Overclockers Club have a look at this mobo and give us an idea of how it performs:

With features such as support for the latest 45nm processors (1333MHz and above), 100% solid state capacitors, new generation digital PWM, 8-channel home theater sound, three 16x PCI-E slots (2x, 16x, 1x4x) with Crossfire and PCI 2.0 support, the Abit IX 38 Speedster should not be just your average Sunday drive.

Read the full review at Overclockers Club:

The Abit IX38 Quad GT "Speedster" is designed around the Intel X38 and ICH9R chipsets. It features a silent cooling system to cool the chipsets and power regulation circuits. Unlike many of Abit's recent high end offerings, this board does not have the cooling strips built into the PCB to help generate some additional cooling capacity where it really needs it.

The I/O panel features enough connectivity to keep most people happy. The "Speedster" has four USB 2.0 connections, PS/2 for both the mouse and keyboard, Optical S/PDIF in and out, 1 IEEE1394 Firewire connection, 7.1 Audio and just a single RJ-45 Gigabit LAN connection. Abit has included a feature on this board that has been on the last few of its high-end offerings, the external CMOS clear button. This is easily one of the coolest features that Abit has used recently. Just power down, push the button, power up and change your settings and you are ready to go for the maximum clockspeed again. I feel this shows Abit's commitment to the enthusiast side of its business.
