Very tempting. I got one about an hour and a half away. Nice price for an upgrade on my main rig. Then I can dedicate my 940 BE to crunching.

As a personal user of that board it's great! Don't let it fool you. Make sure you push CTRL+F1 at main screen in bios and you will be greeted by a plethora more bios options. Also the onboard is a downclocked 780G without UVD(block by drivers).
