Great, but don't expect a lot from either USB3 or SATA3...

...they have no real-world performance advantage (in fact, the Marvell controller is significantly slower than the 'old-school' ICH)...

...there are no devices to take advantage of them (but may be worth-while as 'future-proofing)...

...1156 platform is already 'shy' PCIe lanes, you certainly don't want to 'waste' them...

Hey I know that thread is quite old but I would like to buy this mobo and I have question:

razor512 did you test this mobo with ESXi 4? I would like install ESXi 4 and use VT-d (VMDirectPath) on it. What do you think about it? Did you test it?

Sorry for my bad english

+1 to bilbat

And remember that the USB 3.0 is only supported when you don't have Crossfire enable.

Thanks :sol: 

USB3 may soon become useful - a number of 3 spec devices have already been shown at the recent Hannover CeBIT show; SATA3 may be a long time giving us any 'real-world' benefits, and certainly not with the currently available Marvell implementation:

My advice: when you see an Intel southbridge supporting them, it's time to 'take the leap' [:bilbat:2]
