Great review Eldonko,:thumb: the motherboard looks good with all its goodies. But I think I will hold off before spending Over $300 on a LGA1155 board until I see what the LGA 2011 are like.
Great review. Lots of work in it and its appreciated.
is voltage droopin on cpu n ram?
or jumpin +.03v-.06v on load
Nice review Eldonko!
Please refresh my memory if it has already been done, but have you ever benchmarked the Killer NIC? I always thought of that NIC as a gimmick. I don't see how optimizations at the chip can possibly make a noticeable difference when you have to go through a 6+ foot cable, then a switch / router, and most importantly the Internet to get to a game server.

That said, it's obvious where I stand with the motherboard - I'm not paying extra for that Killer NIC. Give me a motherboard with an Intel NIC and $20 less on the price tag and maybe I'll consider it.
Thanks all :thumb:
Depends on what LLC you use. LLC 7 gives about .01v more under load, LLC5 is about the same idle and load.
