Default Intel DZ77GA-70K mobo..anyone using?

I am not one to usually have any interest in Intel branded motherboards, but this new Intel DZ77GA-70K board seems to breaking their ho-hum mold a bit.

This board has lots of features, including new visual bios, Intel 10 channel HD audio, Dual Intel Lan, and of course various superb chipsets. It also wifi and bluetooth for about $225. I have read its built solidly and OC's well. In fact the only bad thing I read was that it takes more tweaking than other boards to achieve super high OC's....but I'm not so sure this is a negative. I do hear intel support is awful for mobo's.

Anyone out there have experience with this board or can point me to a detailed review? I must say this board intrigues me, and has a great price point for its features. It's good to intel stepping up its game with mobo's, and should have trickle down effects to other mfg's.

Check out their new bios here (just ignore that horrible commercial...Youtube SKIP :)
