I made mistake assuming that if Intel makes great processors their boards would be just as great. Newegg recommended an i7 3930k and DX79SR combo, so i went with that. System i was building is for work - After effects, Cinema 4D, Premiere Pro.
After pretty much a month of battling BSODs, driver updates, driver roll-backs, BIOS updates, BIOS roll-backs, swapping RAM, swapping coolers, replacing it with Newegg (i thought the first board was defective, so i replaced it), i'm giving up on Intel MoBos and returning it back where it came from.
Few issues i found with DX79SR:
-Does not work well with Nvidia Quadro 4000 - i had this card on previous system with no problems but on this board driver crashes and updates/reinstalls don’t help.
-Does not work well with SSDs - according to multiple forums, including this one. Not sure what the issue was there, mine worked until it didn't.
-Doesn’t support RAID well, even RAID 1. For this specific chipset, one would need to do a slip stream to add the drivers.
-It’s either on-board audio or add-on audio card - you cannot have both which means if you want good sound in your speakers forget about front panel headphones.
--end of pointless ranting--
That leaves me with a question - what board would work well with RAID 1 HDDs, 3039k processor and Nvidia Quadro 4000 and be stable at factory-clocked settings. Since this build is for work, stability is more important than surperfast performance.
