First off, this motherboard has worked great for me most of the time and with general users this board will be more than acceptable however, using sli on this board is not great as the second slot limits the card bandwidth to 8 instead of 16x. The maximum gpu you can use in sli is therefore a 560ti before the board will limit you card. This i could let go however as that is more than enough power to play modern games. What i cant let go however is this board is pathetic if you intend to you ssd's. I have tried every port available on the board and i can not reach anywhere near the max read speed if my vertex 4 on this board where as i can without issue in a standard msi board. For what is suppost to a top end board this is poor but a good board for general use if your avoiding ssd drives.
