Good motherboard

jbananna, Amazon

  • Summary: I haven't had any problems with this motherboard, the bios is great, and it has lots of features! As some others said I think there may be a problem with the DVI ouput on the motherboard itself, but since I'm using this for a gaming PC it dosen't matter since l have a graphics card. All in all I think its a great motherboard!

Bad DVI output

David Casper, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: This board installs easily and comes up easily. However I have been plagued with intermittancy in the DVI-D output. Particularly, it fails when Windows transitions from its default driver to the Intel driver, so the "welcome" screen does not appear and the screen goes blank. I would say this happens on 75% of boots, meaning one in four resets does work. After that output is good, but maybe once an hour or two, it flashes black for a couple of seconds, then comes back.

  • Summary: I found no issues with this boars, didn't need to update  bios to work properly, fast z77 board. I guess the previous poster got a lemon-i'm really happy with this mobo.
  • Pros: 2Xsata3 ports, 4xsata2 ports, crossfire, a lot of usb2 ports, 4x pwm fan connectors
  • Cons: 2nd crossfire slot blocks some sata 2 ports

  • Summary: I normally assemble at least 1 PC every year and this MB is the worst experience ever! DO NOT BUY! First, the PCIE x 16 slot (the other PCIE is only x4 and share with other PCIE ports for bandwidth) failed. It didn't detect all 3 dedicated graphical cards I tried (2 6850s and 1 GTX 650 Ti, all working on a similar spec MSI MB). I could only use the integrated HD 2500 from the i5-3450 CPU. I could use the x4 PCIE slot to post.
  • Pros: cheap, nothing else
  • Cons: 1 pcie x16, the other is only x4, pcie x16 failed from day 1, pcie x1 not compatible with any internal wireless card (tplink, asus that i have tried), very bad writing manual, troubleshooting has nothing meaningful, i have to search online for all the symptoms i encountered

  • Summary: Perfect for use as my home server. The Sata 600 interface has been used for the primary data discs used for backing up my home systems.

Worked for me first time

D. Fortune "www.youtube.com/eastangliauk", Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: After reading mixed reviews was worried and thinking I maybe should have gone with the ASRock. However after changing my PC and putting in an i5-2400 and VTX3D Black Edition Radeon HD 7870 (Tahiti LE) with a 650W XFX Pro XXX Edition 80PLUS Bronze Modular Power Supply it all boated first time so am happy its all working. They are many settings in the bios to which I will have to read about. This board also has just enough fan sockets to for my case which is 4.

  • Excerpt: Собрал машинку, базу взял эту материнку, выбор пал на нее потому что уже был печальный опыт с GIGABYTE и их мат-платами с Mini-SSD.
  • Pros: 3Д биос, возможности разгона, русский интерфейс, и разъемы питания кулеров расположены так что провода можно протянуть так что их вообще не видно
  • Cons: Разъем питания 8-pin находится в очень неудобном месте, при корпусе у которого БП снизу кинуть провода к этому разъему было просто подвигом, так же подключение Audio и USB с передней панели доставило массу хлопот(потому что вел провода через боковую стенку, корпуса GameTiger Xniper Pr-3), считаю что мало USB(но это мои придирки).

  • Excerpt: да этого была тоже gigabyte проработал 3 года без глюков. продал. решил взять надежную плату без ориентирования на сильный разгон.
  • Pros: все самые современные интерфейсы, всё летает , система запускается с ssd за 5 сек уже рабочий стол, есть какие то фишки по ускоренной загрузке и в самой плате в bios . 3d bios реально оч клёвая фишка, bios по русски
  • Cons: плата оказалась меньшего размера чем обычная разъемы с питанием и sata разъемы висят в воздухе. в корпусе под ними даже креплений не было предусмотрено. она уже чем обычная на пару сантиметров.
