Summary: This is not my first custom rig, nor my last, but it could be my last EVGA board. While I got some good support from the EVGA team, the reliability of the board out of the box has been questionable at best. I am now onto my 3rd board replacement in the space of a month and have spent probably 5 hours in total on with EVGA.
Summary: The SATA 3 ports did not work out of the box. After fiddling around with it for an hour and half, I decided to switch over the drive to my SATA 2 port. It finally detected and allowed me to install windows on my SSD. The boot menu in bios is awkward at times, otherwise its livable. Honestly, this is the first time I have been this frustrated with a motherboard. I normally stick with EVGA as I have no problems with their other components and RMA/ support is great.
Summary: I'd like to begin by stating I've had this board from the end of 2012. Like Danielx79 I too had bad bios that would let you only as far as bios settings and no further. After getting my first replacement, the new board ran great for about a year and then experienced nearly the same issue. It would attempt a boot but hang in the middle of OS detection as it thought I was trying to flash the bios.
Summary: Assembled easily wth my i7 INTEL processor. Instructions were easy to follow. This was my first computer built from scratch and the whole process took only a day. Ran PC Matic after finishing and it was in top 7% of systems tested.
Summary: I got the mobo after I returned the Asus Rampage Gene IV, it is easy to set up without the trouble of updating the bios, only problem is for the windows 7 , it cannot work directly with the new mobo, you need to enable the ms ahci, their tech support is 24/7 and helpful, also the layout of the mobo is good and the operating temperature is extremely low, in my experience, with Corsair H60 water cooler, my cpu temp is around 27 deg C.
Summary: Performs exactly as expected, I've yet to be disappointed by an EVGA product. It is also nice to see them finally offer a motherboard where the BIOS has mouse drivers and drop down menus. Word of caution for those using multiple graphics cards: there is a pci-e slot order, similar to the way RAM slots are ordered.
