You could give us a user review [:D]

 

Just checking the price of that board on newegg and it seems way too much for me. Personally, I wouldn't want to spend that much for a LGA 775 board at this time. I am also iffy about sticking DDR3 with the older architecture. Not sure how well the chipset is compared to the memory controller on the new Core i7/5/3.

 

Other than that, I think the general reason is that Super Micro isn't really geared towards the enthusiast crowd. You don't see them marketing gamer/enthusiast/OC friendly boards like EVGA, Asus, etc. And that is mainly the crowd that makes up the forums and review site community. Who knows, they may be superior boards, but that isn't the point. A professor once said in lecture, "Anyone can make something, but not everyone can sell it." So either Super Micro has problems competing with the bigger brands or they aren't even trying to target people like us. Just my thoughts.
