FEATURES IN WORDS

Massive heatsinks
All solid Jap caps
Power/Reset/Clr CMOS buttons available - large, well positioned with LED
Incredibly well featured - 8 SATA, IDE, FDC, infra-red onboard
Onboard Debug LED
7 slots! Supports SLI/Crossfire at 16x (single), 8x8 (dual), 8x8x4 (triple) on a budget mobo!
Relatively spacious between CPU and RAM
Standard ATX despite the innumerable features
Good retail bundle with USB 3.0 front port box
Unigue feature, 2 CPU fan headers - 1 x 4 pin, 1 x 3 pin
LGA775 mounting holes
Pleasing POST chirp instead of the usual flat beep
Detailed UEFI BIOS with 3 user named setting save slots
S3 sleep and resume works great
Very good CPU overclocking options
- 3 ways to set Vcore - Auto, Manual - fixed or offset
- fully adjustable power throttle - both short and long duration settings
- 5 levels of Vdroop control
BIOS P1.40 has the internal CPU PLL fix for higher o'cing

At present, this is probably the most competitive and capable mobo in its price category even officialy supporting Quad SLI and Crossfire. For a new product on the new LGA1155 platform, this is the most quirk free mobo I have tested so far - no cold boots/reboots/BIOS auto-recovery and no need to clear CMOS so far. In fact, for once I had little improvement suggestions to feedback to the mobo maker and its BIOS team.

Highly recommended - for those on a budget and also for those who are not, my personal favourite mobo so far.

Thanks for the pictures, it's a good looking board. I'll be picking up either the Extreme4 or 6 along with a 2500k when I get a chance Depends on how a few things play out

How long does it take to boot, is it a big improvement over the old Bios? Could you measure how many seconds to the pleasing beep sound, how many till the OS starts to load?

Might be nice mobo but it´s kind a hard to tell because your bandwidth is exceeded at Photobucket so no pictures is shown.

Great review and pics! I just got mine running today! 4.5GHz was my most stable using the auto OC. Would like to find the 1.40 BIOS and try some other options.

Hey Mac, didn't know you had an account at OCN too.

Lovely board, great PCI slot layout.

I'm assuming it's an 8+2 power phase design?
