i can tell you this motherboard is awesome, as i own one, the best value mid range motherboard around, good for overclocking, multi gpu's, and a lot of features. A particularly good feature is its deep sleep. I dont know how it works, but the power supply and everything completely shuts off, yet when you press the power to turn it on it instantly comes on. It must keep standby voltage going to ram or something..... It is also capable as using your ram for a ram drive, which you normally have to buy software for.
