I'll recommend against that, I purchased the one that seller sold in that thread and it wouldn't boot with i7, Xeon, DDR3 ECC, non-ECC, buffered, unbuffered, etc. The seller was however very cool about providing a refund, but was slow to respond to PM's, slow to ship, didn't ship the MB in an anti-static bag, and back near Thanksgiving was going through some life issues and was in the middle of relocating and such. I'd steer clear on this one. Plus those boards were never public release so there's next to no information about or available for them, no drivers, no BIOS, no manual, and very little on random tech forums, even fewer running builds within the last several years. I'd keep looking for something else.

In the VGA department, I believe I have a spare GTX 660 from an old SB build that's currently collecting dust, and maybe a GTX 770 2GB Windforce3OC (it's 50/50 if I can sell it yet) I could part with if you were interested.

Thank you very much for posting info about that board. I just saw the cheap price and that was it. I'm glad you posted more details about your experience and the board. I would have felt terrible if another person had to deal with what you did.
