1 out of 5 eggs No POST possible damage to CPU 08/03/2012

This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SI LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Lots of features and a decent layout for what it is worth. The price isn't to horrible and I like the 7 segment BIOS code display on the board.

Cons: DOA. After connecting everything and turning it on, I see a CPU Overheat light on the board. No video, POST, BIOS beeps or anything. Just the CPU Overheat alarm which makes me turn the computer off immediately. Deciding to check the CPU to make sure it is seated correctly, discover it is burning hot. It was seated correctly but now I get nothing from the board anymore. CPU doesn't heat up either. Have to RMA to the board to Intel because it is now outside 30 days.

So now after I get my Motherboard back, I may have to replace the Processor as well (I7 3930k). If you can avoid it, do not get this board. Way to many complaints about DOA to ignore. I wish I wouldn't have ignored all the warnings.

Other Thoughts: Overall I have high hopes for this board IF I can get a working one.
