*** UPDATE Sept-2012 ***
I have changed my rating of this board from 5-stars to 3-stars because Intel has made a complete mess of bios updates the last few months, effectively crippling some key features for everyone, and actually turning it into a brick for some customers. Used with BIOS 0028 or earlier, I would stick by my 5-star rating. But BIOS 0035, 0036, and 0037 (current as of this date) have broken overclocking features and, in general, caused multiple stability problems. And once 0035 or later is loaded, the board can no longer accept an earlier BIOS. It has been several months since 0035 was released, and despite two subsequent releases (0036 and 0037), the problems have not been fixed.

So my opinion now is that if BIOS 0028 has all the features you need, this is still a 5-star board as long as you stick with 0028. But it's a 1-star board if you load 0035, 0036, or 0037!

*** ORIGINAL REVIEW ***
This is going to be a lengthy review, so let me start with a summary...

I am very pleased with this board. Plenty of SATA ports, plenty of USB2 and USB3 ports, integrated video, integrated audio, (2) PCIE x16 slots with support for SLI/Crossfire, and LucidLogix Virtu included. Add four memory slots with total capacity of 32gb, an eSata port, and a 1394 firewire port.

Lots of diagnostic LED's in case you have a bad component and can't boot. There is even a header for a serial port, although you will need your own cable and backplane adapter if you want to use it. Networking is provided by onboard Intel 1gb LAN adapter, plus an included Wifi G/N + Bluetooth adapter (installation optional).

I've been running this board for two weeks now and it has been rock-solid.

I went with this board because it was and Intel product and I love Intel I also have a I-2500K that I put in it. The first board would not boot up with any memory installed in DIMM 2 or 4. I talked with amazon and they gave me a refund and I purchased another board from a different vendor here on amazon. It went in and boot up with no problems. It's a quick board and is loaded with features. It scored a 5.4 on the windows score without a graphics card but with an NVidia 550ti it scored a 7.6. I have windows ultimate 7 installed on a Kingston hyperx 120 gb ssd and windows boots in under 6 seconds. FASTEST computer I have ever owned and it's the first one I built myself. I Would buy another Intel board in the future.

I get Intel motherboards for stability and support. This is the first one I have found that supports UEFI. I wanted to put 6 1TB hard drives in it and end up with a single 4.5 TB boot drive. I cheered when the bios showed my 6 disk raid 5 configuration as bootable. However Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise wouldn't let me use it unless it divided the drive into 2TB partitions. A call to intel blamed the hard drives. I didn't pursue that and just accepted the situation. Maybe there is some sort of incompatibility with certain hard drives? Mine are Seagate SV35.5 designed for multimedia use.

I am running 6 1TB drives in Raid 5, an extra 2 TB drive on the Marvel for backup, a blue ray drive on the Marvel. I have a MSI GeForce 570GTX card as the main video card for the primery monitor and a secondary GTS450 to drive two secondary monitors. I use the integrated Intel HD graphics to drive a fourth monitor. 16 GBs of Corsair memory.

No problems with anything except the RAID5 situation. Note also that each of the Intel SATA ports can be configured for online replacement, which I think is a higher end feature. I like the skull lights, control buttons on the board, and the new USB bluetooth attachment. Good board.

***UPDATE*** May 11, 2015
This will be my final update for this review of this board. I just received my 4th one less than a month ago after yet another RMA through Intel, and this one has bit the dust already. The last time I applied for an RMA I asked the Customer Service Rep what Intel was gong to do about this board since my warranty is up in June off this year, and Intel flat out gave up on fixing this board and left me with a POS that I can't even use for more than a few weeks. He told me that if I had to RMA it again before my warranty was up, that they would reimburse me for the board, since this would be the 5th RMA. I took my i5-3570K and installed it on a DZ77GA-70K board and it has worked perfect ever since. I hopes that I would actually be able to use this board, I went ahead and purchased an i3-2120 CPU, which is a second generation processor, so I figured it would work fine as long as I didn't upgrade the BIOS past 0028. Well the RMA I had before this one (#3), I received a 402 Revision board, that already had BIOS 0035 on it. I tried to use it for a while, but after about a month it gave up the ghost and I had to request another RMA (#4). I received the replacement for RMA #4 last month, and installed it back into the computer. I got it to boot up, and was able to get into the BIOS, and checked the BIOS number which was 0028. I thought that this may actually work, so I went to start loading Windows. As soon as I exited the BIOS, the computer restarted and then got stuck in a boot loop. I downloaded the 0028 BIOS and copied it to a flash drive, then tried to do a BIOS Recovery flash. It went through the process and said that it complete and verified. I shut down, reinstalled the BIOS Jumper, and then went to boot again.
