Good Board. 06/11/2014
Looks good, and gives me very few issues. Fires up very fast, and the layout is pretty nice. I bought this to replace an Asus Z77 MB that i had issues with. I am not sure which one i like better at this point. I think i like the Asus Bios better (see negative comment).
I cannot get the fan setting to stay in the Control Center. I setting the smart fan controls and then everything is great, but i shut down and they go back to the bio set speeds. Now I may not be a computer genius but should i have to be to get this to work? I say it is worth an egg. Also, from a design perspective the yellow color and text on the heatsinks is unattractive on an otherwise very well thought out board. I may go back to Asus next time, but I find this board does not have all the extra hype that i don't care about.
The USB3.0 jack does not align well in the Corsair 550D. The case has a bulge that pushes the cable head outward. I have not had issues with it though, just looks like it is coming out. That is just the case's problem. I am trading up to a Corsair Air 540.
