Overall and FV

After spending time with the TPower X79 I am really happy with their first real effort to get into the enthusiast market. It’s obvious they are taking into account what gamers and enthusiasts what in their boards. That’s not to say it was perfect. I didn’t like the use of so many colors with both the board itself and also the SATA cables. I would like to see them lock it down to two colors and run with it. The red and grey they selected for the cooling looks amazing and is unique, this would be a good one to go with.  The UEFI bios is always a nice touch also. I would keep an eye out on Biostar; I expect to see them making even more amazing boards. They are no longer just the budget manufacture of the past.

I will be interested to see what the support is like down the road. I am wondering what the BIOS updates will look like to be exact. Will they be updating it regularly or skimp. Should be interesting to see.

Then again, most people will buy the 3820 CPU and this would be a great board for that CPU.

For me, i'll stick to the big three, Asus, Gigabyte and MSI.
