5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: It works great with my previous generation i7. My old motherboard died after about 6 months of use, bought this one to replace it. Have had this one for about 8 months now hasn't caused me any issues at all, and lets face it what more can you expect from your motherboard.

Cons: I'll have to get a different motherboard when I decide to upgrade my cpu.

Other Thoughts: It has red LEDs while the rest of my rig uses blue LEDs but I can live with that. Also it has a line of red LEDs in the back designed to look somewhat like Kit from Knight Rider but you can't see it since it's on the back

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome- Kick "Rear End" Board

Pros: I love this board. It was a awesome purchase. I am a gamer. the board is specific for that purpose. I have had no problems with in in over 3 months that I have been using it. Lots of tweeks for the memory and processor. easy to back out of overclock settings if they dont work.

Cons: None at this time.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Awesome layout. Nice colors. Booted up first time with no issues. Force reset/Clear CMOS is a nice feature. Can actually put in older HDD and still recognize OS without having to format or reinstall...that's crazy good!

Cons: None of my OC's are working. Can't seem to hold ANY OC. Not memory, CPU or voltage. It's probably something on my knowledge and I'm just doing it wrong. I googled searched what others are doing and still can't hold any OC. She doesn't blue screen or anything, just doesn't hold it. In fact, CPUID shows it actually DOWNCLOCK with a X9 multiplier instead of 20 or 21. I wish it offered the turbo boost like other boards do. Weird, so I just leave it at stock...oh well.

Other Thoughts: No need to take an egg off for the OC features not working. Like I said, it's probably just on my end. I'll keep trying. As long as the board works at stock with no issues I'll take it. I love the board either way. Worth the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: Bought this when my P7P55D died. Build went smooth. Was surprised at all the lights. So far all is good. Foxconn has surprised me with this board.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: It is just amazing, I built my computer and nothing went wrong during the startup. Overclocking is easy for me

Cons: Nothing to be honest, Maybe should of had more fan power pins :P

Other Thoughts: Would recommend for anyone using a 1156 socket cpu :P

5 out of 5 eggsCoffee

Pros: Haven't had this very long, but it's very promising so far. My Newegg package came with a packet for instant coffee, also; what this means? I'm not entirely sure. So far there have been no problems, whatsoever, except for a quick change of the bios settings to see my SATA drive.
I'll update this if anything happens, but so far it seems great with stock cpu speeds. I want to give an initial impression with as much detail as seems necessary.

Cons: The third PCI E x16 is a little too low in my case (NZXT Phantom), so the gpu hits the power supply- this means that 3 way SLI is probably unlikely to happen with a larger card. I wanted to have a wider SLI to have better airflow, but it seems okay for now.

The RAM slots seem a little close to the cpu. My fan and heatsink are small, but it'd be a close fit to get a RAM stick in the first slot.

When going into sleep mode, the case fans don't power down, unlike my last motherboard. Not sure exactly what to do or what that means.

Other Thoughts: Running SLI successfully with two GTX 460s, running an i5 760 at stock speeds (reading reviews about Foxconn sockets has me a little worried about overclocking much). Using Corsair Vengeance at 1600 mhz for my RAM.

So far I'm quite pleased and recommend it, but I can only say so much, having it for such a short time.

5 out of 5 eggsFOXCONN FOR THE WIN!!!!

Pros: Does what it says, very very nice looking, the night rider light caught me by surprise and im glad it has is cause its very different from other mobos. So far rock solid, good manufacturer. Great bios

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is my fourth foxconn quantum board, i had the black ops x48 which i loved, then the blood rage gti, and now i have the Bloodrage (non-gti) as my gaming rig, and this Inferno as a workhorse and i love it, cant wait to buy the x79 quantum force.
I got a super sweet deal on a i7 870 and decided to build it, this board was the best priced and the best board left for the now rip 1156 platform, but a great platform none the less, happy about my purchase and even happier that foxconn jumped back on the bandwagon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsOrdered wrong part.

Pros: Feature rich MB, easy to setup. Docs' are good, but like all docs' they could be better. only a week with it , will update as needed.

Cons: NSF

Other Thoughts: This MB is more than I had hoped to get for the money. The first MB my wife ordered as a surprise was an 1155... had to return it for an 1156 and Newegg went all out to make it right for me. When you can't get support from so many companies and one comes thru... Oh happy day... Newegg thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsBig bang for your buck!

Pros: Awesome motherboard for the price. No reason to discard your 1156 cpu's. Very solid build and still a very respectable machine to today's standards.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Even though the board says it only supports i5 and i7 I tested the board with an i3 550 - it worked great. Mine came with P03 bios, P07 is the latest. FOX live update worked on the bios but not for drivers. I didn't mess with live update too much since I typically don't use live update tools. Installed win7 without a hitch. I couldn't be more happy with this board. For the price I may order a second.

My build:

i5 750
8G Corsair Vengeance
460GTX
Corsair 650W p/s
WD 1TB black drive
LG Bluray
Cooler Master Elite 430 case

4 out of 5 eggsEye candy

Pros: looks awesome lots of lights. fast for the price. auto corrected bios didn't have to reinstall windows! Big plus! and let my ram rum at stock speed (1600).

Cons: None so far its a 1156 board not 1155 board so what! Stop complaining. Oh... 1rst and second pci 2.0 too close together makes it hard too cross fire unless you use 2nd and 3rd pci 2.0. It's just off. That's why it gets 4 egg's not 5.

Other Thoughts: 1156 socket i5 problem? what problem get a better cpu cooler! Had an Asus maximus 3 formula. 3 rma's took 2.5 years to complete. And still don't have my sound card I payed for them to ship back. Foxconn no complaints.
