I bought this motherboard from Overclockers UK back in April this year. I paid £170 including VAT + delivery.
Now it's available at a giveaway price of £79.99.
Please note this board uses the newer DDR3 memory ( four slots), so shop around for bargains.
Excellent for overclocking and has a chamber for dry ice/ liquid nitrogen.

The BlackOps delivers the ultimate in computing power for todays' most demanding applications, and enables greater agility and control through specialist hardware and BIOS features. Based on the Intel X48 chipset and supporting processors up to 2000MHz FSB (via overclocking), BlackOps is designed for high-performance computing; 3x PCI-e 2.0 x16 slots with CrossFireX support enable powerful graphics configurations, whilst unique enthusiast features such as the 4-in-1 Quantum Cooler enable air/water/LN2 cooling of the NB, SB and VRM areas. The highly-configurable Quantum BIOS reveals a huge range of performance settings and tuning capabilities, and coupled with the robust 8 phase Digital PWM, enthusiasts can take their PC to new overclocking heights! The dedicated Sonar daughter card provides high-quality 7.1 channel HD audio, whilst Dual Gigabit LAN, eSATA, FireWire, USB2.0 and SATA RAID are all integrated onboard. Special accessories include the Quantum Flow GPU cooling system, for improving air-flow around graphics cards, and the Quantum Lap motherboard tray for easier access to the motherboard when on the testing bench.

Why the hell would you pay that for an X48 board when even back then you could of bought an X58 board and upgraded to an i7. This board is dd3 so you either had the ram when you bought the board or bought it at the same time. Im not being funny mate but you must need your head looking at there is no reason at this point in time or back then that you would consider that sort of money for what is soon to be obselete.

For anyone to consider a new build using this board is madness even as an upgrade its like throwing money down the drain.It wouldn't have been so bad if it where ddr2 and you where trying to prolong the life of your old component's but it being ddr3 just kills it because most of us are still on ddr2 so its not a viable upgrade path and if you buy this you will need the memory aswell you may aswell just buy a new i5-P55 setup or an i7-X58 and have a brand new setup thats good for a good while and way faster. The i5 is due with the P55 boards and they should start for a mid range board around the price of this.

As someone else has mentioned it a pretty pants board that has issues at that price id have an Asus P45 if i was going to throw my money away.

Because it's £50 cheaper for the board and the CPUs are also much cheaper! :thinking:
