1 out of 5 eggsComputers should not be a fire hazard

Pros: Ran well for the most part, used it for over 4 years.

Cons: Caught fire randomly while not under load. Sparks, smoke and actual flames coming out of the middle of the MB, if fire alarm had not gone off I could have lost my home.

Other Thoughts: Computer was behind to surge protectors, so not an external problem. Computer runs cool, CPU normally at 34c even when under heavy load.

4 stars for running well for 4 years, -4 for being a fire hazard.

4 out of 5 eggsPMW needs a Upgrade

Pros: its 4 way SLi Ready "awesome"
everything works great! but could be better

Cons: no SATA 6GB/s
PMW needs Upgrade(redesign) bc CPU needs alot of Volts vs the ASUS Rampage 3 Extreme dont need much volts
Should drop the IDE controller

Other Thoughts: its only mobo with single CPU socket with 4 way SLi Ready newegg has to offer.
I would not recommend go with SR-2 get better results with a Single CPU setup

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible MoBo - DO NOT BUY!

Pros: The mobo has some good features that make it a unique and spectacular product if it actually worked.

Cons: I've never gotten this mobo to work 100% for more than a week. When I first used it, getting it to post was a hit-or-miss feat.

After reinstalling my OS, it finally began to work, but the on-board audio gave out after a few days. I continued using for about a week, searching everywhere for driver updates, to no avail. Finally I came across a post on the EVGA forum that recommended a BIOS update, so I did it.

Now the mobo doesn't post and gives a keyboard (?) error. I tested all my components on other comps with ASUS mobos and they all worked fine.

I will never go back to EVGA again.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board because it was the least expensive and unique, given it's features. Bad mistake. I guess you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is much cheaper on NewEgg

Pros: EVGA

Cons: None. 5 stars for EVGA, 2 stars for on this one.... read below.

Other Thoughts: Just ordered this. Paid 479. After I ordered this, i saw it on the regular newegg site for 399! I called customer service and they wouldn't credit me the difference becuase they are different accounts! Not good. Just FYI, buy it from not, it's 80$ cheaper there.

4 out of 5 eggsits ok

Pros: Beautiful board with lots of options.

Cons: It fought me for a while on startup, didnt want to recognize my 970. It kept setting it to 2.6Ghz. After a bios update and a few times wtih the clear CMOS and loading default it decided to start behaving.

Other Thoughts: Still getting to know this board and first impressions are good, but after fighting so hard just to get my 970 to stock, im a little hesitant to try an overclock.

2 out of 5 eggsCompromise is for losers.

Pros: - Big motherboard
- A lot of free slots
- Build quality
- Many feautures for overclocking
- EVGA (has or had a great name and good service)

Nowadays there are better options out there, however I consider this still to be the best X58 board out there.

Cons: - The NB was bend (I bend it back, didn't want to RMA)
- Outdated ROMS (AHCI, RAID, JMicron, etc.)
- USB issues (have to re-plug my mouse every now and then)
- EVGA (it seems support is getting worse, than 1 or 2 years ago)

On a sidenote; I noticed the bios updates went downhill, after a lot of people left the EVGA bios team (one of them being Shamino). Which is a great loss for EVGA imho.

Other Thoughts: One of the slogans of EVGA is "Compromise is for losers.", however they compromised a lot by using old ROMS for the bios, for example the Intel RAID ROM is very outdated (almost 2 years).

They are stating that they are working directly with Award, however there is still no update on the status, let alone a new bios with the latest Intel RAID ROM.

Normally I wouldn't mind, but the new Intel RAID ROM offer better performance and stability. Also my current SSD's (4x Mach Xtreme Technology DS Series) aren't recognised in RAID 0. Which renders them completely useless.

I am already thinking about getting a different brand motherboard, which does update their ROMS on frequent base.

EVGA used to be great, however lately they don't seem to care anymore about their customers. And we are feeling left out in the cold.

EVGA is starting to look like Abit and DFI. Both great companies at first, but went downhill afterwards... I really hope EVGA won't go that way as well...

5 out of 5 eggsSize does matter

Pros: This is a pretty awsome board. You can install up to 4 cards and have all of them run at 16x
I love the colors and the little pulsing EVGA logo even when the board is off.
Awsome control panel with LED readout. It just makes owning this board more fun!

Cons: It is very power hungry but that is to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Overall great board!

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA 4-way SLI

Pros: This thing is awesome
-Sturdy, feels likes a solid product
-Well made, comes with a simple manual and big sheet with all the parts and info
-Fits most graphic cards without hassle
-Solid buy, i personally love this mobo and give it 5 out of 5

Cons: not much here except the manual is for a three way mother board and not a four way, it still provides most information, but i personally think its a slight annoyance that a 4-way motherboard comes with a 3-way motherboard manual, also WATCH FOR THE SIZE! this thing is huge and WILL NOT fit in most cases, i suggest the COOLER MASTER HAF X case, its the cheapest case that will fit this mobo and most components

Other Thoughts: would like to see a manual specific to this motherboard

2 out of 5 eggspiece of poop!

Pros: has high recognition of memory modules. 4 way sli capability, that's about it.

Cons: Bought this for having 7 pci-e slots and to make use of my 980x cpu. When flashed with the 6 core bios update it recognized my cpu in bios as 0 ghz. In windows 7, it saw it as a 1.6ghz 6 core cpu, not a 3.33ghz one. And I made sure that the cpu wasn't faulty in other 6 core ready mb's. Had a rma setup with the egg but didn't have the funds within the 14 days of time to get it in. Lost a chunk of change because of it. Has deterred me from buying evga mb's ever again. I stick with asus and gigabyte as my brands now.

Other Thoughts: none.

Manufacturer Response:


Can you contact me directly at, there are no known issues with the Intel 980X (or 990X for that matter)
