    Our friend ORB did a long fat review of the board today. It performs well althrough X58 Classified ate it in the max BCLK department.
    The VRM's are 8 * 2 digital, VERY solid and are considered one of the most advanced on the market , only the Gigabyte solution is more overkill than this.
    The heatsinks temps are little bit higher in a non ventilated enviroment.
    The Thunderbolt is a little bit useless for where this board wants to be but it performs well.

    Thats the summary basically.

    the thunderbolt card (Killer NIC and Xonar essence on one board by the looks of it, they could sell it alone for 200$), 2 more USB3.0 ports (front); better PWM; wlan; intel gbe chip

    but i don't see the point in the thunderbolt card; why put an X-Fi unlocked chip + more expensive Intel gigabit ethernet chips onboard and add in another card which is better than the onboard stuff? they could save 50$ by removing X-Fi support and the intel gigabit ethernet chip...

    But that's bending the truth based on nothing.
    The Killer series from GB has even more Overkill VRM setup than this ASUS board.

    Gigabyte solution is the most complex and most extreme , even more than this which is considered therefore the 2nd best on the market from a simplified point of view.
