Their support is brutal and they want you to pay balls out for simple accessories that should cost 25% of the price they are charging. But that's just me. Sucker away :)
Support brutal??? I bought a $100 mobile rack from them (through NCIX), and after I broke a piece on it, they bent over backwards to get me a replacement part next-day FedEx.

How many other would do the same, free of charge, no questions asked, for something that was entirely my fault?

Considering the price they charge AND the products they sell. I don't think sending replacement part via next business day is not unreasonable.

I've RMA'd more than a 100 dollar mobile rack, I've done RMA on motherboard, barebone among few other parts. It was really slow and painful to describe my experience. YMMV but that's just my experience. It's not to say that I won't continue to use them and I agree that their products are high quality.

It should be noted that from the full TweakTown review, the board is definitely not ready for prime time, which the reviewer address. Additionally, it is stated that Seamicro is fully aware of the issues and acknowledges that they are working on them; so we won't be seeing it on the store shelves anytime soon - next two weeks.

LOL well if it's a Supermicro board, that should automatically give all l33t gamers a 1FPS advantage straight out of the box!

I'm actually okay with this.
Coming from a Foxconn background with boards, now that Intel is killing off their MB division I can do without all the glitz and glamour that other manu's seem to need on boards for something rock stable.

It would be nice to see some mainstream SM boards.

Exactly. Anyone that can add some competition to ASUS is fine by me.
