Intel BOXDX79TO LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Intel X79
  • Core i7 (LGA2011)
  • DDR3 2400 (OC)/2133 (OC)/1866 (OC)/1600/1333/1066

Pros:

Excellent price comparatively. Solid performance.

Cons:

CPU Voltage Regulator #1 temperature was constantly pegged at -128 Celsius. I'm certainly not using nitrogen cooling. Back of board looked like it had been handled while the PCB was still wet, finger prints and weird swirls that were dried into the PCB. (Chinese manufacturing at FOXCONN, Must have been near the end of this guys shift). CPU Voltage regulators do not have any type of cooling system. (EG: heat sink or fan) they are designed to be cooled by blow by exhaust from your CPU cooler, which didn't work for me as the heat sink I had blew the wrong way.

No internal USB 3 header.

Other Thoughts:

I decided to RMA this, and get the Intel DX79SR which has two more SATA 3 ports, a second 1GB NIC onboard, and an internal USB 3 header, as well as a heatsink on the CPU Voltage regulators.
