    Love the capability to o/c to... 23.7GHz

    Still, nothing wrong with optimism.

    Hi,

    We've just fired it up and it managed a solid 255MHz base clock using the same overclocking parameters as the ASUS Crosshair.

    Looking at the cons and the SATA port comment is true, but only applies to a small percentage of people and these people I don't think would buy a £150 motherboard for a media PC.

    I would like to an innovation - which would be sata ports that can be turned 90 degrees.

    Good review Tarinder.

    Turning SATA ports would be amazing, I would how hard / easy that would be to implement...
