I just bought one and have not had a chance to "really" play with it. Before I bought it I read many, many reviews. The reason I bought it is because it has more slots than the Asus. From what I read and was told there were a lot of DOA boards early on, but the latter shipments were good. I also know that AMD removed all the KT7 series board from their recomended list, but I have not been able to find out why. I think it is a good board, just be careful who you buy from.
