Summary: Short POST Time Nice BIOS No errors or bsod issues Worked exactly as I hoped it would out of the box. This board might be a bit more expensive than other 1155 boards but the stability and hassle free experience makes it worth it.
Summary: Using this with a 2600k. I bought it because I wasn't sure I wanted a dedicated GPU and wanted to be able to take advantage of DisplayPort connectivity and the CPU's HD3000 graphics. Everything has been working great (coming up on a week). Instruction manual is clear, BIOS is very full featured yet remains incredibly intuitive (full-fledged GUI is a nice touch). Very robust board at a great price.
Summary: This board has been one of the most popular miro-ATX Z68 units out there, for good reason. Installation was no problem and it has been perfectly stable since I first booted it up. I love the graphical BIOS and basic overclocking features available right from the start. Also, there are numerous fan headers (especially for micro-ATX) and the stock fan controls work quite nicely in my quiet build.
Summary: Pros: - UEFI - A lot of connectors - Z68 chipset and Lucid Virtu support - Easy overclock support in BIOS - USB 3.0 - Driver support is good Cons: - Placement of power connectors could be better - I wish they'd just ditched the legacy stuff like the PCI slot and the PATA connector Overall this is a very nice mATX board. Got all the connectors you can think of at the back. USB 3.0 support and got good number of fan connections.
Pros: Богатый набор самых разных разъемов, включая DDR3 Есть SATA3 Сразу четыре слота для DDR3, причем максимальный объем памяти может достигать 32 Гб (у меня 16, так что получилось даже с запасом). Наличие USB 3.0
Cons: Явно завышенная цена Так и не понял, зачем на современной материнке все еще присутствует FDD... Похоже, что этот допотопный интерфейс переживет многие более новые технологии :)
