GIGABYTE G1.ASSASSIN2 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything this board offers "seems" nice

Cons: I bought this board in the beginning of October. It is now Dec 1st. After trial and error testing all other parts and sending them back to newegg, I finally narrowed it down to the motherboard. This brought me into November. I sent the board to Gigabyte for RMA and they never told me what was wrong with it or what they fixed, just simply sent it back a round a week ago. I tried calling customer service and the guy on the phone from Gigabyte told me it was just being repaired and that was all he knew. So here I am December first and I still do not have a new computer built.

I have even tried running the board with nothing installed, no processor ram or video card, just power to the board, the PSU turns on and immediately kicks off. The same results I get with all the components connected. Like I said I know its not the PSU as it had been RMA'd and I've even tried a different PSU. Same thing.

Other Thoughts: I'm running the intel i7-3960x extreme a evga 690 and 32gb of ram off a 1300w PSU.
It's sad because I've ALWAYS used Gigabyte boards in my builds or builds for other people. I've been recommending Gigabyte boards since I first used them in my builds in 2002. Now I've already RMA'd the board once. I'm guessing I will just have to look for a new Motherboard :(

Thermaltake SpinQ Performance Series cooler with ultra-lightweight aluminum and six heatpipes CL-P0466 CPU Cooler
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Well it is one of the few CPU coolers that i felt worth giving a chance to. It is silent.

Cons: This thing makes EVERYTHING hot. My Core i7 920 in a Gigabyte ex58-ud5 motherboard idles at around 40-55 degrees C. This is with the side panel of my NZXT Lexa case off because it was over heating and wouldn't boot up. The fan is rheostat controlled and only give an option for it to be controlled from inside the case with the small connector. I had to mod an older thermaltake bay drive rheostat knob and wire it in place of the other one. The fan only spins at about 1550 RPM give or take.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what this needs but it's not working for me. I am looking into water cooling my Core i7
