Most Critical Review

Died after 60 days

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It's great when it works

Cons: When it doesn't it's a nightmare to deal with Asus. It's taken them 2 days to just check stock and send me an email detailing instructions on how to send this thing back. And by the way, you have to pay for return shipping of the board. I'm sure they'll reply publicly to this asking me to contact them, but the fact of the matter is I already have, 4 times, and their customer support is lackluster at best.

Overall Review: I know the board looks great on paper and even when you get it out of the box, but stick with another brand. The quality control on this thing just isn't great.

It's insane

ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It works! and let me tell you, it works really well. Unbelievably stable, cool, and full of features. The best X79 board you can buy, period. I have a 3930k and was using the Sabertooth X79 board for almost two years now. After dealing with Asus and replacing two boards, I had just about given up. It always had several continuous issues and my computer was NEVER stable. I replaced that horrible piece of junk with this Deluxe X79 today, all of my problems have disappeared. This is X79 version 2.0 and boy does it rock!

Cons: It's having a little trouble finding two of my drives, but I know it's something I'm doing. The board is fine.

Terrific!

Pros: Works on an Asus x79 Sabertooth, super fast!

Cons: none whatsoever!

Nightmare

EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI  FTW ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI FTW ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: When it works, it's great

Cons: American customer service 24/7, but they have low understanding of product. It's a nightmare to get working. I replaced every component in the computer and by some miraculous coincidence, I now have a working computer. I even RMAed the board and the second had the same issue. I do not recommend this board at all.
