This review is from: ASUS X99-DELUXE LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Fully featured X99 enthusiast motherboard for a new memory standard and chipset.
M.2 is fully recognized and functional with 1305 EUFI BIOS.
The add-on fan header board is a really nice addition.
Asus's EUFI BIOS is a pleasure to work in compared to the Intel X58 I previously owned.
Asus does a good job of updating their EUFI BIOS & component QVL. BIOS was only outdated by one version.
The wifi looks cheap but it performs surprisingly very well.
Decent heat sinking on this board with plenty of on board fan headers.
Fabulous amount of sensory information for all kinds of monitoring. (voltage, fan speeds, and temps)
Cons: I don't care for the M.2 slots vertical fastener type, the designers could have come up with a better way to fasten the M.2 drive to the vertical piece.
Other Thoughts: *Newegg's tight and overly protective payment policy has been forcing some customers away, like those who's shipping addresses differ frequently from the billing address.
*I'm not entirely doubtful that many of the boards that are purchased new are having issues and that those folks putting them together are not incompetent builders.
Some of these boards are going out bad.
*The extra fan header board only comes with the Deluxe series and no other boards. It cannot be purchased anywhere even from Asus. (that is just plain wrong)
*To those who whine about non verified purchased reviewer: get over it and stop crying about something that doesn't concern you.
ASUS X99 Deluxe, Core i7-5960X, Corsair Hydro H100i, Plextor M6e 256GB M.2 SSD, Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum 32GB DDR4@2666, W8.1 64 bit,
EVGA GTX980, Seasonic PLATINUM-1000W PSU, MountainMods U2-UFO Case, and 7 other internal drives.
Pros: See Other
Cons: See Other
Other Thoughts: This board posted long enough to update EUFI BIOS successfully then would no longer POST and
therefore had no choice but to Return. I was unable to rectify whatever issue this board was having.
CPU diagnostic LED would remain lit up on the board with several failed attempts to reorient heat sink.
I have a backup board that I also purchased at the same time, it is the ASUSX99 Deluxe. All components are cross
compatible with each other's ASUS QV listing and are currently working without issue.
I love the looks and features purportedly built into this board and will edit my review once I can get a working product.
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
Pros: handle everything my Windows 7 OS did.
Far superior to XP, in every way.
It's an improvement over Windows 8.
Cons: Split OS still confuse some, mostly dummies though.
Same with the lack of an "old fashion" start menu.
Other Thoughts: Disregard that last user's comments.READ FULL REVIEW
