2 out of 5 eggs Continuation of previous review 01/15/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Lots of connectivity and performs well

Cons:

In my last review I commented on the lack of support you will receive if you purchase this board. After writing the review, Newegg sent me an email with the support number for Gigabyte. Thank you Gigabyte!

The only way you can get the support number is to write a negative review! I called support and explained the issue with the screen saver and the NIC card when overclocked. They promptly sent me a link to the newest beta version of the BIOS (F5b). The BIOS upgrade corrected the screen saver issue but it did not fix the NIC speed issue. Subsequent correspondence with tech support follows "If there are issue without any overclocking being applied we can have our
team look into it however once any overclocking is being applied results cannot
be guarantee."

The Gigabyte support # is 16268549338

Other Thoughts:

Don't buy this board if you think overclocking is going to make your computer faster. It is already faster than you are at the default settings!

Gigabyte should stop advertising the overclocking feature if they aren't going to support even the most basic overclocking options in EasyTune6.
