Pros: heatsinked vrms, 4+2 phase, asus
Cons: x16 + x4 pcie, massive vdroop (on mine)
K so im gonna keep it short and simple, this board is great.
stable 24/7 OC on 1090T of 4.0ghz 1.47v (overkill voltage cause im working out getting a higher OC cause i think i can push more at my temps) and cpu/nb at 2.8ghz
8hours prime stable, no errors
10 passes regular intel burn test no errors
10 passes max intel burn test, no errors.
When i first set out on this board i didnt know anything about LLC or what it does, i just thought higher settings were better,
so i was not sure why under load my CPU volts would jump by as much as .1
100% LLC is too high for my board (dont know if this varies for models or per individual board)
i found my sweet spot was 75% which ramps up .03v under load.
LLC at 0% results in a massive vdrop of around .15v
i also at the time did not have proper airflow over my vrm heatsinks, they ended up burning my finger when i tried to see if they were overheating.
A simple 80mm fan on low speed accompanied by a side fan on my case was all i needed. They never get hot now and i dont shut down due to overheating.
Dont get this board if you plan to crossfire or sli, it will bottlneck with the 2nd pci slot.
This is an amasing board, especialy for the price it goes for these days. (see sub 90$ frequently)
I would purchase again for single gpu for sure.
