Best of the Best and boy is it fast

Dale in Texas, Amazon
1 February 2015
  • Summary: Intel's best socket 2011 board. Works wonderfully, but Bios is real touchy to upgrade, and you must do that before you build. It takes time, so don't get in a hurry. I believe the latest Bios is 650. I checked again, it is!

This Board does more than I knew it would!

Dale in Texas, Amazon

  • Summary: Spaceout is great, and I'll tell you why. I have built many Intel computers of the high end type. I have used the DZ77Ga70K, the DZ77RE-75K, the DX79SI and the DX79TO, and out of many, I have actually only had 3 bad boards, and one of them had bent processor pins.

Problems, but doing OK

Richard L. Rankin, Amazon
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Problems with NVidia GTX7** based video cards, had to add second power supply. If you can get your 2400 RAM to run at 2400, tell me how. Works great otherwise - using 3930K 2x240 GB SSDs and 2 1-TB Velociraptors on RAID card + 240 GB SSD boot. I use for data analysis and it just screams.

Poor Quality

GearHead, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this board on January 31, 2013 and assembled my computer the following week without issues.

I bought another one anyway.

Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: I find myself writing a relatively enthusiastic review of this board, despite the fact that I just sent my first one back to Amazon due to a component failure. The first one performed exceedingly well for 4 days, during which I tortured it with a 4-disk software RAID 5 (we're running Linux, Ubuntu...
