Summary: first board junk, 2nd board worked but ram on right side of board didn't work, 3rd board works like a charm. tech support on trouble shooting and finally getting me up and running , excellent!!
Summary: Great Mother Board. I originally had an Asus x79, ( the cheapest model ) This was a mistake. It would occasionally decide not to boot for hours or days. This new EVGA Board Not only out performs in day to day obligations but , I'm convinced that CPU and RAM performance is up also.
Summary: This was a board to replace a EVGA X79 Dark that was destroyed by a leaking AIO CPU Liquid cooler. The board works as good as the original except I did not look at the description closely as my original had built in Blue Tooth, this one did not.
Summary: Like everyone else the first one I got was a dud, one of the ram slots was dead (I updated the bios and everything) Now luckily EVGA is probably the best company I've ever dealt with for customer support so they sent me a new one that worked and had an up to date bios.
Summary: I want to start by saying that the board needs a BIOS update as soon as you get it. What will happen is that you will not be able to use any GPU in the upper class because it will Post Code you (B2). The fix?
Summary: So far, I've gotten everything to work fine except for memory and USB 3.0. Working on both issues now, but this is something I feel should work out of the box. I had 4-4gb sticks (16gb total) running on my old board but those same sticks won't all work at once on this motherboard.
