Fairly well laid out
4 Dimm slots
6 SATA connector
e-SATA a nice surprise
SATA, USB and other headers all cramped into one corner
It needs a newer 8-pin EATX CPU power supply plug (not the standard 4-pin)
I put this board together in a new system in about 90 minutes with no problems. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to build a nice home system with lots of flexibility. The ability to handle the AMD Phenom quad-core at this price was a pleasant surprise.
