Summary: If there are any competing motherboard manufacturer reps reading this highly critical review, please feel free to reply to this review and extol the virtues of your warranty service. As I said before my company purchases over 1000 motherboards a year for our various systems and server builds.
Pros: Great boards when they work. Good features for price. See below for warnings about WARRANTY service, should you end up getting a bad board.
Cons: Warranty support...or lack thereof. I'm a systems and server builder for an IT company in my local area. My company purchases over 1000 motherboards a year and its part of my job to select the components that we use in our builds. Since INTEL stopped making consumer desktop boards, I was forced t...
Cons: Product does not boot up with a I5-4590T and suggested solution is to upgrade bios to newest version. Kind of interesting how this is suppose to be done if the board doesn't boot up to even start the update process So indication from newegg that this combination can't be started up without prior ...
Summary: I've ordered this board twice, the first one was DOA and had to be RMA. The second one was working great for a day, but now the LED on the board is blinking and computer won't start. Have to spend $30+ in RMA shipping and wait weeks to finally get my computer running
Summary: The second image on newegg is an accurate depiction of this motherboard. Used this in a high power mini itx build (i7 4790 + r9 280x). It was easier to build than the last time I built one, so the layout is nicer.
Pros: Good layout Works correctly Good feature set
Cons: No wifi i guess? Some people may care about this
Summary: This is a multi-use home server machine. "Idle" is 2 empty Minecraft servers and a rather busy seedbox. Other services running include FTP, RDP, WINS, Active Directory with file and media shares.
Pros: Solid board, connections and soldering look good, no flex, built in raid support is reliable (2 Seagate 3TB drives in RAID1) and easy to setup. The 6 SATA ports come in super handy since its a server setup.
Cons: On the bottom side of one RAM slot you can tell the squared off edge was snapped. Purely cosmetic but it's a piece towards the middle of the board... puzzles me how it got there. -1 Egg
