This review is from: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Running Linux with a e5 2665 for a year with 64GB RAM. Processing Intel Fortran routines continuously. For a year the system has been restarted 7 times. Great board. I will rewrite another detailed review.
Other Thoughts: Don't know what the other reviewers wining about! Just get the right CPU and a homogeneous set of RAM and you should be done.
Great workstation board for mathematical processing. Running Fedora 20 along Intel Fortran iFort v11, and Intel XE v13. Wonderful board. 9 STARS well deserved.
Pros: Shame they are not reproducing this board anymore! I was lucky to grab the last two open boxes.
Unique board with floppy and IDE connectors for LGA 1155 on which i5 3570k was tested and worked great. The i7 3770 is what I am using for direct vt-d passthrough.
Cons: They won't be producing this anymore. It is just sad.
Critics about headers for the floppy and IDE should be avoided, and those who do not like having them, simply do not use them.
Other Thoughts: The current generation is using computer as a media streamer or a gaming processor. However, there are tons of intelligent programs written for decades that computer scientist seek to retrieve and execute on current architecture. These programs might be tight to the floppy or IDE, and this board is ideal to revive these programs, eg McClelland's 1986 parallel distributed processing.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I paid $29 for this pair on 11/2012 and gave it 5 eggs. A year later, they are charging more than x3 the price for these Kingston KHX16C9B1RK2/8 !!!!
Cons: They were $29 for the pair, now $92. Too expensive.
Other Thoughts: Basically they were making profit when selling it at $29 back in 2012. What Kingston is thinking to jack the price that high! What is this material that is essential to build these components that tripled the price? or is it just new patented algorithms for enhancement? there is none.
0 eggs for ripping off the consumer.
