It's a very powerful board . . . with a very clean lay out . . . and it has all features I needed.

. . . but like I said . . . it's not available yet . . . and I'm deeply concern about the BIOS problems I have read . . . still waiting for more news on this MOBO.

Could you post me a link to the said problem. I'm a little lacking in current mobo info.
