On the board we find a few nice features that were noted but really need further coverage before we get into the BIOS:
One thing that is very important to any Overclocker or hobbyist is access to the features on the motherboard. To truly get a feel for this board, testing needed to be done in the box and it was discovered that access is not an issue when the board is installed. There is no need to remove components to get to a hidden jumper. If you can open your case you can get to and use the features.
The Dual Bios and CMOS reset buttons are the cream of the crop on this board where usefulness is concerned. Botching an overclock is almost a daily event when you are dialing a new rig. The time these features save and the convince of switching from a bad OC to good configuration quickly, is a value added.
The on board test points can be an asset for anybody willing to use them. They can be use to test the accuracy of monitoring software:
A moisture resistant PCB (humidity protection) is a big bonus for the extreme cooling and this board can take the cold as demonstrated by Team AU:
Glass Fabric PCB technology uses a new PCB material which reduces the amount of space between the fiber weave, making it much more difficult for moisture to penetrate compared to traditional motherboard PCBs. This offers much better protection from short circuit and system malfunction caused by humid and damp conditions.
All in all this board is packed with all the features you need to get to the top while sacrificing only what you may not need.
