jason,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A great feature rich motherboard
On-board Sound Blaster Recon3Di
sli/xfire on a mATX mobo (if you have a case big enough)
Bad points:
A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.

PCI-e slot placement in a mATX case could be a problem for sli/xfire and the PCI-e x1 slot is completely engulfed by any gfx card known to man making it kind of pointless.

@Richard "UEFI "bios" a little bit juddery when using mouse."
Updating to the latest non beta bios fixed that for me.

Sebastian, Cheltenham Features!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good PCI-X layout, if you think about it if it was 16X then 8X then 4X the first card wouldnt get air flow as the second card was blocking it.
Amazing Dedicated audio card for headphones
Great looking board with nice green and black colour scheme and the PCB had outstanding rich black colour to it. You are barely able to see the circuitry.
There are a lot of brilliant other features too, buy it and would find out ;)
Bad points:
The only bad thing about this board (and this is just being picky) is that the south bridge gets quite warm but its not something major.

Richard,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very well made board, and with built-in Intel network and impressive Creative Recon3d, is actually very good value. Worked flawlessly out of the box. Fan control in UEFI actually decent, though a little basic -works with both 4-pin (PWM) or 3-pin (voltage control) fans.
Bad points:
PCIe slot placement for SLI/xfire is daft for a mATX case.
UEFI "bios" a little bit juddery when using mouse.
