£157 is a massive bargain for the features it provides. Lovin' the fact that they provide 8 SATA 6 ports and improved on board audio.

Awesome review as always TTL

Great review Tom, can't wait to see what the MPower brings in comparison. As for the CPU temps, looks like we could see delidding again due to the temps. It's a shame intel haven't addressed that issue

Guess you misunderstood me. I was more like in awe that youve put out this many major reviews in such a short period of time and that youve probably worked a whole lot more than youve slept the last few weeks. Basically meant as a compliment.

nice review (as always- thanks) and nice motherboard

the only comment I'd make ref CPU temps - I completely agree with what you are saying about the fact that games don't raise temps anywhere near the CPU temps that are reaching during OCCT etc - but I do find with my 3770k that if I do any video encoding in a software package that uses AVX- such as Handbrake - my CPU temps get to near that of the worst CPU stress-tests ...
