The NewEgg reviews on ASUS Maximus IV Extreme's ain't exactly glowing, either.
Read 'em here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131700
Probably due to most people not knowing how to operate such an advanced motherboard.
When I consider buying something using the Egg's customer ratings I go by the total of both 4 and 5 egg ratings. If they don't add up to at least 76% then I won't even consider buying it. If I'm still interested in 75% and below I go to the bother of reading all of the reviews to see what the problems may be and try to figure out if it's because of user error or a genuine flaw in the merchandise. It's worked for me so far. I guess it's something like trying to read a horse racing form. Anything you buy is absolutely a gamble. You just have to figure the odds of making a good buy from some strangers ratings.

I'll dig out my motherboard manual if you really want
Couldn't find it in my Cell menu Oh well, my voltages tend to read out in the middle of the ranges for the allowable range specified by Intel so I'll have to live with it.
