Building a 3DCAD Workstation

John H., Newegg
28 October 2012
  • Pros: For a serious Cad workstation this board is hard to beat. Supports 4 channel ECC unbuffered Ram (I used 32gig 1600 4X8gig kit), Xeon E5 processors, and the latest in PCIe3x16 Graphics. See below for system details.
  • Cons: Took a while to find everything I needed, such as 8gig ECC unbuffered SDRAM Dimm's and a mid tower case to accomodate the CEB form factor of this board, but I finally got it all together and listed details below. Hope this helps.

Second motherboard works fine

Samuel F., Newegg
9 March 2012
  • Pros: Unlike my previous experience, the second motherboard worked perfectly from the first time I booted it up. (See my review from 2/24/12.) I have a Gen. 3 graphics card, and it is running just fine at Gen. 3 speeds with the Core i7 3930K CPU (exact same one that I had put on the nonworking motherboard). I like the fact that I can put two graphics cards, and also put in a SSD on a x4 PCIe slot without slowing down either graphics card.
  • Cons: So far, our (limited) experience with this motherboard indicates a 50% failure rate - the first one was DOA - so this points to a quality issue on ASUS' part.

Amazing Motherboard.

David W., Newegg
15 January 2012
  • Pros: Excellent fan header layout. LOTS of fan headers.
  • Cons: The audio header is in the middle back of the MB and not on the perimeter like every other header. Will require a fairly long case jack cable to snake through all the components to connect to it.

Great board.

James G., Newegg
7 January 2012
  • Pros: Board worked good from first boot. Intel NICs are a plus, lots of USB 2 ports, great for multi-GPU which I may go when Nvidia 600 series arrives. Board in general, and drivers in Win 7 x64 are stable. Board is good for fun and business.
  • Cons: One con, is that I can't get my fan (Gelid nanoflux) on my H80 to run at less than 1200 RPM on Chassis fan controller #1. Even if I set it to 600 or 500 RPM in bios, it stays at 1200 RPM and is kinda noisy, but tolerable. I've seen other people with this problem so it's probably a bios issue. Another thing, which isn't much of a con, is that it came with an old bios (402 - latest is 802), but that's easily fixed.

Working great in Kubuntu (Linux)

Amit P., Newegg
3 January 2012
  • Pros: The foundation for my super linux build. Just put it together right after xmas and all components worked right out of the box installing Kubuntu 11.10 64 bit. No hassles, no fuss! Awesome. See build list below... (have not overclocked yet)
  • Cons: Not really a con, but had to wait out the supply shortage, but made sure I picked one up as soon as Newegg had it up again.

  • Excerpt: По личному опыту - лучшая материнская плата от ASUS под сокет 2011, как для серьезной работы, так и для игр. Утверждаю это несмотря на то, что у первого экземпляра этой модели "отвалился" SATA контроллер от Marvel
  • Pros: Главные (для меня) преимущества в сравнении с "P9X79 Deluxe" и "P9X79 E-WS" - более быстрая, экономичная и на редкость "прямая" материнка. В данной модели используются аппаратные сетевые контроллеры от Intel, поэтому то, что сразу бросается в глаза при работе в интернет - это скорость. Кроме того у матери хороший разгонный потенциал.
  • Cons: Из за наличия 6-и слотов PCI Express и большого количества распаянных компонентов, ASUS пришлось немного увеличить размер платы в ширину, выполнив ее в формате SSI CEB (305 x 267 мм) В результате на плате стало несколько тесновато. В частности при установке видеокарты в ближний к процессорному сокету PCI-e слот, и использовании кулера Noctua NH-D14, скобы крепления вентиляторов касались платы видеокарты. Проблема решилась за 5 мин. отгибанием плоскогубцами скоб вентил...
