Intel BOXDZ77GA70K LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Once past awful bios bugs and undoing the Raid1 setup
board is ok except for usb3-not totally fixed with bios 0059
Fast when finally operative (no OC) note I said operatIVE, not operatIONALl

Cons: Came from Newegg with bios 0027-hopeless !! only way I could update it was to load DEFAULT settings then re-start & use F7 flash update method to 0059 from usb 2 thumb drive
Load W7 Ult 64, run Intel chipset etc, usb3 and W7 update and create Raid1 Massive Garp!! Finally destroyed Raid re-flashed
bios(didn't help) and been fussin ever since-seems reasonably stable now?? Almost afraid to re-install Raid software
USB-3 is better with latest software update but still some flakey stuff

Other Thoughts: Won't handle an additional sata controller card (int 13 prob??)
Don't like Marvell on board-nor on D975xbx2 nor Dx58SO-never used on them Forced to use it on this board so adaptec 6405 is useless I don't overclock so can't comment about that
Intel bios expertise seems to be regressing Used to be rock solid on d865PERLK &D975xbx2, less so on DX58so and
simply horrid on this one

5 out of 5 eggs Update to 10/16/2010 review 06/07/2011

This review is from: Antec DF-85 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Still excellent-still Really like this case !! use top 2.5 sata for monthly win7 image backup on both systems-see other thoughts-removeable disk layout & filter system have kept me from opening up except to change out cards & I live in DUSTY Eastern NV

Cons: do have 1 front usb-2 jack problem- too trivial to worry
about-2 ea usb-2 & 1 usb-3 work & that's enuf for my needs

Other Thoughts: Like it so well I got DF-35 (at Newegg) for my wife's Badaxe2 & E6600 6 weeks ago-replaced Antec P180 that must be serial #2 (one of VERY first) lowered her temps by 3-5 degrees C-took her top bay cover ornaments off 'cause she didn't like them-it is easy!!

5 out of 5 eggs Lots of GOOD plastic-some steel 10/16/2010

This review is from: Antec DF-85 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Quiet-replaces Pc-P80-which still houses my Badaxe2
Air cooling is superb-I'm not overclocker i7 920 cores running <100 F as I type this-not over 110F yet
Graphics card is 90F currently-side fan works well & keeps Adaptec 2405 RAID cool-THEY run really HOT!
Can open one front door to access & still have 2 fans cooling- Disk Swap is a breeze-

Cons: Hardest part was NEATLY hooking up all fans-Antec 750w p/s & not enuf 4pin molex-
May have front USB 2.0 problem-too busy installing & updating software to troubleshoot that yet

Other Thoughts: also got SIIG JU-P20512-S1-1 INTERNAL USB 3.0 port-makes front usb 3.o install a LOT neater!!
Either of 2 sata Samsung DVD burners will fit in top bay without problem
May paint window black or see if Antec will make a windowless door
Have 2 Antec P180, 1 P182 ,1 Sonata 3-all in use by family-All have BadAxe2 Mobo & E6600-zero complaints
All purchased at Newegg
