips and it goes away!
