3 out of 5 eggsGREAT BOARD! TERRIBLE COMPANY

Pros: Everything was great with the board, loads of memory capacity, SOLID BUY.

Cons: ASUS RMA and repair is a joke. The board stopped getting power to the back bridge one day so I sent the board in, ASUS then held the board for 7 days to tell me that it was damaged which it wasn't. This is the second time dealing with their services and they are just awful. Everything except for my initial purchase has been a nightmare and cost me over $200 for damage I didn't do.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Massive on board system fans 5 ports. This board come with to fans onboard for the back panel are and the sata area. The software that comes with this is extremely helpful when it comes to heat. I have monitored temps and never above 45 cel and this is with a corsair water cooler h105i. no adapter needed for water cooler to motherboard. Manual is easy to follow and very good at explaining although it can always be better. I highly suggest reading all the manual for working the bios correctly. Read for five and setup might take you ten .. dont read and your talking 30 easy if it has been awhile since you built a machine.USB three header is great. Expansion slots are perfect as i added a pcie-1 card for extra usb three slots. Yes it is overkill but it is worth it. Especially the speed. I did have to la with setting on the bios to make it run the corsair dominator ram at 1866 but that was no problem after that which brings me back to REad the manual..
The biggest thing i noticed when i first received this board was heavy and weigh of just the board itself. So it has a bit of quality and i looked closely at the soldering on the board. which is very close if not military grade. It will handle heat. Now as for the cooling..... i do not recommend big air units as it might put a lot of stress on the board.
And if you move the machine after it might put stress on joints or parts of the board that will or could break but you wont see.

As far as the tweeks and the peeks.. this board is right on target and just about as good as it gets.. I have been a fan on MSI boards for years.... my first was an asus which died way back .. but not Asus has regain a bit of my trust... I will update in a month after the tests tweeks and what not..



my system build is ..

InWin GrOne case
Asus Sabertooth x79
I7-4930 chip
32gb Corsair Dominator 18866 memory
XFX R9-290a video card
anker pcie-1 usb3 add on card

and 10 fans moutned all over the case... and it is silent if you use Cougar fans.

Cons: not a single thing at all....

Other Thoughts: only thing i could think of is maybe angle the sata ports straight up in stead of angled off board.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a Beast

Pros: None. Looks nice and shiny though........

Cons: Do not by this Mb unless you like pulling your hair out. I have updated this stupid BIOS over a 100 times over the last four days. ASUS support phone disconnected. Now it,s all instant messaging. I got got this as part of a new egg/max PC package. Asus says ram not listed maybe bad CPU/mb or mb sensors.....How helpful. gotta go now and find my worst enemy and give him this board. bye!

Other Thoughts: I have been building machines since the. 80,s and I always got ASUS after this experiance ,no more

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Hard to give a good review since board doesn't see all the memory. Memory is form approved list and has never worked. Asus support is great but some where along the way Newegg never shipped the RMA I request through Asus

Cons: Ok, first off mem does not register all sticks. Locks up randomly on reboot it does an F1 /F2 to reset memory.
Bios update failed to correct. Since this is a production machine I tolerated the issue for 6 months and 2 bios updates.

5 out of 5 eggsDRAM speed

Pros: The X79 is a bulletproof MB. It works and is nice to look at also.

Cons: DRAM speed is reported as 667 Mhz. using the system information tool. If there is a way to run it at 1333 or higher I would give this board 6 eggs.

Other Thoughts: The MB temperature runs 40 C, while the 3.0 runs a bit hotter. The room temp is steady at 77 F.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -lots of features and a pretty solid board

Cons: -difficult to access the raid controller menu, screen flashes pretty quicky
-all sata ports are either ahci or raid, no combination, one controller
-no front-of-case lan activity header
-trying to find a driver on asus's website is a major headache

Other Thoughts: keep in mind that raid configurations can and do fail, they are not a replacement for good backups.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board!!

Pros: Everything about thus board is top notch! Great middle of the road board price wise. Great military themed colors.
