  • Summary: A few months after having this MOBO, the USB connections are starting to fail. Sometimes when certain USB ports are occupied, others decide not to work. It's very strange and becoming quite the nuisance.

  • Summary: I have several evga video cards that are just incredible, I wish the motherboard would have been as incredible. I can accept that on occasion things come in doa, but I guess they still haven't worked out their bios issues. Such a shame, it is a very pretty board.
  • Pros: Lots of good features, and the layout is nice.
  • Cons: Installed it, got a very pretty splash screen, and a checksum error. When I told it to go to the bios, black screen and a b2 error on the board.

  • Summary: This X79 fails soooooo hard.@the terrible Bios that doesn't work! Don't waste your money, as I returned it after just 15 days of agony!!! My old MSi Z68A put this deck to shame when it came to everything working as intended. No SSD caching?? Are you kidding??

Expensive piece of junk

pukey, Amazon

  • Summary: BIOS is a joke. System has locked up five(5) times, restarting system would not fix it, had to reinstall the operating system each time to fix the problem. Motherboard, CPU, Graphic Card all rated PCIE 3.0 x 16, can only get PCIE 2.0 x 16.

24 June 2013
  • Summary: Where do I begin? Go to the manufacturer's forum on this board. Loads of features, unfortunately it would be nice if they worked. Half baked BIOS/EFI implementation, poor slot layout, reboot loops, Erratum galore that everyone says "Wait for the X79 Dark" with no firm release date or step up...
