"This board features a very aggressive looking thermal design and uses Intel’s Skull logo on the chipset heat sink. Overall this is one of Intel’s best looking and most flushed out boards that we’ve seen. It even has onboard power and reset switches and a post debug LED to troubleshoot boot errors."
"The Asus board is the only one among the four to cut the cord on FireWire. That's somewhat disappointing in light of the fact that the P9X79 PRO is among the most expensive of the lot. At least the board features Realtek's latest ALC898 audio codec, which also appears on Gigabyte's X79-UD5."
"It's that time again: a new Intel processor line, along with the requisite new chipset and new motherboards. Intel's "Sandy Bridge Extreme" line of processors requires the massive new LGA2011 socket, which in turn is supported by the new X79 chipset. Intel provided a prototype of their top-end DX79SI motherboard with a Core i7-3960X Sandy Bridge E processor for us to test, and Benchmark Reviews will put it through its paces in this review."
"Today we're looking at the Intel DX79SI, a board that a lot of people may ignore. With a strong name for creating rock solid boards, though, Intel offerings continue to be quite a nice option for people who are looking for something that they want to know is backed by the company that makes the processor they're installing in it."
"The box with Intel DX79SI mainboard is beautifully designed and looks very impressive. The skull traditional for all Extreme series products is almost a 3D image due to a flip cover, and its eye sockets are shimmering because the mainboard itself partially shows through the clear plastic window beneath the cover."
"Intel has released two motherboard models for the new socket 2011 platform, the DX79SI and the DX79TO, targeted to the most high-end processor Intel offers for desktops today, the Core i7 "Sandy Bridge-E" models. Let's take a look at the DX79SI, which comes with three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots."
"Well, they do, and today I’ll be looking at their latest high-end DX79SI motherboard designed for the enthusiast community. Price at around $280, the DX79SI is not out to compete with the likes of ASUS RoG series or Gigabyte’s G1 series of motherboards. Instead, it’s content with providing you with a strong platform on which to work, but probably not exceed expectations."
