Reported in this tread a while ago about RAM not working properly. Anyway, went to my retailer yesterday and got my board replaced. Everything is working fine now!
I had no real need for getting a new mobo but I just liked the look and features of this board so much that I couldn't hold myself back
Here's how my rig looks right now:
I'm finally really starting to be satisfied with both the components and the looks of my rig
. Be sure to let me know what you think!
As for the board, I haven't done that much testing yet, but so far the board is very promising. While doing a Heaven benchmark (everything maxed of course, at 1080p) with everything on stock my average FPS increased from 43.0 to 44.0 compared to my old motherboard (Asus P8P67), which is about 2.3%. Now, I do not find that bad at all for just a mobo upgrade. Enabling Virtu MVP boosted my FPS to 44.9, OK I guess but not that much.
The only complaint I have so far is that the AI Suite software was a pain for me to install (thermal radar wasn't working at first), I ran into problems which I think were caused by me upgrading from an older version of the AI suite for my old mobo. I had to fiddle around in the register but in the end I managed to install the software properly. Anyway, not really a big deal.
Great experience with this board overall so far!
