This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UP4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Worked right out the box. Installed a 3960x with a Silver Arrow SB-e. Temps range at high 30s @ stock speed/voltages.
Running the samsung ddr3 1600s in quad channel @ 2133 cas10
Cons: Boots so fast that keyboard isnt recognized sometimes when I spam the delete button ;) lol using a mechanical ps/2 keyboard too.
Silver arrow sb-e blocked the first pcie slot completely.
Switching to eisberg when it releases. So becareful when your purchasing this board with a larger heatsink
Other Thoughts: no led debug
no power button
Pros: Okay, was skeptical of Patriot ram at first, but I got it at a huge rebate at my local MC so why not I bought it and tried it. Got it running @ 2133 10-11-10-26 at stock volts (1.65v) XMP. If you want my system specs there down below. Stable ram no bsods as of yet and 12+ hours of memtest stable. (luck of the draw, you never know when your going to get defective ram) Great color ram too, matches well with my motherboard.
Cons: I have a nh-d14, and it fits, but the bottom 120mm fan has to be raised a bit above the heatsink. Does not affect performance pretty much at all, but I enjoy my stuff lining up nice and neat.
Other Thoughts: Ram is pretty weighted.
2600k @ 4.8ghz/1.44v
z68 ud7 b3 board
rest really dont matter for mem oc'ing.
Pros: It cooks brown and white rice pretty well. Cleaning is easy. It's awesome got it on sale for$80.
Cons: Takes 2-3 hours cooking brown rice, but I knew that. After finishing rice the steam just drips all over your table/counter.
Other Thoughts: Buy it, but when its on saleREAD FULL REVIEW
