Looks good! I already ordered a K7 Master, which will do me fine, but this board certainly does look to have some nice features.

One thing to remember, even though it has 4 DIMM slots, you have to use ECC memory in order to use more than 2. Not a huge deal of course, ECC doesn't cost much more than the regular memory, but it's something to be aware of.

All in all, looks like a nice board, looking forward to some reviews!
