ASUS P9X79-E WS LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI CEB Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Why negative reviews? 08/12/2014

This review is from: ASUS P9X79-E WS LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 SSI CEB Intel Motherboard

Pros: 1) Intuitive layout
2) Easy setup
3) Dual Intel I210 LAN ports--server grade make and model
4) 32-64 GB of RAM capable--using 32GB DDR3 1200-CL9
5) 7 Expansions/PCIe slots
6) Stable
7) Easy to overclock--even though it's a workstation board
8) Runs cool even when OC'ed

There's so much more, but the ability to Flash the BIOS externally was a life saver on the initial build.

Cons: 1) Marvell caching
2) Only 1 true USB 2.0 header

Other Thoughts: To ensure your PCIe slot is running at 3.0, simply go into the BIOS-->Advanced menu-->System Agent Configuration and select the slot(s) of your video card(s) and select "GEN3"...which is 3.0. Also, my 2nd Generation i7 [3930K] is cable of running PCIe 3.0. I have 2 x GTX680's w/ 4GB in SLI and have had no problems.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256D/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, stable, and cool...all the things you want in any system.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got a 512GB for main system and put this in my HTPC...glad I did. With this and 16GB of G.Skill 1333 at CL7, its fast and cool...which is great since it sits in a closet.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC512B/WW 2.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This thing has been working 24/7 for a year now and I've had no problems. Overall: it's faster than spinners in a RAID; quiet, and very reliable.

Cons: Price has jumped over the last year; other than that, no complaints here.

Other Thoughts: I'm so glad I bought this when it was affordable. This size holds ALL my software, with several large spinners in various RAID arrays for libraries, scratch for Adobe CS6, backups, media. I've never had a problem with SSD since its installation.
