This review is from: ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Nicely designed board, a lot of connectivity, all the extra's you would find in more top of the line boards ! UEFI runs beautifully and can make any adjustment you want ! Throw in the on board Wi-Fi and you can make your Desktop a access point !!! AI Suite 3 works perfect and just an all around solid workstation or gaming board.
Cons: Only thing so far I do not like is the spacing of the Pcie slots for SLI, you must use the top slot then the bottom slot for 16x@ 16x , OK for cooling but second card is sitting on top of all the front panel connectors and the USB hubs, and you cannot see the boards LED readouts or access some of the buttons and switches.
Other Thoughts: Bought this after all my HORRIBLE issues with a Gigabyte X79-UP4 board. Got tired of arguing with NewEgg and Gigabyte so I bought this, wanted to purchase it elsewhere but could not find one at the time or for this price. My I7-4930K which would struggle at 4.2ghz with way to much voltage on other " now paperweight board " now runs at 4.6ghz with ease at 1.385 vcore and temps with my H100i at load are around 62c - 68c !!!! Wish this NEW version of the X79 Deluxe was available when I upgraded to the 4930, I would have been a Happy Camper a long time ago ! Still a shame that I have a $$$$$ motherboard sitting in a box and that I wasted so much time, effort and frustration with ! Live and learn I guess !!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Super quiet..... not to bright LED's ... 3 pin connection, works awesome with fan controllers ! Have 3 installed as exhaust in a small case and whisper quiet !!! Running at 1200rpm.
Cons: Nice fan shrouds...black with the blue LED light.... but they send them with silver mounting screws ... not a good match for most cases which are BLACK... thank goodness I had black ones laying around !!!!
