Summary: What can I say? It's an INTEL motherboard made for SLI. I know a few people have bad-mouthed this particular product, BUT, IT WORKS. After trying to save $90 by purchasing an EXTREME6 board, and 9 or so days of pure frustration with it (ASRocks tech support people are very nice but couldn't help me), I went to Orlando and purchased one of these boards. It was up and running in no time at all (grandkids love it for their games).
Summary: An Excellent Board. Very capable and fun to use. Suggest upgrade bios all the way to version 66. Do it incrementally, starting with version 45 and work your way to version 66. You can skip a few along the way, but be sure to wind up with version 66.
Summary: I am not going to spend a lot of time writing a review on this board, because the only difference in this board and the Intel Extreme DZ77GA-70K, is this board has a 10GPS Thunderbolt Controller, and costs more. I will say this though, this board is their best socket LGA 1155 board, and it is very stable, and runs Windows 8 Pro very well once you get the settings right. Both boards use the same drivers, and same bios versions. Word of advice.
Summary: Ordered the used board backed by amazon and love it. Only issue was some of the processor socket pins were out of place but I was able to reform them and it works great. No boot or operating issues. Would recommend this to anyone.

Summary: What better device to pair an Intel CPU with than an Intel motherboard? I've used products from ASUS and Gigabyte and liked them very much, but Intel offers similar performance for a better price. This motherboard houses my 3770k CPU overclocked to 4.2 GHz on air, as well as two Nvidia 560ti GPUs, overclocked to 900-1000 MHz on air.
Great Intel motherboard, Would use in future builds

Summary: I ordered this board to replace a faulty Gigabyte board, and was a little hesitant at first, due to the issues that people had reported. But I was soon happy that I had. This motherboard is fantastic, and there is little that I would change. The design is great, and the new black color fits in well, better than the old green. But honestly, the internal power and reset buttons are great, as is the internal POST display.
Summary: The first one I received had a damaged socket. Amazon quickly replaced it and this board is super!. It has all of the features I wanted including the BIOS overclocking. The board as 16GB 1600 RAM and a 3770E 3.8GHZ Processor. Fastest machine I have ever had.
