Too bad because I would have wanted to give it a shot but I'm hooked on EVGA if not just for the fact I feel safer buying from them.
True, Asus support is just a bunch of drones... Only company with decent tech support is EVGA imo. The foxconn socket issue I doubt will effect you unless your trying to set world overclocking records. I got my i5 750 to 4.3 ghtz on this board 100% stable. and 4.5ghtz not stable but it will boot into the OS. Its a great OCing board.
Also, the review missed a few things. the "speeding hdd sata ports" (dum name
) do HARDWARE Raid. With my 2x 500gb samsung f3's I get 170mb per second read speeds. Also, it comes with a free 1 year of kaspersky anti-virus. I'm still kinda peeved about the sound card thing though only having entertainment mode...
Atleast, to my knowledge.
