    I've got one - a blue one.



    Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.6ghz
    2x256MB OCZ PC3200
    Asus A8N SLI Deluxe
    6800GT and a 6600GT (although the 6600 isn't doing much in the way of work)
    FOUR 80GB Seagate SATA drives
    RAID 5 PCI card.

    12V dropped a tad when I added the three final hard drives in, but it's still holding up well.

    4 monitors?

    Also I'd take MBM readings with a pinch of salt - I get 11.6V, while a multimeter on the molex gives 12.14V and on the back of the ATX12V gives 12.13V. Given my multimeter is worth more than the motherboard, I'm more inclined to trust it.

    No just 2 monitors.

    I haven't checked with a multimeter in a while but as a rule speedfan is about .1-2 off for 12V on this board, so it's still pretty good.

    OCZ ModStream should be better though.
