1 out of 5 eggs A Complete Disgrace To The EVGA Name 08/09/2013

This review is from: EVGA X79 SLI 132-SE-E775-K2 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: NONE, since I can't even get past the BIOS splash screen.

Cons: The worst part about this board, is that it is NOT compatible with the GTX 7xx line of graphics cards. When I tried to start my computer for the first time, I got a B4 error. Upon research on EVGA's forums, I found that this is because the board is NOT compatible with my GTX 780 card. I have to buy an older card, start up the computer, then flash the BIOS, and then I can install my GTX 780. This is a complete outrage, and a disgrace to the PC community. If I bought this board AFTER the GTX 780 came out, there should have been a warning in the product description.

Secondly, the RAM slots are located too close to the CPU socket, causing intereference between the RAM cooling fins, and the CPU cooler. I had to remove the cooling fins from two of my RAM cards. Luckily, the CPU cooler is blowing cold air directly onto them.

Third, it doesn not have a USB 3.0 internal plug, therefore I am unable to connect my case's USB 3.0 to the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed in EVGA, and am utterly disgusted that they did not feel the need to warm their customers that the GTX 7xx series cards are not compatible.

ASUS ENGTX570/2DI/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: NVIDIA just came out with new drivers, as of June 1st. DO NOT install anything that comes with this card. I just doubled my previous benchmark with the new drivers, which actually un-installed all of ASUS' malware before the new drivers were installed. Everything runs 2-5x as fast. I went from 20FPS on Black Ops, to about 80FPS with everything on full quality at 720p.

Cons: ASUS forces their drivers and software onto you. Luckily, NVIDIA's new drivers counteract that!

Other Thoughts: GREAT CARD! The 3D is amazing! Video Games, Movies, Etc...
