Good, with right components

abirdie4me, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: The performance is fantastic,once I had my components installed I was able to get my i3770k stable at 4.6ghz on the first try using mostly default bios settings. However, I use a Noctua nh-D14 cooler and my R280x video card in the first pci-e lane sits very close to the edge of the cooler (so much so that I have to use a thin ruler to depress the release switch to remove the video card).

Great Board with many features and great for the overckocking enthusiast, but be aware of ram compatibility....

JOSE DANGOND JESURUM, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: As I said Great Board with many features and overclocks like a dream, but purchased this along 32 gb 8x4 corsair dominator LP ram and had nightmares with a dreaded code 20 and code 55 with the dram red light on.... My board sometimes would post and sometimes it wouldn't, Im not 100% sure its a compatibility issue but I came to the hypothesis by searching google for the codes and seeing the common denominator...

Almost excellent

BytesMage, Amazon

  • Summary: Love the board. Very easy to OC. Lots of options in the UEFI BIOS. Lots of options on what you want to do with this board. My one dislike is the AsMedia controller. There are no RAID options so only RAID with Intel. Yes limitation of Intel spec. But other boards got around this and from ASUS too. So why not here? Afterall this IS an Extreme. I so wanted SSD RAID 0 onto Intel 6gb and HDD 6GB RAID on Asmedia. Still fabulous board. Worth the money.

5GHz wifi drops when Thunderbolt is being used

  • Summary: This motherboard does have one issue and that is when Thunderbolt is in used the wireless 5GHz band will completely drop. As soon as you remove the thunderbolt cable 5GHz works.

Good But small

Robert Lewis Dixon, Amazon
3 March 2013
  • Summary: Nice motherboard, however: It is quite small compared to some of the others making fitting aftermarket air cooler impossible as the heat sink (by the cpu slot) interferes with the docking mechanism only allowing the stock cooling air cooler to be fitted. Only a main concern if overclocking is the goal, Liquid cooling most likely won't have the same problem. Also fitting the wireless adapter took longer than normal due to its incredibly small attaching leads.

Brilliant

R. BEARD, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: This motherboard has it all, Bluetooth, wifi, thunderbolt, usb3..... Very easy to overclock! My only criticism is that the additional 4 sata3 ports on the separate marvel chip cannot be used for raid, limiting you to 2 sata3 and 2 sata2 ports run by the the intel chipset for raid. With SSD's and max performance that really leaves you with just the 2 intel sata3 ports to play with.

Excellente CM

  • Summary: Superbe carte mère, très complète (peut-etre même un peu trop, le prix est un peu elevé), bon emballage et packaging. Les composants sont de qualités.
