Great board so far.

Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this board directly from Amazon as a combo with the with i7-4820K CPU. The current bios being shipped by Amazon LLC was able to Post without any problems with this CPU. I used the built in bios upgrade feature to load the most current bios before I started on any OS setup, and the motherboard has been great so far. Not interested in overclocking, just looking for a fast stable setup, so no feedback on the overclocking features.

No POST with i7-4820K

Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: New motherboard and CPU (not bought from Amazon) will not POST but all lights on the motherboard work. The CPU fan is also working. After several hours of troubleshooting I found out this motherboard needs a BIOS flash update to support the IVY Bridge CPUs, even though the box has "Supports 2nd Generation Core i7 Processors" clearly printed on it.

2nd One Worked as Advertised

Mike, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: 2nd board worked as advertised, obviously it's a little short on USB 3.0 and SATAIII vs the Z87 stuff that supports Haswell, but I didn't feel like waiting for Haswell-E. Also, it works with TPM, which was a selling point for me.

Last of the PS/2 ports

Donald "COBOL guru", Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Years ago I had a mobo that had no PS/2 ports, just USB for the keyboard and mouse. Had a problem and the USB keyboard was not recognized by the BIOS so I could not enter the setup screen. I have never had that problem with PS/2 ports. This mobo is one of the few I have found with 2 PS/2 ports. I just wished the board had more SATA ports. Used an Highpoint Rocket 540L PCI card to give me an extra 4 SATA III ports. Board comes with several SATA cables and a good manual.
