Well I've gotta warn you guys about the ASUS P5N7A-VM -- it will destroy all the data on your disk. This happened to me two years ago when I had a power fail. At the time I blamed it on the BTRFS filesystem, and switched to RAID10 and JFS. But it's just happened to me again. Power fail, and now my whole 4TB array is destroyed. ("Bad fs/superblock", etc) So I am ditching this mobo fast. I thought I was safe with RAID10, but I've just lost two years of my extensive and valuable movie collection, and it's infuriating.
I want the AMD platform, but must have microATX. The only mobos with the newest nVidia NF980ASLI chipset (MSI NF980-G65, Asus M4N82 DELUXE, m4n98td) are ATX, as well as those with the NF780ASLI, so it looks like I am forced to stick with Intel.
