Pros: This board is amazing for enthusiasts that like to OC. supports top of the line ram and i7. I'm a huge gamer and this board is amazing. I recommend this to anyone.
i7 4930k @ 4.5ghz
Evga x79 dark
Extreme water Cool 2.0
16gb Kingston hyper x quad channel @ 2400
Nvidia GTX 680 OC
Samsung 240 120gb
Cons: I upgraded my PSU from 800w to to Evga Supernova 1300w G2. As soon as I Booted the pc up, instant smoke from the connect to the board. I checked all connections and they were good so I un plugged them all and plugged them back in. I knew I shouldn't try again but I did. Instant smoke again. And now I see where it was burning. Mobo is dead and waiting for RMA from evga. Not sure if this was a fault board, or psu. Would give 5star if it didn't blow.
Other Thoughts: If my next board blows I won't buy another from evga.READ FULL REVIEW
