The overheating issues have been fixed.

I don't mind that it doesn't have a backplate, and it performs great!

I can't get mine above 2090MHz, but it still performs great!

Well, the H5 SF is covering 99% of the mobo, so, I can't really do that

Three stars for the motherboard, as it has issues getting above 4.4GHz, when I know the CPU is capable of doing so.

You CAN control the fan speeds, but, only in the BIOS.

EDIT: You can control it in the OS, but you need to install Gigabyte's utilities.

May get a second one once I get my build, and put 'em in RAID 0

Out of the Cooler Master Nepton 240M and the Swiftech H220X, which is the quietest, but also the best performer?

I will switch to a Z97 motherboard, and reference 980.
