Reviews
Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well, very pleased with it A nice motherboard with good features for my needs. Works well and I had no problems setting it up. Boot times are slightly slower with Windows 10 than my other Z77 system but not enough to bother me. It boots with a bios error code of '04' which is not documented in the manual. Looking on the web, this error code is either a failure of the northbridge/southbridge chip (requiring the motherboard to be binned!) or a simple information message on the boot state of Windows 10. Anyway, I have not experienced any problems with the motherboard in use. 27 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good It is a very good mother board. Be aware of the lake of PCI port inside (only PCIe ports). If you use PCI sound card or network card you won't be able to plug it. 11 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Mobo Bought this Mobo for my new build, it is quite simply amazing, it has been a while since I bought any computer upgrades and soo not disappointed with the purchase, 2 x m.2 slots for dual SM951's in raid.. black magic reports 4420mb's read 2500 write :) 17 September 2015
