I am very happy with this new motherboard. I had an EVGA P55 E657 FTW peviously, but it was damaged by UPS shipping. UPS was great with my claim. This Extreme 4 performs much better than the FTW and has more features. The only thing I don't like is the PCIE card retainers. They are very cheap and break when I try to remove the video card. Luckily there were 2 slots, so I took the unbroken one from the unused slot to repair the broken one. Are the little white VGA card retainer clips available? I just got it on Feb 17, and the clip broke of when I changed ny video card.
