Loving it so far, but there is an issue with sleep mode with p67 boards that are overclocked. I think that has to be fixed with software by Microsoft, but other than that it's fantastic. I have only tried pushing 4.5ghz so far an that took 1.35v, but I like my temps much better at 1.3v with a 4.3ghx overclock. Plus, this comp is already wayy to fast for most of my needs, the only time I stress it is when editing h.264 1080p60 footage from my panny TM700. It's nice to also be able to play Crysis 1 smoothly again. I haven't been playing with this fan control, but this motherboard was designed for optimized component cooling with a blow-down cooler, which I've had since October (I got this Noctua cooler for $35, I couldn;t say no to that. It's not the best performer but it looks great, and has Noctua's quality, warranty, and silence). The Fan on it is PWM controlled, so I'm sure the armor fan control must be doing it's thing with controlling the speed of that fan. It's not a massive overclock, so everything is running extremely cool, especially since my cpu is running at 1.6ghz most of the time.
