1 out of 5 eggsBuyer beware!

Pros: Looks good on paper

Cons: On my initial attempt to boot I heard 3 beeps repeated over and over. The technical specifications say that this is a memory problem. I swapped the memory, DDR3 1333, with some memory that I knew was good. Same 3 beeps.

Other Thoughts: I should have heeded almost every review that said to not get a 3rd generation processor for this board.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid board but only for those with Sandy in mind

Pros: Solid integrated controllers for all motherboard parts. Surprisingly good support for Windows XP as long as AHCI/RAID drivers are slipstreamed in install (motherboard has no floppy ports!)

Cons: No support for anything not on the disk provided by intel e.g. wifi and bluetooth as they aren't made by Intel nor directly monitored by them I guess. More of a last minute "condiment" to add to the spice of a gamer board. Worthless Ivy support as newer bios builds have been known to have issues with either overclocking support as a trade off for Ivy support.

Other Thoughts: Stick with Sandy chips and 1333 ram and you will be happy. Try to do Ivy and you either will be limited with troubleshooting overclocking or memory OR will enjoy beeps forever.

3 out of 5 eggsNot sure yet

Pros: I so needed a newer board w/ at least 2 PCI slots for my super expensive audio cards.

Cons: Be mindful of your chip & generation. I bought a gen. 3 and it originally worked w/ a gen. 2 or less. Thanks to Intel, I'm waiting for a 404 version (they go from 400 to 404 BIOS) that should work w/ my gen. 3 processor and everything else. The 'sale' one which I exchanged twice was a 402 version. Unfortunately I have to EAT this first board after several attempts at installation. Bent pins. No thanks to Newegg for selling me a mismatched processor. Hate saying it. But I feel like I made several 'rookie' mistakes as well. Dual channel memory, get 2 sticks; 32bit OS=4Gb; 64bitOS= up to 32GB;Check the manufacturer's website, the processor. and the BIOS version first before you build your new awesome machine. Or you'll be sorely disappointed like me for a month; and many phone calls later...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Board

Pros: Intel Rapid Storage.....need I say more?
This board has ran solid with no issues whatsoever for a year.
The temperature monitoring is second to none.
Drivers are being released regularly.
Not sure what all the fuss is about with the bad reviews this board has gotten. This board has tons of features and is not for a rookie system builder.
Been running Battlefield 3 and Black ops 2 on full settings.
Thanks Intel for this great board.

Cons: It doesnt dispense Jagermeister.

Other Thoughts: If you have built a gaming rig before, get it.

1 out of 5 eggsWill Not boot

Pros: Non so far

Cons: Will not boot. Continues to get an error 15. I researched the issue and figured out it had to due with the bios having issues with newer intel processors so I purchased an older processor and got it boot one time and installed bios ver 39. Now it will no longer boot after 20 or more attempts. Now I have 4 junk boards that won't work with anything!

Other Thoughts: Horrible product with no helpful support from intel.

4 out of 5 eggsINTEL WUT?

Pros: good board over all. But will not suggest this board to anyone or buy another intel board again b/c of the vast about of problems I heard on the bios and intel support on ram. Who would have more supprot for the 3rd generation and not the 2nd generation chips for a z68?

Cons: no much versatility between chips, staying at bios 28 a lot of tweaking, I bought this based on the ratings but noticed after people was having a problems with ram. I just set the xmp profile to 1600 no problems for me but I did not hear of any one getting any stable ram higher then 1600. also cannot get a high overclock and think the overclock assistant is junk on this board not stable at all. manual settings ok @ 4.2

Other Thoughts: my build
1600 gskill pc3 12800 16gb
evga 1gb video 560ti
hyper 212 evo (fan touches ram)
750w psu
a hard drive blah blah

2 out of 5 eggsAlmost there

Pros: Almost works like a motherboard should

Cons: Extraordinarily annoying problem with on board LAN adapter. Board will not see the adapter from power on. But will see it from reboot. Extremely poor design. Intel offers no help on this at all.

Other Thoughts: Kicking myself in the you know what for not going with an ASUS. Unless you want to spend an additional amount on an external LAN card, stay away from this board.

2 out of 5 eggsNot recommended

Pros: Z77 capable
Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST)
* On paper it looks good *

Cons: Tempermental ang bug laden.
- RAID detection was 95% i.e. failed to boot 5%
- Detection and use of other RAID controllers tempermental
- Inconsistent problems with boot order using PCIe card

Other Thoughts: Here is the story on my review...

The board worked, most of the time with the RST and became more tolerable after v.0037 BIOS upgrade. However, it was still temperamental with cards in the PCI or PCIe slots, including video cards. I had problems with this board recognizing the following: two PNY Quadro 1800's, a Zotac 610, and an LSI 8201 RAID controller.

What is even more dissappointing is the chipset improperly identifying sata HDs attached directly to the board themselves.

I have contacted Intel regarding some of the afformentioned issues and were helpful... to an extent (pull the battery and clear CMOS), but I don't believe that this should be a standard practice for the end user to keep there machine going.

Maybe if they would work on removing the bugs from their BIOS they would get a better review, but as it stands I believe that I am quite generous with 2 eggs!

2 out of 5 eggsokay motherboard but has issues

Pros: Great motherboard setup. Overall runs really well.

Cons: This says it is compatible with ivy bridge. It even says so on intels website. This thing is not out of the box compatible. You must update the bios before it is compatible. This means you have to have a sandy bridge cpu. I was lucky enough to have a friend who was doing a build at the same time as me and loaned me his sandy bridge.
