Aside from that one small typo, this is a board that has its good and bad side to it. My next rig will probably be mATX because I love small.

Great review, but in the meantime Jody, keep searching for that perfect mATX board for me! :P

Good review I was hoping you guys would get your hands on this board.

If you end up selling the board drop me a PM/Email. I am in need of one of these for my current project Daedalus

great review
about the Corsair memory.. did you use the new CMG6GX3M3A1866C7 or the old TR3X6G1866C7GTF (removed from the market)?

I believe it is the older one that is used. Why replace what ain't broke, right? ;)

haha, Mike, but i didn't use it because it was broke

yes, it was the older TR3X6G1866C7GTF kit that we reviewed here...Corsair Dominator GT 3x2GB PC3-15000 Triple Channel Memory Review . they were working last time i had use this kit a few weeks earlier. when i attempted to run the XMP profiles i would get errors trying to load Windows. thinking something was wrong with the XMP profile pickup i set everything up manually with the same results. dropped in the Blades at the same settings and all was well. needless to say after some further testing on other platforms, it was determined two of the TR3X6G1866C7GTF modules failed.

these modules had been used a lot up until this point of sitting on a shelf for a couple weeks and i thought they were in the clear as far as the sudden death syndrome that was experienced with some of the earlier batches of Hyper...apparently not.
