1 out of 5 eggs Had this board for over 5 months 03/30/2013

This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Supports 64GB
Relatively easy to set up
I have it working with the GTX 690 so not having the video card issues that many on this board are having.

Cons:

Nothing but blue screens every 24 hours using the on-board Intel RAID with the RSTe drivers on SSD.
Used the server version of the RAID driver and it works better, but get the occasional blue screen still. Loose TRIM support on those.
Windows 8 drivers where spotty well into the MS release of Win 8. You would think Intel would have seen that OS coming.
No eSATA port
Nothing but issues with the on board SATA ports when using SSD's.

Other Thoughts:

All said, I would have taken my chances with another board knowing what I know now about this board.
