Ya ive heard their motherboards started to suck after the p55 and x58 boards. But it was either take a z68 or a $100 EVGA credit for a board i paid over $250 for new.

$100 EVGA Store credit doesn't mean you can buy other brand products with it.... Store Credit means you have $100 to spend with EVGA on evga.com

Ive got my tracking numbers today, CPU will be here on Thursday (paid for 3 day shipping), and board next Tuesday, Though i am abit worried after reading 25 some odd 1/5 egg reviews and only 40 5 eggs. It seems not many PSU's will work with this board, i hope my 750tx will work.
