I really wish EVGA would get a better BIOS. After dealing with the Z87 Stingers....I don't envy you MAC for using it at all.
Maybe its just me..

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.

So it's looking like stability is not the issue and usability is?

The BIOS does not appear to be as good as has been noted as the other major vendors. Not as many options and a few other flaws. That can be a problem, especially for RAM timings and certain voltages for aggressive OCs.

The other issue I see is that EVGA has little to offer that's unique that Asus, MSI, or Gigabyte don't have. The one thing they have is good tech support, although I've heard good things about MSI as well in that front.

Correct. If you want to tweak every setting without any hand holding whatsoever, this is a good option.
