Pros: I added this to a custom server I built, Numerous features, fast and reliable. The only thing I plan on upgrading on this server any time soon is replacing SATA with SSDs so this motherboard will be used for another couple years.
Summary: Basically a sound board although The PCIex slots for SLI are 1 and 4 not the preferred one and 3 and the bottom external USB connectors and support for switches are covered by the second GPU requiring special bent connectors on any double wide GPU. All boards are becoming unreliable.
Pros: Supports Ivy Bridge, Multitude of sata 6, usb3, built in wifi plenty of ram slots.
Cons: Bios not stable latest 701 bios offers greater stability but throttles CPU by far to much unless puty into Asus optimal performance mode. Then wont go into sleep mode automatically.
Summary: The ASUS P9X79 DELUXE is a cool board with a lot of features. I've put together several CAD stations using this model. But, the last one (not purchased at Amazon as they were out of stock) has been a disaster. A memory slot is bad and will not recognize any module placed in it.
Summary: Wow, it took a few sellers, and multiple price changes, RMAs, etc to get the proper board I was looking for. I eventually had to buy it off of a different site because I was done playing with Amazon's sellers.
Customer Support is 100 times worst than the product...

Summary: My Bluetooth and WiFi module is not functioning as it is designed but realized that the ASUS Customer support is the worst thing you can have in this world. After opening the case, they should have sent me the forms for XShip (meaning they send me the replacement motherboard and I will send mine...
Summary: I really like this board. I have never been upset with an ASUS purchase. They have great tutorials online and really helped me get ready to build/overclock my first PC! I am glad I picked this board for the 2011 socket support and the extra features.
Pros: I really like this board. The price was a little more than others, but the built in wifi and bluetooth are what made the decision for me. That feature is really awesome and I didn't find many other boards that had that as features. Has worked great for me with overclocking and recognizing all my ...
Cons: This is a pricey board, and I think at the time of this review it is maybe getting replaced with a newer model. I have seen other reviews that reported issues but I haven't had any. But pricey and get a little tricky getting everything in place especially with the wifi and bluetooth modules
Cons: There appears to be a ghost in the machine. I am not at nob when it comes to customizing PCs, but this hunk of junk causes one to reevaluate life's choices. Like buying this board was the worst mistake I ever made. Loaded everything and (without OCing a thing) I would start a media conversion, wa...
Summary: This is my second asus board (i loved my first one - it ran great!), and i typically love asus products. But to be honest, i was planning on buying an ASUS Titan video card and now i am having second thoughts. I hope the ASUS team can RMA my product quickly (even though they ship ground!
Pros: Lots of USB slots, great specs, 3 x pcix slots, USB BIOS flash update tool is easy to use.
Cons: couplie issues - i purchased this board because it is spec'ed to be able to do use DDR3 1866 Mhz ram without being overclocked. I went out of my way and spent $100 more for vendor approved ram off of the mobos website (Corsair Dominator 32 gb 1866). When i booted the system, ram defaulted at 1333...
Summary: The only issue I've had with this board in over a month is the post I mentioned above, but again the BIOS update fixed that minor issue. Other than that, this motherboard has exceeded my expectations. Using an i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E and I've yet to have any issues at all.
Pros: -Fast -Reliable -Not exceedingly expensive, considering what you get. -It's Asus, I've yet to have a truly bad experience with their tech.
Cons: -Had a minor issue with posting during the first week where I would have to turn it off then power it up again, but an update in BIOS fixed the issue. (took me a week to find my way around a not-factory-installed OS...)
