3 out of 5 eggs Fine until it crashes 12/04/2012

This review is from: Intel BOXDX79SI LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It runs extremely well, except for one large thing, which I will get to later. I have had no problems with it and found setting it up easy to navigate through. Other than the one main con, I find this board fine to use.

Cons: Every once in awhile, while I am watching a video or playing a game, the board will randomly crash. I have checked my video card and It is not that. It is the board. It is extremely frustrating to hold down the power button for 10 seconds, wait a few seconds, and then restart my whole computer while in the middle of a game or a movie, etc.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend avoiding this board, at basically all costs. Intel has been of no help at all, probably the worst customer support I have ever dealt with. As far as overheating, I only had one problem with that, but upgraded my fan and that flew away instantly.

Over all the board is fine, if you can deal with it crashing every so often.
