Pros: Great mobo I had it for 2 years and the setup was easy and worked like a charm. Even has a new and old gen slot for GPUs. Was able to upgrade my GPU from a 6870 to 270x without replacing this mobo.
Summary: I owned this a little less than a year and was very satisfied with it until recently. I recently upgraded my GPU. I always take all the precautions when working with hardware. Simply removing my old card gently caused the PCIe 3.0 slot to stop functioning.
Pros: Was and worked as advertised for a little less than a year.
Cons: Very delicate and thin. Components are of low quality
Summary: i had one of this previously in a rig that i bought from a friend, i really liked the setup and was pleased with the mobo easy to use and boot up. this time around, i wanted to build a new rig and decided i would go with the same mobo. however, as soon as i installed it failed to post.
Pros: good quality handles itself well under a load pretty decent for a budget mobo.
Summary: I have contacted the RMA service about the 5 year limited warranty multiple times but still have not even gotten an automated return message.
Pros: Lots of PCI ports. Cheap Z77 that allowed Crossfire.
Cons: One of the Sata 6gb ports didn't work. USB ports stopped operating after a couple months of usage. Didn't care about it too much until it happened more and more often. Motherboard just died recently. Front audio USB didn't work.
Summary: This motherboard is really awesome. I couldn't ask for more. I bought 2 of these because I wanted a windows 7 system and a windows XP system to run some older software. Both boards work flawlessly with both operating systems because there is full support for both of them.
Summary: Sorry newegg!....this the only item from the build I bought from another company.
Pros: * Z77 for a moderate price. * everything is unlocked (VCore+Multiplier). So, you can do your own CPU/memory overclocking comfortably.
Cons: * Some of the connectors are placed in such an awkward place that it does not help you with the cable management. Look at the picture and notice the red front audio connector right behind the built-in 3.5mm jacks. **The IO connectors are usually placed to the back of the case and the front audio ...
