A nice effort by Intel. I will be considering this board once the BIOS matures and higher overclocks can be achieved....

The board has a great layout , on of the best of all p55 / p67 Boards
BUT for this one i suggest a tower WITHOUT a side window ; unless you
want to get eye cancer from looking at that thing...
