I'm a little late to this thread but I have to say that I'm certainly impressed. Enough so that I'm gonna try one of these boards, even though I really don't need it. I've had my eye on it ever since I first spotted them at NewEgg. I've yet to see even a hint of a bad review, anywhere at all. I have a SB i7-2600K running 5 GHz 24x7 on air. I'd like to match that with my IB i7-3770K and then see about 6 GHZ 24x7 on water cooling. No more than that, unless it's too easy. I keep an eye on World Records but really don't care to go after one. 5GHz was my goal, now 6GHz is. Haswell will supposedly use less juice and run even cooler so I may then go after 7GHz. On air, possibly, but I really doubt that'll happen. Just speculation of a cpu that's yet to be in full production. I have no easy access to DI, much less LN or LH, so I'll stick with both air and water cooling and compete with only myself. It's much cheaper this way since I can safely OC to my own limits without risking an expensive cpu or mobo. And still have lots of fun. Congratulations Nick Shih. You've apparantly designed one of the best motherboards ever made. I'll be looking forward to your design of a Socket 1150 board.
