Fully featured with SATA 6 Gbps and USB 3.0.
Properly built to maintain high overclocks through longterm daily usage.
Lowered CPU power draw via T.Probe, reducing load power consumption by almost a third.
Excellent XMP support.
PCIe bridge keeps SATA and USB apart from graphics interface.
Excellent build quality.
Excellent board layout.
Supports either SLI or CrossFireX applications.
High "Auto" voltage settings.
Lack of software memory timing control.
"Hybrid" nature of the board leads to many clocking features.
SATA port limited to 5Gb/s by PCIe 2.0 interface.
Only one PCIe x16 slot is wired for x16.
SATA port for Optical Drive located at bottom of board.
Second set of DIMM sockets located under the CPU cooler (YMMV).
