Best board I've ever had

Pros: I've owned this board since early 2008 and have never had an issue with it. Intel Core 2 Duo running 8gb RAM and a recently added Samsung 850 Pro with NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti and it can still play games like a champ.

Cons: None

Overall Review: It's quite old now (2015) and will be building a new rig some time next year, but this board is still solid.

Still using it made it into a htpc

Pros: Very Stable Motherboard, I've owned it since 2008 running with a q9650. Last year I added two 550 gtx ti's ran them like a champ.

Cons: If I could put a 4th gen chip I wouldn't remove it. So no con's

Overall Review: My ram finally died out and I decided that it was time to upgrade to haswell. But I probably would of waited at least a few more months if the memory didn't die on it.

But Now I had the excuse to build another gaming rig and this board is getting new ram and being used as a htpc.

Great board I'm hoping my new board last this long. Great job evga

Fantastic Board

Pros: I have had this board since 2008, and it has always been a champ. To this day I run most games on very high settings with an SLI setup. I am only upgrading because I need to catch up with the times, it will be used as a backup gaming rig.

Cons: The only issue I ever had with this board the was BIOS chip coming unseated a couple times throughout its lifetime, just press it back in and it was fine. EVGA tech support was top notch helping me solve that issue when it came up.

Greatest Board I Ever Purchased

Pros: Purchased this board in 2008. I have had 0 problems and it still is running perfectly. I have owned many boards before and this is hands down the best. EVGA will forever be my board choice. Although discontinued, it continues to be an amazing board.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Hope EVGA quality is still this good.

Sad to see it go LOVE IT

Pros: Superb board never had one last as long. Purchased in 2008 and only now replacing it (2013). I ran an overclocked Q6600 8gigs ram and two Nvidia GTX 285s in SLi and even today I run games at max with great FPS. I am only replacing this build because I want to upgrade the processor. I will be keeping this build as a second gaming rig.

Never had a mobo last this long brovo EVGA!

Cons: lol

Still solid after four years

Pros: This board has never had a problem since the fall of 2008 when I bought it for my first computer build. It had excellent upgrade potential. I now run it with a Q8400, 2 x GTX560, and 8gigs of DDR2. I can honestly play most games at a very high setting!

Cons: It is a **** getting my ArticCooler7 snapped onto the board over the CPU, but maybe that's not the boards fault. It just seems awfully cramped right there.

Overall Review: Paid about $200 flat for this and never regretted it. I can only hope my next build ( black friday?!?), will have a board with this much longevity.

The best 775 board

Pros: Very stable with any overclocks i have tried. Power / restart buttons on the board were ahead of its time on this sort of board. The only 3 way sli board out at the time.

Cons: The northbridge heatsink / fan was not the greatest design ever.. You would end up roasting your top gpu with 150*f+ air. But, that is literally the only problem with this board.. And its not even a real problem.

Overall Review: 780i
C2Quad Q9550 @ 4.2Ghz for the past 3 years.
Corsair Dominator 6gb @ 1066Mhz.
3x Evga GTX 280's stock clocks.
WD green 2tb storage.
Ocz 128Gb ssd.
