    Wanted x16/x16/x16 and got it! Small sacrifices were necessary, but no biggie.

    So many things to play with on this board. Problem is work is getting in the way of tweaking with it.

    Really like this board & the way the EKWB mounts on the X99.

    There were some negative comments about the BIOS of this board and a few DOAs - but perhaps those have all been solved, because this motherboard as of mid-2017 worked like a dream out of the box. I was in two minds about this board and a cheaper X99, but in the end all the bells and whistles in this beautiful piece of kit sold me. There are USB 2, 3 and 3.1 ports - there's wifi, dual linked Intel network, there's a thunderbolt 3, as well as a PXE chip to help chips like the 6800k overcome their 28 PCI lane limitations. The board is rugged and while I initially wasn't a fan of lights - I have now been suckered in, and purchased additional LED strips, a glass side to the case - and my entire PC now pulses coloured lights as music plays. Knocking one star off for still being an expensive board.

    The board is quite amazing, I'm really happy I didn't go with any other brand/model. There are lots of handy features like built-in Wifi and there are 8 SATA ports which is perfect for me. Plus, 128 GB Maximum RAM Support? I mean are you kidding me? It's amazing! Don't forget the x16/x16/x16 feature.
