overall im disappointed with it. its looks pretty and it was well priced, but thats about as far as it goes.

poor fsb overclocker (my old one topped out at 240mhz, and the RMA replacement will struggle to do 225mhz), bios was full of bugs, and the tech support is a pain in the arse to work with.
Having said that they are slowly working the kinks out of the bios, but its been 18 months since my board was released. Hell, its even been replaced by the A9DA series and they still haven't got this one right yet...

agreed for the most part. I've sent tech support an email and they said they were gonna release a new bios to support the thubans(for both ddr2 and ddr3 versions of the mobo) but that has yet to show up.
as well the reason it topped out at 240 is because the NB clock for whatever reason can't go higher then 2400 even with NB volts all the way up to 1.5 and I have even tried putting the NB multy down to 9 to go higher then 240 but it shows its at 9 in the bios but cpuz still says its at 10. So I hope they come out with a new bios soon that both supports the 6 cores and fixes all the bugs...but I guess we shall see.

well actually, i can change my nb multi (this was only recently fixed), but that doesnt solve the problem. on both my original board and my current board, once i go over 240, i get all kinds of artifacts on the screen. Except my current board will randomly crash once i go over 225. Im using the IGP atm, so i hope this will go away once i go discrete. Im not getting my hopes up though :/

and the latest bios for the 3.0s has support for thubans ... supposedly

well i have mixed fellings with this board, my old gigabyte reach 3.6ghz /2600 mhz nB stable at 1.45v.. more than that and bsod... and with this i was able to reach 3.8ghz stable, but keeping my nb at stock, cuz i got bsod if i set it higher.. now with tons of hours i was able to reach 3.8ghz stable and NB at 2400mhz BUT with my vcore at 1.55v which is to high...

i was not able to unlocks my 4th core with this board which is sad, and my cpu was unlocked with another board.. i hope they release a new bios soon.. i wan the 4th core so bad..

right, they've fixed the HT multi issue i was on about, but its been limited to a maximum of 10x, even when the nb multi is raised. Core unlocking is now fully functional and supported again.

They've also fixed a load of typos and other annoying things like the CAS timings setting 2 values below what youve actually picked.

Yukss/NeverEnding, with this release ive just done an hour of prime with the NB at 2.5ghz (210x12). Wont do 2.6 though

no word on the "official" bios update, so heres the one they gave me (once again, this is for the 3 series only):

Do the bios' for the 3.0 version work with the none-3.0 version?
I only have the ddr2 version.
