Good review though! Nice to see the new Chip punching the "bully" in the mouth here and there.

Glad I held off on grabbing a new GPU, I'm thinking my Crosshair IV is a bit long in the tooth, so Its time for an upgrade. (Btw, still an awesome value mobo, lasted me years and could keep going if it weren't obsessive, lol)
Yes you read it right. x87. Legacy. Most compilers until a few years ago used it. Some odd ones still do.
