I had to RMA one board. that sucked hard.

it barely boots with any ram above 1.8v (read, DDR2-1066), even with the bios set to >1.8 - everytime the computer shuts down it apparently thinks the overclock has failed and resets the bios.
nevermind trying anything with 4 sticks of ram.

the FSB walls at some low value too..

I've seen better boards for $150 with the same features then this $300 piece of #$%& !

I RMA a board once in 28 years

My question about this board. It says X16,X16 slots. Is it running the Nvidia chip to allow dual x16? How is it getting the dual x16 when the P55 only supports one x16 lane? Just curious if anyone knows how they did this? Or are they saying you will get x16 from all the red slots. As in the Maximus Formula, only the top slot is x16, if you put the card anywhere else you only get x8.

It will not be the first Asus Engineer miracle just look at the first maximus extreme , you can xfire with different level of GPU , with their crosslink chips add in, all true I never test it, even if I have one.

It's a ROG board or not

I found a review and unboxing of the board Here. It comes with a huge amount of accessories, but the pricepoint is steep at 250 pounds.
