    I know that this Mobo is very new, but does anyone have any experience with
    or know of any review about it? I'm getting ready to build a system based
    on the board, that is as soon as I can get my hands on it. The vendor I
    ordered it from has it on backorder and has told me that it should be
    available sometime this week...Right! Anyhow, I plan to mount it in SM's
    SC742T-550 Chassis. This case has 7 SATA trays connected to a common
    backplane. This is an ideal fit for me as I plan to add a Promise FastTrak
    S150-SX4 SATA RAID controller. My plan is to mount a 36GB WD Raptor to the
    onboard SATA controller and configure it for only System/Application use.
    Then mount 3-120GB SATA HDD's to the Promise card using RAID 5 (or maybe
    RAID 10 with 4 drives) for my data files. I may later add a 200GB SATA
    drive to the onboard controller for use in TiVo like HDD recording of HDTV
    programs (off the air) with an ATI HDTV Wonder tuner card. I have the HDTV
    card in another computer right now and it...well...works Wonders! Beautiful
    playback of HD programs. I live in the Ft. Laud/Miami area and we have 11
    TV stations broadcasting Digital signals.

    Any comments or suggestions?
