Cool. I will just say, make sure you update the BIOS. The early BIOS versions that ship with the board are crap. F5 is the newest on the Gigabyte and seems solid so far. I was using F4 for a while, and it was solid as well.
Also remember, it will default your RAM to 1.8 volts, make sure to crank it up to your RAM's spec's, 2.0 I think for HZ's, but make sure.
Oh, and Ctrl+F1 opens up the advanced options in the BIOS.
