This review is from: ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great Features on X79 Chipset. Futureproofed for next couple years. Includes Wifi AC. Easy to set up. Great looking MB.
Cons: Not enough native SATA III ports for HDs but that's the natures of the X79. Had to disable legacy USB in BIOS to get the board to start up without blowing a code on the MB LED readout on boot up.
Other Thoughts: So far so good. First build in several years. Have always owned an ASUS MB. Hasn't disappointed yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very solid. Looks great. Relatively quiet.
Cons: The way the fans are mounted in the picture, the fan blades tend to sag downwards and the blades were actually hitting my CPU power cable/clip and hindering the blades from spinning. Had to flip them around and have fan house guards up against the clip so it wouldn't block it from spinning. So far so good. Definitely a tight fit even in my Cooler Master Storm Trooper.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Pricing is perfect for what I need. So far it's blasted through whatever I've given it without a hiccup. Happy with my purchase of this processor. Coming a long way from my last desktop CPU AMD K8 processor. Perfect paring with my Coolermaster Nepton 280 L.
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: Intel Core i7 4820K Ivy Bridge-E
