1. It runs very hot

2. You need to use the chipset fan which directs hot air directly on to the back of your GFX card.

3. The fan it very noisy and will be the noisiest part of your entire PC, just to cool your chipset

4. It only has 4 SATA ports and they are all angled towards the front panel.

5. Don't use the supplied SATA cables as they do not fit correctly and will result in breakage of the SATA port, (I have 2 that are broken already, but I was able to repair them with supper glue )

6. There is only one internal USB header, so you will only be able to use it for the front panel.

On the other hand, I have had a very stable computer and and it suits my need for the time being, some good points are.

1. Overclocks very well, (I have my E8500 @ 4.5Ghz)

2. Works well with Windows 7, (No driver issues and very stable)

3. Can run SLI at full x16 speed with both cards, although I have not personaly been able to test this yet.

4. fairly good value for money

5. If you live in the US you will have the stepup option if you want to upgrade, (Unfortunately I live in Australia and don't have that option).

6. Supports all Intel CPU's aside from the i7's

7. You can Reset the CMOS with a button instead of having to remove batteries or changing jumpers, located at the bottom.

8. All solid capacitors, for better stability and durability.

I'm sure ther is more but that's all I can think of ATM, good luck deciding

Hello Mr Grim.

Thanks for this, I 'was' looking at this board; the temp issues have made up my mind.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Again, from what I've read the 780i is a much better buy than the 750i, especially if you catch a rebate (even if they take forever).

Windows 7 Ult 64 bit - RC 7600

Here is a quick couple shots of my Rig, you can see the specs below my sig.

Nothing overly fancy as far as modding goes. In the 2nd pic you can see that the case is huge! and actually pretty poor air flow. I just added 4 extra 120 mm fans 2 on the bottom and 2 on top. Seems to have helped keep the air moving. Plus you can see my custom air cooling solution for my Furnace of a Video Card. Lowered idle temps by 10C and gaming temps by 20C.
