UPDATING BIOS IS REQUIRED AND NOT EASY UNLESS YOU KNOW HOW

TWATripp "twatripp", Amazon
22 July 2015
  • Summary: BIOS update IS required before using the I5 processors. It is not straightforward and it took me several hours to figure it out. First - you can install the processor and it will boot to BIOS, but it will not install windows. Here's what to do.

  • Summary: Pros: Good feature set, good price point. A friend uses this as well and likes its performance. Cons: First motherboard was dead on arrival, it showed power on the power indicator, but never budged a fan or went to POST. I am awaiting a replacement.

Good

Gene, Amazon

  • Summary: It was ok, I had some problems in the beginning though. The audio wasn't working, but after tweaking the audio settings, I managed to fix it. The LED's are very helpful, when I was trying to boot the computer, it was easy to tell if It was powering or starting up.

  • Summary: Used one of these in my new system. Only issue I've had with it is the stock intel CPU fan wouldn't spin fast enough on startup, so I had to go into BIOS and lower the minimum fan speed.

  • Summary: Very stable motherboard so far. I have 2 Radeons R9 290 on this motherboard and a core i3, and it works very well. I was in a hurry to build a PC, but at this point, it makes more sense to buy a z97 motherboard, because of the support for the next processor that will come up later (devil's canyon...
  • Pros: Very good UEFI BIOS, 3 full size PCI-E slot
  • Cons: Z97 motherboards just came out, still have 2 old PCI slot

  • Summary: I'm really liking this motherboard. It has all the features I need and the included software is great. I am particularly impressed with the TurboV Evo and Fan Xpert 2 software. The TurboV Evo overclocked my cpu to 4.3 GHz at 1.200 volts.
  • Pros: Good features and performance.
  • Cons: I/O shield is flimsy., USB ports don't support charging devices when the computer is off.
