BIOSTAR TPOWER X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Intel X79
  • Core i7 (LGA2011)
  • DDR3 1066/1333/1600/1866 (O.C)/ 2133 (O.C)/ 2400 (O.C)

Pros:

Price, Features, and Rock Solid. Everything installed really easy and worked on the first try. Tons of USB.

Cons:

3 pin fan headers, bios can get 'clunky', SATA Cables, lack of 'AWE' factor.

A Supermicro, some ASUS, Tyan and a few others can generally blow this board away in s#xiness, fan conrtrol, and connector quality.

Other Thoughts:

This was a tough review because I don't want to discourage purchase by giving it four stars, but I don't think it is truly a '5' star over the top board.

I operate an IT business and have easily built over 100 computers. I chose this board for my personal workstation because of the X79 chipset, price, and no talk of RMA returns or compatibility hassles in the reviews. I have had no problems with this board and it absolutely screams. I upgraded from an Intel P35 chipset with a Q6600 processor. I paired this board with an i7-3820 and 4x4GB of Ripjaw PC17000 memory and had no troubles at all. It was definitely a worthy performance upgrade and I'm happy.

I installed an external PWM fan controller based off the (1)4pin CPU fan header to reduce the noise, because I'm VERY picky about noise. I would recommend this board to clients and friends.
