Cons

SLI bridge doesn't come with the motherboard and the slots are far apart, so need to go out and find a longer than usual bridge

doesn't have internal graphics, won't work without a graphics card

1 agrees

not enough clearance around the CPU for a larger after-market fan

1 agrees

SATA ports can easily be covered up if you use multiple GPUs in the slots

this mobo has one very huge problem once you install 2 hd 4870's on it they cover up the sata ports. cross fire ready i think not what good is the crossfire if it covers up my sata ports. MSI king of the IDIOT throne again.
