Summary: Two dimms and the ethernet port were broken. Board works great otherwise. Upgraded to a NIC card and moved the dimms around and its fine. Otherwise most impressive. The CPU heatsink was a cinch compared to most boards, very customizable and able to overclock.

Summary: required firmware update to even get it to boot. I've grown weary of broken English explanations and labels in bios. How is it that a company as big as ASUS cannot afford to hire an English speaking technical writer.
Summary: Ok this is Asus and I have never had a problem with these board, they are rock solid.. A few warnings though on THIS board.. It si really a dedicated gaming ONLY board. it has 4 graphic card slots and NOTHING ELSE, no pic, no pcie nothing.
Overclocks well, Somethings good, Somethings bad - My recommendations.

Summary: The LE verson of the P9x79 is the bottom of the ASUS P9X79 series and has some good features like having 8 DIMM slots to hold a total of 64 gigabytes of QUAD channel memory and 40 channels of PCIe bussing allowing multiple GPUs.
No Audio on 3.5 minijacks - Otherwise a good board.

Summary: Well, It aint a suprise. I've been reading reviews - before and after It got here and I said it too. "Oh an RMA wont happen to me." Well it did. The audio was DOA and I tried EVERYTHING to get it to work. New drivers, different speakers, etc.
Summary: Labeled as LGA 1155, when it is actually LGA 2011. The X79 chipset does not at all support LGA 1155 (Intel supported the LGA1155 with e.g. the P67 & Z68 chipsets), and supports only their newest desktop-processor platform.
