This review is from: NZXT APERTURE M 5.25 Bay Multi-Media Mesh Style Card Reader w. Dual USB 3.0

Pros: Seamless integration into my HAF 922. Installed on DX79SI board. I like having 2 usb3 ports up front. Reads media perfectly.

Cons: None

Pros: Installed on DX79SI board. Works as advertised on 1600 XMP. Solid performance.

Cons: Price, but you get what you pay for...

Pros: Has the feature set that I wanted without over doing it. F7 bios update is handy. Board is well laid out. This was a zero hassle build for me and has so far proven to be reliable and glitch free. As with any build, research i.e. download the user manual and tech sheet and become well versed in them before building ANY system.

Cons: More of a software/driver con - Intel's RSTe and Intel's SSD toolbox don't play well together yet. This is only an issue if you are using an Intel SSD and want full toolbox capability while running RAID with RSTe. If you're not running RAID and want full featured toolbox, then don't bother with RSTe until they offer a new iteration. AFAIK this applies to all the X79 boards.

Other Thoughts: I am not a brand snob. My past performance builds included boards from Abit, Gigabyte and Asus - the last being the P6X58D. The DX79SI has been the most pleasant experience so far. BUT, this board is not a tweakers wet dream. If your goal is to cause a brown-out in your neighborhood and a torched CPU, you'll be disappointed with this board. If, however, you're satisfied with simple, sensible, reliable OC'ing and require a consistently stable foundation to your build - this is it IMO.
