This review is from: ASUS X99-DELUXE/U3.1 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The ASUS X99/U3.1 is a very robust motherboard. The number of SATA ports and USB ports provides more than sufficient connections for many devices. The BIOS settings and options are well beyond that are provided with the most basic motherboards.
Cons: The BIOS post time is extremely slow at 15 seconds. I turned off every usable BIOS option that I could and removed every extra device in an attempt to reduce the post time but was unsuccessful. Additionally, some of the BIOS version that I had tested were not stable. I have a ticket open with ASUS.
Other Thoughts: I would have given this motherboard a top rating but the BIOS post time is poor considering the overall cost to build the X99 platform. If ASUS and bring the post time down to 5-7 seconds then I will revisit my comments.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel BOXDZ77RE75K LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Fully featured - money back if not satisfied.
Cons: Terrible technical support. The first line support area only knows: clear the CMOS or reflash the bios. The bios is full of bugs and would not retain settings. RMA'd the first board back to Intel and the second board was not any better.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These dimms are stable at 1366 in the Intel DZ77RE-75K motherboard.
Cons: These dimms are not stable at either 1600 or 1866.
Not recommended if you want to run at these speeds.
Other Thoughts: I paid a premium price for thses dimm and I may have to RMA these dimms as they are not performing up to the specifications.READ FULL REVIEW
