5.0 out of 5 stars More Bang for your Buck 4 Jan 2013
When I came to upgrade my computer to LGA 2011 I had to buy a new motherboard and after reading and watching as many reviews as I could handle it seemed to come down to a straight choice between this and the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. I eventually went with the Big Bang Xpower II partly because it has SEVEN full PCI-E slots and my previous mobo (ASUS Maximus IV Extreme - Z) felt a bit "restricted". The only criticism anybody seemed to have of the Xpower II was the "military" styling, with a large "gold bullet" heatsink and a "gatling gun" heatsink. In practice you never see these.
The board itself is HUGE; I showed a photo to a friend and they commented that it "looked like a small city!". If you want one you need to choose your case carefully -I have it in a HAF-X and it fills the case up.On all that real estate you do get a load of features; a nicely placed USB 3.0 socket, loads of blue LED's (these can be turned off in BIOS) and EIGHT RAM slots which will accept a total of no less than 128 GB of RAM.
At the price you expect nothing less than the best and I can't think of any real Cons except for the price itself, and possibly the styling.Also, the box includes a lot of accessories which I never use - I would rather that mobo manufacturers offered OEM boards for a price saving.

I bought this as I needed 4 x 16x physical lanes on my motherboard for 3 GPUs and a RAID card. I also purchased it because I love the plain black design. The only bad thing I can think of about this motherboard are the gun-styled heatsinks which really aren't my style, but other than that, this motherboard is great.

I absolutely love the onboard controls (PCIe power switches for debugging purposes mainly) are extremely useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great features. 21 Jun 2013

This product has a range of features that are outlined in some of the many instructional leaflets/ books, for example, you can overclock the processor in real time with the plus and minus buttons on the motherboard to see what your processor is capable off, and make the best judgement in terms of temperature to performance outputs, you you can really get the most out of your processor, it also has a little button that when pressed, (while your PC is off) the next time you boot up your PC it will have automatically overclocked based on what the motherboard thinks the the optimum speeds, a very handy little tool.

the MOBO comes packaged in a nice box, as seen in the pictures, and the MOBO it self (in my opinion) is very nicely designed stylistically and functionally, though I know that many people will not like the military theme, there is also lots of other useful (to some) components packaged in with the MOBO, I haven't found a use for all of them, though many will be useful for potential future upgrades.

I feel that this is one of the few motherboards that can compete and arguably outclass some of the high end ASUS socket 2011 motherboards, and boy does it do it well.

It's a good board, buy it if you want to make a socket 2011 rig, and if you don't like military themed products I'd highly recommend checking out some of ASUS's motherboards.
