Conflicted on quality

  • 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.

Extremely Frustrating

  • 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.

Keeping fingers crossed on the third one

  • 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.
