LGA 2011 motherboards

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I am looking into building a LGA 2011 system. I have always been a fan of EVGA products, but from what I have seen the EVGA LGA2011 boards are getting bad reviews. Are there really that many problems yet or is it just that the system is so new that there aren't many reviewers yet and its a small sample size?

I just want to know if I should stay away from EVGA for LGA 2011 or if its ok. Maybe I can get some insight from this great community.

Gear mentioned in this thread:

Thanks, but I don't want that cpu. I want the 3930k. I also don't like the color scheme on the sabertooth. I would rather go with the rampage if I have to go with ASUS.

What does anyone think about Gigabyte for X79? I had a UD3P back on 775 and that was a nice board.

Well i have the X79-UD3 and i love the board, It has a good power socket layout, the front panel stuff is mostly along the bottom which is ideal for most modern cases. The only thing i don't like are these new stupid Bios firmwares that use the mouse, they are kinda silly as the traditional bios without fancy 16 bit colours and mouse support was just fine.

As for its overclocking features i really can't comment there as i have only turned up the base clock on my cpu and kept it on stock volts as i would say it is enough for what i do.

PCI-E layout is good on the UD3 as it allows 1 space between cards if you two way SLI or Crossfire.

Although this is all irreverent as i assume you will be going for something more substantial than a X79-UD3.

Ok, I'm just really unsure of who to go with for LGA 2011. I have never been at this much of a loss of which company to go with for a particular component. From what I see, no one company has great reviews for their x79 boards. It seems like there are quite a few issues with x79. I'm not really sure in what direction I should go

Yes i too had this dilemma while moving to X79 although i was somewhat lucky as my budget limited me to about 5-6 motherboards. It was the Layout of the board and the color scheme that made me go for the UD3 and i'm quite glad i did. For the actual use of the board i have been on the X79 bandwagon since late January and the initial install went without a hiccup and the board has been flawless to now. However now i think about it there was one issue.

When i finished my windows Install i was very disappointing at the boot time of the System considering it was on an SSD. As it turned out it was Gigabyte's Update software. It scans all the software to check it's up to date throwing about 15 seconds on to the boot time ! So if you do go for a Gigabyte board avoid that "update software" like the plague.

I'll have to look at some more reviews before I decide. Most of the people here on OCN are on LGA1155, but if anyone else that has LGA2011 would like to chime in, I am looking for more opinions. Still on the fence between ASUS, EVGA, and Gigabyte.

To be honest you can't go too far wrong with any of those manufacturers. I don't have any experience with EVGA as they really don't operate in the UK more than graphics cards. Personally i have used quite a few ASUS boards and like them but i keep on seeing ASUS pop up here on OCN for having quite bad after sales support so you may want to keep that in mind.

I went with X79 specifically for the 40 PCI-E lanes, the 6 core cpu, and the freaking awesome Rampage IV Extreme. Well, that, and the fact that Socket 2011 still has a lot of life left in it. I would suggest getting the R4E.
