Summary: Poor quality and the BIOS fails, do not recommend it to anyone. Bad experience and there is no guarantee in this article. I buy and what I could have done worse. Claims will not serve. They do not change, not repaired.
Summary: where to begin? first problem was the closed loop hang during bootup, had to press the reset button numerous times to get it to finally get to the bios screen. after checking that the settings were good i saved and exited -- to a bsod!
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.
Swept under the rug becuase its a DEFECTIVE PRODUCT!

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. I tried clearing cmos, All three of the bios on the board, even pulled out an old video card when I read that it could be a conflict with the evga 770 I...

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??
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.
Mediocre Motherboard, it does the job but why to hasle when you have many other brands outhere?
