Nothing quite matches that new-motherboard smell.

Indeed! :D .. i just installed it & everything seems to be fine.
most of what i'm liking in this mobo - aside from the o/cing potential - is the space between the PCI-E slots & the BIOS SLI option , no more jumpers hassle!

So is this the best board for SLI/Overclocking by far?

For O/C yes i believe so , but for SLI i think the ASUS A8N-SLI32 beats it for its dual SLI x16 capability.

Ok, so did you buy the board because of it's overclocking potential or another reason?

What do you use 4 pc's for?

SH0DAN : Yes.

Buenamos : Everything. upgrading from a regular nF4 SLI-D i got more SLI space , HQ components , more features (like less on-board power connectors , better layout etc..) , O/C potential & longer life of course!

Allaahu_Akbar : Read the sig ;) .. the budget PC will be used for testing or casual/outdoors usage.

slaWter : Thanks! :D
