Bought this Motherboard for gaming and its great, but after 1 day using it the problem started to show up. Basicly this Motherboard (DX79**) have a BIOS problem with Intel i7 3820, he shuts down after 5 seconds on start-up and you have to try a lot of times until it really start-up. The solution that Intel provides isnt good, they sugest to get a Intel i7 from the 39** series and update the BIOS to the latest version so it should solve the problem but its kinda hard to find someone to lend you a processor from that cost xD After trying a lot of times to update my BIOS with the i7 3820 it worked! (dont ask me how cause the BIOS problem wont let you restart the system LOL!). After the problem is solved you can use it normaly and I 100% recommend this Motherboard, just be carefull with the BIOS version that is on the Motherboard and what Processor youre buying :)

I got this for a custom build solely for data transfer. I must say, this thing blew my mind. I combined this with the lowest end i7 you can get for socket 2011 (i7-3820) and when the whole thing was set up (SSD on SATA 3, 16 GB DDR3-1333) I tested it with a 4 gb transfer, which it completed in seconds. The pipeline this board allows it way beyond anything I've worked on before. Not to mention all the cool features this brings to the table, or the goodies you get in the box with the board.
Anyways, it shipped, I got it, hooked it up, and fired it up. I don't know about anyone else's experience, but I haven't flashed the bios to get this thing to work. I do know that every batch has a few bad apples, and I guess I didn't get one.
As for the brand, let's see if I ever go cheapy off-name brands again. Intel has impressed me well beyond expectations.

I'm having trouble with the Thermaltake 850W TR2 power supply. I'm trying to power the drives and the Thermaltake power unit is being very finicky about cables. The basic MB cables are fine but the SATA power cable stops it dead in .05 seconds.

This board performs awesome!! Overclocking is easy and everything is super smooth. Just had bad luck and got one with dead memory DIMMS. Yes I did verify with working memory from another system. Once you insert more than 1 stick of Ram the system will not start.

This MOBO arrived DOE, it had two broken capacitors and twisted pins in the CPU location. I do not understand why it was manipulated.

La tarjeta llego muerta con dos capacitores rotos y los piines del chip donde va el procesador doblados, no entiendo porque fue manipulada.

Great stable board. Retail kit well furnished.
Just not enough SATA III ports: SR series takes care of that. Recommended!
