Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great to set up and Run Have had no problems No problems - appears to be working fine Not difficult to set up other than the CPU fan connector. These are situated in the middle of the board and can be a fiddle to access if using a large CPU fan. I have installed a Thermalright Archon CPU fan and this did make access to the fan pins tricky. As the connections have to be put on straight and level I was very conscious of other bits of the motherboard which I had to be careful of as well as the restriction in height from the pins to the actual fan. Whilst it is quiet clear from the description of the motherboard, all the articles written about it and the specification write ups state that all the PCI slots are PCI 16 it was not until I started attaching the bits and pieces that I was fully aware that there is no where to install an internal pci component like an IEEE card. It was just one of those things I was fully informed before purchase but it did not come to my conscious thinking until I was working on the motherboard. The RAM slots are well positioned in that I was able to populate all the slots without problem whilst having a large CPU fan installed. The user guide is easy to follow The BIOS update facility is much better. On other motherboards BIOS was updated using USB + opening the case and pressing a update button on the motherboard. With this board both the USB socket and update button are on the back plate so there is no need to open up the case. As I do not over clock or play games and all the case fans are controlled by an external fan controller I have not activated most of the software facilities that operate with this board so I am unable to comment. Going into the boot settings is easy and once in much of the information and changes that can be made are easy to understand and use. Some of the changes that can be made are for those who are experienced people not to be tampered with by the enthusiast - but then most people would not need to touch these areas. I used the information within the settings to identify which of the memory modules were not recognised. Whilst one was not recognised regardless of what I did, once I swapped the problem one with one that was showing up and placed the problematic one in its place all showed up as working. The AI Suit 3 is great for viewing and monitoring what is happening. It provides a lot of information and allows you to make a lot of changes. It shows temp and power of many of the components attached to the board. However it would have been nice if the temp or power of the individual items, could each be reduced to the size of the other icons also, transparent and able to be situated on any side of the screen left or right or top or bottom. This would be particularly useful when carrying out intensive CPU work when you know the temp of the CPU will rise. 15 May 2015
