I have this Motherboard in my new PC that was custom built for me, its a fairly high specced PC and I'd say personally the motherboard looks nice and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, looks like they've paid a lot of detail intop producing it, in my opinion anyway. It houses my new processor which is an i7 860 which I did have a problem with running too hot after a while, however this is not the motherboards fault, it is Intels standard fan not being up to the job, so its been replaced with an Akasa fan, which keeps it 10 Degrees cooler now.
A downside I would mention first is that it does not have wifi connectivity which would be an added bonus because really, I like to keep my wireless Router upstairs but as it has an ethernet port, I am using that with the Router downstairs instead (makes for a quicker connection anyway).
Audio ports there are more than I have ever been used to before. In previous compter systems I've only been used to having one audio jack but this one has six, which I think is for 5.1 surround sound and connecting to separate speakers if you do so require.
It also has 8, yes 8 USB ports to name a few which is pretty good in my view, and Ethernet Port and Firewire connectivity making this pretty versatile. Also the Usual PS2 connectors for old style keyboard and mouse before they made everything USB.
All in all I havent had this a fantastically long time but it's served me well, looks attractive and a nice piece of engineering. Only downside is that it doesn't have Wifi at all.
Not giving 5 stars to everything because I have only had this PC a month so it yet has to pass some sort of durability testing
