Very good board. I always loved the WS series Asus boards. They are top notch board not only for workstations but also for servers and gaming PCs.

A dream board for sure, but unfortunately out of range for my checkbook. Great review guys. Was really surprised at the performance parity between it and the rather budget oriented ASRock board (tri-crossfire results aside). One thing WS boards always seem to excel in is layout. Every time I look at any WS board I think to myself, man that's the perfect layout for me and my hardware.

Agree with the board awesomeness, but my ASUS Rampage IV Extreme was cheaper than this board...

Only an existing user can explain the benefits of the WS board, in terms of stability after using for prolonged period of time. Any comments about that?

He's still using it as his main system - so that has to be worth something :)
