Been running this board in my PC for about a month now. Absolutely no problems so far. Both Sata3 ports are being occupied by my SSD and HDD and 1 of the 4 Sata2 ports occupied by my disk drive. No problems installing CPU and aftermarket cooler. GTX 570 fits in no problem and no struggle to install 2 sticks of Corsair Vengence. One thing I particularly like about this board is that when installing only 2 sticks of RAM, you use the 2 slots furthest away from the CPU. This allows more space for an aftermarket CPU cooler to be installed.
