    Intels boards haven't been half bad for a few years now, they just aren't quite competitively priced enough...

    Intel has always made some pretty stable boards, nice to see them try to make a gaming board. Next one might hit the mark....

    Before I read anything other than what this boards name was, I had to expand the main pic of the board. The skull looked as if it had horns and was wearing a business suit. Weird! I never knew Intel were followers of the Anti-Christ.
    Then I glanced over and immediately spotted the deal killer. The PCIe x16 slots.
    If you use the 1st and 3rd slots for SLi., so your top card doesn't fry, you're gonna lose every single thing along the bottom of the board. Something ASUS also used to do and finally fixed.
    Like I said, the deal killer.
