The board has many good features: HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs, HD optical and analogue audio, and a reasonable set of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, along with three USB 2.0 headers and one USB 3.0 header, each of which should support two ports. The board supports up to 32GB of memory, has four 6GBs SATA ports (two driven by the Z77 chipset and two by a Marvel chip) and three 3GBs SATA ports. It supports front and back fans, and the latest GUI BIOs. It also supports over-clocking, although I have not implemented that on my system.
The Z77 chipset also supports the Intel RapidStore technology, which led to my first set of problems. I now have this running successfully with a single 2TB HDD and a 64GB SSD in a single array, with the 64GB SSD designated as the swap drive that accelerates the HDD. (Note: to use RapidStore, both the accelerated HDD and the SSD must be connected to ports controlled by the Z77 chip; you can't use the Marvel ports for this purpose.) I have a second 2TB internal drive that I use for backups. This is all working fine at present, and the SSD cache really does speed up the system. However, this is not quite the configuration I'd originally planned.
My original intention was to install the two 2TB drives as a RAID1 array (which the system sees as a single drive, with all writes mirrored on both HDDs), with the entire array accelerated via the 64GB SSD.Read more ›
1. One heck of a time getting it to accept all four sticks of RAM. Took a long time and a lot of troubleshooting to validate there was nothing wrong with the RAM. Finally, for some reason, the board accepted all RAM and no more issues there.
2. Card reader connected via USB 3.0 not consistently recognized. I had to unplug and plug back in the card reader for the computer to see it. Would work fine, until restart. Then would have to go through the process all over again.
3. Board would not recognize a TV tuner card in any of the three PCIe slots. This was a good card that I pulled out of one computer and stuck in this board. No dice.
The only issue that i have is no nic driver on this motherboard if you want to install as server OS. i have one machine running vmware workstation with countless VMS on 32 gbs of ram and other media/gamer/and some vms on 16 gb of ram.
After about 2 months, i updated to windows 8 and ever since my Marvel SATA control quit working. Drives all of the sudden disappear and the only way to get them back is to reboot the system.
P.S.: I'm using default BIOS version (Version 0057) and default BIOS configuration. The only thing is when you install the Drivers DVD on Windows, I recommend you to only check "Drivers" and uncheck "Applications" category. The applications are mostly bloatware and are not needed for this motherboard to work. Then you must update "USB 3.0: Intel USB 3.0 Driver" for this motherboard downloaded from Intel website (I'm using version USB3_Win7_188.8.131.52_PV.exe). Without this updated driver, I couldn't use my external USB 3.0 hard disk if I plugged it into USB 3.0 port, but it's still working if I plugged it into USB 2.0 port. After the driver is updated, I can plug my external hard disk into USB 3.0 port and enjoy the increased speed.
The second I received is an adventure in all the many issues with Intels DZ77 family of motherboards - if you really think you want to buy this, search on the product number in the forums on Intel's Communities support forum, where you will find many buyer horror stories and considerable indifference from Intel. Issues mentioned there I have experienced personally include:
- will not work with more than a single stick of 8Gb RAM
- blank screens during boot-up
- BIOS menu options that just don't work
- incompatibility with 3rd-party cards
I've wasted *days* of hassle and extra expense as a consequence. There's also stories of the USB3 header not working, and BIOS upgrades bricking the board instead of fixing documented problems.
In theory you can use the on-board HDMI and DisplayPort in dual-head mode, in practice I've not (under SuSE Linux) got this to work reliably.
I bought an Intel board because previous Intel boards had installed and lasted hassle-free for as much as 10 years' heavy use. This is *not* this kind of board. I'm highly likely to swap it for an Asus P8Z77 instead.
