EVGA X79 Classified - LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 XL ATX Motherboard (151-SE-E779-K3)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: XL-ATX !
Native support up to 2133 MHz!
Requires 2 Power connectors, and a PCI-E lane buff via molex.
5 PCI EXPRES LANES (1x16,2x16,3x8,4x8)
4 SATA3 2SATA6 RAID 0/1/5/10/JBOD
Triple BIOS!
8 Channel HD Audio + Optical !
EZ Voltage Read Points!
Onboard CPU Temp Monitor! (very handy i can see it from my comp chair)

Cons: Limited by 32GB Ram, but honestly, I don't know if I will even get to that point before next-gen chipset w/ USB3.1 and DDR4 Ram comes out.... I have 16 GB 2133 MHz ram and NO ISSUE!

So barley a con..
I guess no onboard Wi-Fi is a con, but this is an EVGA 1337 overclockers board. Dual NIC!

Other Thoughts: Really happy with this motherboard. Currently running with i7-4930k @ 4.4 GHz with 16GB(2x 8GB) 2133MHz CAS9 RAM, SLI EVGA 660 SC, 256 GB SAMSUNG PRO, CORSAIR HX1200i, 2x 3TB 7200RPM HDD
