This review is from: Intel BOXDZ77SL50K LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Nothing, complete junk. If I could give it 0 eggs, I would.
Cons: The mother of all failed bios updates. I stripped this thing down to bare bones and it still failed the update. I then found that I had to do it thru windows, then it worked (without the nvidia card installed). I then reinstalled the video card and bam, no boot, nothing again. Removed the video card, but was unable to revive the board. Absolute junk. Never in my years of building pc's have I ever seen such garbage... Just check the list of bios revisions, they tell the story... Stay away.
Other Thoughts: If I rma this thing, I'll still end up with junk, so I guess I'll have to eat this... My fault I guess. As soon as I googled these problems I found that most people that do not want to use the intel video, like myself, had serious issues. While it did run, performance was underwhelming...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet, fast, quiet... I can barely hear this thing when it's under a load. Tested with MSI Afterburner and Kombustor and max temp was 56c after about a 1/2 hr. Idle temp is normally around 29c.
Cons: None, except I should have ordered 2 when they were on sale.
Other Thoughts: My old card was an o/c GTX570 which ran hot and loud. Then add in the squealing noise that a certain brand is known for, and I was just sick of it. Now all is good. This card benches a little quicker overall than the old 570 which is a plus.READ FULL REVIEW
