Great board so far.

Doug, 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.

Last of the PS/2 ports

Donald "COBOL guru", Amazon
4 December 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.

No POST with i7-4820K

D. Truex, 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
17 October 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.

User Review

Борис, citilink.ru
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Отличная плата, единственная в своем роде без лишнего шлака в виде дополнительных контроллеров. Красиво выглядит, имеет множество дополнительных опций, который в России не продаются, а жаль.
  • Pros: Завелась с первого раза. BIOS уже имел поддержку процессора 4930K, никаких проблем не возникло. Нет лишних свистелок, в виде дополнительных контроллеров SATA3 и eSATA, которые подключаются к чипсетным линиям PCI-E x1. Интегрированы только два контроллера USB 3.0, каждый из которых подключен к одиночной чипсетной линии PCI-E x1.
  • Cons: Не внятные функции авторазгона. Большинство настроек, в том числе и фич виртуализации размещено в разделе меню Overclocking в BIOS, в общем много не логичного и не очевидного. Высокий радиатор на верхней части платы, может помешать установки систем охлаждения в различных корпусах.

  • Summary: Condensateurs de qualité supérieure. Chipset x79 compatible également avec certains processeurs Intel Xeon. Possibilité de monter jusqu'à 128 go de RAM en quad channel pour les plus exigeants. Seul la vitesse des transferts USB 3.0 serait à améliorer sur cette carte mère qui reste vraiment à recommander.
