I'll start off by stating the only real problem that I have on this board. It doesn't support 802.11ac. That's easily fixed by adding your own wireless-ac module, but at an added cost to your "project" of about 50 bucks. For those of you that don't have a wireless-ac router (and don't plan to upgrade to one), this really isn't an issue at all. But for those of us who chose to take advantage this newer technology, this board kind of leaves us hanging. Intel has labeled this board as part of their "Extreme" edition products and their "flagship" motherboard, which to me means that you should go all-out and spare no expense. For the life of me I can't understand how they can justify this, but oh well. Life goes on.
With that said, now I can start on all the wonderful features that it does have. For starters, it has EIGHT SATA III ports. For 99% of us, that's way more than we'll ever use. That opens the door for some serious storage capability, and all the while taking advantage of the fastest transfer rate available today (6gb/s). And as for the Intel Visual BIOS, I LOVE IT! Overclocking used to be a VERY tedious thing to do, but now they've made it easy for even a novice to do it. I am running the i7-4770k processor and Corsair Dominator Platinum 1866mhz memory. The BIOS user interface makes tweaking either of these a breeze. The ultimate goal is to get the most out of your machine that you can without sacrificing system stability.Read more ›
I really liked how many expansions were available. The power socket for the CPU was in kind of a tricky spot, cable management-wise, for my case, and will sit at the top or bottom of a vertical tower depending on which side you install it on. The Visual BIOS is nice (some good overclocking tools and savable/loadable setting profiles), as are the USB3 and USB2 headers. If you're going to use a large cooler, like Noctua's NH-D14, you are going to have to put in the RAM first, as the slots are too close to the processor socket to access the inner 2 after installation. If you have a large graphics cards for the 16x PCIe 3.0 slots, you will not be able to access the 1x slots directly below them. My board came with 4 SATA 3 cables and a 2-way SLI bridge. All of the connections are labeled clearly, which is important.
A note about wi-fi adapters: This board comes with an ABGN wi-fi+Bluetooth adapter that works well and connects via one of the USB 2.0 headers. I had purchased a wireless AC-compatible PCIe wireless card, and had both installed with the bundled adapter's wi-fi disabled to use its bluetooth component. For reasons that I have not been able to discern, this seemed to cause boot problems. It may have been struggling with deciding the order to power up the adapters in or something else, but boots would often freeze (this is with Windows 8 with UEFI enabled), and successive power cycles would fail to post. Removing the bundled adapter fixed the issue.
Putting up my whole new rig using this board on a Cooler Master N-300 with 4 fans was a breeze. It was quite a few pieces of hardware with a i7-4770K, 16 GB of 1600 Mhz DRAM an Intel 530 SSD and a few bulk Seagate drives and the Intel AC 7260 WiDi card, took me only a few hours. The installation instructions were clear with adequate references.
The Visual Bios is a real treat with its Overclocking Assistant. The fastboot option is real fast, the BBS button at the rear panel was a clever little trick which worked perfectly.
Only one small hardware quality hitch spoiled the show and dented my Intel loyalty of 20 years a bit. The plastic rubber housing for the USB 3.0 front panel pins on the motherboard came off while installing the rather robust Cooler Master USB 3.0 connector plug. I did not expect Intel to do such flimsy construction on such a high end "extreme" motherboard. Though I finished the assembly by carefully inserting the pins and fastening the interface cable down with a few zip ties to a few other cables in the assembly, if I ever have to take it out I will be in trouble. I kept it and moved on as it’s a bigger trouble sending the motherboard back to Amazon and get a replacement. Intel - please listen, you have a great brand image to protect, such poor material quality is not expected of YOU.
This mb fit the bill.
I used an i7 4770k processor, 16 gb of ram in a Corsair D700 case with a Corsair power supply amen other parts. Black WE drives for booting.
I have one raid and 4 drives more. Plus the cache mSata 64 gb ssd.
Jumping from an i7 early edition is a significant jump in performance. I am not a gamer.
But use lots of data and need it fast.
Very happy with my built.
