    Great resourse and info on this Asus MB. I am starting a father and son build with the Asus P9x79 Pro. This build is for my son and we’re both excited to get this going. We are attempting to you tube this build. we are waiting on the video card and power supply to arrive. keep all posted on you tube posting.

    Hi JJ… I like to know, why is it that this systemboard, with an i7 3820, auto-overclocks to 4.8GHz in extreme mode, yet when I put the exact same hardware onto the P9X79 Pro, it wont go any higher than 4GHz?

    Whats the key difference between this board anf the pro version thats stopping the extra overclock?

    Exact same memory/GPU/PSU, everything the same except the systemboard. Both boards using the same updated BIOS versions and software too,

    Thanks mate

    Actually, the air speed of rising air is no where near that of air that is actively moved by a fan. Using the fans in your case, you can actually direct where you want your air to go. Having said that, you do need to be aware of “dead spots” where for whatever reason, there is no air movement. However, with enough fans that are intelligently configured, that should never be a problem. Just sayin’… ;)

    if you liquid cool them then it will work, but damn 3 slot cards? what cards you using? 2 slots to fit either I’m using two GTX 680’s

    Nice Video still a bit expensive not much cheaper than a ROG board

    Whilst playing games such as Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, etc. Would I be better off using this motherboard opposed to the ASUS Sabertooth X79

    The problem with this board is that it does not allow 2 way crossfire/sli on 16x slot if the gpu cards are three slots long!!! :(

    I now have to kiss goodbye to dual crossfire/sli DirectCU II idea :@

    considering that asus produce both the board and the card…

    i got p6x58d premium, and 6gb(3x2gb) corsair xms3 1333mhz, but when installed memory and booted… always got tripple and quadruple boots, then booted normally, but windows only dectected 4gb and cpu-z 6gbs but sometimes said dual-channel and sometimes tripple channel and 1066 instead of 1333… also when put system to sleep it wouldn’t wake up, just stood black.
    only way to fix was to populate slots 1,2 and 4, so no tripple boots, and 6gb ok, but dualchannle and 1066. some help?

    My new build is going to get this mb.

    Love the features but people say it has some bugs with the bios or something, I think they should update the bios before installation but that is me.

    Can you say the same JJ?

  10. INFILTRATORSTROGG 5:51 pm 3/03 of 2013

    is this motherboard good for video editing??

  11. Salamora1 6:18 pm 3/03 of 2013

    Could you actually stop repeating that actual word?
    You actually get on my nerves.

  12. Blib Blob 6:44 pm 3/03 of 2013

    Warm air rises only if there is no other force acting on it (the fan). Its actually better to block the 1st fan mount in the roof and add the fan to the second fan mount blowing in (the mount furthest from the back of the case).

    i just bought this motherboard because of this excellent video review. But I have a question: what is that blue USB connector which arrives in one plastic bag with ASUS Q-connector kit? Is it just an extension for usb cable? What is it used for?

  14. barnabyray11 7:12 pm 3/03 of 2013

    the camera man has no idea what hes explaining… he didnt zoom in on what the guy was talking about more than half of the time lol.

  15. Zainfear 7:54 pm 3/03 of 2013

    I was wondering about this aswell. Even the chassis’s manufacturer recommends cold air intake from below, hot air exhaust through the above fans. Otherwise a great video, made me buy my own P9X79 deluxe :)

  16. TheSosenki 8:29 pm 3/03 of 2013

    also I have noticed that You are providing 2 Gig NICS form 2 different manufacturers: Intel and Realtek. in this case I presume that teaming isn’t natively supported. I wonder what whas behind this decission to use 2 differend NIC cards..

  17. TheSosenki 8:49 pm 3/03 of 2013

    I want to buy this motherboard but this small Wi-fi antena doesn’t convince me.. i dont want to add another WiFi PCI card in case signal isnt catched by this tiny antena. What is the strenght of it? Also what interface do u use to connect this antena to WiFi module? Can I use any custom antenas present on the market?

  18. Digikid2007 9:19 pm 3/03 of 2013

    Also I heavily disagree with your so called “Cooling Theme” for your case. It is a bad idea to have the top fans blowing down as HEAT RISES.

    It is best to have the top and rear blowing OUT and a good fan or two on the front blowing IN.

  19. Digikid2007 9:53 pm 3/03 of 2013

    I am considering this board but I am disappointed by the choice of 2 x SATA6g ports on one controller and two more from ANOTHER DIFFERENT controller. I have sitting on my desk 4 x Intel 520 120GB SSD’s and am looking for a board that has 4 x SATA 6G ports all on the SAME controller. I want a 4 drive Raid 0. Hook me up Asus!!!!

    terrible camera work. stop zooming in and out. stop zooming out to show the guy talking.

  21. Kevin Hiers 11:22 pm 3/03 of 2013

    thanks for the video. nothing like getting info straight from the horses mouth. great for buisness in my opinion. GO ASUS
