It's been a little finicky so far, but I have it running good now. To start with, the BIOS was outdated (1202) and didn't support the 2700k. But copying the ROM to a USB was easy with the EZ Flash utility inside the BIOS.. worked great.

Had some problems getting the USB 3.0 to recognize my wireless adapter. Broke out the USB cable included with my adapter and it works now. Just can't plug straight into it.

I had 7950 XFire but decided to get out due to a lot of issues I began having with my games, Skyrim in particular. Skyrim is taking up most of my time right now and XFire stutters like crazy on it.

Hope you have better luck with yours. I have three 570s now.
