Newegg has reviews on the E770. There's got to be a reason for it to sell out really quickly after launch. I know there are other E770 owners around OCN...look about, ask opinions.

edit: you already own an RIIIE I take it...why bother changing out a great board?
I love my Rampage III and have no plans on switching boards. I'm helping a friend build his system. while I love my board, I would really like to see this one in action but I don't want to encourage him to get it because I want to test it. I would feel guilty if it turns out not to be as good so I figured it best to get some feedback on it.

LOL...turning your friend (err, his rig) into a guinea pig.

Well, it's still a relatively young board, but the Classified 2 was a rock-solid board as well, still is.

Newegg has them in stock again.

And actually...if he can fit a UD9 in his case, go with that.
